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)

My PS3 playd cd dvd but not blue ray games


Problem with the laser it sounds like. If you still have the system apart with the dvd drive out, go ahead and replace the laser. You can usually find them on Ebay.

Tried to get internet


hi...please verify:
  • your dvd disc region (must be region free or 1 - for USA)
  • playing blue-ray MOVIES disc, to check a possible problem with your reader .
if the blue ray movie doesn't work, you have got a possible problem with your blue ray dvd reader .
then, take it to an assistance center for hardware repair ..

thank u
rate me!!.

Will not play dvd's or ps2 games


Ps2 Games are not for the ps3.but the older ps3's will play them. With D.V.D.s this maybe a dust issues or the brand of dvd that your burning to. PS3 has less Ram then the Xbox360 but the PS3 has faster Ram. PC Are The Way to go cheap, fast and easy to fix.

Blue rays not playing and screen says no signal


This is blue ray lens failure. this optical Assembly has two separate reading lenses. there is one designated for Cd audio and CD_ROM reading and, the other is blue ray compatible. the blue ray lens in inoperable at this point. you will need to replace this lens assembly.

Screen freezes playing Blue Ray discs only.


I answer this question like ten times a day so don't feel bad.

The blu-ray laser in your PS3 is a three part laser (cd / dvd / blu-ray). They last only 1-3 years with average use. It's a Sony defect.
