I have a playstation 3 console 80 GB, almost 3 years old.... was working excellent. But yesterday started with a problem, doesn't want to read and play either PS3 games or BluRay movies. But still...


I am having the same exact issue myself. Starting a month or two ago, it got harder and harder to get PS3 games to play. Now it plays anything that is not blu-ray based. I would be very interested in hearing how you are able to fix the problem.

My playstation 3 stopped playing playstation 3 and playstation 1 games. It will only play dvd's.


Your blu ray drive is shot. The drive motor has to operate much faster to read a game then it does a regular DVD. Eventually your PS3 wont play DVDs but will play CDs.. same reason.. then nothing.
I would consider replacing now. Ebay is a good place actually to buy good blu ray drives for cheap. if your not under warranty I could get you a guide on how to do it, or you could send it to me and I could do it for you. Either way. let me know

Wont play games or dvds


I take it that you have performed the initial set of up the PS3 system 1 If the DVD/Games do not match the region code set in the system it can not be played. 2 When out putting DVD content in SD resolution, only discs recorded in PAL standard can be played. Remove the parental control restriction by increasing the viewer's age. 3 Games with Playstation 3 format software can only be played. Please check this aspect.

The playstation 3 plays dvd's but not games it does not load them up at all.


1 Discs that are not compatible with the system cannot be played. 2 Games that can be played on this system have to be on PLAYSTATION3 format software. Playstations format software canbe played but may not perform correctly. Please check if the games you wish to play are on this format. 3 Please check if the data for PS3 format software is saved on the system's hard disk. The data is displayed under Game - Saved data utility

Problem with Tetris on PS2


Maybe the disc is scratched (Check the bottom of it) which would explain the disc reading error, or the lens are dirty (Should get a DVD Cleaning KIT), which also explains it.
