Problems with Blu-ray after 3.01 firmware update

The ps3 don`t read blu-ray discs or games after 3.01 firmware update. What I can do?

    I don`t think that is a lens problem, because everything goes fine until the 3.01 firmware update.

SOURCE: PS3 won't recognize disks after update

You can back up ANYTHING you wish to keep via the backup utility what I'm about to tell you to do will essentially erase your harddrive. After backing up any data you wish to keep, restore your PS3 system and to a FULL ( not quick ) format of your harddrive ( this will probably take a couple of hours ). After that, if it still doesn't work call SONY.

Hope that helps..........

Playstation 3 not playing games but will play blu ray discs


Make sure that your firmware is updated correctly. Also make sure the games are the correct region for the unit you're playing on. You may have an incorrect region setup on the PS3. PS3 games are region locked, either being PAL or NTSC. If the PS3 is set to read PAL (by being set to a region that is PAL, like the UK, Europe, and Japan) it will not read or play an NTSC disc.

Misconfigured or corrupted firmware installations can also cause this problem. Furthermore, pirated games will not play, because they do not have the appropriate security key on the disc.

You can try testing this by creating a new profile on the PS3 and trying to play the games. If you can play them with the new profile, then there is a corruption with the old profile. If you can't play them in the new profile, then it could be the firmware.

Lastly you may have a blown drive. Most PS3 games are dual layer blu ray discs capable of storing large amounts of data. The blu ray drive in the PS3 uses a sequenced dual laser to read the game. If one of the laser emitters has blown, it won't read the game correctly. However, since it doesn't use both emitters to read blu ray movie disks or dvds they'll still play correctly.

We are having problems with our BRD player BDP s300 playing BRD. It will play regular DVD just fine.


In most cases, the issue might be with the Java contents on the new Blu-ray discs is making this issues. The Blu-ray technology is developing everyday and adding more and more features to the existing technology. Hence it is required to make the Blu-ray Player up-to-date by installing the latest firmware update available from the manufacturer (who ever it is). Going ahead with the first step, please install the latest firmware update available for the Blu-ray Player.
Please click the following link to get the latest firmware update available for your Blu-ray Player:
http://esupport.sony.com/US/perl/swu-download.pl?upd_id=6170&mdl=BDPS300
You can review the "Important Notes" and "Firmware Update Instructions" on the page to get the instructions to install the firmware update.
If the issue persists after installing the firmware update, the would have been with the disc. Check the disc with another player, try different discs with same player.
If the Blu-ray Player is not at all playing any Blu-ray disc, then it may require service.

Reads disc fine, then freezes


Start with a firmware update (make sure there is no disc in the drive when you do it)

Then do a System Restore.

If that doesn't work then it's probably a problem with your blu-ray drive itself. You might get by with just cleaning the laser.

Otherwise call Sony @ 1-800-345-SONY

Console unable to play


I had this exact problem (drive stopped reading discs, then firmware update stopped at 71% with error 8002F14E). It is not a software / firmware issue, the problem is with your Blu-ray drive. Either one of the cables connecting it to the motherboard is damaged, or perhaps there is a problem with the laser or diode. In my case, the clip attachingthe drive's ribbon cable to the motherboard had come undone. Luckily, I managed to fix it myself, and the firmware update finished smoothly after that.

If you're not comfortable with opening the console and checking out the drive yourself, you'll have to send it in for repairs (since, as I said, it is generally a hardware problem, not something you can fix by redownloading the firmware or whatever).
