Your laser might have a little dust on it just take some rubbing alchohol and a Q-tip and wipe it off

SOURCE: playstation 3 keeps crashing

two problems. 1) not reading games or movies is due to a bad laser. It needs to be replaced depending on the model it will take a kes-400aaa(60,80gb and some 40gb) or kes-410a all newer ps3's use this laser. 2) Crashing online can be due to the system over heating. Make sure the system is horizontal never stand them up verticle this causes serious cooling issues. Also these units do get filled with dust and animal hair which cloags the vents. I have noticed that the ps3 runs much hotter when a wireless internet connection.

SOURCE: my playstation 3 will not read any of my games

I know the feeling, i just been through the same issue after i updated my ps3 to latest update (3.01).

sadly i didnt have any warrenty left so i had to replace the laser unit myself.

So if you still have warrenty left have it send into sony's service.

if no warrenty left, then you can replace the laser unit like i did, and you should be fine again.

if your not up for the task to replace it yourself then im sure theres a workshop near you that do these kinds of replacements/repairs.

SOURCE: Playstation 3 will not play games or read disc.

Hello,

I will advice you clean the lens of your ps3 player, cleaning the lens of the ps3 player will make the ps3 player read the disc, if the problem is not solve after cleaning the lens, it means, you will need to replace the lens on your ps3, the lens might be weak that it can no longer read any disc or play any game. the two options above should fix the problem of your ps3.

Take care.

Playstation 3 will read sony 2 games and standard dvds no problem but when I put a ps 3 game in it doesn't want to readl. If I keep putting it back in it sometimes reads but not usually.


This means that the system is encountering a serious error. The laser that reads PS2 and DVD media formats is different to that of the blu-ray laser. If the system was unable to detect the blu-ray media it means that it was faulty and you have to contact Sony supporting your location to have it fixed.

Playstation 3 only reads playstation 2 games


this could be a problem with your blueray lens, the question you have given isnt really specific but, if it can play (ps2 games, cds or dvds) but not (blueray films or ps3 games) then it will be your blueray lens and will cost around £120 to repair from sony unless it is under warranty hope this helps..

Playstation 3 wont read some cds or play downloaded demos.


I'm also having this problem as well, it has to do with the OS and it is corrupted. It seems like the "Game mode" has been corrupted preventing us from playing games on the hard drive or reading games.
