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.

Playstation will play ps2 games movies an cds but wont play my ps3 games


Hey Ron,

What happens you put a ps3 disc in the drive? Does it not register at all? Does it read BLUERAY movies because if so it should read games as well.

I have one of the older model playstation 3 consoles, it plays ps2 games as well. lately it's been having a hard time reading the ps3 discs. sometimes I have to take the disc out and put back in about ten...


The PS3 disk and the Bluray disk require more intensity from the laser or, depending which model you own, has a seperate lens to read them all together. PS2 games are equivilant to DVDs and then you have CDs at the bottom. Check out "how to clean my Bluray lens" on google. Might even check youtube. All you need is alcohol and q-tips. Don't press down too hard when cleaning and don't worry, the alcohol dries very quickly. Clean it with alchol then cleans again with dry q-tip. very easy.

NOTE: when removing the Bluray drive from the board, the ribbon clips "flip up" and DO NOT "pull out" like most PCs (computers) do....if you are familiar.

Ps3 wont read dvd or bluray discs


If you are facing problems of freezing and non-readable disc you should first try lens cleaning, the best option would be to give it for repairs to Sony if your product is under warranty

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-
