My ps3 plays games fine and up until recently DVD's also, now it recognises the DVD's but when I go to play it, the screen goes blank and I have to turn off my station in order to start it up...


Over time, the reading laser in most consumer electronics can begin to slip out of alignment. This could cause the issue you are seeing. Firstly, insure that this issue occurs with all DVDs and not merely a few. This will allow you to be sure the issue is with your PS3 and not a scratched or poorly encoded disc.

If it does indeed occur with all DVDs, you may wish to try connecting the PS3 with a different video cable (i,e. switch from HDMI to RCA or vice versa) to insure it's not a copy protection glitch.

There are also several options in the Video Playback section of the PS3's Settings menu that can cause odd effects when playing discs. Insure that all upscalling is disabled, and that the proper video output format is selected. Experiment with the options and try again.

Lastly, if all of this fails, you may need to return to PS3 to Sony for repair. Some sites will tell you that running the PS3 upside down can cause discs to play properly, but I do not recommend attempting this, since the PS3's unique shape makes it especially susceptible to bumps which could cause further damage.

My ps3 wont play the game automatically when a disc is inserted. it goes to a multimedia menu when it comes on


Typically ps3s do not launch straight into the game. You do have to go through the menu and select the games portion, and then the game disc. This should launch your game. I have to do it every time I want to play a game.

The game doesn't start.


Check your settings to see if the auto start feature is turned on or not. Also, how long have you let the player continue to attempt to read the disc, maybe try waiting a little longer if you haven't already. Sometimes the Playstation takes a while to load and read disc's. Hope you find this of some help, I hope that it's not an issue where you need to replace the disc drive itself. Try setting it to auto start the disc and see if that helps first. If this doesn't help right me back and I will try to assist you further.

My ps3 won't load any games


You can take a can of air and blow it into the drive. There could be dust or dirt on the laser.

If that doesn't work then its either going to be a bad laser in the dvd drive or main board inside of the dvd drive that is bad. You can order replacement lasers for your ps3 dvd drive on Ebay or you can replace the whole drive as well and find those on Ebay.

Discs wont read on ps3.


Question: does it play blueray movies? Mine did this, but would still play movies. I found a "Corrupted Data" file in my Games/data folder, and ended up doing a quick restore, under ths System menu. I now have no problems in this area...games start properly every time. You will lose all your saves and any dowloaded content, so back up if you can.

If your PS3 is not reading disc, but can play demos, music, etc. You need to replace your PS3's lens.
