You may have installed a different blu ray laser into the consel then the model that was manufactured.... sony and microsoft are contently updating there system and changing small things in the hardware so it is always a good thing to run your model number with the parts that are installed to insure you have replaced it with the proper part

It will play ps2 games **** not ps3 and it is a ps3


Hi jhoover64,

Launch PS3 models and PS3 models with backwards compability have different disk lenses for blu-ray disks and dvd disks. Which means that you can have a faulty blu-ray lense that doesn't work, but as long as your dvd disk lense works you'll be able to play PS2 games and DVD movies.

Sadly the only way to repair a fault disk lense is by getting it to official tech support. You could try ordering the replacement parts and having it repaired by a third party or yourself but this is not recommended since it void the PS3 warranty.

Hope this helped you!

PS3 stop reading disks? heres how to fix it.


So your shiney black pearl stopped reading discs huh? Now you are wondering if you can fix it because A)You are out of warranty and don't wanna pay almost 200 bucks to have it fixed or B) You are under warranty but don't wanna be without your PS3 for almost a month or longer .... Maybe you casn fix it on your own, if the problem is simple enough.

Sometimes the PS3 won't read discs simply because the lens is dirty, to find out if thats the case insert a game or blu-ray disc ... take careful note of the disc's 'label' as you put it in ... once it doesn't read after 10-15 seconds eject it ... if the disc's label hasn't moved your blu-ray drive's 'motor' is broken. Best bet is to send back to Sony and pay em. Or take the PS3 apart and try to replace the whole blu-ray drive.

If you remove the disc and notice it has moved your lens is probably dirty. This you 'can' fix yourself. First give the PS3 a GOOD cleaning. Vacuum it, blast it with a can of compressed air, vacuum again. Try disc.

Didn't work? Try a lens cleaner kit.

Didn't work? Time to get your hands dirty ... open the PS3 up (at your own risk) and clean the laser manually with pure alcohol and a q-tip. (video tutorials are on youtube.com)

Disc read errors are our main problem. It isn't some full blown epidemic but IS becoming worse by the day. My reasoning for this problem is simple: The PS3 is a dust MAGNET. I'm betting 90% of the disc read errors are cause by dust and dirt and pet hair getting in the machine and making the lens dirty or causing actual failure of the drive motor itself.

I love the PS3 and wish it didn't fail for anyone, especially this month with great titles almost here, but it happens. Happened to me on April 1st and I found out my blu-ray drive motor failed. A dirty lens I woulda fixed on my own. We really need a good blu-ray cleaner kit to come on the market in all major retail stores.

Peace PS3 fans.

PS3 Disc Reading Problems


Your blu-ray laser is bad which is why it will still play regular dvds. Contact Sony to see if it is till under warranty.

Playstation 3 will not read disc , can i clean lens myself? not under warranty. just stopped reading the disc's


You can clean the lens but it almost never fixes the problem.

The problem is usually the blu-ray laser itself. It needs to be replaced.

Whenever i load a blu ray disc into my ps3 it loads for a while and then just stops reading the disc altogether. i get this impression from hearing the disc spinning but after some jerks it just stops....


The first thing you need to do is clean the lens off.You won't void the warranty if you go and buy a dvd cleaner.All you do is put it in the ps3 and let it run.

Ps3 40gb cant read any game and disc


That is pointing towards a bad blu ray drive, I since it wont read any disc that is the likely cause. Is the system still under warranty? if so do not try to open the PS3, that will void the warranty

PS3 Freezes with all blu-ray type discs.


You are Partially right.
Ps3 actually work with 2 different diode laser inside.one is Blue and one is red and both working on 2 separate circuit but with the same coil.i do believe the blue diode is dead or defective and that`s why you are able to read dvd(regular one) but no blu ray dvd or ps3 games.Try to clean your lens or replace your laser and you will resolve your problem
