    hi there, thanks for your help, all this happened after i installed version 2.70 so i backed up my ps3 and done the restore even waited for the 2.76 update then tried again,eventually restoring from my back up but nothing worked.

    is it worthwhile buying a full drive replacement rather than just the laser, as i can get a new drive for £120 and the laser is around £80

    i have already opened up the ps3 but dont fancy opening up the drive to be honest unless im sure its reasonably easy swap

You need to replace the laser.

BUT before you try doing this you should try:

updating the PS3 firmware to the latest version 2.76

Restoring the PS3 to Factory via the System Settings menu.

If that doesn't work you need the KES-400A laser.

SOURCE: ho una playstation 3, dopo

Da tua PS molto probabilmente puo essere un errore di lettore bluray. Il lettore e fatto da due lente, una che legge il bluray, altra- il dvd. Comunque, si deve da cambiare tutta la sistema di lente, perche nn si cambia una lente aparte. Da solito costa 120 euro lavoro compreso.

How do I reprogram my ps3 player to play blueray discs


your ps3 is a bluray player, there is no reprograming to do.

on the XMB (Cross Media Bar) once you insert a bluray or dvd movie, the icon on the video tab should change to that of the film

My ps3 plays games but will not play blu ray movie


You can try clear your movie data from the discs you\'ve played (according to Fox that\'s sometimes the culprit when a disc won\'t even load): restart your PS3 and go to the video menu and scroll up to the BluRay Data section. Go into it and check that it has saved some info for your movies. Now deleted all the data in this folder except the shared data crap, and hopefully your movies start perfectly!!



If that fails try the following:

In the XMB(menus) go to Settings ---> BD/DVD Settings ---> BD 1080p 24 Hz Output (HDMI). Turn that off. This has also been known to work.

Playstation 3 (PS3) Console: it want play no disc at all...


Hi,

This is a very common problem with the PS3 and is caused by a problem with the laser on the Bluray drive which is malfunctioning and can no longer read the game disk properly.

The PS3 uses a dual laser system. This consists of either a dual refractor type lens or two entirely seperate lenses depending on which pickup is fitted to your particular system. One laser is for reading ordinary DVD disks and PS2 disks and the other for Bluray and PS3 games.

The symptoms you describe are quite typical of a failure of one or both of these lasers.

For more information on how to resolve the problem please have a look at this FixYa Tip on the subject.

My ps3 will play regular dvd discs but no games whats wrong?


It's quite likely due to a weak Blu Ray laser. The DVD and BluRay are 2 different lasers so it could still be able to read and play DVD/CD but not the BluRay games.

My ps3 turns on but doesnt play any disc


It might not be set to auto-run. Instead, you'll need to use the XMB to select the disc which will appear under "Games" if it's a game or "Video" if it's a DVD or BluRay

When disc inserted says disc error on screen


HI,
Try a laser cleaning disk, you may have debris on the laser head itself.
Also try different disk formats, such as Games-Music-DVD And bluray.
Find out if it,s reading anything At All.
