Make sure you have your audio settings configured for the stereo or whatever system you are using for audio output.

My ps3 sometimes loads my games but other times it wont load them at all but it is still loading my dvds and cds


Well it sounds like your Blu ray laser is broken. Your best bet is to send it in to Sony for repairs.

My ps3 wont load any of my games but still plays my dvds


First off, have you tried playing Blu-Ray movies/games instead of DVD's?
If you have and only the DVD's work then it sounds like the "blu ray" part of the drive has died.

In the PS3 blu ray drive there is a lens for blu ray movies/games and a seperate one for dvd/cd's. Sounds like the blu ray lens one broke.
The cost for repair of this $150 dollars if not under warranty.
Now before calling sony try this.
  1. Update your firmware (if you aren't running the latest already). Yup, this overwrites some of system software that may have been corrupted.

  2. First, back up your game saves, and any music you have on your HDD. Format the PS3! Yup, again this fixes corrupted files on the HDD by forcing the PS3 to rewrite them.

  3. Buy a Blu-Ray cleaner and try it.

Sadly if these don't work, you will need to give Sony a call, and have that coffin mailed your way.

The optic lens assemblies are completely different, so to answer your question unfourtenatly no it won't work. On the good side check this site for parts, and if you don't see the one that goes in your machine I have other sites I get parts from just let me know.

My PS3 will not load games, movies or Blue Ray discs. Usually when a disk is put in, the orange light will blink for loading, but this does not happen. What do I do?


Yo!

You might not actually need to spend any money on a PS3 repair guide at all- instead you will need to purchase a new Blu Ray drive (or laser lens itself and simply replace the lens) But even before you do that try the following things:

  • Clean your game disks
  • Clean your Blu Ray drive (get one of those laser lens cleaning kits on eBay or Amazon)
If that doesn't work then I've got a free step-by-step PS3 repair guide that will show you with video and text instructions how to replace the Blu-Ray drive yourself. Its all online so you don't need to download anything either

My ps3 will not read my disc sometimes and other times it will read it but it will not work


The disc may be quote, "Corrugated", hence the laser is having a hard time following mis ~ aligned structural pattern. Try to use a CD ~ Lens Cleaner. :)

40gb ps3 unable to recognise or read any disc.


Contact sony about blu-ray drive error, first make sure that the disks are clean and are'nd containing any scratches.

If your disks are clean and are'nd containing any scratches, it's just failing hardware and Sony can repair it for you.

And if past the warrantee, you also could replace the blu-ray drive your self.

Succes.

My ps3 is not reading the disc and if it does then there is no sound please help


Hi,

You're experiencing the most common problem with the ps3.

It's a factory defect. Sony has, for the most part, addressed the issue by redesigning their blu-ray laser.

The bad news is that you'll probably have to replace your laser to get the machine back in working order.

That's pretty much it. You just need to swap the lasers. I have a blog which gives details on the entire process.

If you google: rescuetechla

you'll find it.

I'm currently updating the site so check back soon.

Best of luck!

Playstaiton 3 not reading disks


This is the number one problem with PS3's.

98% of the time the blu-ray drive needs to be replaced.

You can either repair it yourself by following guides on youtube (total cost around $60-90)

Or you can have Sony repair it for $150.

You can reach Sony @

1-800-345-SONY

Let me know if you have any other questions.
