    My ps3 will not read any games. I can still watch DVDs. It doesn't even acknowledge that I inserted the game.

How much free memory does your Ps3 have? Are the games used or scratched?
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
You need a certain amount of memory to play ps3 games. Scratched up games can't be read.

Did you put the disc on the right side? Lay the ps3 down and the ps3 game disc picture should be facing up.

SOURCE: ps3 not reading disc

the Diode in the PS3 units actually has 3 diodes built in. Looks like your blu ray one went bad the other 2 still function.
Order a replacement KEM-400 AAA and replace it (the whole laser lens mechanism with deck). If you still have warranty send it in.

SOURCE: ps3 won't play game or certain dvds

Ok go out and get a cd cleaner.
Should take care of it IF ITS DUST>
It costs 7-10$ and if it fixes your issue then you save a bunch!
If not you will need to make sure Sony's warrenty is not valid and its not if you dont have the recipet.
You can take it apart and instal a new blu ray unit or send it to sony for 150$ plus s&h.
I have blu ray parts if you need them.

PS: what size is the ps3? 20-40-60-80 gb hd?

SOURCE: My ps3 quit playing ps3 games. It would play ps2

you had a software error, when you reset the system it re installed all the software. you got lucky had one that did that i reformated the hdd and still nothing put a disc in and it would just continuosly read the disc and nothing would ever come of it. the first set of PS3's had inferier blue ray drives and they tend to crash on the hardware end. if this happens sony has a refurb program for $150 you can send yours in and get another back that is refurbed...

MY japoneese ps3


The pal ps2 games and dvds will not play on a Japanese ps3 due to region coding. You can play all ps3 games and blu ray films because they do not use region coding. Some games will also play differently on a ps3, for example, Uncharted: Drakes Fortune (I highly recommend the game) will not have any blood on a Japanese ps3. The region coding feature can not be changed/modified. I would recommend returning Japanese ps3 and purchasing a European model instead if that is possible. Bon chance.
