    Have you tried to watch normal movie DVD or movie Blu Ray discs? Are those working?

    In case the movie discs are working fine, try to execute the following steps;

    The PS3 has a special Recovery Menu, which you can access in the following way;:

    1. Turn off Playstation 3.
    2. Hold the power button down; the system will turn on and turn off once again.
    3. Once the System has been shutdown, re-press you finger until you hear 2 consecutive beeps
    4. When you hear the 2 beeps take finger off power button.
    5. You will be prompted to plug in your controller via USB and then hit the PS button
    6. The Recovery menu will pop up.

    The current Recovery Menu supports:
    • Restart System: Restarts the PLAYSTATION 3 System.
    • Restore Default Settings: Reset all system settings back to default.
    • Restore File System: Checks for corrupt/missing system files.
    • Rebuild Database: Rebuilds the OS for the PLAYSTATION 3.
    • Restore PS3 System: Fresh restore; Deletes everything and starts from Scratch.
    • System Update: Update the PLAYSTATION 3 System

    Select option "Rebuild Database".

    the PS3 has executed this DB rebuilding operation, the disc games will be
    visible again under the game menu and are also starting automatically when inserted
    to the PS3.

A portion of your blu-ray laser has gone out, the ONLY way you can fix it is by swapping out the blu-ray laser with a new one.

I got the 250g PS3 for my son for Christmas. Works great with Games, DVDs, etc. But, it will not play a Blue-Ray Disc. It keeps going back to (no source) after I insert it everytime! I am running an HDMI...

Well the most typical problem for something like this is that the Blu-ray software is either disabled on the Playstation console OR you need to update your Blu-ray software by allowing the Playstation to connect to an internet source

This will show you some general set-up settings to use :

This link literally in the first 30 seconds shows you how to allow your PS3 system to update the blu-ray player itself :

PS3 USA compatibility in India for running Bluray moviea and game

As long as the movies and games are the actual things and not some burnt rip-off discs you'll be fine. The movie companies do this so their stuff isn't copied illegally.

Merry Christmas!

If this has helped you, please give me a good rating!

As far as I know, you can only download games to your hard drive from the PS store. The Blu-Ray drive is read only and can not write on a disc. I hope this helps you out. Good luck to you.

Ps3 wont play games or blue ray dvds

Hello. When you put in a disc, listen for the disc to start spinning. If you do not hear that then the laser and/or the spindle have blown out. You will have to get your Blu-Ray player serviced by a pro or Sony. Sony may fix it for free. They know that the drives are failing. So call them first.
I hope this helps! Good luck to you.
