Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console

PS3 will not read blu ray or ps3 games

I have had the ps3 for not even a year and it was working fine for the first 4 months until one i came home and it would not read anything. I restored everything on the system and i updated the system via internet. I still try to see if it will work once in a while but nothing happens. Im guessing it might be the laser. Can anyone help me?

    I have the same problem but mine will read regular DVDs (haven't tried Blu Ray).  Does it read normal DVDs?

    Why would it still read DVDs if the lens is dirty or cracked?

My ps3 wont read any disk compatible with the ps3


My PS3 stopped reading my PS3 games last month, but it was still able to read DVDs. I looked it up online and learned that it usually happens when you smoke a lot around your PS3 while it is running and a film builds up on your blu-ray lens. I followed this YouTube video and had it playing my games again fine. Hope this helps.

My ps3 wont play blu ray movies or games but cds and dvds work fine


The Blu Ray Diode fried when you shut the power switch on in the back. The PS3 uses 2 different lasers to read disks. One for standard dvd's and cd's and one for Blu Ray. The only way to fix your PS3 is to replace the Blue Ray Diode or laser lens. I would recommend paying the $150 bucks to have sony replace unless you know something about Diodes and lasers.
If you hold down the eject button for 10 seconds it will reset your laser and then you should be able to shut the power down in back safetly.
Formatting and or resetting the hard drive won't do a thing if your diode is fried.
I found a work-around to get it to read discs though. You have to have a bluray disc in the drive (game or movie) and start a downloaded game or Playstation Home. Once the game or Home loads, hit the PS button on the controller. The crossbar menu will pull up and you will notice the disc icon will (magically) pop up. Click the quit game icon. Once you are out of the downloaded game or Home the disc icon will still be there. You can then load the game or disc. The icon will remain there until you eject the disc, so you will have to repeat this every time you want to load a game.

Check What Resolution You Have Saved On the PS3 Maybe When It goes Blu-Ray Its To High Res For The Standard TV..

Reads Blu-Rays and PS3 games but won't read DVD's or CD's?!?!


DVD portion of your blu-ray drive went out. It's a three part laser (cd / dvd/ blu-ray).

The ONLY way you're gonna be able to fix it is by replacing the blu-ray laser or by getting your machine serviced by Sony.

You can try a few of my tips from my guide here:

80 g ps3 will only read the ps2 games


your blu-ray laser has failed. it has three parts, blu-ray, dvd, and cd. They all use different components so when one fails the others still work. Your laser needs to be replaced. I offer that service for $130. I believe sony does it for 140. good luck.

PS3 Freezes with all blu-ray type discs.


You are Partially right.
Ps3 actually work with 2 different diode laser inside.one is Blue and one is red and both working on 2 separate circuit but with the same coil.i do believe the blue diode is dead or defective and that`s why you are able to read dvd(regular one) but no blu ray dvd or ps3 games.Try to clean your lens or replace your laser and you will resolve your problem
