My ps3 will not read my games , but it will read dvd's


Blu-rays utilise a blue laser within the drive and DVDs use a red laser.
Sounds like the blu-ray/games reading blue laser has died and it'll need replacing.

Why won't my console play blu-ray movies


The Wii doesnt play Blue-Ray "BD" Movies, only the PS3 does, also the Wii doesn't play DVD's.
You can get the Wii to play DVD's by cracking the system by placing files on a SD Card, but your Wii will never play Blue-Ray movie because the system doesn't have the blue laser in the cd drive, sorry.

Have a nice day

Won't load blue ray game


The blue-ray inside your ps3 could be dead. I suggest try playing a DVD-Movie. If this doesn't work than it is dead. To replace it you would either need to call Sony or open the ps3 (This will void your warranty), locate the blue-ray, and find out the model and look in ebay to replace it.

It will not play my games or movies. play demo games


Chances are the blue ray eye is burnt out very common problem. When the disc enters the eye blinks to see there is a disc. Then the motor starts spinning the disc. The eye then figures out if it is a blue ray or a regular disc. If the eye is dirty or burnt out the disc will not spin. Try cleaning the eye first. You might have to tear apart to do if regular laser cleaner disc doesnt work. I have the 40 gig version and it is a paper weight for now. There are replacement eyes and motors for them for around $70. Only recommend this if you are familiar with electronics and are comfortable doing this. You will have to tear apart the system down to the blue ray drive. then tear apart the blue ray drive. There are plenty of you tube videos on how to do this. No you can not just change the whole blue ray drive because the drive is paired with that mother board.

Hi..every ps3 game that i insert too play, it dosnt seems to be apairing up on the main menu (normaly after loading, the disc icon pops up and allows you to start game, but noting). but it seems to play...


Seems to me you ether got a bad drive in this unit or you got scratched or dirty disc. Normally you would try a blue ray disc in this to see if it works if it doesn ot work you might have a issue with your drive.

The ps3 won't recognize that a game or blue ray is there


If your system doesn't recognize blue ray games or blue ray dvds but still plays normal dvds and music cds your lens is dirty. I had this problem and my factory and store warranty are up. I decided to take the machine apart and see what I could do.

If you look online there are several videos how to take the machine apart. I opened the machine up, took out the blue ray drive and opened up the drive. Once you remove the cover from the blue ray drive, take some rubbing alcohol and a Q-tip and clean the lens. I actually used my t-shirt to wipe it and blew on the lens and it did the trick. Before you assemble everything, plug the drive in and pop in a game to see if it works (or you will have to remove all the screws again.) This should solve your problem. If your drive doesn't recognize any media, your laser might be shot.

Once you tear into it and figure out how everything works your realize it's not very complicated. Otherwise you'll end up spending about 150 bucks for Sony to do the same thing.

Ps3 blu ray lens cleaning


What are you saying you screw up your $600 dollar console. OMFG i mean common man. Jeez luis. Well since you have your ps3 already open your ps3 system you should open again and extract cod4 out of your blue ray drive before you hook it up and all that. So take the game out connect the blue ray drive back put the system together and power it up. See if that works.
