My ps3 will play dvds and ps2 games but wont play ps3 games or blueray dvds
Hi, the problem you are having is with the bluray part of the dvd drive the only way of getting this sorted will be to replace the whole dvd drive, first check if you have any warranty before you let anyone do any work on it if you have warranty then you should be covered, check on the ps3 site about how much warranty sony offer from new.
if you have no warranty left then you need to find someone who knows how and what to do, their are several different dvd drives for the ps3 so this will need checking before you buy a new dvd drive, then once you have got the right drive its not just a case of taking the old out and putting the new in what you need to do is take the main circuit board off your old drive and swap this with the one on the new drive. the reason you have to do this is when the ps3 was put together the dvd drive and the main circuit board in the ps3 where married, ie these parts were joined together with software now as sony have done this you cant just change the whole dvd drive over as the new one wont be recognised by your ps3 as it will have the firmware of another ps3 serial number so you need to change the circuit board off the bottom of your dvd drive and swap this onto the new dvd drive, than when you fit the drive your ps3 will think its the old drive and it will then be working.
its not easy to do and its difficult just to take the ps3 apart so be warned.
let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance
