Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console

1 Answer

PS3 won't play games, but plays dvds.

Our ps3 won't play games, but it DOES play normal dvds. We don't have blu-ray diskd to try it with. Last game played, we think, was Star Wars Force Unleashed. There is something at the start of the game that it does and it says not to touch buttons and stuff. We think our 5 year old may have done something at this time. Is there anyway to reset anything.

You might want to buy a cleaning disk, I'm assuming that the child had got something on the game and it was loaded and now the lens is dirty. Try that first.

Hi, i think where you buy the CDs from Tesco, are not OK,am sure they are the original version of that particular game (star wars).
You can try another game store and get that particular star wars cd and install to be sure is not the lens of the game that is weak to play the game or the star wars cd is bad.


Have a nice day.

If it won't play blu rays either it'll mean your blu ray laser is gone (inside the ps3 there is one for blu rays and one for dvds cds etc)

PS3 80g only plays DVDs and PS2 games .... help


The reason why DVDS still work and the blu-rays don't is because it's a three part laser. dvd / cd / blu-ray.

The blu-ray portion almost always goes out first.
