My playstation plays bluray and dvds but cant read the ps3 games. Is it a problem with the laser?

Hi kjetil614


1) Trying installing the latest system software update (which can be downloaded directly from the network or you can download the file from

2) Trying restoring the default settings. (This can be found under system setting on the PlayStation 3 settings menu). Be aware that this WON'T remove the content from your HardDrive. Be sure that you selecting Restore Default Settings AND NOT Restore PS3 system.

3) The final suggestion would be to perform a soft reset. When the PlayStation 3 system is in stand by mode (the red stand by light). What we need you to do is hold your finger down on the power button consistently for two beeps instead of one beep. When the second beep is triggered, lift your finger from the power button & the main menu should come up.

How do i change my sony playstation3 from high definition to normal television

Hold the ON/OFF button on the system while its turned on. It will turn on, then back off, and beep a few times. Thats a soft reset. Should do the trick and wont hurt anything. Wont lose anything either.

The ps 3 is tell me that the hard disk database will be rebuil push ok. When I hit ok it comes back to the same message.

You need to reset the unit to factory defaults and perform a system update. If the unit wont allow you to do it, you must contact Sony for them to replace your hard drive

sounds like you may need a new laser lens. Can you hear the game, dvd or cd spinning when inserted. If its spinning and not reading i would think its the laser lens. I think KM400AAA is the one you will need. Is this a 60gig model?

turn hard switch off in the back of the unit. Then put your finger on the soft switch on the front of the unit. While keeping your finger on the soft button in front, switch the hard button in the back to the on position and keep finger on the soft button for 10 secs, this will reset your vid settings.

1. Take your Sony Playstation Portable (PSP) and hold the power switch for approximately 10 seconds.

2. After approximately 10 seconds the Sony PSP will shut off. Leave off for 30 seconds.

3. Flip your power button on your Sony PSP once, and in some cases twice. The Sony PSP will start up and should resume normal performance.


Disconnect the power cord / remove battery and hold down the power button.
