Question about Sony Blu-ray Remote for PlayStation 3

Open Question

PS3 Blu-Ray drive freeze

Mine has frozen both with DVDs and Blu-Rays. I haven't tried DVDs recently but when I did before they lasted only a couple mins. I've had my Blu-Rays lasting anywhere from 10 to 30 minutes.

I have found no solution in sight and generally refuse to send it in to Sony for 150-200 dollars (a tall tall order financially). Any ideas or do I really have to send this thing to Sony?

SOURCE: PS3 laser Problem

It sounds like you bought a defective laser or it is the chip on your "sister board". There is a chip on the circuit board thats on the bottom of the Blu-Ray drive and it has a silver rectangle on it. Some say that that chip is going bad on some machines. I have repaird 60+ PS3's this year and I haven't had this happen to me yet though. I would suggest trying another laser, then if that doesn't work try a "sister board" from the same model of PS3. I'm still not possitive if that is a possible solution though. The "sister board" is supposedly keyed to only work with the mother board it came with. Well, I hope this helps. Good luck!!

SOURCE: ps3 blu ray lens cleaning

What are you saying you screw up your $600 dollar console. OMFG i mean common man. Jeez luis. Well since you have your ps3 already open your ps3 system you should open again and extract cod4 out of your blue ray drive before you hook it up and all that. So take the game out connect the blue ray drive back put the system together and power it up. See if that works.

SOURCE: Console unable to play

I had this exact problem (drive stopped reading discs, then firmware update stopped at 71% with error 8002F14E). It is not a software / firmware issue, the problem is with your Blu-ray drive. Either one of the cables connecting it to the motherboard is damaged, or perhaps there is a problem with the laser or diode. In my case, the clip attachingthe drive's ribbon cable to the motherboard had come undone. Luckily, I managed to fix it myself, and the firmware update finished smoothly after that.

If you're not comfortable with opening the console and checking out the drive yourself, you'll have to send it in for repairs (since, as I said, it is generally a hardware problem, not something you can fix by redownloading the firmware or whatever).

SOURCE: my ps3 wont load any games

Check all of your settings and make sure everything is configured properly. If you made any changes to you system configuration just before this issue happened just change back to previous config and see what happens.
If everything is correct, then, unfortunately cleaning the lens is not going to help very much. This is similar to the "disc read error" on the boxy ps2. The best thing for you to do is to call sony and tell them that your blu-ray player is not working you can only read regular dvds. It has happened to a few people that I know and they were still under warranty and it was replaced. If this happens to be a common issue then maybe Sony will still replace it outside of warranty. Never know, but it is always worth a shot.

The 405 nm 10 mw blue violet laser gets whats called thermal kinks in the
optical medium .There hard to weed out in batches of KGD (Knowen Good Dies) . the
problem will arise as the laser diode cycles 400-600 times which puts it right in your-living room
when it starts failing. sound like the Laser.

Error message when my Blue Rays reads dvds


It's a software issue. you need to ring the manufacturer to get files and instructions on how to upgrade your machine so it can play the newer blu ray movies. Quite a common problem.

My ps3 will play ps3 games but not dvds. it loads the dvd then turns black. Any suggestions?


The ps3 blu-ray laser is a 3 part system (cd, dvd, and blu-ray) More than likely the dvd portion of the laser is damaged.

I'd recommend using the ps3 to play games / blu-rays until the laser completely fails before replacing.

Here's a website with some tips and advice.

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.

Wont load any disk


Like said above, It needs a new laser. It's a really common problem.

I buy mine at http://parts.consolerepairguy.com they run about $75 each.

I run a repair business and that place has best prices aside from Hong Kong which I don't trust.

Hi my playstation 3 has stopped playing blu rays,


Hi , it sounds like your blu ray laser has become faulty. Unfortunately this is a very common problem for the PS3 and there is not much that can be done about it. New lasers can be bought but they are difficult to fix. You could buy a new drive from somewhere like ebay at a cost of around £60. They are much easier to fit than the lasers themselves but you must make sure you keep the circuit board on your blu ray drive and swap it to the replacement drive as this is paired to the motherboard and will not work if it is not with the original motherboard.

Hope this helps

My ps3 will not play any ps3 games at all


If it won't play blu rays either it'll mean your blu ray laser is gone (inside the ps3 there is one for blu rays and one for dvds cds etc)

Talk to Sony about it

PS3 80g only plays DVDs and PS2 games .... help


The reason why DVDS still work and the blu-rays don't is because it's a three part laser. dvd / cd / blu-ray.

The blu-ray portion almost always goes out first.

Blu-ray playback freeze


1st DO NOT EXPOSE THE BLU-RAY FOR ANY REASON - You run the risk of blindness and radiation exposure!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Please advise what FirmWare Version you are currently running on. You can find this under;
Settings>System Settings>System Information.

Once I have this info I will provide you with the best fix if needed but It is probably down to out of date drivers. There have been a number of changes to the blurays drivers recently and if these havent been updated then this will most likely be your problem. To solve this all you need to do is take your system online and download the newest FirmWare update. - There are people who NEVER use the system online for different reasons. Since you brought the system BluRay has gone through 4 upgrades. Any BluRays you buy now wll likely be incompatible for playback with the drivers you have on your system.

If you need any further advice on getting online with thew PS3 please post it as a new issue and I will help you - but the PS3 talks you through it to be honest
