Hi

You cannot repair the bluray lens - you will have to replace it with a new one. There is an excellent walk-through on how to do this below.

You can however try cleaning the lens very gently with isopropyl alcohol and a Q tip before replacing it. If this fails your only option is to replace as per the video below.

*Please ensure your PS3 is completely disconnected from the mains supply before opening the cover and attempting these types of repairs.*

Thanks for using FixYa.

My PS3 will play PS2 games but not PS3 games is it something to do with the blue ray?


Your Bluray lens needs replacing. Its quite a common problem. I repair them in South Africa and charge R900, about $120. Im sure there are many companies/people repairing this countrywide. Just google, or check on gumtree.

My BDP S550 was working playing most blurays. The other day I put the original release avatar bluray in and it came up as disc unknown, which had worked before. Now no blurays work in my bluray player...


If nothing is playing, you either have a dirty lens or it's out of alignment and will need service. Try a DVD lens cleaner that uses fluid, they usually cost 20 or so and can be purchased just about anywhere these days. If it still won't play, it's a service issue and needs repair/replacement, depending on cost. Get an estimate first. Hope the cleaner works!!!

None of my ps3 games will play but normal dvds all work fine. any ideas?



well, the 40gig model of the ps3 can have either the dual laser lens, or the single laser lens in it. they started out with the KES-400A single laser lens, but somwhere along the line, they started putting the KES-410A dual laser lens in them, which is supposed to be a more reliable laser lens, but they do fail as well. the most common reason why a ps3 won't read ps3 games and bluray discs, but will read dvds or cds is because they have a red diode that only reads dvds and cds, and a blue diode that reads bluray and ps3 game discs. i would say your blue diode has kicked the bucket and needs to be replaced. you will either need to send the system to sony for repair, or to a third part company to have it replaced, or you can replace the laser lens assembly yourself

Ps3 wont read disc


First you need to verify that all types of discs won't read. there are 3 types that a ps3 will play CD, DVD and BluRay. If none of them work then your laser is either dirt and needs to be cleaned or is bad. If say dvd and cd works than the BluRay part of the lens needs to be calibrated which requires takign the system apart an voiding warranties.

Ps3 will play a bluray but not a ps3 game


The laser lens is out of calibration, or the laser lens needs replaced. I repair these often with 99% success rate.

Ps3 all of the sudden will not play bluray discs my tv is 1080p and ive been playing them for awhile but not it will start the bluray and then a little circle in the upper right corner will be moving then...


Try using a cleaner disc to clean the lens assembly. If this dose not produce results, replace the entire optical lens assembly.

Contact Sony for this repair.

Ps3 wont play games, dvds, or blurays. The disc doesn't spin??


This may be a case of replacing the laser lens. If your console is out of warranty, take it to your local Game Stop, or somewhere that does Sony repair. PSR does Sony authorized repair, but it usually involves shipping. You can contact PSR at 877-777-3491, or email at psr_repairs@msn.com. Hope this was helpful
