You can try cleaning the laser lens with a cd / dvd lens cleaner cd.

This usually doesn't work, your problem is 98% of the time caused by a Sony defect in the blu-ray drive itself.

The drive will gradually get worse and worse.

If your system is under warranty then by all means get it repaired by Sony for free otherwise you're looking to pay $150 for Sony to repair their own mistake.

You can reach them @ 1-800-345-SONY

They'll probably suggest another System Restore, Firmware update and a 100 other solutions that won't work because it's hardware related.

Sorry for the bad news.

My ps3 wont play dvd's blue rays or games


I am afraid to say but it sounds like your blu ray laser has become faulty. Unfortunately this is a very common problem for the PS3 and there is not much that can be done about it. New lasers can be bought but they are difficult to fix. You could buy a new drive from somewhere like ebay at a cost of around £60. They are much easier to fit than the lasers themselves but you must make sure you keep the circuit board on your blu ray drive and swap it to the replacement drive as this is paired to the motherboard and will not work if it is not with the original motherboard.

Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa

Wont play dvd after changing different blue rays


The blue ray drives are system specific. You won't be ablt to just trade oout the drives, you need to keep the logic board from your old drive and put it on the new drive. They all have a code that matches the motherboard and dvd drive logic board.

PS3 80g only plays DVDs and PS2 games .... help


The reason why DVDS still work and the blu-rays don't is because it's a three part laser. dvd / cd / blu-ray.

The blu-ray portion almost always goes out first.

Wont play dvd blue rays or games


Hi There

I reciently had a simular issue.If you higlight the "Game" headding from the main page and in the little preview box you can see the Game you just need to reset the HDMI setting's. as HDMI carries sound and picture it looks like the game is not reading/ loading. If you can not see the game it may be your Blue ray lense. I hope this Helps.

PS3 wont load or play games, Just a blank screen.....


Try playing a Demo game, if you dont have any download it from playstation network. The point is just to force the sytem to play games and if you notice, movies and games are listed under a different folder in the icon's list, so playing a demo game will force the system to play the game and you should be able to play your games fine after that,. Thing is that a game's info might've got stuck in freeze mode when the system was shut off unproperly while a game disk was still inside, that's all. Good luck, dont wanna see any PS3 comrades suffering the unspeakable horridness of not been able to play games. Be strong my friend.
