The ps3 blu-ray laser is a 3 part system (cd, dvd, and blu-ray) More than likely the dvd portion of the laser is damaged.

I'd recommend using the ps3 to play games / blu-rays until the laser completely fails before replacing.

Here's a website with some tips and advice.

My ps3 can play dvds but no games how to fix


You see to play DVD's & CD's all the information is on them while the game gets loaded into the PS3 Hard Disk Drive (HDD) which if yours is not large enough for the new games say 80 GB then they will not work or if your PS3 HDD is bad. If the problem is the later (Bad) inotherwords same games you always used don't work, then I suggest company below for drive replacement and or upgrade. Since you like I, are tired of feeding Sony, find link below for more reasonable price

PS3 isn't reading games/blu-ray/ or DVD discs, only audio CD's?


this is a symptom of blue ray lens failure (BDL)

if you are still under warranty, I suggest have the unit or BD (drive) replaced.

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.

American DVDs unable to play for my PS3


At this time the region lock on ps3 only includes DVD and ps1-2 titles. Although some games will have the 80028F10 error. Most ps3 and blue ray will play without problems, my only suggestion being that if you are in the US, make sure you get a US ps3.

hope this helps.
