My PS3 now will not play PS3 games but still plays PS2 games

It will play PS2 games and movie dvd's but with PS3 games it loads for a very long time and then stops loading and won't play the game. The PS3 is about 1.5 years old. Any suggestions?

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.

My ps3 wont play ps3 games but it will play movies and ps2 games


If the movies are DVD (like ps2 games) It could be that the laser for your PS3 has issues-
Try using a lint-free lens cloth to clean the laser lens- if that does not work, you may need to contact Sony for an RMA to get your PS3 repaired

How can i get my ps3 to play ps2 games


thats because sony was *** and stopped making ps3's that could read ps2 discs. so in other words you cant. the said "they didnt see it was fit for it to have to play games." a load of **** i say! they were just losing money for having a blueray, dvd, and ps2 reading machine. so they decided to take out ps2 and not dvd? i dont get it cause we can rip dvd's to play as a video file, and then play it from that. sony doesnt think right i dont think, sorry. but you are out of luck

Will not play dvd's or ps2 games


Ps2 Games are not for the ps3.but the older ps3's will play them. With D.V.D.s this maybe a dust issues or the brand of dvd that your burning to. PS3 has less Ram then the Xbox360 but the PS3 has faster Ram. PC Are The Way to go cheap, fast and easy to fix.
