More then likely, there was an error with the internal clocks and on a date change they failed, causing the ps3 to not load or read a disk, blu-ray or game.

Unable to load games on ps3 comes up error disc, games worked well previously


if you switch your ps3 onto standby and leave it a min
then you need to hold the on button in till it beeps 3 times then release it will go bk onto standby
then you need to hold it again till it beeps 3 times but last beep will be a double fast beep
a menu should appear on screen
chose the one that says files
this will restore the lens drive and it will load discs

Ps3 wont read games


Try shutting down the ps3, unplug it from the wall and replug it. If it continues to not read it, try another game. If it can't read another game try a blu-ray movie if you have one. If it doesn't ready any of those then your blu-ray laser has failed. If that's the case then you will need to call Sony for a repair =(.

Hope this helps.

PS3 wont read any games, dvds or cds


I have the same problem. My PS3 stopped reading any bluray discs. The spinning circle in the top right corner will come on for a few seconds when a disc is inserted, but then nothing. I found a work-around to get it to read discs though. You have to have a bluray disc in the drive (game or movie) and start a downloaded game or Playstation Home. Once the game or Home loads, hit the PS button on the controller. The crossbar menu will pull up and you will notice the disc icon will (magically) pop up. Click the quit game icon. Once you are out of the downloaded game or Home the disc icon will still be there. You can then load the game or disc. The icon will remain there until you eject the disc, so you will have to repeat this every time you want to load a game. Although this is a workaround to prevent Sony from gouging you for $150+, this is still not a fix. A fix would be for Sony to admit they have a money making firmware problem and fix it. This fix will only work if you don't have an actual hardware failure (which I apparently don't). I think a class action lawsuit is in order for everyone that has this problem and especially for those who have shelled out the money to fix something that is firmware related. I'm sure Sony will only fix the firmware to make this workaround not work anymore so as not to lose their little cash flow scheme.

My PS3 Games wont show up in the games list


Return under warranty.
the blu ray laser will have been slightly overheated and as a result will need to be replaced.
