The blue-ray inside your ps3 could be dead. I suggest try playing a DVD-Movie. If this doesn't work than it is dead. To replace it you would either need to call Sony or open the ps3 (This will void your warranty), locate the blue-ray, and find out the model and look in ebay to replace it.
your laser is fried...you have to call sony if your still under waranty and they will fix it free if not you will have to take to a local pc shop or gamestop and tell them you need a new blue ray laser...they sell the blueray lasers on ebay just buy one and get it installed
If your system doesn't recognize blue ray games or blue ray dvds but
still plays normal dvds and music cds your lens is dirty. I had this
problem and my factory and store warranty are up. I decided to take the
machine apart and see what I could do.
If you look online
there are several videos how to take the machine apart. I opened the
machine up, took out the blue ray drive and opened up the drive. Once
you remove the cover from the blue ray drive, take some rubbing alcohol
and a Q-tip and clean the lens. I actually used my t-shirt to wipe it
and blew on the lens and it did the trick. Before you assemble
everything, plug the drive in and pop in a game to see if it works (or
you will have to remove all the screws again.) This should solve your
problem. If your drive doesn't recognize any media, your laser might be
you tear into it and figure out how everything works you'll realize it's
not very complicated. Otherwise you'll end up spending about 150 bucks
for Sony to do the same thing.
Then the laser or Blu-ray part of the laser in ur systemm is broken. There is a way to fix it but u have to open ur system and buy a new laser. but i do not think u should open ur system unless u have experince with gaming systems.
your blue ray reader is shot it happened to my brother you can send it in or buy an new one its about the same price though and it also takes forever for them to fix it so you can just buy a new ps3 and take the hard drive outta your old one and put it in your new one and if you cant most gamestop or rock 30 games will do that really cheap
The problem is QuickPlay. Some discs work, but those that didn't, played just fine on my PS3. I had to buy Cyberlink PowerDVD 9 Ultra (10 Ultra also plays Blu Ray), and now, they all play on my HP dv4 laptop. Updates won't matter. Don't use QuickPlay, it's very "fical". Hope this saves you time & frustration. It's not you, it's not your Blu Ray drive, or drivers, it's simply the software/program (QuickPlay) that is the problem.
Normally ps1-ps2-ps3 has Red laser beam lens system. So it cannot read Blue ray disks. its not possible until you change it lens system. there are some commericially available Blue laser lens system. Buy one and fix it with authorised service personnel. all the best
