Make sure that your firmware is updated correctly. Also make sure the games are the correct region for the unit you're playing on. You may have an incorrect region setup on the PS3. PS3 games are region locked, either being PAL or NTSC. If the PS3 is set to read PAL (by being set to a region that is PAL, like the UK, Europe, and Japan) it will not read or play an NTSC disc.
Misconfigured or corrupted firmware installations can also cause this problem. Furthermore, pirated games will not play, because they do not have the appropriate security key on the disc.
You can try testing this by creating a new profile on the PS3 and trying to play the games. If you can play them with the new profile, then there is a corruption with the old profile. If you can't play them in the new profile, then it could be the firmware.
Lastly you may have a blown drive. Most PS3 games are dual layer blu ray discs capable of storing large amounts of data. The blu ray drive in the PS3 uses a sequenced dual laser to read the game. If one of the laser emitters has blown, it won't read the game correctly. However, since it doesn't use both emitters to read blu ray movie disks or dvds they'll still play correctly.
The problem is not normally with the discs itself but with the lens coming away from where it needs to be. You just need to readjust the lens that sounds difficult but really it is not too tough. Check out this PS3 Repair blog and get the fix you need.
Hi there my PS3 experienced a similar fault (40gb) & I would recomend you contact Sony PS3 Helpline as explained below.
This fault was fixed by contacting Sony Helpline directly & explaining the fault (laser/hard drive damaged). They agreed to fix this fault free of charge & honoured my warranty as I bought this system in January 2007 by faxing them proof of purchase. They arranged to collect my PS3 via courier & advised that it will be returned within approx 3 weeks along with an extended 3 month warranty. I have to say that Sony Helpline were very helpful & their customer assistance was excellent & if your PS3 does breakdown I would recomend that you contact the Helpline first to enquire if they can assist with the problem before seeking to have this fixed at a potential cost of £100.00 upwards by independant PS3 fixers.
Its a problem for the PS3 known as the SoD. It means you cant read any discs now. You can play demos and stuff stored on ur PS3 thpugh. If its under warranty, sony WILL fix it for ya. If not, be ready to shell out 125$
It's a Sony
defect with the blu-ray lasers. They only last 1-3 years with average
use. If your PS3 is less than a year old and you still have the
original receipt Sony will repair the problem for free. Otherwise
they're going to charge you $150 for the repair. You can reach them at:
Unless you have a technical background in
electronics there's nothing I would suggest doing. A firmware update
and or CD /DVD cleaner disk will do nothing for your problem. I've
fixed more than 100 PS3's with this exact problem so I know exactly
what I'm talking about.
Same problem here, your only option is to send it in to sony. I'm about to click submit with my card information to pay the fee. Mine reads everything but blu ray games and movies. If yours is over a year old it's probably out of warranty like mine unless you bought the extended warranty. For you crlnmcgrth, i would check and see if you can find out when you bought yours exactly. If you are still under warranty sony will fix it for free or send you another system identical to yours for free. Call 1-800-345-sony. They open at 9 am est or 6 pst. Hope this helps.
this must be a bd reading problem ....so i think that the bd reader is damaged i dunno how but it seems to be that the bds aren't running so u'd better try any other game ...if it doesn't work so please go to sony mending center r maybe u can contact the store where u have bought ur ps3...
