It will not play my games or movies. play demo games


Chances are the blue ray eye is burnt out very common problem. When the disc enters the eye blinks to see there is a disc. Then the motor starts spinning the disc. The eye then figures out if it is a blue ray or a regular disc. If the eye is dirty or burnt out the disc will not spin. Try cleaning the eye first. You might have to tear apart to do if regular laser cleaner disc doesnt work. I have the 40 gig version and it is a paper weight for now. There are replacement eyes and motors for them for around $70. Only recommend this if you are familiar with electronics and are comfortable doing this. You will have to tear apart the system down to the blue ray drive. then tear apart the blue ray drive. There are plenty of you tube videos on how to do this. No you can not just change the whole blue ray drive because the drive is paired with that mother board.

My ps3 dont read blue rayand ps3 game why ...what can i do


Chances are the blue ray eye has burnt out or is dirty. Clean it first. disasseble might be required to clean the eye if the dvd laser cleaners dont work. If under warranty I highly recommend you send in if not sending in will cost around $150. Stupid I know. If you are confident in your abilities, you can do all this yourself. There are plenty of you tube videos on how to clean the eyes on playstations( watch a few of them before you disassemble. Further damage can accure if you dont take your time and arent careful.) Replacement eyes and motors are $40-$70 depending on your model. The blue ray drive itself cannot be change for they are paired with the mother board. There are people out there that provide repair services for gaming consoles as well. I have the 40 gig version and mine died on x-mas. Hope this is helpful.

How do you clean a blue ray eye on a ps3


Here is a great video showing you how to clean the lens.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nSYYmYXgVl0
Here is some more info if the youtube video isn't getting it done:

So your shiney black pearl stopped reading discs huh? Now you are wondering if you can fix it because A)You are out of warranty and don't wanna pay almost 200 bucks to have it fixed or B) You are under warranty but don't wanna be without your PS3 for almost a month or longer .... Maybe you casn fix it on your own, if the problem is simple enough.


Sometimes the PS3 won't read discs simply because the lens is dirty, to find out if thats the case insert a game or blu-ray disc ... take careful note of the disc's 'label' as you put it in ... once it doesn't read after 10-15 seconds eject it ... if the disc's label hasn't moved your blu-ray drive's 'motor' is broken. Best bet is to send back to Sony and pay em. Or take the PS3 apart and try to replace the whole blu-ray drive.


If you remove the disc and notice it has moved your lens is probably dirty. This you 'can' fix yourself. First give the PS3 a GOOD cleaning. Vacuum it, blast it with a can of compressed air, vacuum again. Try disc.


Didn't work? Try a lens cleaner kit.


Didn't work? Time to get your hands dirty ... open the PS3 up (at your own risk) and clean the laser manually with pure alcohol and a q-tip. (video tutorials are on youtube.com)


Disc read errors are our main problem. It isn't some full blown epidemic but IS becoming worse by the day. My reasoning for this problem is simple: The PS3 is a dust MAGNET. I'm betting 90% of the disc read errors are cause by dust and dirt and pet hair getting in the machine and making the lens dirty or causing actual failure of the drive motor itself.


I love the PS3 and wish it didn't fail for anyone, especially this month with great titles almost here, but it happens. Happened to me on April 1st and I found out my blu-ray drive motor failed. A dirty lens I woulda fixed on my own. We really need a good blu-ray cleaner kit to come on the market in all major retail stores.

I cant play a blue ray disc on my ps3


Unfortunately 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 you out

Okay, this is a REALLY common problem. It's more likely than not that dust is on your lens. Best bet is to buy a Laser Eye Cleaner disc and hope that fixes the problem. If not than you will have to contact sony. If your still under warranty they will fix it for free. if the warranty has expired, then they will charge you a repair fee

I HAVE REPLACED THE BLUY RAY LASER AND SYSTEM STILL DOES NOT READ DISK


Did you desolder the board on the new laser? There are two contact points that you need to remove the solder from for it to work. This is a anti static feature put on all new lasers.
