Some time when that happens the system configuration is wrong reset the configuration to game play on. That should let you play Movies and game.But!, make sure you remove the disk.

Why wont my PS3 play any blueray games or movies?


Try using a lens cleaning disc. If that doesn't help your PS3's disc drive is probably dying. Time to call Sony support...

Tip

"If a audio disc plays but not dvd,blueray, or game disc you got a bad laser."...


Have you had your Ps3 drive tell you its just will not read?

Here are some major causes:

1. Dirty drive.
2. Motor not spinning the disc fast enough.
3. Bad optical laser.

Step 1

Listen for the drive does it spin up?
Listen for the read head.
Put a audio disc in does it play?

If a audio disc plays but not dvd,blueray, or game disc you got a bad laser.

I recommend you do the following:

1. Make sure you match up you serial number on your unit.
2. Purchase the whole kit not just the laser.

The kit looks like this:


ae2a243.jpgThe cost of these drives are from $50 to $120 respectively. I do not suggest Ebay I would suggest a Store that sales these with warranty intact. Do not get fouled by ebay scams.

Thanks for reading my tips. Please do leave a positive rating. Thanks for using fixya.com.

My ps3 wont play any of my games, for christmas i got the knew need for speed hot pursuit played it that night and ever since it would not play it nor would it play anyother of my old games, it would only...


Ok your laser is bad. You need to replace it. Your laser has a blu ray diode which lights up blue and reads ps3 games and blu ray games. Then it has a red diode which plays ps2 games dvds cds ps1 games. Your blu ray diode is burned up. You will have to replace the laser its pretty simple.

Playstation will play ps2 games movies an cds but wont play my ps3 games


Hey Ron,

What happens you put a ps3 disc in the drive? Does it not register at all? Does it read BLUERAY movies because if so it should read games as well.

PS3 READING DVD'S + CD'S BUT NOT GAMES WHATS UP ?


Hello,

To start the laser reads disc's differently. A CD or DVD is just your typical disc then you have blueray which your games are burned onto a blueray disc. Your optical lens is damaged and likely unable to read blueray format.

If you have a blueray movie or can borrow one, try it and see if it still plays that will determine if that is the problem.

If so you will have to replace the optical lens,

Note: Opening your PS3 will void your warranty, so if you are still covered, it is best to send it in to Sony for repair.

Good news is it is easy to do and there are many free step by step tutorials with pictures or videos to show you how. If you must do it yourself.

How can i get my ps3 to play ps2 games


thats because sony was *** and stopped making ps3's that could read ps2 discs. so in other words you cant. the said "they didnt see it was fit for it to have to play games." a load of **** i say! they were just losing money for having a blueray, dvd, and ps2 reading machine. so they decided to take out ps2 and not dvd? i dont get it cause we can rip dvd's to play as a video file, and then play it from that. sony doesnt think right i dont think, sorry. but you are out of luck

PS3 not recognizing any disc


See if a DVD works. For me, I know my Bluray is ruined because I can watch DVDs and play PS2 games fine but anything Bluray does not work. If a DVD does not work, you have more of a problem, if DVD does work you need a new BlueRay which Sony should take care of for you. If you don't have receipt, etc. like me you can buy a new Bluray (KES-400AAA) on Ebay and use this guide to install it http://edpsystemssupport.com/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=29&Itemid=45.
Hope that helps.
