Hello,

I will advice you clean the lens of your ps3 player, cleaning the lens of the ps3 player will make the ps3 player read the disc, if the problem is not solve after cleaning the lens, it means, you will need to replace the lens on your ps3, the lens might be weak that it can no longer read any disc or play any game. the two options above should fix the problem of your ps3.

Take care.

the games you are trying to play are not the same region as your console.go through your console manual and you would see the region code it is able to play and cros0chec if it matched the region number on the disc.

When I start loading a game or video the playstation sayds video or game can not be played (error 8002997F)


Hi,

This error is related to an issue reading the BluRay Disc, you might try the following:

  1. Ensure that the latest system software update is installed on your PlayStation 3 system.
  2. Check the disc for scratches and dirt.
  3. Check that the disc is compatible with your PlayStation 3 system.
  4. Make sure that this is not only happening with one specific game, if so, the disc might be the issue.
  5. Try the disc in another PS3 system if you have one available to discard the possibility of a faulty disc.
Hope this helps.

PS3 - Unable to read disc


Hi,

Follow these steps when you are facing "disc wont read" problem


Step 1:Remove the disc from the system.


Step 2:Use a cloth to clean in small circles around the disc (not in a big circle going around the disc). Use DVD or CD disc cleaner if available. If you use cleaner, use a different dry cloth to clean the disc no more than three minutes after application.


Step 3:Verify that there are no disc-destroying marks on the disc. Deep scratches and chips in the middle of the disc can render a disc inoperable.As your Playstation 3 is used more and more, the lens that reads Blue-ray discs can become dirty. This will lead to discs skipping or not being read by the console. If you find this is happening on your Blue-ray discs, either movies or games, you may need to have your console cleaned. Be careful when attempting any sort of cleaning of your console, as improper handling will further damage the Playstation 3. Contact a member of Playstation Support for information on console maintenance.


Thank you !!

My set of 3 games will not work, disc read error


I had the same problem with a pinball game I brought. If you have one of the old playstation 2's and these games you have a blue-back on them I noticed after so long they stop playing games with blue-back discs. All other games with out these blue-back discs will play just fine but if you have a new playstation 2 and these games are not playing on there then u need to call playstation and tell them the problem you are having and see what they tell you. Let me know if this helps you Good Luck!

Playstation 3 wont read some cds or play downloaded demos.


I'm also having this problem as well, it has to do with the OS and it is corrupted. It seems like the "Game mode" has been corrupted preventing us from playing games on the hard drive or reading games.
