I was watching a blue ray movie and it froze, so i took it out and restarted the ps3, then when i put it back in, it loaded the movie then it froze again. So i turned it off again, then when I turned it on It won't load the movie or a game. The loading symbol in the top right corner stays on for about 15 seconds but then goes off and it don't show the game or the movie on the main menu. I would appreciate it if you could help me. Thanks

Re: My ps3 will not play blue ray or my games.
The blue ray laser has two high energy beams at 450nm(bluelight) and
730nm (redlight). the highpower diode on your machine im afraid has
failed (due to the extreme heat conditions in ur PS3). you need to install a new laser ..only 100 i charge or 160 from
sony (150+TAX 2 week wait)
Now if you have the newer model laser KES410ACA, then you have 2 SEPARATE light sources...these tend not to fail as often

Hi there, Most PS3 systems end up doing this due to an over heating of the laser lens. Let me explain: The laser lens in the PS3 is made to read mainly Blue Ray games. The movies need to be read faster than the game discs which causes it to work harder thus the problem arising. Sometimes, your lucky enough for this to only be a dirty lens problem due to rental movies which are most of the time, if not always, dirty. Have you tried a lens cleaner kit?
This is the CD-ROM with a small brush on it to clean your laser lens head.
This problem has happened to me in the past and this solved the problem.
It is a common problem for any lens reading console.
think your lens may be very dirty. And also please tell if the problem is only with this movie or all the other movies as well? moreover, if your lens is dirty, you'll have to clean it using a lens cleaner, OR get it replaced lens). I got my PlayStation's lens replaced when it was giving me trouble and all was fine after that. Best of luck.
