My ps3 slim won't play games and blue ray disk but I can still play eve movies on it, please help want to try an fix if before nhl 12 hits the stores.


Hi, It sounds like there's an error with the laser that reads blu ray media as PS3 games and blu ray movies are both stored on blu ray disks which is read by a different type of laser then a dvd is read by. There's nothing you could do to fix that on your own, the only fix I've heard of is sending it in to Sony.

Ok your laser is bad. You need to replace it. Your laser has a blu ray diode which lights up blue and reads ps3 games and blu ray games. Then it has a red diode which plays ps2 games dvds cds ps1 games. Your blu ray diode is burned up. You will have to replace the laser its pretty simple.

Wont load any disk


Like said above, It needs a new laser. It's a really common problem.

I buy mine at http://parts.consolerepairguy.com they run about $75 each.

I run a repair business and that place has best prices aside from Hong Kong which I don't trust.

I have bought several American Blue Ray disks from Amazon but they won't play on my PS3. Any Ideas on how to unlock the disks so they will play on PS3 or have i just wasted rather a lot of money? Help...


If you have bought Blu-Rays from the wrong region, you have wasted your money. There is no way to use a blu-ray disc from another region on your PS3. Next time, try to get region-free Blu-Ray discs.

if your ur blue-ray wont play the movies try this 1st before you waste ur cash......Check the 24 Hz setting in the BD/Blu-ray setting area. Some televisions do not support this option. Turn it off. It will prevent blu-ray movies from playing.

Playstation 3 - Wont play games or Blu- Rays


Hi there, it sounds like your blu ray laser has become faulty. Unfortunately this is a very common problem for the PS3 and there is not much that can be done about it. New lasers can be bought but they are difficult to fix. You could buy a new drive from somewhere like ebay at a cost of around £60. They are much easier to fit than the lasers themselves but you must make sure you keep the circuit board on your blu ray drive and swap it to the replacement drive as this is paired to the motherboard and will not work if it is not with the original motherboard.

Hope this helps
