    my ps3 doesn't play ps3 games it started with certain games now its all of my games it also plays dvds of all sorts just not blu-rays 
    my guess is the lense is dirty i also noticed that the hdd light doesnt blink as it should when the games are inserted which also indicates to me that the lense is dirty

My game BFBC2 won't load! Whenever i turn on my PS3 it works fine. When I put the game in the disk icon pops up. Normal. But when I click it my screen goes black. It's a brand new game too! I'm sick of it!...


I'm not and expert but this helped me, turn of the system and then there is a switch on the back. Turn that switch off and let it sit for about one minute. That should work.

My ps3 wont load ps3 games


Hi,

This problem is common with the PS3 and typical of a failure of the bluray drive. It can sometimes be resolved by cleaning the laser pickup lens but often the lens itself needs to be replaced.

For a full breakdown on the issues involved please view this FixYa Tip.

Thanks for using FixYa.

Ps3 will not load cd's dvd's or games. loading icon comes on but disc's dont load. when i take disc out loading icon stops but does not go away. it had the newest update.


Could be drive unit, Try unplugging unit and see if unit resets itself. Estimate cost to fix $39.99 3-4day sending unit to us with 1yr warranty
