My ps3 will play dvds and ps2 games but wont play ps3 games or blueray dvds

Hi, the problem you are having is with the bluray part of the dvd drive the only way of getting this sorted will be to replace the whole dvd drive, first check if you have any warranty before you let anyone do any work on it if you have warranty then you should be covered, check on the ps3 site about how much warranty sony offer from new.

if you have no warranty left then you need to find someone who knows how and what to do, their are several different dvd drives for the ps3 so this will need checking before you buy a new dvd drive, then once you have got the right drive its not just a case of taking the old out and putting the new in what you need to do is take the main circuit board off your old drive and swap this with the one on the new drive. the reason you have to do this is when the ps3 was put together the dvd drive and the main circuit board in the ps3 where married, ie these parts were joined together with software now as sony have done this you cant just change the whole dvd drive over as the new one wont be recognised by your ps3 as it will have the firmware of another ps3 serial number so you need to change the circuit board off the bottom of your dvd drive and swap this onto the new dvd drive, than when you fit the drive your ps3 will think its the old drive and it will then be working.

its not easy to do and its difficult just to take the ps3 apart so be warned.

let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance

please rate this solution as i have a whole page of unrated posts, thanks

Ejecting a stuck dvd

You'll have to take the console apart.

Here's a video guide.

Keep in mind you'll need a special T10 Hex screwdriver with a security hole like THIS one. Otherwise you'll have to break / pry off the top cover of the PS3.

OH but I just remembered. If you have a flatblade screwdriver that's just the right size you can jam it into the security screw and unlock it that way as well, but be carefull you could strip it!

Here's a guide that will help you out the rest of the way.

One more thing, guide doesn't include how to open the top of the console but it's common sense. Just unscrew all of the top screws ;)

Hope this info helps.

My friends PS3 wont pla any games or dvd/blu rays..Everything else is perfect..He has the 80 gig ps3, he has had it for two years

its a bug in the latests update that caused the bluray to go nutts in basic terms... theres a few things to do, but if its allready 2 years old theres no warrenty on it anymore, so no matter what the 2 of my options will cost money, wich that cost the most i dont know.

but here they are :

1. Call Sony and have them take a look at it, they will charge a fee for it, about 150$ i think.
2. Get a BluRay unit yourself and replace the faulty unit. (guides can be found on youtube.)
3. Wait to Sony releases a fix for this. (wich may never happen. who knows)

and i know how frustrating it is... cause my ps3 is doing the same thing :( and i advise you to hang in and hope sony release a fix, cause theres no need to pay them for a mistake they caused, or thats my point of view.

80 g ps3 will only read the ps2 games

your blu-ray laser has failed. it has three parts, blu-ray, dvd, and cd. They all use different components so when one fails the others still work. Your laser needs to be replaced. I offer that service for $130. I believe sony does it for 140. good luck.

Finally would be to find out your warranty, you,ll be needing it.
