Re: ps3 wont read games discs
Ts a problem with the latest download update. sorry to say but its a
job for sony as long as its still under warranty. just phone them up
explain the probs your having and they will send you a new (normally
reconditioned) unit out. sony's replacement service is very good.

The Blu Ray Laser is wearing out. This is a common issue among the newer video game consoles. The laser is constantly lighting up to read the discs while you are playing your Playstation 3 whether you are playing games, Blu Ray movies, or DVD movies. Eventually the laser will burn out. As it starts to wear out, first the games or movies will freeze. After a while, it will not read Blu Ray at all. Finally it will quit reading anything. You can find lasers at the following website starting at $49.95. The same website also performs repairs of the Playstation 3 console:
Ive only had mine for 2 months and it just stopped playing dvds all together. I had a brand new dvd playing, went to switch it to another new dvd movie and it wouldnt read it or any other dvd Ive tried. I havent tried a blu ray disc yet.
Most likely you need a new eye.My ps3 wasn't reading neither.At first it was reading everything but blu-ray.Then it wasn't reading anything.Little circle in corner be spinning and everything.I cleaned my eye I used cd cleaner didn't work.My system is out of warranty so had to get it fixed on own.So i opened it got a q-tip wiped it off with alcohol switched ends.With dry tip and dried the eye off.That will help you if your ps3 reads everything but blu-ray.But all it was really doing is telling me my eye was dying.Suddenly it read nothing so I invested in a new eye.Put it in myself now she's running like a champ.Hope this help but if your system still play dvd movies and ps2 games.Your blu-ray is acting up go by my steps first.Before destroying your ps3 or buying another might be a 50 dollar problem.Compared to sony 160 to send you another used 1.
the blu ray player uses a magnified lens ( likely used in ps3 games
too) which is not used when playing ps2 or regular dvds...why they
work, any spec or suface wear to the lens will cause the system not to
read the discs) , a cleaning disc wont work as
the ps3 wont recognize what it is and not play it... only solution i
found was to send in for service , which costs @ 150 bucks! I hope this helps
