Sounds like the blue-ray laser is dead. If it's still under warranty, call Sony for a repair. If you got the extended warranty from the store you bought it from, take it back there for a replacement.

Hi,

Unfortunately this is a very common problem with the PS3 and is one of the first signs that the Bluray laser is failing.

Our playstation 3 won't read games but will play regular DVD's and CD's


I have the same problem. My games freeze after 5 minutes. Same with blue rays but dvds play fine. I have reformatted the hard drive and formatted the file system. Nothing has worked. Hearing through multiple sources the blue ray laser is going out or the latest firmware update could be causing this. Hard to know for sure ... major disappoint. I have the 80 gig. 2 years old just starting doing this three days ago. Any other suggestions?

The PS3 will not recognize games or movies. You load it and it will not show in up in the menu of options. It powers and shows the normal menu but does not recognize games or dvds regular or blue ray.

Blue rays not playing and screen says no signal


This is blue ray lens failure. this optical Assembly has two separate reading lenses. there is one designated for Cd audio and CD_ROM reading and, the other is blue ray compatible. the blue ray lens in inoperable at this point. you will need to replace this lens assembly.
