    Alright I imagine you're trying PS3 games which are in a blu-ray format. Does the PS3 play DVD's or CD's? Or are all discs receiving the same problem?

It sounds like you can still access the network without a paid plus membership, but you can't play multiplayer games on the network without a plus membership now.

It appears that the laser/lens will need to be replaced. It is a very common problem. You will need to find a repair tech who can solve your problem. MikesPS3repair(dot)com

Playstation3 won't play games but will play dvds


that is an internal problem that will most likely have to be fixed by an expert, it has to do with you disc drive, which isn't usually a major fix, so it shouldn't cost you much.

Ps3 plays dvd but games don't load. Games do not even register as in the cd drive.


Please check if the games you want to play are on PLAYSTATION3 format. If not then they will not be played. Otherwise when you insert the disc the games start automatically

About playstation3 cd


No unless they have it already as a language that you can play it as. Other than that, if the game is not programmed with English already in, then the best thing you can do is get a dictionary or someone who can read japanese.

The games are made for different region formats, so what works in Japan doesn't always translate (hardware-wise) that it will in the North America.
