Re: ps3 wont play games ,cd's or dvd's
A problem that occours with all laser products is the laser on the console has pritty much had it, once a laser stops reading discs or only part reads other discs u can safly bet that the laser is dying, there is 1 or 2 small variable pots on all lasers this is used to adjust the line and strength of the laser you can turn these but at a risk you can kill the laser altogether SO DO SO AT OWN RISK!
The variable pots will turn both ways (left and right) but getting them better or worse is just luck without equiptment to help you get it correct!
this is also a temp solution once a laser has started to show age it will die altoghter.
Your Best bet is to send it back to sony give them a call FIRST

You're blu-ray drive has partially died. It's a three part laser (cd, dvd, blu-ray). The most important part of yours has died that's why you can still play dvd and PS2 games because they use the dvd laser and not the blu-ray.
Check out my common problem and easy repair guide here:
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:
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.
the sony ps2 plays plays all games either ps3 games and othe console games .to play dvd games after inserting the disk first yu have to press three or four times the power puton contnously and the game automatically starts ok bye.
I left all ready some important help about this issue. I do believe you have a faulty laser since ps3 have 2 diode laser on the same mechanic and each one is independent for loading your disk.You can read dvd movie but no blue ray disk or Ps3 game or vice versa. If you have few minutes look on my other suggestion Fabio
