Certainlyit's a problem with your blu-ray reader and, if it's not covered bywarranty, unfortunatelly you will need to buy a new one (you can find cheap ones in eBay =])
Please, try the following:

  • 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 !!)
if this doesn't work ,contactSony support centre for possible hardware issues checking.

Will not play crazy heart blu ray movie


Hi there,

If your PS3 is able to play video games and other blu-ray movies, it is likely that there is something wrong with the Crazy Heart DVD itself. I would suggest looking on it carefully to see if there are any visible scratches or cracks.

If there are some mild scratches, then the DVD should be cleaned. If there is a crack in the DVD, it won't work at all anymore. I would suggest taking a look at this article which identifies how to clean a disk:

My PS3 playd cd dvd but not blue ray games


Problem with the laser it sounds like. If you still have the system apart with the dvd drive out, go ahead and replace the laser. You can usually find them on Ebay.

Ps3 only plays ps3 games now. it will not play dvds or ps2 games. i don't know about blue ray because we don't have any.


Hello,

The Playstation 3, most probabley does so due to drive configuration, sometimes set to default by manufacture, this is done so to give the games for it a chance to make quite a profit margin. To restore the challenge, :) I would try to swap the CD/DVD Drive with an original PS3 Drive. You can get them on <a href=http://www.ebay.com/ target="_self">ebay</a>. This should solve 'em.
Thankyou, :)

PS3 80g only plays DVDs and PS2 games .... help


The reason why DVDS still work and the blu-rays don't is because it's a three part laser. dvd / cd / blu-ray.

The blu-ray portion almost always goes out first.

I have a ps3 and it will play any other games but cod 5


This is a tough one to diagnose, I'd recommend trying to clean the blu-ray drive with a cd / dvd cleaner cd.

Try this first, since it's easy to do and we'll go from there.

My PS3 now will not play PS3 games but still plays PS2 games


You're blu-ray drive has partially died. It's a three part laser (cd, dvd, blu-ray). The most important part of yours has died that's why you can still play dvd and PS2 games because they use the dvd laser and not the blu-ray.

Ps3


The blu-ray portion of your drive has failed.

It's a Sony defect. Drives only last 1-3 years.

The reason the dvd and PS2 games play still is the laser is three part ( cd / dvd / blu-ray) the other portions of the laser are still working, just not the most important one :(

That's the number one problem that I see with the PS3. It's a Sony defect.
