Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console

1 Answer

I have a playstation 3 console 80 GB, almost 3 years old.... was working excellent. But yesterday started with a problem, doesn't want to read and play either PS3 games or BluRay movies. But still reading and playing PS2 games, DVD movies and CD's music. What could be the problem?

I am having the same exact issue myself. Starting a month or two ago, it got harder and harder to get PS3 games to play. Now it plays anything that is not blu-ray based. I would be very interested in hearing how you are able to fix the problem.

Our playstation 3 won't read games but will play regular DVD's and CD's


I have the same problem. My games freeze after 5 minutes. Same with blue rays but dvds play fine. I have reformatted the hard drive and formatted the file system. Nothing has worked. Hearing through multiple sources the blue ray laser is going out or the latest firmware update could be causing this. Hard to know for sure ... major disappoint. I have the 80 gig. 2 years old just starting doing this three days ago. Any other suggestions?

Games will not load


Phone sony, there numbers in warranty book. If its under a year old they will fix it free of charge, if not its gonna cost you. Thousands of people are having this problem, i'm onto my 6th ps3 now, but because ive had each one less than 3 mths they keep replacing it with another one and another 3 months warranty, On the last one i got they didn't have a 60 gb one so they just replaced it with a 80 gb one.
