    My husband has the same problem. I bought him a PS3 last christmas and just the other day it would not load the games. It plays dvds, but that is it, and we are one month outside of the warranty period. I am really disappointed as this is an expensive piece of equipment, and the games are also expensive so you are almost falsed to get another one.

It's a Sony defect with the blu-ray lasers. They only last 1-3 years with average use. If your PS3 is less than a year old and you still have the original receipt Sony will repair the problem for free. Otherwise they're going to charge you $150 for the repair. You can reach them at: 1-800-345-SONY

Unless you have a technical background in electronics there's nothing I would suggest doing. A firmware update and or CD /DVD cleaner disk will do nothing for your problem. I've fixed more than 100 PS3's with this exact problem so I know exactly what I'm talking about.


If you're just out of warranty by a few days sometimes Sony will do a courtesy repair. It doesn't hurt to ask.

My playstation wont play any discs at all


It's a Sony defect. Drives only last 1-3 years, sometimes less, with average use.

That's the number one problem that I see with the PS3.

Check out my blog for help fixing the problem.

My ps3 wont play ps2 games. it worked then i left and came back and it didnt work anymore. ps3 games still play but not ps2.


It sounds like the dvd lens has packed up, but not the blu ray lens. Are the ps2 games your trying to load all clean? Do DVD's work? If not it sounds like your lens. So phone sony its a job for them, if you from the uk, and ps3 is under 1 year old it'll be free of charge, other countries are different.
