My 60gb ps3 can play regular dvds and ps2 games but not any blue ray related games or movies. The blue ray movies or games will either play for a little then freeze not read the disc at all or give me an...


Okay, this is a REALLY common problem. It's more likely than not that dust is on your lens. Best bet is to buy a Laser Eye Cleaner disc and hope that fixes the problem. If not than you will have to contact sony. If your still under warranty they will fix it for free. if the warranty has expired, then they will charge you a repair fee

Sounds like the laser diode burned out. If your under warranty send it in. If not you could buy a replacment and install it yourself.

Blue ray drive


Well there are two types of PS3 Bluray drives. If they are the same type (they will look quite a bit different if they aren't) then yes you can.

However, you need to swap the circuit boards on the Bluray drives located on the bottom or else your PS3 will not play games, just movies.

This is because your Bluray drive and your PS3 are "paired" but swapping the circuit boards makes it think it using the same drive.

Good luck!

Ps3 does not read anything blue ray?will play reg dvds?


80010514

"Sony has confirmed that 80010514 is in-fact a hardware failure - In particular the Blueray drive has failed and this system can not function like this"

In other words you PS3 is malfunctioning call Sony and arrange a replacement to be sent, Unfortunately there is no quick fix and any attempt to do so will void your warranty.

Give Sony a call they are very helpful

Hope this helped

Well that error means something is wrong with the laser. I had the same problem with another ps3 and when i replaced the laser it started working again. You can find the laser for sale on a video game repair website for about 60$. Dont try this unless you have some tecnical background though as this can be a bit tricky.

Ps3 wont read games discs


ts a problem with the latest download update. sorry to say but its a job for sony as long as its still under warranty. just phone them up explain the probs your having and they will send you a new (normally reconditioned) unit out. sony's replacement service is very good.

Ps3 will not read any disks


Two things it could be. Either corrupted disc (formatting will not help this since it's caused by moving the unit while running, damaging the disc and not corrupting files) or your BRD is malfunctioning. If it is only on games and not on movies, I would say it's the HDD, if it's on everything, then the BRD. You can get repair parts on Ebay for the BRD by punching in KES-400AAA and it takes about 15 min. for an expert and about an hour and a half for a newbie to replace. Good luck.
