Ps3 plays DVDs, PS and ps2 games but will not load any ps3 games what can I do to fix this?


This is the 2nd most common problem with PS3's. This isn't a bad problem. Your laser/lens will need to be replaced. Do you see the time clock in the top right corner going around and around? If so, you are just having laser/lens problems. If you do not see the time icon spinning when you insert a disc, your PS3's Blu Ray drive controller board has gone bad and you will need to send it to Sony and not a

3rd party technician. Certain problems are only repairable by Sony. Good luck.

Ps3 not reading disc..Please help


Do you see the little clock like icon in the top right corner of the screen when you first insert a disc the loading disc icon? if so then it could either just be the drive itself or a software issue in which case you can try a few things before replaceing the drive.

First just reset to factory default settings under system settings.

P.S. i assume its not reading any kind of disc if it isnt reading anything also double check to make sure the disc you are using are still good and not just really dirty or scratched. GIve us more info and what disc your trying to check so we can further help you out.

PS3 stopped loading discs


Cleaning the laser on the PS3 rarely, if ever helps.

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

You could replace the laser or the entire Bluray drive.

I buy my parts at http://parts.consolerepairguy.com - the laser are about $75 each and Bluray drives are about $95.

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

PS3 wont read any games, dvds or cds


I have the same problem. My PS3 stopped reading any bluray discs. The spinning circle in the top right corner will come on for a few seconds when a disc is inserted, but then nothing. I found a work-around to get it to read discs though. You have to have a bluray disc in the drive (game or movie) and start a downloaded game or Playstation Home. Once the game or Home loads, hit the PS button on the controller. The crossbar menu will pull up and you will notice the disc icon will (magically) pop up. Click the quit game icon. Once you are out of the downloaded game or Home the disc icon will still be there. You can then load the game or disc. The icon will remain there until you eject the disc, so you will have to repeat this every time you want to load a game. Although this is a workaround to prevent Sony from gouging you for $150+, this is still not a fix. A fix would be for Sony to admit they have a money making firmware problem and fix it. This fix will only work if you don't have an actual hardware failure (which I apparently don't). I think a class action lawsuit is in order for everyone that has this problem and especially for those who have shelled out the money to fix something that is firmware related. I'm sure Sony will only fix the firmware to make this workaround not work anymore so as not to lose their little cash flow scheme.

My ps3 refuse sometime to load my ps3 discs.


I have the same problem, it's error 80010514.  An error occurred during start up operation.  That's what you would see on your screen if the disc would even get read.  Your ps3 is screwed.  Call 1-800-345-sony and talk to them.  They will tell you that you need to send it in and if your 1 year warranty is up you have to pay $150.  I'm waiting for them to send the coffin to send my ps3 back in
