I THINK it has something to do with the Blu Ray lazer, something which is quite expensive to replace, I recomend taking it to a rapair shop or something, because unless you are VERY good with electronics, a lazer repair is USUALLY reasonably difficultto replace.

The laser may be bad, if your warranty is over go to ebay and find one then put it in.

Can't read or play any DVDs, CDs or games. Can do


It sounds like the drive is failing. If it will turn on, but can't read any media then I would suggest cleaning it, checking it for warranty replacement, or exchanging it at the place you purchased it, if it is possible.

Playstation 3 only reads playstation 2 games


this could be a problem with your blueray lens, the question you have given isnt really specific but, if it can play (ps2 games, cds or dvds) but not (blueray films or ps3 games) then it will be your blueray lens and will cost around £120 to repair from sony unless it is under warranty hope this helps..

My playstation 2 plays movies but will not read games why?


The 'Eye' that the PS uses to read DVDs/CDs are different, the one that reads cds has gone bad on yours it seems, so you should still be able to play the games that have the dvd logo, if it is still under warranty I reccommend calling sony.

Playstation 3 wont read some cds or play downloaded demos.


I'm also having this problem as well, it has to do with the OS and it is corrupted. It seems like the "Game mode" has been corrupted preventing us from playing games on the hard drive or reading games.
