Hi, if your PS3 is reading DVD's and CD's, but NOT any type of BLUE-RAY
media.....95% sure it's a faulty laser. The Backwards compatible units
are equipped with a RED laser for DVD and CD reading. The Blue Ray
Diodes are faulty..especially in the earlier production models. This
was due to the shortage of parts during production, so SONY out sourced
from multiple producers of BR laser units.
My 80gb , 4 usb, Backwards combatibility unit started doing this. The
game froze, system became unresponsive, wouldn't show the the Disc ICON
in the XMB for PS3 games. When the games did load they would play for a
few mins then freeze, or error code 80010514 would appear.
I got the laser replaced by a reputable repairman, now the system works
without fault. It's been running for hours with no problems.
Get the lens replaced by either SONY or someone who knows what they are
doing....also give your PS3 a good dusting everyday. When the Laser
unit gets too hot the diodes malfunction and eventually fail.
WELL UNFORTUNATELY YOUR PLAYSTATION 3 IS ONLY COMPATIBLE TO PS3 GAMES UNLESS YOU HAVE THE 60G AND UP WHICH ALSO HAS THE MEMORY CARD READERS IN THE FRONT , SORRY NOT THE 40G.AS FOR YOUR MOVIE AND GAMES NOT READING IT'S A VERY COMMON PROBLEM AMONG PS3 GAMERS.WELL YOU WOULD HAVE TO CALL SONY AND PURCHASE THE REPAIR WHICH THEY WILL SEND YOU A BOX TO SHIP YOUR CONSOLE TO THEM WHICH COULD TAKE ANY WHERE BETWEEN 8 TO 18 DAYS TO RECEIVE YOUR CONSOLE BACK???? $$150$$ TO REPAIR WITHOUT WARRANTY !!! GONE COLD TURKEY FOR DAYS CAN"T TAKE IT ANYMORE!! NEED MY PS3 !!!!!! YOU CAN TRY FORMATTING YOUR CONSOLE OR A SYSTEM FORMAT ON UNDER YOUR SYSTEM CONFIGURATION OPTION. IT'S PROBRABLY YOU BLUR RAY LASER THAT'S GONE OUT. GOOD LUCK
MINE IS TWO YEARS ALSO MODERATELY USED AND IT QUIT PLAYING ANYTHING BLUE RAY..GAME DVDS...BUT NOW I CAN PLAY REGULAR DVDS AND PS2 GAMES THAT ARE NOT BLUE RAY..IM JUST TRYING TO FIGURE OUT IF THE LASER IS OUT?CAUSE YOU CAN BUY THEM OF FEE-BAY FOR ABOUT 70.00..
There is a common problem with the Blue-Ray players in the PS3. There is not anything that i know of that you can do other than have your PS3 worked on
**Warning** If you have the old 80 or 60 gig ps3 that you are able to play PS2 games on and you are trying to go through sony for repair they may just give you a new 80 gig ps3 in which you will not be able to play PS2 games on any more that feature has been taken away
