This can be caused by a dirty laser in the drive. Try cleaning the laser with a q-tip and alcohol. If this does not fix your problem, the laser may need to be replaced in the unit. Contact Sony and see if the unit is still under warranty.

Our sony ps3 will not load games it keeps comimg


Either you have a bad hard drive which you could replace with a larger one or try using a DVD cleaning disk in the player if the issue is with the DVD drive. The disk player might need replacing. Good luck!

Ps3 wont read any game/dvd


there is nothing you can do yourself. the ps3 BD drive is bad and needs to be replaced. your only choice is to replace the drive yourself or call sony.

also are you able to play games from the hard drive? if so your BD drive is defective.

My ps3 won't load any games


You can take a can of air and blow it into the drive. There could be dust or dirt on the laser.

If that doesn't work then its either going to be a bad laser in the dvd drive or main board inside of the dvd drive that is bad. You can order replacement lasers for your ps3 dvd drive on Ebay or you can replace the whole drive as well and find those on Ebay.

My PS3 now will not play PS3 games but still plays PS2 games


You're blu-ray drive has partially died. It's a three part laser (cd, dvd, blu-ray). The most important part of yours has died that's why you can still play dvd and PS2 games because they use the dvd laser and not the blu-ray.

PS3 wont play games but will play DVD's


I left all ready some important help about this issue.
I do believe you have a faulty laser since ps3 have 2 diode laser on the same mechanic and each one is independent for loading your disk.You can read dvd movie but no blue ray disk or Ps3 game or vice versa.
If you have few minutes look on my other suggestion
