Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console
I have a ps3 and it will not read ps3 games but will read dvds and cds
T'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 Blu Ray diode actually contains 3 diodes in it.
Looks like the blu ray one is out, the other 2 still function.
You may need to purchase a KES-400AAA replacement.

HI, the optical lens assembly is damaged. you will need to replace this vital part to restore normal reading capabilities.
The optical lens assembly incorporates both the blue ray and regular lens in the same assembly. if one lens burns out, you will have no choice but to replace the entire lens assembly unfortunately.
You can confirm by using a cleansing disc. if the cleansing doesn't restore the reading abilities to the affected lens, replace the entire optical lens assembly asap.

It sounds like the drive is failing. If it will turn on, but can't read any media then I would suggest cleaning it, checking it for warranty replacement, or exchanging it at the place you purchased it, if it is possible.
