    Watched Dark Night last night, next day put Little Big Planet in and it would not read the disc. Tried COD, same problem. Not other changes or modifications have been made, I use a cooling fan to help prevent overheating.

Why wont my PS3 play any blueray games or movies?


Try using a lens cleaning disc. If that doesn't help your PS3's disc drive is probably dying. Time to call Sony support...

My system plays cd's dvd's but when i put a ps3 game in the disc wont show therefor im not allowed to play any games by disc


The Playstation 3 is a wonderful video game console, however, with heavy usage, the laser does eventually burn out. The first signs of the laser starting to burn out is that your game will start freezing during game play. Eventually the game will stop reading altogether (even though movies sometimes still work). Eventually movies will stop working and the whole laser will eventually die.

The following website sells PS3 lasers and also performs repairs:

PS3 wont play game but will play DVD's


The laser in the dvd drive requires different strengths to read different discs. If its reading movies and not games then the laser is starting to go bad in it. You can either replace the laser if your tech save to open up the ps3 and opening up the dvd drive, or you can just get another drive to put in there. Either one you can get from Ebay fairly cheap.

MY PS3 will play movies but will not play games?


the blu ray player uses a magnified lens ( likely used in ps3 games too) which is not used when playing ps2 or regular dvds...why they work, any spec or suface wear to the lens will cause the system not to read the discs) , a cleaning disc wont work as the ps3 wont recognize what it is and not play it... only solution i found was to send in for service , which costs @ 150 bucks! I hope this helps

try setting the console back to factory settings, i had the oposite problem, would play games but not movies. will it play blu-ray movies or regular? if it doesnt play blu-rays, your disc reader may have gone bad.

Ps3 was playing movies i had burned to disk now it wont


The best way to play burned movies is to copy them onto a memory stick or external hard drive then copy them onto the ps3 i use this method and find the movies play in much higher quality than dvd-r or+r or whatever discs you use

PS3 Wont Play Game OR Blue Ray Disc


reset to the factory default then load ver 2.60(most current). If the system still does not read any discs the laser is bad.
