Hello,

I would have limit the problem to the lens on your ps3 bluray, but since you said the red led works fine with DVD in the drive, this eliminate the lens from been the problem. I will suggest you try this, 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. If this did not solve the problem, get a new drive.

Take care.

    Try reformatting the console. If this will not fixed the issue then this could be a hardware problem (Lens problem).

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.

My ps3 will not read any ps3 disk but it will read movies whats wrong?


I would see if it reads blueray MOVIES, if not it could be a problem with the blueray reader. In that case I would see if you can locate one of those cleaning discs with a brush on it to clean the laser or contact sony to see if your console is under warranty.

Hello,

If this solution am providing you now did not solve the problem, i will advice you format or get a new drive.

Make sure PS3 is connected via correct cable.
Power Off the PS3 via the power switch in back and power back on with switch. Hold Power Button on the Front until you hear 3 beeps. Your ps3 should automatically reset.

Take care.

The system is no longer reading any disk. Has my driver gone out?


IIf the system will play regular cd's and regular movies(non blueray) the problem is the blueray portion of the laser assy. If it won't read anything, you probably have a bad laser assy all together. Either way, you will have to replace the whole laser carriage assy. I think they go for about $70 on ebay. Fairly technical fix if you want to do it yourself. If not, find a local PS3 repairman to perform the work. Good luck!

PS3 BLUERAY STOPED READING DISK AFTE 2.60 FIRM WARE IT JUST KEEP


  • Like the 360, the PS3 also has problems.  This problem is known as the SoD (spin of death). In this the lens of your PS3 stops working. Sony is the best one that can help for this kind of error. Best to stick with them, or if your retailer has an exchange policy, ask for a new PS3. But my local dealer fixes this up for 125$.  but as you're saying sony wil fix it up for $150. There is very little choice you have. all you can do is save 25$ and give it to ypour local dealer. best of luck.

Unit cannot read the DVD-ROM


First, reset the system. Hold down the power button (blue/green) on the front of the console for about 10 secs, until it beeps. This will reset your system, keeping all previous settings in tact.

If this does not work, be sure to test the drive with a BlueRay movie, listen to the drive when inserting a disk to hear if it spins up initially. If you have a downloaded game or demo, does it work. The more information you can bring to a problem the greater the chance to getting a fix.
