Often times this may mean that your blu-ray lens has malfunctioned and stopped working. This happens because there are different types of lens to play the different types of disks. This is common with many gaming console systems including the PS3, PS2, and Xbox360. You have a couple of different options. First i would try to find a blu-ray cleaning disk and use it. If that didn't work i would call sony and ask them to repair it. Generally the repair costs around $150. Also you can trade these in at video game stores even if they are not working and get quite a bit off of another one.

Hope this helps!

It wont play games or movies


Laser has to be bad then if its not reading brand new games or dvds. To verify this though get a can of air and gently blow it into the drive to make sure there is no specs of dirt or dust on the laser.

Now try the games and dvds again and if its still happening then the laser needs to be replaced and you can get them fairly cheap off of Ebay.

PS3 won't play games, but plays dvds.


You might want to buy a cleaning disk, I'm assuming that the child had got something on the game and it was loaded and now the lens is dirty. Try that first.

MY japoneese ps3


The pal ps2 games and dvds will not play on a Japanese ps3 due to region coding. You can play all ps3 games and blu ray films because they do not use region coding. Some games will also play differently on a ps3, for example, Uncharted: Drakes Fortune (I highly recommend the game) will not have any blood on a Japanese ps3. The region coding feature can not be changed/modified. I would recommend returning Japanese ps3 and purchasing a European model instead if that is possible. Bon chance.
