Wont read game disc but will read dvds sometimes freezes up during game play


This is the 2nd most common problem with PS3's. This isn't a bad problem. Your laser/lens will need to be replaced. Do you see the time clock in the top right corner going around and around? If so, you are just having laser/lens problems. If you do not see the time icon spinning when you insert a disc, your PS3's Blu Ray drive controller board has gone bad and you will need to send it to Sony and not a

3rd party technician. Certain problems are only repairable by Sony. Good luck.

you need to get a new disc drive.
dvds still work because it uses a different part of the drive for dvds

Can i transfer files from my 40gb ps3 to a 80gb ps3?


yeah you can by getting an external HDD. transfer the files from the 40GB to the external HDD and then plug it into the 80GB. and then just copy all the files from the external HDD to the 80GB PS3.

(yeah takes time but its the only solution since they don't allow the consoles to connect together.)

Ps3 games wont work on my ps3.. but plays ps2 games and dvds play...


How much free memory does your Ps3 have? Are the games used or scratched?
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
You need a certain amount of memory to play ps3 games. Scratched up games can't be read.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Did you put the disc on the right side? Lay the ps3 down and the ps3 game disc picture should be facing up.

My ps3 wont play blue ray discs or my games anymore


if your ps3 doesnt play ANY games or dvds, that may mean that the eye on the ps3(the thing that reads the disks and dvds) is malfunctioning, not moving efficiently enough to procces the disk, not recognizing the encrypted code on the disks, or the optical eye could even be scratched. the disk feed could also not be feeding the disk in far enough for the eye to read it. i would definitly suggest calling customer service and/or bringing the ps3 to an A+ certified technition to "diagnose" your problem.
