Blow some air into the drive to be sure its not a spec of dust or dirt that is affecting the laser. If after that its still doesn't rad blu-ray or any video game discs then the laser is bad and would need to be replaced.

You can get them fairly cheap off off Ebay and some of them will even give you instructions on how to do it.

My ps3 slim won't play games and blue ray disk but I can still play eve movies on it, please help want to try an fix if before nhl 12 hits the stores.


Hi, It sounds like there's an error with the laser that reads blu ray media as PS3 games and blu ray movies are both stored on blu ray disks which is read by a different type of laser then a dvd is read by. There's nothing you could do to fix that on your own, the only fix I've heard of is sending it in to Sony.

Playstation 3 stop reading the disk. the system wont **** in the disk it doesnt spin or anything i had to open the blue ray player to get the game out


Could try cleaning the laser in the drive with a drive cleaning kit you can buy from most electronic stores. Have you checked the game disk to see if it has scratches or fingerprints on it. Try to clean the disk as well. If still have problem try playing another disk to see if that one works

My ps2 wont play blue disc i have a action replay for nfsu2 for ps2 and my ps2 wont read it can i fix it?


Blue colored disks are the hardest for your ps2 to read, there is an adjustment to try to improve this, but it requires opening your console and digging into the DVD drive. Most people don't bother with it unless it won't play other disks. Here is a link to instructions:

PS3 doesn't recognize Games or Blue-Ray Movies


Laser needs to be replaced. 95% of the time.

You can try: updating firmware
restoring system, and cleaning the laser lens with a q-tip

It almost never works, but you can try.

Normally ps1-ps2-ps3 has Red laser beam lens system. So it cannot read Blue ray disks. its not possible until you change it lens system. there are some commericially available Blue laser lens system. Buy one and fix it with authorised service personnel. all the best
