This is actually a really common problem and involves the laser inside your console. Your system actually has 2 seperate lasers (or a dual laser) inside it. One for DVD discs and one of Blu-Ray Discs. Your first step is to get a laser lens cleaner cd from a local computer repair shop or CD Music store. If this doesn't work, then your Blu-Ray laser might have gone out of alignment, or there is a large enough amount of dust on it that a laser lens cleaner won't work. At that point you will need to contact PlayStation about a repair :( Sorry

Looks like your Blu-Ray lens is dirty or dead. Try getting a laser lens cleaner and running it through your PS3 a few times. If this doesn't fix the problem, you will need to contact PlayStation and having it repaired.

Blue ray disc takes forever to load. Has currently been trying to load the disk for over 10 minutes. Have not yet got to a menu screen or anything.


that is a problem with your DVD Len, maybe the disc is all dirt or maybe it doesnt recognize the format, its a original dvd or a home maid copy?

My ps3 has just started to stop playing blu ray films after 20min


the laser is starting to go bad in the dvd drive. It takes more power for the drives laser to read and play a blu ray movie then it does to play a dvd game.

You can either replace the laser if you have the technical knowledge to take the dvd drive apart, or just replace the drive. You can usually find either one on ebay.

The 405 nm 10 mw blue violet laser gets whats called thermal kinks in the

PS3 Freezes with all blu-ray type discs.


You are Partially right.
Ps3 actually work with 2 different diode laser inside.one is Blue and one is red and both working on 2 separate circuit but with the same coil.i do believe the blue diode is dead or defective and that`s why you are able to read dvd(regular one) but no blu ray dvd or ps3 games.Try to clean your lens or replace your laser and you will resolve your problem
