You need a new laser. But you can try to clean first with cotton swab and alcohol. More than likley laser diode is burnt out.

My playstation 3 Will not load games dvd or music


If your PS3 is not loading games, DVDs, or Music CDs, your blu-ray drive is probably dead. Replace the drive and you should be back to normal. These drives are known to quit working, well, it is a common problem. If your PS3 is new, and still within the warranty period, contact Sony for Repair: http://esupport.sony.com/

My ps3 sometimes loads my games but other times it wont load them at all but it is still loading my dvds and cds


Well it sounds like your Blu ray laser is broken. Your best bet is to send it in to Sony for repairs.

My ps3 wont load any of my games but still plays my dvds


First off, have you tried playing Blu-Ray movies/games instead of DVD's?
If you have and only the DVD's work then it sounds like the "blu ray" part of the drive has died.

In the PS3 blu ray drive there is a lens for blu ray movies/games and a seperate one for dvd/cd's. Sounds like the blu ray lens one broke.
The cost for repair of this $150 dollars if not under warranty.
Now before calling sony try this.
  1. Update your firmware (if you aren't running the latest already). Yup, this overwrites some of system software that may have been corrupted.

  2. First, back up your game saves, and any music you have on your HDD. Format the PS3! Yup, again this fixes corrupted files on the HDD by forcing the PS3 to rewrite them.

  3. Buy a Blu-Ray cleaner and try it.

Sadly if these don't work, you will need to give Sony a call, and have that coffin mailed your way.

My console works and lets me play online games but it wont let me play disk games how can i fix this


Your Blu-ray drive has gone bad most likely. Try inserting a blu-ray movie to double check. Also, try to play a music cd or a dvd. I usually see that cd's and dvds will play but the BR movies and games will not.If your concole is less that 1 year old, contact sony for a warranty repair. If it is older than 1 year, they will repair it for a cost.

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 play ps3 games but not dvds. it loads the dvd then turns black. Any suggestions?


The ps3 blu-ray laser is a 3 part system (cd, dvd, and blu-ray) More than likely the dvd portion of the laser is damaged.

I'd recommend using the ps3 to play games / blu-rays until the laser completely fails before replacing.

Here's a website with some tips and advice.

Games will not load on my ps3(discs)


The blu-ray portion of the laser has gone out.

It's the number one problem with the older PS3's.

The ONLY way to fix it is to replace the blu-ray laser.

PS3 80g only plays DVDs and PS2 games .... help


The reason why DVDS still work and the blu-rays don't is because it's a three part laser. dvd / cd / blu-ray.

The blu-ray portion almost always goes out first.
