There is a problem with your blu-ray drive.

It's a three part laser ( cd / dvd / blu-ray)

Lucky for you only the dvd portion has gone out. For most people it's the opposite, blu-ray.

You can try looking at some of my pasts posts on how to fix this problem. I'm no longer allowed to point you to my blogsite which has detailed explanations, tips, etc.

Hope this info helps.

When i entered the cd to my ps3 it wont eject anymore and it does'nt appear in the menu???


If the PLAYSTATION 3 does not recognize the disc: To PS3 Support Site

  • Remove the disc and reinsert it.
  • If the disc has a label, insert it with the label side up.
  • Check whether the disc is scratched or dirty. If dirty, wipe it gently with a soft cloth.
  • Make sure the disc has not been exposed to high temperatures, high humidity or direct sunlight. When discs will not be used for an extended period of time, store them in their cases. Stacking uncased discs or storing them at an angle can cause them to warp.
  • DVD-R/DVD-RW/DVD+R/DVD+RW discs that have not been finalized cannot be played.
  • When outputting DVD content or PLAYSTATION 3 format software in SD resolution, only discs recorded in the NTSC standard can be played.
If You need to Contact Customer Service Call Sony at

My ps3 wont play ps2 games. it worked then i left and came back and it didnt work anymore. ps3 games still play but not ps2.


It sounds like the dvd lens has packed up, but not the blu ray lens. Are the ps2 games your trying to load all clean? Do DVD's work? If not it sounds like your lens. So phone sony its a job for them, if you from the uk, and ps3 is under 1 year old it'll be free of charge, other countries are different.
