Why My Ps3 Keeps Ejecting BD?


This is a bad drive. I'd replace it immediately before trying anymore disks lest it damage the disks. Usually this occurs when there is a read error. It is also possible there is a disk stuck in the drive, jammed inside, the sensors, sensing the second disk automatically ejects the one you put in. Either way remove the drive and replace it with a PS3 replacement drive. (Note a way to test if it's a bad bluray lense is to stick a DVD in the drive. If it accepts the DVD and plays, then it can only read the DVDs and not the blu ray disks. If this is the case you've blown the blu ray laser, it still needs to be replaced.) If all else fails take it to a tech place and have them diagnose the problem.

Can watch downloaded movies, but can't play games or downloaded demos. when the game is inserted, it goes to a black screen and does nothing else


you have a serious problem there. have you had your ps3 worked on by anyone? did they happen to swap out the control board of your ps3 with another one? the problem you are having is a result of the nand chip not matching up with *********** board. from my experience what i have seen is this. sometimes the chips on your control board just go bad and other times a scenario follows -- a person has a problem with the disk not loading or what not so they try cleaning it. and if that didn't work they replace the dvd drive. and still if that didn't work they replace the control board. and once they do that they get the same problem as what you have -- you can download, surf the web, the psn, send messages with friends, etc... but they can't play games off of the disk or the downloaded demo off of the hard drive or go on playstation home. the problem has to do with the nand chip. this chip is located on your control board that is connected to your dvd drive mechanism housing. what most people don't realize is that this nand chip is married to *********** board and without it *********** board is useless and vice versa. this nand chip also hold the firmware of your ps3. unless you know what you are doing i highly advise you to send it off to a professional because it is very technical fix.

if it is still under the 1yr warranty from sony send it off to them so they can fix it for free.

if not you can send it off to one of the local repair shops. this is one of the sites i come across a lot
http://www.gophermods.com/index.php?l=product_detail&p=7

either way you are looking at about $100 - $150 fix. you could try looking up ic chip replace or nand chip replace on youtube for some of those peple claim to have fixed the issue them selves. but its easy to fry your nand chip in which case you'll have to replace the whole mother board along with control board and that'll cost you just as much as sending it off to get it fixed.

Ps3 not playing any disks could it be the laser?


Yes it needs a new laser because the old one is "burnt out"

You could replace the laser or the entire Bluray drive.

I buy my parts at http://parts.consolerepairguy.com - the lasers areabout $75 each and Bluray drives are about $100. (thos are Canadianprices, ships to the US though)

I run a repair business and that place has best prices aside from Hong Kong which I don't trust.

How do i clean my laser in my ps3 drive?


You can try using a disc cleaning kit, but that rarely makes a difference for the PS3.

It probably needs a new laser because the old one is "burnt out". It's areally common problem with them.

You could replace the laser or the entire Bluray drive.

Blue ray drive


Well there are two types of PS3 Bluray drives. If they are the same type (they will look quite a bit different if they aren't) then yes you can.

However, you need to swap the circuit boards on the Bluray drives located on the bottom or else your PS3 will not play games, just movies.

This is because your Bluray drive and your PS3 are "paired" but swapping the circuit boards makes it think it using the same drive.

Good luck!
