The optical lens assembly has failed. you will need to replace this assembly asap to restore normal reading functions.

Contact Sony for this repair.

I think you should visit to Sony store in your vicinity. Or you can visit words with friends.

SOURCE: My PS3 now will not play PS3 games but still plays PS2 games

You're blu-ray drive has partially died. It's a three part laser (cd, dvd, blu-ray). The most important part of yours has died that's why you can still play dvd and PS2 games because they use the dvd laser and not the blu-ray.

PS3 will play games but not movies


Well if the regular dvd's dont work.. I would recommend you to buy Blu-Ray movies instead.. PS3 is the best known blu-ray player. buy at least one blu-ray movie and try that.

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.

Will playstation 3 play blu ray movies off usb memory stick? all other movies worked but blu ray one didn't work.


the PlayStation 3 can read just about any usb memory stick and play can movies from them, since a usb's bandwidth is significantly lower then the ps3 hard drive it's recommend to copy the movie to the ps3's hard drive.

also it matters how the movie was converted. some converted movies wont play on the ps3 no matter what codec your using to encode the movie with.

Blu ray not playing on ps3


Could be an overheating issue.. Is there enough air circulation around the unit? Is it possibly dusty? try and perform minor servicing (use a can of compressed air incase if there's dust causing problems)

Does this happen on regular dvd's ?
