It rarely actually helps to clean the laser for the PS3. It needs a new laser because the old one is "burnt out". It's a really common problem with them.

I buy mine at http://parts.consolerepairguy.com they run about $75 each.

I run a repair business and that place has best prices aside from Hong Kong which I don't trust.

PS3 won't play blu ray or games. Will play


Mine just did the same thing two days ago. i have been researching the internet about this cause im not about to spend 150 through sony. anyway what is going on is there are two seperate diods in the laser compartment, one reads blurays and which is also ur games because they are consetered blueray also, and the other diod is for regular dvd and music cds. sounds like the blueray diod has took a ****. To get that part you have to order a new laser which is 150. youtube will show you how to change it. looks very easy

My PS3 playd cd dvd but not blue ray games


Problem with the laser it sounds like. If you still have the system apart with the dvd drive out, go ahead and replace the laser. You can usually find them on Ebay.

Reads Blu-Rays and PS3 games but won't read DVD's or CD's?!?!


DVD portion of your blu-ray drive went out. It's a three part laser (cd / dvd/ blu-ray).

The ONLY way you're gonna be able to fix it is by replacing the blu-ray laser or by getting your machine serviced by Sony.

I need to take apart my ps3 and clean the lens but i dnt no how


Try using a lens cleaner CD first. Most of the time a PS3 wont read BD because it's malfunctioned so you may have to send it in to Sony.

My ps3 wont read ps3 games it only reads some ps1 games and some ps2 games.


This is the number one problem PS3 owners encounter. It's a Sony defect. The blu-ray drive is a three part laser ( cd / dvd / blu-ray). The blu-ray portion always goes out. That's why you're still able to play a few of your DVD PS1 and PS2 games.
