If the system boots up and goes to the dash board but when you put a game or dvd in does nothing or says it can't read the cd. The problem is the CD Rom is dead. You can try cd rom cleaner cds found at Walmart. It could also be a dirty lens.

Hope this helps

When I turn my ps3 on it won't read any of my games just music...and at first when i put a game in the blue light blinks twice what does this mean?


If your system will read CD's ok, but not DVD's or Blue Ray Disks, the problem is most likely the optical drive. It is a common problem for the drives of PS3's to go out, especially on the original models. The slims have better cooling so don't fail as often.

There are services out there to repair PS3's, and generally an optical drive failure is on the order of $150 for parts and service. You can purchase a drive for your particular model for around $70, but it is not trivial to change yourself. If you have small screwdrivers, and are good with your hands, then you could attempt that route (have done several myself).

If you have a used game retailer in town that sales systems (Game Exchange, EB Games, etc) then you can take it there and they can test the system to verify what type of disks it is reading.

Sorry for the bad news, but there is no easy fix for this one.

Playstation 3 will not read the game disk but will


Hi there,

Try the steps mentioned below and the PS3 will work with the games disks as well;
1) Restore your PS3 to deafault settings under System Settings
2) Hold down the power button for several seconds until the light goes from red to green to red. Once it turns back to red, let go.
3) Finally, Hold down the power button again untill you hear 2 quick beeps... a few seconds. This will repair any damaged sectors in your HD.

Reading disks


HI...
If the innerds on the PS3 are like the PS2 and XBOX then it's something where the DVD drive would need to be opened and the lens cleaned by hand the the rails that the DVD reader rides along would need to be cleaned and lubed.
I've fixed dozens and dozens of consoles this way

My Dvds work but not games


Hi,
Games consoles have 2 individual lasers, or 1 laser that adjusts it,s power higher/lower for different types of media.
The PS2 laser, can be very slightly out of alignment also, which will cause it, to read some disks, and not others.
Try a different game, or music cd.

Thankyou For Using Fixya.
