My dvds work but my ps3 games dont work whats the problem?

Here is a cut and paste:

Go to playstation network and look for entering safe mode there you can repair file structure and that fixed my PS3 when it did the same thing.

Ps3 disc reading problem


This is a common problem on the PS 3 unfortunately and is caused by a faulty blue-ray drive. Unit will have to go back to Sony for service. However if you are confident with electronics there are several videos on YouTube showing how to replace the drive if you choose to order it and do it yourself.

Hope this helps. Please remember to rate my answer. Many Thanks.

Reads ps2 games not ps3

If you have a copy of your receipt, you need to call Sony. They will send you a box and e-mail you a pdf with instructions. The lasers on these units are cheap. I have had 2 PS3's with disc read errors after 2 months of ownership.
If you don't have the receipt or if your unit is out of warranty it will cost $150.00 to fix-
