Base from the description of your problem this can be a an issue with the lens of your PS3 since it wont read disc at all, what you can do first here is to use a lens cleaner that you can get from any electronic store and run it to your PS3 to clean the lens that may have some dirt on it. Then after doing that and still same problem the lens will need replacement already. Have it check or replace from a Sony service center.

Ps3 player wont play blueray discs says needs up date


I don't believe there is an update that will make the Blueray stop reading, or start working. Your disk drive might be bad and needs to be replaced.

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...

Won't play a blue ray disc


The blueray eye is out. You will need a new blueray player. The only problem with that is the ps3 will only respond with the orginal parts it came with. ( i.e. motherboard blueray player ) So the best bet is to buy a broken blueray player and take the eye out and replace it with yours just the eye not the whole thing.

I have had my ps3 80gb for a couple of years now but have never tried to play a blueray disc untill today. An on screen message states that I must renew the encryption key. Perform a system software update...


You will not be able to play some newer disc because of the technology embedded in them. The updates allow for those necessary files to be implemented into your system giving it the ability to play games and blu rays. Get your system updated.

Download the firmware from the playstation official website onto a usb

stick. Follow the instructions on the website at: www.playstation.com (the update will be at the bottom of the page, on the right side.)

My ps3 will not read any ps3 disk but it will read movies whats wrong?


I would see if it reads blueray MOVIES, if not it could be a problem with the blueray reader. In that case I would see if you can locate one of those cleaning discs with a brush on it to clean the laser or contact sony to see if your console is under warranty.

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.

The Playstation 3 will not read any discs. It barely moves the disc inside. All software and internet are working perfectly. Even when I formatted the PS3, it still wouldn't read anything. I have a 40GB...


Your blue ray lens needs either cleaning or replacing, maxwell as brought out a blueray lens cleaner disc recommended for even ps3 consoles. If that doesn't work though you have to send it to sony or approved sony repairs centres. Search on google for ps3 repair centres near your area.
