Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console

Will not allow us to play the disc installed in the ps3 console

The PS3 comes on but will not let us pick the game we have installed. We tried turning the console off and removing the disc. We let it sit overnight and tried it again. No luck. Please give us some advice.    Thanks

Unless this is a game you "installed" from the online store, then all other PS3 games require the disc in to play.

With the disc in the system, go to the Game heading in the menu. You should see a disc icon with the name of your game...now click it. If you do not see the image, you will probably see text that says "disc read error". In this case you need to either clean the disc, or replace the disc with a non-scratched or non-defective one.

If your PS3 does this with multiple non-defective discs, then your blu-ray drive may be defective.

My ps3 will not read my ps2 discs


there was only one model of ps3 made to play ps2 games but it was too expensive for them to keep making it so only a very select few people have the older ps3 that allows ps2 play. my guess is your ps3 is a newer model.

PS3 won't read discs of any kind at all. We have an old PS3 (husband says the biggest one) that was the first kind to come out. Recently we have found that the PS3 no longer reads any of our games or DVDs....


the laser has gone bad in the dvd drive. You can either replace the laser if you know how to get into the dvd drive or just replace the dvd drive itself. You can find them on Ebay at a decent price.

Wont play ps3 games


try restoring your ps3. My ps3 wouldn't read disc, but since I restored it it's now reading discs. Go to system settings on you're home screen. Then go to restore ps3 system & then go to full restore. It will take 3 & 1/2 hours but it could fix you're problem.

PS3 will not eject the disc nor acknowledge the game being in the console


NEVER EVER TURN YOUR SYSTEM OF WHEN YOU ARE PLAYING ONLINE AND THE GAME FREEZES!!!...

Just try to wait for 30 - 50 sec.
If that does not work than EJECT THE DISC AND THAN TURN OF THE SYSTEM, It has nothing to do with your PS3, Check your connection status and reset all your internet settings BUT NOT THE SYSTEM ITSELF.

If this still doesnt work than there's something wrong with the disc.
