Ok i know this is not an exact solution but from what i've heard, the reason is a corrupt file on your hard drive and you have to flash your hard drive or something, this is for xbox 360 though and it might be different. sorry i couldnt give an exact answer m8

Ps 3 wont load games cd or dvd


Hi mate

Call sony in this case as long as you do not open your console yet. before speak to them tell then that your ps3 is no longer reading discs they have been know to repair it for free.

It the laser gone most probably the KEM400aaa you can tell by the CECH**** code on the end of the serial number

If they will not repair for free it will be a cost of £99.00 or you can repair your self by replaceing the laser around £65.00

DVD play on my 60gb PS3 but games wont!


It's a Sony defect with the blu-ray lasers. They only last 1-3 years with average use. If your PS3 is less than a year old and you still have the original receipt Sony will repair the problem for free. Otherwise they're going to charge you $150 for the repair. You can reach them at: 1-800-345-SONY

Unless you have a technical background in electronics there's nothing I would suggest doing. A firmware update and or CD /DVD cleaner disk will do nothing for your problem. I've fixed more than 100 PS3's with this exact problem so I know exactly what I'm talking about.

If you're just out of warranty by a few days sometimes Sony will do a courtesy repair. It doesn't hurt to ask.
