I would say that you need to do a system update that will allow the game to boot. Each new PS3 game that comes out has the latest update on it and your PS3 may be having trouble accessing it. Update the system through the update menu and try it again. Repost if you have further issues.

PS3, horizontal lines during Blu-ray playback


You can purchase a lens cleaning disk but it's a long shot. It's more likely that you have a bad video chip in your PS3.

My ps3 wont load any of my games but still plays my dvds


First off, have you tried playing Blu-Ray movies/games instead of DVD's?
If you have and only the DVD's work then it sounds like the "blu ray" part of the drive has died.

In the PS3 blu ray drive there is a lens for blu ray movies/games and a seperate one for dvd/cd's. Sounds like the blu ray lens one broke.
The cost for repair of this $150 dollars if not under warranty.
Now before calling sony try this.
  1. Update your firmware (if you aren't running the latest already). Yup, this overwrites some of system software that may have been corrupted.

  2. First, back up your game saves, and any music you have on your HDD. Format the PS3! Yup, again this fixes corrupted files on the HDD by forcing the PS3 to rewrite them.

  3. Buy a Blu-Ray cleaner and try it.

Sadly if these don't work, you will need to give Sony a call, and have that coffin mailed your way.

My ps3 plays movies but wont recognize games


The PS3 uses a different laser for DVD's, Blu-Ray disks, and CD's. It's quite likely that just the Blu-ray diode has crapped out. have you upgraded to firmware 3.10

For the player to work perfectly the lens needs to be clean. One piece of dirt can cripple your PS3 and end up with your PS3 not playing games. This dirt needs to be cleaned off the lens occasionally to avoid you having ps3 problems loading games.

Try these steps to resolve this issue:

You could be facing a lens related issue or corrupted firmware problem

try this

1. Update your firmware (if you aren't running the latest already). Yup, this overwrites some of system software that may have been corrupted.

2. First, back up your game saves, and any music you have on your HDD. Format your PS3, this fixes corrupted files on the HDD by forcing the PS3 to rewrite them.

3. Try cleaning the blu-ray drive lens with a Blu Ray Lens Cleaner

if this does not help, i suggest should be send to Sony for repairs in case your PS3 is under warranty your replacement drive may be covered still you need to check with PS3 customer support, Laser replacement would cost you around $130.

Hope this helps, and please do rate my solution, Happy Holidays and Happy gaming ahead!

Can't play blue ray district 9 on ps3 , won't read disc


The solution is simple. The God of War 3 demo is a dual disc. When initially inserted, the ps3 will automatically go to the game tab. Scroll over to the video tab and go up. District 9 will play on your ps3! It will say "District 9 Blu-Ray!"

60gb ps3 wont play ps3 games


The issue is the laser (actually has different diodes for blu ray, ps2 format and regular DVD.
Seems like in your case the only one that is burnt is the blu ray.
Send it back to Sony for repairs or if you do not have warranty purchase a replacement lens and install it yourself.

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
