If your still in warrenty, send it to sony. I've heard that they been having some issues with some of their lens readers; so it could be the lens inside.

Ps3 slim blue ray won't play can't find settings


Will it play anything? The laser eye may need to be cleaned. Sometimes the drive will play DVDs but not games, or games and bluray movies, but not DVDs .... in that situation, the bluray laser may need to be replaced

My sons ps3 will play games fine, but just started where it wouldnt play 1 move reg type not blue ray. then it wouldn play a couple of movies... playing some but not others, now wont play movies, but will...


depending which ps3 you have.
If you have the dual laser model one of the lasers could be damaged or require cleaning.
so the bluray side would work fine, whilst the reg side for reading dvds and cds could be damaged.
it might be worth buying a cd lens cleaner with the brushes and fluid and running it a few times in the ps3 this could work but you might be looking at the laser being replaced.
Hope this helps

My ps3 is not reading discs


Hi,

This problem is common with the PS3 and typical of a failure of the bluray drive. It can sometimes be resolved by cleaning the laser pickup lens but often the lens itself needs to be replaced.

For a full breakdown on the issues involved please view this FixYa Tip.

If this helps please do leave a vote for the solution.

Hi,

Unfortunately this is a very common problem with the PS3 and is one of the first signs that the Bluray laser is failing.

For a full breakdown on the issues involved, please see this FixYa Tip.

Blue ray drive


Well there are two types of PS3 Bluray drives. If they are the same type (they will look quite a bit different if they aren't) then yes you can.

However, you need to swap the circuit boards on the Bluray drives located on the bottom or else your PS3 will not play games, just movies.

This is because your Bluray drive and your PS3 are "paired" but swapping the circuit boards makes it think it using the same drive.

Good luck!

Playstation 3 freezes


It sounds like either the BluRay drive is failing or the diode is simply dirty. Try running a CD/DVD lens cleaner and see if that fixes the problem. Make sure you are always cleaning the vents on the PS3, especially the one on the side. You could also try using a can of air to clean it.

If this doesn't work, I recommend you call and complain to Sony.

Bluray freeze


Had the same issue. Next It will start doing the same thing with your PS3 games. Your blue-ray/lazer is going out it will quit working soon. Alot of PS3 have bad lazers in them. I replaced mine works great now.

PS3 having trouble reading game discs!!!


hey guys. the problem is that the blue ray reader is some how broken and it won't work. mine kept freezing during games like after 3 mins. and it wouldnt read any more discs for that day. you need to change the blue ray reader and that costs about 175$. thats alot of money and its probably not worth it.
