Ps3 won't play dvd once it is inserted

Is it a regular DVD? Or a burned one. It is possible, that if it was a burned copy, the format might not be supported. If it is a regular DVD, than only 2 options it could be. The easy one is, check the DVD. Are there any big scratches or smudges that would cause it not to read. If it is a new DVD, than there is a real possibility that your Blue-Ray disk drive is on it's last leg and will need to be replaced.

My ps3 will play regular dvd discs but no games whats wrong?

It's quite likely due to a weak Blu Ray laser. The DVD and BluRay are 2 different lasers so it could still be able to read and play DVD/CD but not the BluRay games.

My pse will not play any dvds. When i put the dvd in the loading icon appears but the dvd never appears on the menu screen

Your laser is probably starting to go weak. See if it will play music cd's or any othe regular games as well as any other dvd's.

If it can't play any of them on a regular basis then the laser is going bad and either the laser needs to be replaced or the whole drive needs to be replaced. Its cheaper to buy a new laser as long as your handy about opening the drive and swapping out the laser. If your not handy then swapping out the whole drive would be easier. You can go on Ebay to find either a good laser or a whole drive.
