reset to the factory default then load ver 2.60(most current). If the system still does not read any discs the laser is bad.

SOURCE: My PS3 won't play PS3 Games

I called Sony and they helped me resolved this same problem...


1. Turn off the ps3.
2. press down on the on/off button on the front of ps3 while turning on the button from the back. DO not let it go until you hear 2 beeps and will show a red light.
3. press the on/off button again and do not let it go until you hear 1 beep, paused, and two beeps. Let it go.
4. There should be a prompt asking you what to do. If you have hdmi, answer all the question yes etc.
5 there should be a menu list asking what you need done.. setting wise..

6. Choose the # 3rd list (not sure how many they were).
7. IF it tells you that your data is corrupted etc.. just click ok
8. wait till progress ends ( if it tells your your data is corrupted again, just click ok again).
9. It's going to do some loading again...
10.. end of restoring and you should see your ps3 menu..

It will not play my games or movies. play demo games


Chances are the blue ray eye is burnt out very common problem. When the disc enters the eye blinks to see there is a disc. Then the motor starts spinning the disc. The eye then figures out if it is a blue ray or a regular disc. If the eye is dirty or burnt out the disc will not spin. Try cleaning the eye first. You might have to tear apart to do if regular laser cleaner disc doesnt work. I have the 40 gig version and it is a paper weight for now. There are replacement eyes and motors for them for around $70. Only recommend this if you are familiar with electronics and are comfortable doing this. You will have to tear apart the system down to the blue ray drive. then tear apart the blue ray drive. There are plenty of you tube videos on how to do this. No you can not just change the whole blue ray drive because the drive is paired with that mother board.

Ps3 wont read games


Try shutting down the ps3, unplug it from the wall and replug it. If it continues to not read it, try another game. If it can't read another game try a blu-ray movie if you have one. If it doesn't ready any of those then your blu-ray laser has failed. If that's the case then you will need to call Sony for a repair =(.

Hope this helps.

I a playstation 3 Blue-ray disc remote control which wont pair


Go to Accessory settings in the PS3 Settings menu,which will have you register/sync the BD controller with the system. Follow the onscreen instructions &it will give the controller a #. Remember that any universal remote wont work..it has to be the Sony PS3 remote, as they use bluetooth technology instead of the usual infrared.

My ps3 wont play blue ray discs or my games anymore


if your ps3 doesnt play ANY games or dvds, that may mean that the eye on the ps3(the thing that reads the disks and dvds) is malfunctioning, not moving efficiently enough to procces the disk, not recognizing the encrypted code on the disks, or the optical eye could even be scratched. the disk feed could also not be feeding the disk in far enough for the eye to read it. i would definitly suggest calling customer service and/or bringing the ps3 to an A+ certified technition to "diagnose" your problem.

My ps3 blue ray wont read any disc


Have you attached the original blu ray board to the replacement unit?
That board is paired with the motherboard and will not work with a different one.

BD and All Games do not register.


If you go into the ps3 settings you can reformat your hard drive, may have become corrupted. Do this as a last resort, make sure you back up you saves. Support Rich
