Hmm. May be because the disc is scratched? Not sure what it would be otherwise, if other games work just fine.

SOURCE: My ps3 controller can't turn

Have you tried hitting the reset button on the controller? While it's plugged in via USB, get something small and hit the reset button on the back. (Right next to the front and center screw)

SOURCE: Hi. I've had my ps3

Have you tried to use the control, attached to the console with the USB cable?
If that works, it might be that the internal battery is not holding charges anymore.

SOURCE: What should I do if my PS3 slim makes noises when

Hello,

If your system will not take a disc, then you most likely have a faulty disc loader. I would recommend contacting Sony for repairs.

If your PS3 is not reading games you will need to repair it.
You can readjust the laser yourself and it is not that difficult!
All you need is a good PS3 disc reading fix.

My ps3 plays games fine and up until recently DVD's also, now it recognises the DVD's but when I go to play it, the screen goes blank and I have to turn off my station in order to start it up...


Over time, the reading laser in most consumer electronics can begin to slip out of alignment. This could cause the issue you are seeing. Firstly, insure that this issue occurs with all DVDs and not merely a few. This will allow you to be sure the issue is with your PS3 and not a scratched or poorly encoded disc.

If it does indeed occur with all DVDs, you may wish to try connecting the PS3 with a different video cable (i,e. switch from HDMI to RCA or vice versa) to insure it's not a copy protection glitch.

There are also several options in the Video Playback section of the PS3's Settings menu that can cause odd effects when playing discs. Insure that all upscalling is disabled, and that the proper video output format is selected. Experiment with the options and try again.

Lastly, if all of this fails, you may need to return to PS3 to Sony for repair. Some sites will tell you that running the PS3 upside down can cause discs to play properly, but I do not recommend attempting this, since the PS3's unique shape makes it especially susceptible to bumps which could cause further damage.

My ps3 turns on and off ok, plays movies off the hard drive and will play ps3 games but has suddenly stopped playing movies ( dvd & blu ray ) it recognises the disc and goes to play it but the screen...


That is actually a poor conclusion. There are three different lasers, one for blu-ray, one DVD and one for CD games all in one holder inside. It certainly CAN be the laser. The description id the DVD/Blu-ray part is having focus problems. Contact Sony for a service center that can install a new drive (It needs to be calibrated on install)

Wont play ps3 games


try restoring your ps3. My ps3 wouldn't read disc, but since I restored it it's now reading discs. Go to system settings on you're home screen. Then go to restore ps3 system & then go to full restore. It will take 3 & 1/2 hours but it could fix you're problem.

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 60 GB PS3 wont run PS2 games


Actually only 60GB PS3s supports PS2 games. But It requires particular firmware. In first instance try updating your system, then dissable the disc autoload function, insert PS2 game, and look at the game section if your soft will recognise it. If yes just try to play

Good luck
