My ps3 will no longer play ps3 games


If you are able to play Playstation 2 games, but not PS3 games then that means the blu ray laser has went bad. The lasers are a 2 part laser, The PS2 games take a lot less power to read than the blu ray or PS3 games, that is why you can still play PS2 games but not PS3s.
The lasers are a little bit pricy for these units, $60-$80 depending on which model laser is in your unit.
I recommend that you have a professional install the new laser in your unit because of the sensitive nature of the internal electronics.
One thing you don't want to do is damage the original blu ray drive mother board, the blu ray drive has Firmware on it that has to match the motherboard of the Ps3 unit or it will not play anything at all.
If you want me to replace the laser for you I can do that, just contact me and we can talk about it

Ps3 reads disk inserted but will not play it. games freeze while downloading them. (all) and blue ray movies when told to play come up with black screen and stays there. (frozen)


It sounds like your Blu-Ray drive is fragged.
Return it to Sony. If it is still under warranty, the repair will be free; otherwise, Sony will charge a flat $150 fee.

PS3 games play but DVD/Blu-ray will not


Sounds like a bad laser, but you should restore the PS3 back to Factory to see what happens.

If you get the same results it's definitely the laser.

Plays game but freezes on the cinematics


Corrupt game data.

You need to backup your saves and then restore the PS3 to factory default.

I'm assuming you know how to do this or can figure it out yourself. You sound like a capable gamer.

Let me know if you get stuck or have any other questions.

Playstation 3 Stopped Playing Blu Ray Discs and Games


It's a factory defect. I've fixed over 100 PS3's with the same exact problem. Your blu-ray laser went out. You need to contact Sony or if you're in Los Angeles you can contact me. I fix the problem for $120 and within 30 minutes. Sony charges $150+ and takes God knows how long.
