This is actually quite an easy fix and can be a few reasons why it happens, firstly it can be the sensors overheating but more than likely the tray is slightly off the lens.

You can fix it yourself quite easily using a recommended PS3 Repair Guide or you can send it in for repair.

I have a playstation 3 and every game crashes or the playstation wont even pick it up at all the strange thing is it picks up and plays dvds no problem at all.


the bluray laser consists of two laser diodes one is for bluray and one is for regular games and movies... you bluray diode is dead or dieing which is why nothing bluray will work and dvds will... ill bet if you put a ps1 game in it would work too. sony will fix it for $150 or you can find plenty of craigs list fix it guys that can do it cheaper...but be careful of who does it.

Wont read game disks,but will play dvds


This can be caused by a dirty laser in the drive. try cleaning the laser with a q-tip and rubbing alcohol. If this does not fix the problem you will need to get the laser replaced. If it is still under warranty contact Sony with this site: https://service1.us.playstation.com/rma.htm?_flowExecutionKey=_c71000C59-AA41-E39E-0F5C-E9201DBE7B2B_kA7F58291-2AE5-F8BD-E0D2-C63AAC401CB1

Clean the lens. Its possibly dirt on the len which is stopping the lasor from reading discs.

Playstation 3 wont read some cds or play downloaded demos.


I'm also having this problem as well, it has to do with the OS and it is corrupted. It seems like the "Game mode" has been corrupted preventing us from playing games on the hard drive or reading games.
