It rarely actually helps to clean the laser for the PS3. It needs a newlaser because the old one is "burnt out". It's a really common problemwith them.

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.

Wont play games, ps3, but plays movies and music disks


you need to purchase a lazer disc cleaner it looks and works just like a normal dvd disc but it has brushes on it that when put through the player brushes the dust of the laser lens this needs to be done on a regular bases to keep your lazer working to its optimum level and hense fixing your problem.

Wont play games but plays cds and dvds


Most multi readers and writers have separate potentiometers for CD/DVD/BLURAY Disc reading, not really sure about the ps3s drive but may be true for ps3 drives, if you are a techy person a little hard core pot tweaking wont hurt..else let your game console hacker/modder take a look, google ps3 potentiometer tweaking and see what comes up

Ps3 plays videos but not games


Before doing anything else, you should run a lens cleaning disk for dvds through ps3.

Also, im willing to bet it will play ps2 games, since they run on a different format then ps3 ...

If you can read ps2 games, then you dont need to replace the drive unit. If after running the lens cleaner, you still cant play ps3, or ps2 games..

Then you may need to replace the drive unit

Wont play ps3 games plays everything else such as dvds ps2 games and music


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

My sons ps3 will play games fine, but just started where it wouldnt play 1 move reg type not blue ray. then it wouldn play a couple of movies... playing some but not others, now wont play movies, but will...


depending which ps3 you have.
If you have the dual laser model one of the lasers could be damaged or require cleaning.
so the bluray side would work fine, whilst the reg side for reading dvds and cds could be damaged.
it might be worth buying a cd lens cleaner with the brushes and fluid and running it a few times in the ps3 this could work but you might be looking at the laser being replaced.
Hope this helps

Wont read game disks,but will play dvds


This can be caused by a dirty laser in the drive. try cleaning the laser with a q-tip and rubbing alcohol. If this does not fix the problem you will need to get the laser replaced. If it is still under warranty contact Sony with this site: https://service1.us.playstation.com/rma.htm?_flowExecutionKey=_c71000C59-AA41-E39E-0F5C-E9201DBE7B2B_kA7F58291-2AE5-F8BD-E0D2-C63AAC401CB1
