My psp 3 will play psp2 games but wont play psp3 games


Try playing a lens cleaning disc in it, just in case this is from a lens being slightly dirty. Chances are that the ROM isn't reading Blu-Ray and will have to be repaired or replaced.

Playstation 3 (PS3) Console: hi, my playstation 3 wont play dvds or video games...


IF YOU HAVE WARRANTY SEND IT TO SONY!
You can try powering on to your "diagnostic screen", (there are videos online to show you how) and try restoring your file system. If this does not work, listen to the area that you insert your disk while inserting. if it sound like it is spinning, then you may have a dirty lens. If it is making a "studdering noise" then your Bluray laser is bad and needs to be replaced. The part is about $50.00 on ebay on not hard to do.

This should tell you how to determine the laser model that you need. Your model number is on teh back left and starts with CECH

Wont play when i insert disks only the games on there


I had a similar problem. My PS3 did not start the disk based games. Those disk based games were not visible in the game menu.

I did not have problems with the normal movie DVDs or movie Blu Rays. Those were working fine. Also downloaded games were working ok.

In case you have the similar problem, you should try the following steps;

The PS3 has a special Recovery Menu, which you can access in the following way;:

1. Turn off Playstation 3.
2. Hold the power button down; the system will turn on and turn off once again.
3. Once the System has been shutdown, re-press you finger until you hear 2 consecutive beeps
4. When you hear the 2 beeps take finger off power button.
5. You will be prompted to plug in your controller via USB and then hit the PS button
6. The Recovery menu will pop up.

The current Recovery Menu supports:
• Restart System: Restarts the PLAYSTATION 3 System.
• Restore Default Settings: Reset all system settings back to default.
• Restore File System: Checks for corrupt/missing system files.
• Rebuild Database: Rebuilds the OS for the PLAYSTATION 3.
• Restore PS3 System: Fresh restore; Deletes everything and starts from Scratch.
• System Update: Update the PLAYSTATION 3 System

Select option "Rebuild Database".

After PS3 has executed the DB rebuilding operation, the disc games will be visible again in the menu and are starting automatically when inserted to PS3.
