Probably indicates the blu-ray reader has died. Have you tried an audio cd to see if that works? Either way, try unplugging the power from the console, leave it unplugged for 60 seconds, replug it in. If after that it still does not read anything you will need to contact Sony for warranty repair.

How do I get it to work on my Ps3


Hi Damian, if you can't read any file from it it's because it's probably format as NTFS. You have to format it as FAT32 otherwise PS3 won't read anything from it.
Also, you have to create two partitions on it because PS3 won't read anything bigger than 512 GB. When you got it to fat32 go to MOVIE, PHOTO or MUSIC and hit the triangle button in order to display your files.
Regards, Peter

Tip

If your ps3 reads everything but blu-ray or won't read anything go by my steps.


Most likely you need a new eye.My ps3 wasn't reading neither.At first it was reading everything but blu-ray.Then it wasn't reading anything.Little circle in corner be spinning and everything.I cleaned my eye I used cd cleaner didn't work.My system is out of warranty so had to get it fixed on own.So i opened it got a q-tip wiped it off with alcohol switched ends.With dry tip and dried the eye off.That will help you if your ps3 reads everything but blu-ray.But all it was really doing is telling me my eye was dying.Suddenly it read nothing so I invested in a new eye.Put it in myself now she's running like a champ.Hope this help but if your system still play dvd movies and ps2 games.Your blu-ray is acting up go by my steps first.Before destroying your ps3 or buying another might be a 50 dollar problem.Compared to sony 160 to send you another used 1.You can find a blu-ray eye cheap this days on internet.

My PS3 IS NOT READING ANY DISC( GAMING OR MOVIE) THAT I LOAD. I HAVE UNPLUGED AND WENT THROUGH ALL MENU OPTIONS.


your laser has probably had it, what size ps3? alot of the 40bg ps3's died out with the laser not reading anything, it is repairable by ordering a new one from ebay not hard to do wither just open ps3 up and remove old one and gently put new one in. i have had a 40gb, a 60gb and an 80gb do that to me, the more you play the harder you strain the lense that reads them all.

My ps3 has a hard time reading ps3 games but doesnt have a problem reading anything else.


Have you tryed to play a BlueRay movie? PS3 games are stored on BlueRay so it might play DVD's and CD's, but the BlueRay's laser diode could be burning out.
