It sounds like the Blu Ray Laser has died. You can try GameStop or somewhere else locally that does minor repairs cheap. If it needs to be sent out, Try www.psr1.com . They do great work for warranty & out-of-warranty consoles. good luck, bro

How to play movie


first thing you may want to check is to see if your disks play automatically. go to settings>system settings>disc auto start (its about mid way down). make sure that is marked "ON" If its not just press "X" on disc auto start and you should have option to turn it "OFF" and "ON". with that set every time you put in a disc it should auto start.
if that doesn't start automatically the title of your BD should be under VIDEO and it should be the one on the bottom. if it doesn't show up there you should check to make sure the disk is able to be read. try it with another DVD/BD if those show up and your first disk don't than you know you have a faulty disk. hope this helps

My play station doesn't recognize dvds or games I put them in and no icon comes on and it doesn't paly


The Playstation 3 is a wonderful video game console, however, with heavy usage, the laser does eventually burn out. The first signs of the laser starting to burn out is that your game will start freezing during game play. Eventually the game will stop reading altogether (even though movies sometimes still work). Eventually movies will stop working and the whole laser will eventually die.

The following website sells PS3 lasers and also performs repairs:

Nexxteck dvd driver downloads. my dvd is usb pnp rw dvd, it doesn't play movies automatically


This is not an issue with the drive. The drive is not what tells your pc to play movies automatically. Anyhow, I don't know what version of windows you are using, but if you click start-help and then type in 'auto play' it will show you how to change the settings so movies will play automatically. Also, if you don't have it already, install VLC media player.....it plays pretty much any video files.


Hope this helps!

My PS3 won't play disc's anymore. It started with just the games,not recognizing that the discs were even in the PS3. But it would still play movies. Then it stopped playing movies about a week later.


Yep sometimes this can happen slowly it is the laser on the disc that is slightly off but the good news is that it is fixable.

Just use a good guide or send it in and they will fix it for you.

My new 3.15 ps3 won't play blu-ray but will play everything else no problem. no problems to play games or to play normal dvd's. When playing a blu-ray the UNIVERSAL part at the start of the movie plays...


f the Blu-ray Disc does not support 1080p 24Hz video mode, the video output may not display properly.

If a Blu-ray Disc movie is not loading properly or is freezing on a title screen, this may be caused by the PLAYSTATION 3 attempting to download BD-Live content from congested movie studio servers. If you experience this issue, you may choose to temporarily bypass the BD-Live content until the congestion at the movie studio servers has cleared.

Go to Settings icon (Settings) > Video Settings icon (Video Settings) > [BD Internet Connection], select "Confirm". Then reload the Blu-ray movie and the PLAYSTATION 3 will prompt you if you wish to allow the disc to access BD-Live content. Choose to not access BD-Live content to see if the movie will now load.
For some reason you seem to think this is a PS3 problem. Why do you think this is a PS3 problem? If you can play PS3 games, then I will say it is not a PS3 problem, as all PS3 games are on Blu-ray, and if you were having problems playing PS3 games, then that could account for the movie not working.

Since only the movie isn't working, I am going to say you have a defective Blu-ray disc. Did you just buy this movie, or have you viewed it before using the PS3? If you have never viewed it on the PS3, then the problem lies in the disc, and you need to take it back and have it exchanged.

If you have played the disc in the PS3 before (the PS3 you are having a problem with, not a different PS3 or Blu-ray player), or you still think it is a PS3 problem, then use the "Disc Troubleshooting" support page. Normally, if a Blu-ray movie will not play, it won't play at all, and it is because the Blu-ray laser has gone out. It sounds to me that the disc is bad, but this is only going on the information you have supplied.

Here is the Disc Troubleshooting support page mentioned above:http://playstation.custhelp.com/app/answ…

**EDIT**
Sorry, I just noticed you gave a UK link. Here is the support page for the UK. You will have to do a search on the site to find the Disc Troubleshooting page for your region.http://uk.playstation.com/support/

Need disc to play copies on P S 2


The PSP mainboard needs a microchip modification to allow palying of copied games and some movie DVD formats. There is no disk that can do this. Check your local paper or at a game shop as to who in your local area can do this modification.
