My ps3 sometimes loads my games but other times it wont load them at all but it is still loading my dvds and cds


Well it sounds like your Blu ray laser is broken. Your best bet is to send it in to Sony for repairs.

My ps3 wont load any of my games but still plays my dvds


First off, have you tried playing Blu-Ray movies/games instead of DVD's?
If you have and only the DVD's work then it sounds like the "blu ray" part of the drive has died.

In the PS3 blu ray drive there is a lens for blu ray movies/games and a seperate one for dvd/cd's. Sounds like the blu ray lens one broke.
The cost for repair of this $150 dollars if not under warranty.
Now before calling sony try this.
  1. Update your firmware (if you aren't running the latest already). Yup, this overwrites some of system software that may have been corrupted.

  2. First, back up your game saves, and any music you have on your HDD. Format the PS3! Yup, again this fixes corrupted files on the HDD by forcing the PS3 to rewrite them.

  3. Buy a Blu-Ray cleaner and try it.

Sadly if these don't work, you will need to give Sony a call, and have that coffin mailed your way.

I have audio but no video. used mainly for blu-ray playback but games have been played on the system.


Have you recently plugged the ps3 into another TV?

Try resetting the ps3 back to default.

1. Hold down the power button the ps3 system to turn it on and keep holding the button after the ps3 comes on
2. You should then hear another beep and the ps3 will reset both the audio and the video to default settings.

Hope this helps :)

    The system is not reading any games


    Hello there,
    The reason your system is not reading any game is because the lens is not working, to fix this, follow the steps below;
    1. Unplug the power cable, video cable and controllers and remove any discs from the disc drive
    2. Remove the rubber foot on the left side of the PS3, unscrew the security screw and slide off the top lid.
    3. Unscrew all nine screws under the lid and lift off this section to reveal the inside. Be sure to unplug the cable that connects to this lid before completely removing it.
    4. Remove the gray box. This is the Blu-ray drive. Disconnect the power supply and the cable connecting it to the motherboard
    5. Remove the five screws on the outside of the Blu-ray drive to remove the metal shell.
    6. Remove the next set of screws on the black plastic cover to gain access to the inside of the Blu-ray drive. Disconnect the red and black cable to pull the two plastic halves apart.
    7. Remove the cables and brackets and screws holding the laser in place and slide off the laser module. Be sure to check the model number on the laser to make sure you purchase the right replacement model.
    8. Replace with new laser module, reverse your steps and reassemble the PS3.

    Updated System, system won't recognize game or blu ray


    I have a solution.

    You go to the settings on your PS3 a 'Restore PS3 System'. Once clicked, choose the 'Full Format' This DOES work. I had the same problem with my PS3 last week, (10th June) so i phoned up Sony Support and they told me to do this.

    I thought that i would have to replace my Blu-Ray drive but never had to because of this! Theres a few downsides to this....1. its takes approx 28hours to complete and 2. it will delete everything from your hard drive: music, vids, demos, game saves the lot. But if you have an external hard drive then you can back up everything onto there, then do the restore. Once you have done it you can then put all your backed up data back on.

    Plus you can still get all your purchased downloads from PS store back and it also keeps all your online activity i.e your level on COD4-5 an fifa ultimate team is still there ect. Other option which will have the same affect but wont take so long is to format the PS3 again found in the settings menu on the PS3. I would suggest to Restore PS3 System before spending money on replacing the drive when you might not need to.

    Note: Again, this advice was given to me by the Sony Support line when i had the same problem on 10th June 09. I Phoned the PS3 line to confirm that i needed the Blu-Ray drive replacing, which to my suprise i didnt!

    Blu-ray playback freeze


    1st DO NOT EXPOSE THE BLU-RAY FOR ANY REASON - You run the risk of blindness and radiation exposure!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Please advise what FirmWare Version you are currently running on. You can find this under;
    Settings>System Settings>System Information.

    Once I have this info I will provide you with the best fix if needed but It is probably down to out of date drivers. There have been a number of changes to the blurays drivers recently and if these havent been updated then this will most likely be your problem. To solve this all you need to do is take your system online and download the newest FirmWare update. - There are people who NEVER use the system online for different reasons. Since you brought the system BluRay has gone through 4 upgrades. Any BluRays you buy now wll likely be incompatible for playback with the drivers you have on your system.

    If you need any further advice on getting online with thew PS3 please post it as a new issue and I will help you - but the PS3 talks you through it to be honest

    Ps3 blu ray lens cleaning


    What are you saying you screw up your $600 dollar console. OMFG i mean common man. Jeez luis. Well since you have your ps3 already open your ps3 system you should open again and extract cod4 out of your blue ray drive before you hook it up and all that. So take the game out connect the blue ray drive back put the system together and power it up. See if that works.
