    I have the same problem. My 60 GB PS3 reads DVDs, but not Bluerays.

    For a while it SOMETIMES read the game discs but lately the game freezes and the disc doesn't show up in the XMB anymore.



    I keep all my discs superclean and have never done anything that could damage the system.

Your bluray laser has a 2mode light one at 450nm and the other at 720nm wavelengths. the 450nm pulse is not working therfore no bluray disc or game can be read. very common. change the laser with sony for 150+tax or i can fix it for 100

My ps2 wont play blue disc i have a action replay for nfsu2 for ps2 and my ps2 wont read it can i fix it?


Blue colored disks are the hardest for your ps2 to read, there is an adjustment to try to improve this, but it requires opening your console and digging into the DVD drive. Most people don't bother with it unless it won't play other disks. Here is a link to instructions:

My PS2 is not loading Grand Turirsmo 4!


If your PS2 works fine with most of the games and won’t play a few..Then you should try this trick to play them too on your PS2:
  1. Turn on your PS2 without inserting any disc.
  2. Menu screen will appear like:6e4cb56.jpg
  3. Press the (triangle) Button to enter Version Information Menu that looks like9d90dc8.jpg
  4. Highlight the Play Station Driver as above and again press (triangle).
  5. New screen will appear likedd8fb1a.jpg
  6. Highlight the Disc Speed as above and press X button,to enter Disc Speed Menu
  7. And set it from Standard to "Fast".
  8. After you set Disc Speed to Fast, Press and Hold Reset Button to turn off your console.
  9. Then again Press and Hold Reset Button till the Blue Light turns on.
  10. Remove the Reset Button and Press it again.
Be patient and wait till the game loads itself. If your lens is in good condition then it will play game in first go else try again till it PLAY your game. If still your Grand Turismo 4 DVD wont work then you must clean your PS2 lens.Watch following video to learn about cleaning lens:
Thank you and Good Luck!

Play station 2 won't read silver disc only reads blue disc


Hi Elvis,

The Blue back disc is CD format. The DVD laser circuit is giving you trouble. You can adjust the DVD pot some on the back of the Laser. Turn it about 3 degrees clockwise. Then put it the laser back in. Test the PS2 with no cover on, and use the white round disc from the laser drive cover to clamp a disc onto the spindle. Test DVD and PS2 Games that do not have Blue back.
