Doesnt play games

My playstation 3 is two years old and suddenly stopped reading disks. I used a dvd dr to clean the blu ray lens and still nothing. I can get a game to load temporarily but then will freeze after 30 seconds or so.

You can purchase a lens cleaning disk but it's a long shot. It's more likely that you have a bad video chip in your PS3.

Will not play the games


First make sure the DVD is not scratched or dirty. Get a cleaning kit and use it to clean the laser off inside your PS3. If it won't work after you clean the CD/DVD then your Blu-Ray Diode has burned out (a very common problem with the PS3). The PlayStation 3 uses two different lasers to read a disc. One of the lasers inside is used for standard DVD's and CD's and the other one is used strictly for playing Blu-Ray. The only way to fix your PS3 at this point is to replace that Blue Ray laser lens. If you do not have electronic repair knowledge I would recommend paying the $150 to have Sony replace it. Your PS3 is under warranty for one year from the purchase date.

My PS3 will play dvd's and I am still able to use Netflix and get on the Playstation Network but it will no longer read games or blu ray discs.....


ok try doing a format and if that doesnt work then go get a new laser because games and blu ray take more power to work so the lens cant give that much anymore

Ps3 will not read games.. the blue and green light are both on.. its not making any weird noise.. its seems as if its spinning and reading but the game icon wont pop up to indicate there is a game in...


This is unfortunately due to the Blu Ray lens developing a fault within the disk drive or becoming dirty. Usually it will still play DVD's but not Blu Ray discs or games. You could try a laser lens cleaning disc but 9 times out of 10 this doesnt usually work. I am guessing this is the new PS3 slim model you have trouble with, which I am pretty sure are still under a year old from launch date. In which case I would give Sony a ring as this should still be under warranty. They should offer you a replacement free of charge.

Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa

Ps 3 screwed up!


Nothing you can do.

The dvd laser portion of the blu-ray drive went out.

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.
