If its less than one year and under warranty your best bet is to call Sony and get it replaced/repaired..i had the same problem and had to get the bluray mech replaced {no service in India :( }
hope it helps!regards!

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 PS3 wont play any movies but still plays video games???


Ok so its 60GB its definatly alright to play movies and all sorts, but if you are that desperate to watch movies then you may want to reset to factory settings just access settings and look for reset console, then it would start from square 1 you have to make your accounts and earn your trophies again but if you want to watch movies desperatly then recommed you do that or go to game settings in the game column and have a poke in the folders because there might be a few things in there or go to the film column and check for setting sin there or go to the settings column and check for film settings in there its nothing to do with the updates thats for sure because ive done the same as you but havent played the game in a while but im still able to watch films

Playstation3 not working


Please post any solution that you may hear of. I have spoken to Sony and searched many forums and have come up with nothing. Except that one guy claimed he had this problem and when he installed linux his machine was able to use the drive thru linux.
