Similar things have happened on PS2s, the laser that reads DVD discs might have come unaligned. I would suggest taking it back if it's still under warranty.

You can attempt to fix it, but it's better left up to a professional

Error message when my Blue Rays reads dvds


It's a software issue. you need to ring the manufacturer to get files and instructions on how to upgrade your machine so it can play the newer blu ray movies. Quite a common problem.

Since a week ago, the player doen't want to read bluray discs. It reads the dvds but not the bluray discs.


The DVDs use red light, and the blue rays use blue light, 2 systems. Have you tried a cleaning disc?

I have sylvnia n8631slx blueray player it won't play my blue rays but it will ply reg dvds


It could be a dirty optical pickup or a bad one.

Blue rays are more particular about the pickup being dirty or even bad and will do exactly what you say here.

If cleaning does not resolve it will be cheaper to replace than repair.

My ps3 will not read my games , but it will read dvd's


Blu-rays utilise a blue laser within the drive and DVDs use a red laser.
Sounds like the blu-ray/games reading blue laser has died and it'll need replacing.

Standard DVDSs are read by a red laser while blue ray DVDs are read by a blue laser (hence the name). The blue laser diode is likely to be faulty and therefore standard dvds work but blue ray dvds do not. This is not an easily obtainable or replaceable part.
