Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console
My Playstation 3 will play normal dvd's fine but it won't play games or blu-rays. I have no idea why. It worked a couple of hours ago just fine and I tried it several times just recently and it just wont work. Any help or helpful information would be greatly appreciated
Hi there, it sounds like your blu ray laser has become faulty. Unfortunately this is a very common problem for the PS3 and there is not much that can be done about it. New lasers can be bought but they are difficult to fix. You could buy a new drive from somewhere like ebay at a cost of around £60. They are much easier to fit than the lasers themselves but you must make sure you keep the circuit board on your blu ray drive and swap it to the replacement drive as this is paired to the motherboard and will not work if it is not with the original motherboard.
Hope this helps
