It can be 1 of 2 things. 1) either u need a dvd cleaner disc that will clean your ps3 lazer for you or 2) your ps3 system and/or game disc is defected.

SOURCE: playstation 3 doesn't read discs

while you were playing a game or watching a film, if you move the console while there is a game in there and the console is on, then it corrupts the harddrive thats what happened to me but if it is switched off and you move it then it does not matter nothing will happen but just type in ps3 repair in google and click on the first one and the company will fix it for you for £80 and you will have to pay extra £10 to them for when they send it back and it will propably cost you another £20 to send to them in the first place. but if you send it off to sony it will cost quite a lot as you will have to send it to america and there is a chance of it getting lost or damaged in the post.

SOURCE: 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 =/

MY PLAYSTATION3 WONT READ GAMES N I HAV ANOTHER THAT HAS THE RED RING


The Blu Ray Laser is wearing out. This is a common issue among the newer video game consoles. The laser is constantly lighting up to read the discs while you are playing your Playstation 3 whether you are playing games, Blu Ray movies, or DVD movies. Eventually the laser will burn out. As it starts to wear out, first the games or movies will freeze. After a while, it will not read Blu Ray at all. Finally it will quit reading anything. You can find lasers at the following website starting at $49.95. The same website also performs repairs of the Playstation 3 console:

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.

Will playstation 3 play blu ray movies off usb memory stick? all other movies worked but blu ray one didn't work.


the PlayStation 3 can read just about any usb memory stick and play can movies from them, since a usb's bandwidth is significantly lower then the ps3 hard drive it's recommend to copy the movie to the ps3's hard drive.

also it matters how the movie was converted. some converted movies wont play on the ps3 no matter what codec your using to encode the movie with.
