I hate to say this but you could be experiencing a hardware failure or software issue. i suggest you contact the ps3 sony support team for assistance. if you are within warranty, they will repair the unit for free but remember you will still need to pay for shipping. not a bad deal if i say so myself but this only applies if you are still under warranty. otherwise you will likely need to pay for repair or fix it yourself though i don't recommend trying to do something like that.

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.

You'll need to plug in an external USB thumbdrive (or SD card if your unit accepts one) to watch this video.
Be sure to "initialize" the thumbdrive in the settings menu after you plug it in. Restart your movie and it should load properly after 10-15 seconds.

My ps3 will play ps2 games but will not play ps3 games! why is this and how can I fix it?


This is likely to be the laser, you can test this by playing a Bluray movie. If the move dosn't play it indecates that the laser is not reading the finer Bluray disks that are PS3 games. If this is the case the laser needs to be replaced, if you are compedent you could watch a tutorial on youtube and repair it yourself. Lasers can be bought from Ebay but you need to open your PS3 to see which one you need. GOOD LUCK..

Ps3 wont read dvd or bluray discs


If you are facing problems of freezing and non-readable disc you should first try lens cleaning, the best option would be to give it for repairs to Sony if your product is under warranty

PS3 froze while playing a BD, then it would not rcognize anything


Hi there,
Most PS3 systems end up doing this due to an over heating of the laser lens. Let me explain: The laser lens in the PS3 is made to read mainly Blue Ray games. The movies need to be read faster than the game discs which causes it to work harder thus the problem arising.
Sometimes, your lucky enough for this to only be a dirty lens problem due to rental movies which are most of the time, if not always, dirty.
Have you tried a lens cleaner kit?
This is the CD-ROM with a small brush on it to clean your laser lens head.
This problem has happened to me in the past and this solved the problem.
It is a common problem for any lens reading console.
Regards,

Try using a cleaner disc to clean the lens assembly. If this dose not produce results, replace the entire optical lens assembly.

Contact Sony for this repair.

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.
