Hi,

Thanks for using fixYa.

The problem that you are having is a hardware problem. You'd better call sony now and report it to them. Hopefully your ps3 is still under warranty. You do not want to open up your ps3 while its still under warranty... I hope this helps.

Thanks and have a nice day.

My ps3 slim won't play games and blue ray disk but I can still play eve movies on it, please help want to try an fix if before nhl 12 hits the stores.


Hi, It sounds like there's an error with the laser that reads blu ray media as PS3 games and blu ray movies are both stored on blu ray disks which is read by a different type of laser then a dvd is read by. There's nothing you could do to fix that on your own, the only fix I've heard of is sending it in to Sony.

MY PLAYSTATION3 WONT READ GAMES N I HAV ANOTHER THAT HAS THE RED RING


The Blu Ray Laser is wearing out. This is a common issue among the newer video game consoles. The laser is constantly lighting up to read the discs while you are playing your Playstation 3 whether you are playing games, Blu Ray movies, or DVD movies. Eventually the laser will burn out. As it starts to wear out, first the games or movies will freeze. After a while, it will not read Blu Ray at all. Finally it will quit reading anything. You can find lasers at the following website starting at $49.95. The same website also performs repairs of the Playstation 3 console:

Wont read games and only some blu rays but will play dvds and cds and ps2 games


The blu-ray laser is a 3 part laser (cd dvd and blu-ray) the blu-ray portion has failed. The only way to fix it is to swap the laser out with a working one.
It's not hard to do, there are 1000 tutorials on youtube.

My ps3 will not read my disc sometimes and other times it will read it but it will not work


The disc may be quote, "Corrugated", hence the laser is having a hard time following mis ~ aligned structural pattern. Try to use a CD ~ Lens Cleaner. :)

Disc Read error


A disc read error means you will need a new Blu-ray drive. A blu-ray drive can fail to read Blu-ray but play DVD or CD OK. (Or any combination) A new blu-ray drive requires calibration. Contact Sony for the service center you can send it to. www.sony.com

CD wont spin


You are unable to play your discs because the Blu-Ray Lens that enables the PS3 to read Blu-Ray movies or games has gone bad.

There is nothing you can do about it. You need to take it to an authorized Sony Service Center and get the lens replaced.

I have a HP Pavillion DV6920 EA laptop and when I insert a blu-ray dvd into it the laptop can not read the disc


Oh, does it have a Blu-Ray reader? Most laptops are made with a DVD burner max. Check your drive. Blu-Ray is new and too high quality. It needs special players (mostly very expensive) and they cannot be played on normal home DVD players.

The Sony PlayStation 3 is arguably the best Blu-Ray player, apart from being a gaming console.
