    I have the same problem it reads DVD's and PS2 games but no blu ray content. I opened my unit and know how to replace the laser and I've cleaned it plenty of times. I'm waiting on my replacement laser now but I am wondering a few things. I see the blu-ray laser light up try to read the disc then the red regular laser come on then try to read the disc then it repeats this process then gives up trying to read the blu-ray. Could this be the controller board and not the laser tho I did notice the blu-ray laser wasn't as bright as it used to be but i'm not sure as the last time i opened it was a while ago.

Order new blu ray laser online and switch it out yourself with help on the internet. Look up how to replace ps3 laser lens, and you can get photos to help you. I just got my new laser 3 days ago. I switched it out and everything is working great.

    You probably opened your system before and accidentally damaged that hair thin red and black twisted pair. Those wires power the sensor that tells the PS3 to turn on when a disc is inserted or there is something blocking the sensor.

SOURCE: Playstation 3 wont play PS3 Games

ok right so your ps3 wont read disks huh well first of all id like to say this has happened to me twice and it has worked perfectly for me and i quarentee it will work for you ...

first save all your data to a memory stick

secondly go to settings, system settings, and format your ps3 by clicking on full format this will delete all your filles :( but will refresh your ps3


BTW this formatting thing will take atleast 4 hours so just leave your ps3 on and chill out watch t.v or something :)

hope this helps

My ps3 wont run ps2 games


The reason why ur ps3 40gb wont run ps2 games is because its only a 40gb. If u had a 80gb ps3 then u could play ps2 games.

60gb ps3 wont play ps3 games


The issue is the laser (actually has different diodes for blu ray, ps2 format and regular DVD.
Seems like in your case the only one that is burnt is the blu ray.
Send it back to Sony for repairs or if you do not have warranty purchase a replacement lens and install it yourself.
