I suggest you have corrupt firmware within your PS3, and that your re-download and install the latest updates for your device.

Might I add that you should backup and important documents and data you have before performing this action.

Also, it takes around 2 hours to complete, and if this process is interrupted in anyway - your PS3 will be 100% unusable, and you will certainly have to return it to the manufacturer.

Regards,

Erik.

My console works and lets me play online games but it wont let me play disk games how can i fix this


Your Blu-ray drive has gone bad most likely. Try inserting a blu-ray movie to double check. Also, try to play a music cd or a dvd. I usually see that cd's and dvds will play but the BR movies and games will not.If your concole is less that 1 year old, contact sony for a warranty repair. If it is older than 1 year, they will repair it for a cost.

Playstation 3 (PS3) Console: hi, my playstation 3 wont play dvds or video games...


IF YOU HAVE WARRANTY SEND IT TO SONY!
You can try powering on to your "diagnostic screen", (there are videos online to show you how) and try restoring your file system. If this does not work, listen to the area that you insert your disk while inserting. if it sound like it is spinning, then you may have a dirty lens. If it is making a "studdering noise" then your Bluray laser is bad and needs to be replaced. The part is about $50.00 on ebay on not hard to do.

This should tell you how to determine the laser model that you need. Your model number is on teh back left and starts with CECH

My playstation3 plays blu ray and reg movies but wont play games


please try:
  • Reinstalling all your game data files
  • Reupdating your system firmware via USB Device (download the update from Playstation Website)
  • Restoring your system (don't forget to backup all your important files !!)
else, contact the support centre for possible hardware issues checking . it can be, unfortunatelly, a problem with your bd reader, and you will need to buy a new one if the system is not covered by warranty =/

Clean the lens. Its possibly dirt on the len which is stopping the lasor from reading discs.

Playstation 3 wont read some cds or play downloaded demos.


I'm also having this problem as well, it has to do with the OS and it is corrupted. It seems like the "Game mode" has been corrupted preventing us from playing games on the hard drive or reading games.
