The PS3 has a special Recovery Menu, which you can access in the following way:
1. Turn off Playstation 3.
2. Hold the power button down; the system will turn on and turn off once again.
3. Once the System has been shutdown, re-press you finger until you hear 2 consecutive beeps
4. When you hear the 2 beeps take finger off power button.
5. You will be prompted to plug in your controller via USB and then hit the PS button
6. The Recovery menu will pop up.

The current Recovery Menu supports:
• Restart System: Restarts the PLAYSTATION 3 System.
• Restore Default Settings: Reset all system settings back to default.
• Restore File System: Checks for corrupt/missing system files.
• Rebuild Database: Rebuilds the OS for the PLAYSTATION 3.
• Restore PS3 System: Fresh restore; Deletes everything and starts from Scratch.
• System Update: Update the PLAYSTATION 3 System

From the above select option "Rebuild Database". After PS3 has executed this DB rebuilding operation, the disc games will be visible again in the menu.

Ps3 player wont play blueray discs says needs up date


I don't believe there is an update that will make the Blueray stop reading, or start working. Your disk drive might be bad and needs to be replaced.

Tip

"If a audio disc plays but not dvd,blueray, or game disc you got a bad laser."...


Have you had your Ps3 drive tell you its just will not read?

Here are some major causes:

1. Dirty drive.
2. Motor not spinning the disc fast enough.
3. Bad optical laser.

Step 1

Listen for the drive does it spin up?
Listen for the read head.
Put a audio disc in does it play?

If a audio disc plays but not dvd,blueray, or game disc you got a bad laser.

I recommend you do the following:

1. Make sure you match up you serial number on your unit.
2. Purchase the whole kit not just the laser.

The kit looks like this:


ae2a243.jpgThe cost of these drives are from $50 to $120 respectively. I do not suggest Ebay I would suggest a Store that sales these with warranty intact. Do not get fouled by ebay scams.

Thanks for reading my tips. Please do leave a positive rating. Thanks for using fixya.com.

Why wont my PS3 play any blueray games or movies?


Try using a lens cleaning disc. If that doesn't help your PS3's disc drive is probably dying. Time to call Sony support...

Won't play a blue ray disc


The blueray eye is out. You will need a new blueray player. The only problem with that is the ps3 will only respond with the orginal parts it came with. ( i.e. motherboard blueray player ) So the best bet is to buy a broken blueray player and take the eye out and replace it with yours just the eye not the whole thing.

I have had my ps3 80gb for a couple of years now but have never tried to play a blueray disc untill today. An on screen message states that I must renew the encryption key. Perform a system software update...


You will not be able to play some newer disc because of the technology embedded in them. The updates allow for those necessary files to be implemented into your system giving it the ability to play games and blu rays. Get your system updated.

Download the firmware from the playstation official website onto a usb

stick. Follow the instructions on the website at: www.playstation.com (the update will be at the bottom of the page, on the right side.)

Ps3 plays DVD and Blueray just fine, but will not play game discs... can't seem to read them. discs are in perfect condition, tried several different discs, no luck.


Some time when that happens the system configuration is wrong reset the configuration to game play on. That should let you play Movies and game.But!, make sure you remove the disk.

PS3 READING DVD'S + CD'S BUT NOT GAMES WHATS UP ?


Hello,

To start the laser reads disc's differently. A CD or DVD is just your typical disc then you have blueray which your games are burned onto a blueray disc. Your optical lens is damaged and likely unable to read blueray format.

If you have a blueray movie or can borrow one, try it and see if it still plays that will determine if that is the problem.

If so you will have to replace the optical lens,

Note: Opening your PS3 will void your warranty, so if you are still covered, it is best to send it in to Sony for repair.

Good news is it is easy to do and there are many free step by step tutorials with pictures or videos to show you how. If you must do it yourself.
