Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console

1 Answer

Having an issue with my PS3. Its not playing any DVD or Blu Rays at this time. Its still playing PS# games however, so that is weird. I've tried multiple DVDs and blu rays, a few of them are brand new, so I don't think its an issue with the discs. I left the system alone for an hour, but its still not working. I'm really hoping for a solution that doesn't involve me spending 150 bucks to repair it. Thank you for the help.

The blue ray lens is burned out atm. you will need to replace the entire optical assembly in this case. the lens are integrated in on the same one piece assembly.

When i try to play a dvd on my ps3 its telling me region code not found


hi there,
the ps3 will only play dvd's from your region(e.g. region 1 usa, 2 europe etc..) So depending on where you got your dvd, if it's not the region as your ps3, the ps3 will not play the dvd. however the ps3 will play blu-rays and games from anywhere in the world as it plays region-free blu-ray discs. I know it's a pain in the neck, but you will have to find a region free dvd player to play that dvd. Hope this helps.

New Hawx 2 for ps3 freezes at 17% load. But, all other games play, as well as blu-rays. Exchanged disc for a new one, but still having same problem~


You may have an issue with your laser, Each game has multiple layers, Your ps3 Blu-Ray Lens may be dirty or starting to weaken and not able to access all layers of a disc,

That is also a common issue on the older fat ps3 systems,

My suggestion is try using a dvd drive cleaner, Usually picked up at staples or walmart for less then ten dollars, It looks like a dvd but has soft bristles on the bottom that clean off the lens.

My ps3 60gb doesn't read blu-rays


Hi.

It is either firmware or lens problem. In either case the PS will be replaced or repaired for free by Sony, this is considered factory defect.

Contact Sony at the number listed on the PS manual, or see PS3™ | Support online.

About the lens problem, a BRD device with lens issue may be able to read DVD and CD but not BRD.

My ps3 will play ps3 games but not dvds. it loads the dvd then turns black. Any suggestions?


The ps3 blu-ray laser is a 3 part system (cd, dvd, and blu-ray) More than likely the dvd portion of the laser is damaged.

I'd recommend using the ps3 to play games / blu-rays until the laser completely fails before replacing.

Here's a website with some tips and advice.

PS3 will play blu-rays just fine, but not DVD


A bad laser could affect the sound cause it can't read all the information from the disc. Try games as well and see if it does the same thing, sounds like a new drive is in order. There is one laser in those drives and require different strengths to read different discs. Also try a music disc that you know is good. If your still getting the same issue then get the drive replaced or just replace the laser if you have some technical knowledge.

My ps3 will not play any ps3 games at all


If it won't play blu rays either it'll mean your blu ray laser is gone (inside the ps3 there is one for blu rays and one for dvds cds etc)

Talk to Sony about it

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.

Blu-ray playback freeze


1st DO NOT EXPOSE THE BLU-RAY FOR ANY REASON - You run the risk of blindness and radiation exposure!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Please advise what FirmWare Version you are currently running on. You can find this under;
Settings>System Settings>System Information.

Once I have this info I will provide you with the best fix if needed but It is probably down to out of date drivers. There have been a number of changes to the blurays drivers recently and if these havent been updated then this will most likely be your problem. To solve this all you need to do is take your system online and download the newest FirmWare update. - There are people who NEVER use the system online for different reasons. Since you brought the system BluRay has gone through 4 upgrades. Any BluRays you buy now wll likely be incompatible for playback with the drivers you have on your system.

If you need any further advice on getting online with thew PS3 please post it as a new issue and I will help you - but the PS3 talks you through it to be honest
