Playstation 3 not playing games but will play blu ray discs

Make sure that your firmware is updated correctly. Also make sure the games are the correct region for the unit you're playing on. You may have an incorrect region setup on the PS3. PS3 games are region locked, either being PAL or NTSC. If the PS3 is set to read PAL (by being set to a region that is PAL, like the UK, Europe, and Japan) it will not read or play an NTSC disc.

Misconfigured or corrupted firmware installations can also cause this problem. Furthermore, pirated games will not play, because they do not have the appropriate security key on the disc.

You can try testing this by creating a new profile on the PS3 and trying to play the games. If you can play them with the new profile, then there is a corruption with the old profile. If you can't play them in the new profile, then it could be the firmware.

Lastly you may have a blown drive. Most PS3 games are dual layer blu ray discs capable of storing large amounts of data. The blu ray drive in the PS3 uses a sequenced dual laser to read the game. If one of the laser emitters has blown, it won't read the game correctly. However, since it doesn't use both emitters to read blu ray movie disks or dvds they'll still play correctly.

I have a xbox and about 20 games so far i have tried 5 and get cant read disc message any help please grandson is expecting to play this thing after school

hit up a dollar store for a lens cleaner, hopefully your lens is dirty, only solution fast enough where it may work before he gets home, also with disc in, flip upside down and restart system, if there's no loud sudden noises it may just work (seen it done). if these don't work your repairs need a more drastic approach, also try vacuuming vent holes. good luck

My grandson's X Box Elite is damaging game discs. What can be causing this problem?

Do not move the xbox 360 while the disc is inside and playing. Try not to stand the unit vertically just do it horizontally.

Playstation 3 will not play games or read disc, what can i do?


I will advice you clean the lens of your ps3 player, cleaning the lens of the ps3 player will make the ps3 player read the disc, if the problem is not solve after cleaning the lens, it means, you will need to replace the lens on your ps3, the lens might be weak that it can no longer read any disc or play any game. the two options above should fix the problem of your ps3.

Take care.

The console reads ALL discs as DVD's including game disks

Basically our question is not clear ..
It seems that you cannot play the games or when you insert the discs it reads them as DVD's

Game discs and consoles are made for specific countries and regions. If you try to play a game disc that is made for a specific country or region on a console that is made for another country or region, the game disc does not play.
