Please try:

  • Reinstalling all your game data files
  • Reupdating your system firmware via USB Device (download the update from Playstation Website)
  • Restoring your system (don't forget to backup all your important files !!)
else, contact the support centre for possible hardware issues checking . it can be, unfortunatelly, a problem with your bd reader, and you will need to buy a new one if the system is not covered by warranty =/

My ps3 will no longer play ps3 games


If you are able to play Playstation 2 games, but not PS3 games then that means the blu ray laser has went bad. The lasers are a 2 part laser, The PS2 games take a lot less power to read than the blu ray or PS3 games, that is why you can still play PS2 games but not PS3s.
The lasers are a little bit pricy for these units, $60-$80 depending on which model laser is in your unit.
I recommend that you have a professional install the new laser in your unit because of the sensitive nature of the internal electronics.
One thing you don't want to do is damage the original blu ray drive mother board, the blu ray drive has Firmware on it that has to match the motherboard of the Ps3 unit or it will not play anything at all.
If you want me to replace the laser for you I can do that, just contact me and we can talk about it

MY PLAYSTATION3 WONT READ GAMES N I HAV ANOTHER THAT HAS THE RED RING


The Blu Ray Laser is wearing out. This is a common issue among the newer video game consoles. The laser is constantly lighting up to read the discs while you are playing your Playstation 3 whether you are playing games, Blu Ray movies, or DVD movies. Eventually the laser will burn out. As it starts to wear out, first the games or movies will freeze. After a while, it will not read Blu Ray at all. Finally it will quit reading anything. You can find lasers at the following website starting at $49.95. The same website also performs repairs of the Playstation 3 console:

Will playstation 3 play blu ray movies off usb memory stick? all other movies worked but blu ray one didn't work.


the PlayStation 3 can read just about any usb memory stick and play can movies from them, since a usb's bandwidth is significantly lower then the ps3 hard drive it's recommend to copy the movie to the ps3's hard drive.

also it matters how the movie was converted. some converted movies wont play on the ps3 no matter what codec your using to encode the movie with.
