The blue ray lazer, witch playstation just recently upgraded is not working properly. This lazer still will read non blue ray discs but not blue ray. This happened to me and a cleaner will only work for awile if any. It sucks but you should go back to the store you bought it from and get a new one and hope its not a lemon.

Will PS3 games play on PS2? Thank you


most ps3's unfortunately arent backwards compatible, however the 60gb consoles were made to be so. otherwise they can have chips put in them by people while being semi-legal is cheap and works well. so either have the 60gb console, or get a shark chip from your local supplier.

My ps3 stopped playing ps2 games


Hi, it sounds like your laser may be dirty or need replaced. First try to run a laser lens cleaner through it. If it won't read the cleaner, then try to blow out the DVD drive with some canned air or with an air compressor. If that dosen't help then your laser is probably burned out and needs replaced. This is a very common problem with the PS2 and PS3 systems. Remember that a PS3 has 2 lasers in it so it might still read Blu-ray discs and not anything else, but the red laser for the DVD,CD,PS1&2 games might be burned out.

Responds to ps2 games but not ps3 games


The PS3 has a DVD ps1/ps2 (red lazer) and Blue Ray (blue lazer) reader built in, seems like your blueray is kaput.

My PS3 now will not play PS3 games but still plays PS2 games


You're blu-ray drive has partially died. It's a three part laser (cd, dvd, blu-ray). The most important part of yours has died that's why you can still play dvd and PS2 games because they use the dvd laser and not the blu-ray.

My ps3 wont read ps3 games it only reads some ps1 games and some ps2 games.


This is the number one problem PS3 owners encounter. It's a Sony defect. The blu-ray drive is a three part laser ( cd / dvd / blu-ray). The blu-ray portion always goes out. That's why you're still able to play a few of your DVD PS1 and PS2 games.

The blu-ray portion of your drive has failed.

It's a Sony defect. Drives only last 1-3 years.

The reason the dvd and PS2 games play still is the laser is three part ( cd / dvd / blu-ray) the other portions of the laser are still working, just not the most important one :(

That's the number one problem that I see with the PS3. It's a Sony defect.

Upgrade PS2


well 2 things, 1 HD i don't think works on a PS2, but it does on a PS3 with a HDMI lead, also, playing copied games, watching copied DVD's and listening to copied CD's is illegal unless you have the originals of those discs, in which case use the originals or get ur ps2 chipped in a Computer fair (NOT RECOMMENDED)
