Hi,

This is a very common problem on the Ps3 and is the first sign that your Bluray drive is malfunctioning.

Sometimes you can resolve it by opening the case and gently cleaning the lens with a Q-Tip and some isopropyl alcohol but most often the lens itself or indeed the whole drive unit will need replacing.

I have included this excellent walk-through on how you can do this yourself.

Please be sure the console is disconnected from the mains supply before carrying out any of this type of work including lens cleaning.

Otherwise the unit will have to be returned to Sony who generally replace the whole drive unit including the lens. Cost from Sony is $150 to make the repair.

Thanks for using FixYa

Put game in but cant play game the ps3 doesnt register the game


Does it register other games? If it does, there could be a problem with that CD (I would suggest wiping it off and checking for scratches).
If it doesn't recognize any of your other CDs, it's more than likely an issue with the reader, and for that you will want to check with Sony.

My play station doesn't recognize dvds or games I put them in and no icon comes on and it doesn't paly


The Playstation 3 is a wonderful video game console, however, with heavy usage, the laser does eventually burn out. The first signs of the laser starting to burn out is that your game will start freezing during game play. Eventually the game will stop reading altogether (even though movies sometimes still work). Eventually movies will stop working and the whole laser will eventually die.

The following website sells PS3 lasers and also performs repairs:

If that is the case.. the manufacture of Playstation 3 have stop installing compability software to play a previous game on their new console.. so Playstation 2 or 1 game are not able to play on PS3..

I you want to play older game you can play using psx or pcsx2 emulator...

My playstation 3 crashed on cod mw2 and now wont play games


first call would be to sony, this is a common sign that the blu-ray disc reade ris knackered. i know it still plays dvd's and cd's but so did mine when the reader went on it. word of warning if sony send out an engineer to take your playstation away for repair remove the hardrive as they wipe them before returning it to you, and nothing worse than losing all of your saved data and profile info.

Playstation 3 Stopped Playing Blu Ray Discs and Games


It's a factory defect. I've fixed over 100 PS3's with the same exact problem. Your blu-ray laser went out. You need to contact Sony or if you're in Los Angeles you can contact me. I fix the problem for $120 and within 30 minutes. Sony charges $150+ and takes God knows how long.

Playstation 3 wont read some cds or play downloaded demos.


I'm also having this problem as well, it has to do with the OS and it is corrupted. It seems like the "Game mode" has been corrupted preventing us from playing games on the hard drive or reading games.
