My method which works for my PS3.


1. Start up the PS3 and insert the PS3 game you wish to play.


2. Start up a demo which you can download from PSN.


3. Once in the demo, press your PS button on your controller and go to the XMB.

4. Go to the Game tab and you will probably see the game disc icon.

5. Start the game directly from the demo, don't quit the demo because it won't work.

This works for my PS3. I don't know if it will work on yours, but you can give it a try.

SOURCE: Playstation 3 will not play games or read disc.

Hello,

I will advice you clean the lens of your ps3 player, cleaning the lens of the ps3 player will make the ps3 player read the disc, if the problem is not solve after cleaning the lens, it means, you will need to replace the lens on your ps3, the lens might be weak that it can no longer read any disc or play any game. the two options above should fix the problem of your ps3.

Take care.

Hi have a plystion 2 the slimline one for a month now. It plays cds great but doesnt read any games i also have a problem with the usb it doesnt pick it up. What can be the fault


Ps 2 can't read all cd hand types. We have NTSC and PAL. So try and buy these cd types to know the one that works on your console. If stillborn, then post again.

It won't read the disk


if your ps3 doesnt play ANY games or dvds, that may mean that the eye on the ps3(the thing that reads the disks and dvds) is malfunctioning, not moving efficiently enough to procces the disk, not recognizing the encrypted code on the disks, or the optical eye could even be scratched. the disk feed could also not be feeding the disk in far enough for the eye to read it. i would definitly suggest calling customer service and/or bringing the ps3 to an A+ certified technition to "diagnose" your problem.

Ps 2 chipped


I have also envountered problems with dogs life, my only reasonable explination is:

 

dogs life is most propably written on a normal CD-R,

and sometimes a chipped PS2 struggles to read CD-R games, you will also find that older PSX games wont work either, hope this is of some help.

 

have a blessed day.
