The last couple of blue rays I have tried to play freeze up on me and tells me it can't read the disc. I just bought a cooling fan thinking it overheated and that doesn't work. Please help.

If your ps3 is in a closed area its more likely to get all super heated up try that and even try putting it up on its side sometimes they read better like that. If all else fails sony will fix it for free you just gotta get it to them

It's something about the Burlesque dvd. I have the same problem with mine when I try and play it on my Sony blue-ray player. It's the only disc I have that it won't play. Disc is a DVD Video disc but it will no't play in the Sony player. It plays fine on other dvd players and my computer, but not on the Sony.

Chronicles of Narnia. Lion,witch,wardrobe blu-ray won't play


Updated firmware last night (for the Bd370) and the main movie disc for Chronicles of Narnia: Lion,witch,wardrobe worked (after previously stalling). However, the bonus disc still doesn't work when I play it (just a blank screen). I traded the Blue-ray DVD from where I bought it for another one, and it made no difference. However, both Narnia discs played okay in the store on a Sharp blue-ray DVD/Tv combo.

I've had my playstation 3 for 2 years now n it been good to me but its starting to act out its been take care of blown out in the vents lens cleaned with proper cleaning disc. But it stills freeze after...


Try attachin the seperate cooling fan to the unit, or place the PS3 by an airconditioning vent to see if its a cooling problem, it is what it sounds like you are describing. I bought one of the fan units because mine is in an enclosed space without good air flow. If this helps, please give me a fixya rating.

Screen freezes playing Blue Ray discs only.


I answer this question like ten times a day so don't feel bad.

The blu-ray laser in your PS3 is a three part laser (cd / dvd / blu-ray). They last only 1-3 years with average use. It's a Sony defect.

Check out my common PS3 problem and repair guide for tips and suggestions for your problem.

PS3 Freezes with all blu-ray type discs.


You are Partially right.
Ps3 actually work with 2 different diode laser inside.one is Blue and one is red and both working on 2 separate circuit but with the same coil.i do believe the blue diode is dead or defective and that`s why you are able to read dvd(regular one) but no blu ray dvd or ps3 games.Try to clean your lens or replace your laser and you will resolve your problem

CyberHome DVR 1500


The 1500 needs to have a cooling fan installed and possibly the power supply repaired if it has been damaged from overheating to make it work reliably. It's rare but the DVD drive sometimes breaks or wears out. You can test it on a PC with instructins on my website here: www.drx9000repair.netfirms.com/
