    Our Playstation 3 console froze while playing a Blu-Ray disc last night, and now it won't recognize any kind of disc. Sony -- 800/345-7669 -- has asked me to gather the exact model number of our machine, along with the purchase receipt showing that we've owned it less than one year (the warranty period), so that I can call back and arrange to send the unit to them for repair/replacement. Without the receipt, the cost will be $149 plus tax.

Dvd works on ps3 but games wont. cleaned lens aswell. also reset system


Hi,

Unfortunately the PS3 has a high failure rate on its laser lens mechanism. The lens on the PS3 is setup with a dual refractor - one for reading DVDs and the other for reading Bluray and game disks.

What you are describing is absolutely typical of a lens failure where the unit is reading DVDs but not games and as you have already tried cleaning the lens the only way to fix it is to replace the lens mechanism. This is not as difficult as it sounds and you are already half way there if you managed to clean the lens yourself.

For a full walkthrough on what is involved please see this FixYa Tip.

Thanks for using FixYa.

My ps3 wont read any disk compatible with the ps3


My PS3 stopped reading my PS3 games last month, but it was still able to read DVDs. I looked it up online and learned that it usually happens when you smoke a lot around your PS3 while it is running and a film builds up on your blu-ray lens. I followed this YouTube video and had it playing my games again fine. Hope this helps.

Wont read game disks,but will play dvds


This can be caused by a dirty laser in the drive. try cleaning the laser with a q-tip and rubbing alcohol. If this does not fix the problem you will need to get the laser replaced. If it is still under warranty contact Sony with this site: https://service1.us.playstation.com/rma.htm?_flowExecutionKey=_c71000C59-AA41-E39E-0F5C-E9201DBE7B2B_kA7F58291-2AE5-F8BD-E0D2-C63AAC401CB1

My ps3 wont play blue ray discs or my games anymore


if your ps3 doesnt play ANY games or dvds, that may mean that the eye on the ps3(the thing that reads the disks and dvds) is malfunctioning, not moving efficiently enough to procces the disk, not recognizing the encrypted code on the disks, or the optical eye could even be scratched. the disk feed could also not be feeding the disk in far enough for the eye to read it. i would definitly suggest calling customer service and/or bringing the ps3 to an A+ certified technition to "diagnose" your problem.
