I'd start with a System Restore. Let me know if that fixes the problem before I suggest others.

My PS3will not read the games but will play the movies fine??


First you should back up any important data onto an external hard drive, or transfer your data to another PS3 via the transfer function. Both options are available through the PS3 settings tab of the XMB.

After all the data you wish to keep is safe, then reformat the PS3`s hard drive via the reformat function also found in the PS3 settings tab of the XMB.

Go to settings, system settings, reformat utility, and follow the on screen prompts.

If this is successful then restore the backed up data onto the PS3.

If this doesnt work you may want to consider a Blu-ray cleaning disc such as this:

My Ps3 will play and work fine with everything, It can play movies (dvd & Blu-Ray) and I can even download a demo from the store and play that, but it wont play and of my ps3 game discs.


Unfortunately this same issue happened to me as well, and I had to send my PS3 in for repair. But maybe what I was told to do will work for you! Here's what I was told.

You're going to want to backup everything on your PS3. The Backup Utility can be found in the System Settings Menu on the Settings Menu on the XMB menu (XMB > Settings > System Settings). More info on how to backup your information can be found on the Playstation website, found here.

Next you'll want to restore your PS3 to it's default/factory settings. It's also found in the Settings Menu on the XMB, labelled "Restore Default Settings." Just follow the on-screen instructions.

Once it's restored, see if the problem is fixed. If it is, congrats! Just use the Backup Utility to restore all of your backed up data.

If not, either try the online Knowledge Center or send in your PS3 for repair (if it's under warranty, it's free!)

Hope it all works out! If you send in your PS3 they won't send you won't get it back for almost a month...

I have disc read problems.


I do hear that the controller card on that revision of PS3 can have failure issues... right now I'm waiting on a new bluray drive assembly for a CECHE01 because of, basically, the very same problem. This eBay seller(lives on the other side of the US from me) seems to know a good bit about these issues, and even provides his phone number for tech support. Search under his store for: CECHE01

Well, this sounds more like a common problem. So if you want to keep playing, you're going to have to keep repeating that process until it's fixed. Either that, or you can contact Sony and have them check it up.

No sound from hdmi cable


Go to the Sound settings in PS3 and be sure it's listed as HDMI and not Audio Video Cables.

Output on TV may be set to surround sound system? Powerd On?
