Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console
It happened when I was playing Call of Duty world at war. I troed different games and DVDs but nothing has showed up. I think the Blue Ray reader inside had failed. Any help on how to solve this problem would be appreciated
If your system doesn't recognize blue ray games or blue ray dvds but
still plays normal dvds and music cds your lens is dirty. I had this
problem and my factory and store warranty are up. I decided to take the
machine apart and see what I could do.
If you look online there are several videos how to take the machine apart. I opened the machine up, took out the blue ray drive and opened up the drive. Once you remove the cover from the blue ray drive, take some rubbing alcohol and a Q-tip and clean the lens. I actually used my t-shirt to wipe it and blew on the lens and it did the trick. Before you assemble everything, plug the drive in and pop in a game to see if it works (or you will have to remove all the screws again.) This should solve your problem. If your drive doesn't recognize any media, your laser might be shot.
Once you tear into it and figure out how everything works you'll realize it's not very complicated. Otherwise you'll end up spending about 150 bucks for Sony to do the same thing.
