When I insert a DVD to play it is choppy, it freezes then unfreezes every half second or so. The audio isn't affected at all, just the video. Games or Blu rays will not even play, they say invalid disc...


40GB and 60GB 1st Gen PS3 consoles are notorious for faults with the Blu-ray lens. With your warranty more than likely expired you will not get a replacement. With no support offered for older versions either I suggest buying a newer 'slimline' version. Bigger hard drive, support offered and more reliable.

My ps3 constantly freezes. i cant play a game no longer than 10 to 20 mins. the crossbar works fine, downloaded demo's work, and playing dvd's all work. the only time it will freeze is when playing a game....


Yup its your laser. You need to try wiping it off wih qtip and rubbing alcohol if that doesnt work just replace the laser. Ps3 lasers are the most expensive though due to blu ray.

Purchased 60GB backward compatable PS3 ( used). Will not play games, PS2 or PS3, they freeze up.


There are 3 main causes and solutions:

Software Issue (Restore the PS3 to factory settings via Sytem, Settings, Restore PS3

Dirty blu-ray lens ( take the PS3 apart and clean the laser eye carefully with a DRY q-tip.

Faulty / Failing blu-ray drive ( check and secure all of the cables to the blu-ray drive)

If the issue persists then more than likely you'll need to swap the blu-ray laser out with a new one.

There are a ton of guides on ps3hax.net and youtube.

Hope this info helps!

PS3 blu-ray laser issue


Your laser is dirty and needs to be cleaned.
DON NOT ATTEMPT THIS IF YOUR CONSOLE IS TILL UNDER WARRANTY!
Otherwise, there are many videos that show you how to disassemble/reassemble..try this http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bNW1IK0Gyt4&feature=related
There is only 1 Torx screw on the entire system, the rest are all phillips drive. All you will need is Q-tips and rubbing alcohol. When cleaning the actual lens DO NOT press very hard and try using a rotating/twisting with the tip of the Q-tip.
NOTE: KES-410 (dual eye) lasers can sometimes have a bad Bluray and still play CD and DVD movies.

Corrupt files


If you can get to it without it freezing use the System Restore function under:

System->Settings>Restore PS3

If you can't get to it because of freezing you should put your hard drive into another PS3. It will see it as a new drive and prompt you to format it. Afterwards put it back into your PS3 and it will do the same thing again.

It doesn't matter which PS3 yours or the one you put your hard drive into, they're all the same as far as the process goes.
