Why wont my PS3 play any blueray games or movies?


Try using a lens cleaning disc. If that doesn't help your PS3's disc drive is probably dying. Time to call Sony support...

My ps3 will not read any ps3 disk but it will read movies whats wrong?


I would see if it reads blueray MOVIES, if not it could be a problem with the blueray reader. In that case I would see if you can locate one of those cleaning discs with a brush on it to clean the laser or contact sony to see if your console is under warranty.

Playstation will play ps2 games movies an cds but wont play my ps3 games


Hey Ron,

What happens you put a ps3 disc in the drive? Does it not register at all? Does it read BLUERAY movies because if so it should read games as well.

PS3 READING DVD'S + CD'S BUT NOT GAMES WHATS UP ?


Hello,

To start the laser reads disc's differently. A CD or DVD is just your typical disc then you have blueray which your games are burned onto a blueray disc. Your optical lens is damaged and likely unable to read blueray format.

If you have a blueray movie or can borrow one, try it and see if it still plays that will determine if that is the problem.

If so you will have to replace the optical lens,

Note: Opening your PS3 will void your warranty, so if you are still covered, it is best to send it in to Sony for repair.

Good news is it is easy to do and there are many free step by step tutorials with pictures or videos to show you how. If you must do it yourself.

Ps3 reads ps2 games and movies, but not ps1 or ps3 games


your blueray lens
the ps3 has 2 different lenses in the disk drive 1 is blueray and the other is just a basic dvd cd lens<
your blueray lens will have burned out if your still under warranty you should be fine to call sony and request a free repair if your not under warranty it will cost around £120

hope this helps

My playstation 3 wont play any games but it plays the movies that arent blueray


Open up the PS3 and then open up the Blu-Ray Drive. Then clean the lens with rubbing alcohol or isopropyl alcohol on a q-tip. I heard that lighter fluid on a q-tip works way better than rubbing alcohol and isopropyl alcohol, so try using it on a q-tip to clean the lens. I'm not responsible for any damages to your console.

If that doesn't work then go here to get help from other people -
