PS3 doesn't recognize any game , DVD or Blue-ray

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.

Game not working on x box 360 did work once but now it cannot read the disc, other games work well.the game is "call of duty world at war"


call of duty has a history of being a console killer, if your xbox 360 version is older, your console engine might not be able to keep up with this kind of game, I had an xbox 360 b4 and same thing happened it plays on other games but wont play with call of duty. It also happened to my ps3, what I did was I updated my firmware version for both console. Now both consoles works with call of duty. Give it a try. Thanks

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.

Check the 24 Hz setting in the BD/Blu-ray setting area. Some televisions do not support this option. Turn it off. It will prevent blu-ray movies from playing.

My ps3 wont play blue ray discs or my games anymore


if your ps3 doesnt play ANY games or dvds, that may mean that the eye on the ps3(the thing that reads the disks and dvds) is malfunctioning, not moving efficiently enough to procces the disk, not recognizing the encrypted code on the disks, or the optical eye could even be scratched. the disk feed could also not be feeding the disk in far enough for the eye to read it. i would definitly suggest calling customer service and/or bringing the ps3 to an A+ certified technition to "diagnose" your problem.
