Ok your laser is bad. You need to replace it. Your laser has a blu ray diode which lights up blue and reads ps3 games and blu ray games. Then it has a red diode which plays ps2 games dvds cds ps1 games. Your blu ray diode is burned up. You will have to replace the laser its pretty simple.

Wont read games and only some blu rays but will play dvds and cds and ps2 games


The blu-ray laser is a 3 part laser (cd dvd and blu-ray) the blu-ray portion has failed. The only way to fix it is to swap the laser out with a working one.
It's not hard to do, there are 1000 tutorials on youtube.

I am trying to copy a ps3 game to my computer,but the dvd drive in my computer wont read the disc.Any ideas


The playstation 3 game format is in Blu-ray... but also a special format of Blu-ray to keep people from making illegal copies of the disc. Also the disc is formatted in a way that a PC will not recognize the disc unless the drive has been modified illegally. A standard DVD drive will not recognize a Blu-Ray disc.

My ps3 wont play games


Try to set the ps3 back to its factory settings,
FIRST MAKE A BACKUP OF YOUR SAVED GAMES AND OTHER IMPORTANT STUFF.
By resetting, it's going back to its default settings, do a harddrive format after that, use quick format becouse if you do a full format
it will a whole day depending upon your the size of your harddrive.
Before you do this make a backup to a memory stick of your important files.

Make also sure that none of the discs are scratched and smudged with finger prints.

Also hold the eject button for about 10sec,
this wil do the blu-ray drive test and clean the drive.

If after this this problem still is existing, please
contact Sony.

Succes.

My ps3 wont play blu ray movies or games but cds and dvds work fine


The Blu Ray Diode fried when you shut the power switch on in the back. The PS3 uses 2 different lasers to read disks. One for standard dvd's and cd's and one for Blu Ray. The only way to fix your PS3 is to replace the Blue Ray Diode or laser lens. I would recommend paying the $150 bucks to have sony replace unless you know something about Diodes and lasers.
If you hold down the eject button for 10 seconds it will reset your laser and then you should be able to shut the power down in back safetly.
Formatting and or resetting the hard drive won't do a thing if your diode is fried.
I found a work-around to get it to read discs though. You have to have a bluray disc in the drive (game or movie) and start a downloaded game or Playstation Home. Once the game or Home loads, hit the PS button on the controller. The crossbar menu will pull up and you will notice the disc icon will (magically) pop up. Click the quit game icon. Once you are out of the downloaded game or Home the disc icon will still be there. You can then load the game or disc. The icon will remain there until you eject the disc, so you will have to repeat this every time you want to load a game.

Check What Resolution You Have Saved On the PS3 Maybe When It goes Blu-Ray Its To High Res For The Standard TV..
if you felt i have spent my time to help you... a very helpful rating is appreciated for answering ur query...

Ps3 not reading discs!


If you keep on getting this problem you will need to send it in to get it fixed, or you can actually readjust the laser from home.
To do this you can use a good repair guide.

60gb ps3 wont play ps3 games


The issue is the laser (actually has different diodes for blu ray, ps2 format and regular DVD.
Seems like in your case the only one that is burnt is the blu ray.
Send it back to Sony for repairs or if you do not have warranty purchase a replacement lens and install it yourself.
