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.

Check out my common PS3 problem and repair guide for tips and suggestions for your problem.

SOURCE: Slimline PS2 only plays PS1 Games and not PS2

Clean the LAsers Lens with Q-tip lightly dampened with Glass cleaner, then dry the lens. Try it see if that gets it going again.

If not your lasers lens and supporting frame is probably melting down. You will need a new laser.
Click on "repair directory" at the bottom of this screen. Then click on "Video Game consoles" Pick a good repair shop.

SOURCE: MY PS3 WONT READ PS3 DISKS, BUT HAS NO PROBLEM READING PS2 & PS1 DISKS

Question for all who have has the disc read error problem...

Does your PS3 boot into the menu? If so, see if you can download a demo game and play that. If you can play a downloaded demo game, it generally means that your all your PS3 hardware, except the laser lens, is functioning properly. My friend's PS3 had the same problem. It would not play any discs he puts in, but will play a downloaded demo. His PS3 is no longer under Sony's warranty, so I fixed it by replacing the laser lens for him. You can buy a replacement lens on Ebay. However, if your PS3 is still under Sony's warranty, i suggest sending it back to them for repairs.

SOURCE: ps3

It may not be the diode itself, but the drive's circuitry. I just worked a similar problem with a tested working laser and gt the same problem.

I have not been able to narrow it farther due to my lack of another tested working drive. If someone else can confrm. That could also be the problem.

SOURCE: My PS3 ont read PS3 games but ps1 and ps2 are compatible.

just fold a buisness car in half the long way. don't fold it hard. slide it in the disk slot about an inch to open up the rubber flaps. then just blow hard.
TIP: try not to spit in there . first clean the dust off the ps3..... dont want to take the chance of putting more dust in there. canned air will work too just make sure you spray air not liquid .

If your diode is not burned out yet then this should fix your problem.
1. Plug in controller
2. Have system in standby mode (red light)
3. Hold down power button for a full cycle (will turn on and back off again)
4. Hold power button again will hear 2 single beeps then a double beep.
5. As soon as you hear the double beep immediately remove your finger from the power button.
6. Hit the PS button on controller when it tells you to
7. Go to only option 3 (restore)
8. warning: select any other option and you can wipe out everything only use option 3
9. Follow on screen prompts

your blueray lens
the ps3 has 2 different lenses in the disk drive 1 is blueray and the other is just a basic dvd cd lens<
your blueray lens will have burned out if your still under warranty you should be fine to call sony and request a free repair if your not under warranty it will cost around £120

hope this helps

How do i turn on my ps3 rock candy wireless controller


After installing batteries in the controller and inserting the usb stick into your PS3, hold down the home button (the round middle most button with a house on it) for a few seconds until the light on the controller illuminates. This is your indicator your controller is paired with your PS3 and should be assignable and usable at this point.

Pogo wont load games


This should get you started on trouble shooting the issue.

This is a link to POGO support, read all the information and follow the instructions. Most the time this will fix issues with POGO.

I have had cases that Internet Exporer would not work no matter what we tried. In those cases I have downloaded and used Firefox (link for downloading below).

Well your disc is officially garbage because it's scratched beyond repair. Don't bother trying to fix your game disc. Do what I did. Go to sellitbroken.com and sell your game to them. They will give you good money for it.
