My playstation 3 Will not load games dvd or music

If your PS3 is not loading games, DVDs, or Music CDs, your blu-ray drive is probably dead. Replace the drive and you should be back to normal. These drives are known to quit working, well, it is a common problem. If your PS3 is new, and still within the warranty period, contact Sony for Repair:

Playstation 3 can play dvds and music but the games dont load

Take a can of air and blow some into the dvd drive to make sure dust isn't on the laser.

If you still can't get games to load then the laser is bad and you would have to either replace the laser or the drive itself.

I have a playstation 3 and every game crashes or the playstation wont even pick it up at all the strange thing is it picks up and plays dvds no problem at all.

the bluray laser consists of two laser diodes one is for bluray and one is for regular games and movies... you bluray diode is dead or dieing which is why nothing bluray will work and dvds will... ill bet if you put a ps1 game in it would work too. sony will fix it for $150 or you can find plenty of craigs list fix it guys that can do it cheaper...but be careful of who does it.

None of my games, blu-ray dvds not loading into my playstation 3, but music cd's and video's work, how do i fix this problem

You need a new laser. But you can try to clean first with cotton swab and alcohol. More than likley laser diode is burnt out.

Got the same problem!!

Doesn't sound like a hardware problem if it just plays movies. Seems to be a sofware problem. I dont know how to flash a ps3 but it might help if you tried flashing the drive.

Playstation 3

Very odd that it will play Bluray DVDs but not games. It could be an issue with the harddrive since many games store important information the harddrive and then read it off of there. I suppose the issue could be cropping up because the PS3 cannot access that information on your harddrive thus causing it to fail to play those titles.

What you could try is backing up all the information you have on your harddrive and then formatting it etc. This should clear any corruption. To test if it is indeed any corrupted data then you can test a newly formatted harddrive and see if that allows you to play games just fine. If you have a spare 2.5" SATA HDD lying around, then go ahead and use that as your test drive (keep in mind it will have to be formatted by the PS3 etc).

Hope this helps.

Ps3 Will Not Play Blu Ray's

Most likely to be the Blu Ray laser. Either broken or not fitted correctly
