Hi,

This is a very common problem on the Ps3 and is a typical symptom that the Bluray drive is malfunctioning. Usually this can be pinpointed to the laser lens within the drive which is failing to read information from the disk. Sometimes this can be resolved by cleaning the laser but this is not always guaranteed to work.

For a full breakdown on the issues and solutions involved please view this FixYa Tip.

If the solution helps - please do leave a vote for it.

Thanks.

Why can't i play ps2 games on ps3 consul?


ps2 games are ment to be only played at ps2 and ps3 games are only ment to be played at ps3. even though you might think that ps3 is a higher version of ps2 so ps3 should play the old games but its not like that. when a ps2 game is developed, it is made to only run on a ps2 platform and nothing else. its programed in such a way, that is why it will not run in a ps3 platform. its the same thing l;ike you cannot play a XBOX360 game on a ps3 platform cause the game company has made it not to run on other consoles.
hope it solves your problem.

Ps3 only plays ps3 games now. it will not play dvds or ps2 games. i don't know about blue ray because we don't have any.


Hello,

The Playstation 3, most probabley does so due to drive configuration, sometimes set to default by manufacture, this is done so to give the games for it a chance to make quite a profit margin. To restore the challenge, :) I would try to swap the CD/DVD Drive with an original PS3 Drive. You can get them on <a href=http://www.ebay.com/ target="_self">ebay</a>. This should solve 'em.
Thankyou, :)

My ps3 is playing ps2 games but not ps3 games


Your blueray is broken,

you can try and do a system restore which will reset everything like the first day your turned it on just
go to -- system settings/system restore/format hardrive-- also be sure you backup your filessystem restore eg. your game saves.

If that doesn't work you'll have to call sony and send it in for repairs 1-800-345-SONY to receive repair/replacement they will send you a box to send your ps3 in. Its free if your still under warrenty but since your ps3 is playing ps2 games most likely your warrenty is gone. So it will cost you 150 bucks.

I hope the system repair works for you, it has for a few people.
