    thanks for your reply...but the games i have tried all worked prior to this problem. I've tried every game i have and that used to work before. I am completly erasing and reformatting my harddrive in my ps3. I hope that this will fix this problem. Is the laser that reads blu-ray movies different than the laser that reads ps3 games?

  • kneedraggerr Jun 19, 2009

    thanks bro, if this reformatting stuff doesn't work I'll either send the ps3 in or bash it with a bat....but i appriciate the help and time you took to answer my stupid questions..

Hello my friends, regarding on your problem you said that your PS3 is working in downloaded games and blue ray movies but the question is that thus game the latest PS3 games? Then if it is yes then the problem you've got is the PS3 games you have.  Recommendation: try to test another PS3 games aside from the current PS3 games you tried then if the test's result is not successful then maybe the compatibility of your PS3 games over your PS3 player. Its either the requirements of your PS3 gamesis not meet or the software support has the problem. Try also to reupdate your PS3 using new and latest software support for your game Support software. then if the problem continues then try to add new more memory to help the loading of your game faster and successful otherwise you have to contact a technica=ian who will chekc it personally to see and fix your problem.
Hope this advice help address your problem. If you need more assistance then just reply to this post or contact me.
Thanks

    The laser that reads the ble ray movies are the same with the laser that read your PS3 games but only then the requirements of the Game is important although it can read by the laser but the checking part of the Core Program installed by you PS3 is the one who are incharge of executing your PS3 to work. Then therefore if your softwre support has  the problem then you will not have successful execution of loading your  desire PS3 games. That is why is it important to installed all the software support and updates to ensure  the functionality of your PS3.

My ps3 iant reading games or blu ray discs how can i fix this myself?


I've been told that Blue Ray movies don't work on PS3 unless you use an HDMI cable; but I haven't tested that. Also, some Blue-ray on PS3 load as movies, some load as games depending on the content. So check the automatic play feature, see if you can select the BD from the video section. On your Xross media bar, go to videos and see if there is a blue disc (BD-rom), click X.

Also make sure that the movie is actually blue-ray. Some old HD movies are sold off on eBay, etc as Blue ray when they aren't. Check it on Blueray.com, if the movie isn't listed it may be HD only.

PS3 Wont Play Game OR Blue Ray Disc


reset to the factory default then load ver 2.60(most current). If the system still does not read any discs the laser is bad.

My ps3 will not play blue ray or my games.


the blue ray laser has two high energy beams at 450nm(bluelight) and 730nm (redlight). the highpower diode on your machine im afraid has failed (due to the extreme heat conditions in ur PS3). you need to install a new laser ..only 100 i charge or 160 from sony (150+TAX 2 week wait)
Now if you have the newer model laser KES410ACA, then you have 2 SEPARATE light sources...these tend not to fail as often
