Wow this is bizarre, you say the blu-ray drive works in one system, but not another? And you have used the data cable from the system it worked from and put it in the non working one and it still doesn't work? Have you tried the board and the data cable from the working system in the non working one? If at that point it still doesn't work, it has to be some power issue, there is no other possibility even, since at that point it is practically a whole new / different machine...

Doesn't make much sense, please verify that. The video problem on the second system sounds like a bad board as well... have you tried a whole new board in that one?

With respect to your blu ray problem it sounds like the actual blu ray controller on the PS3 motherboard has gone. This could be just coincidence or it could of been a result of the re-flow. If the drive works in another PS3 and you have used all working parts in the re-flowed PS3 and it does not work then I am sure it is the motherboard that is at fault, there is nothing else it can be.

As to the other PS3 you re-flowed, I have heard of this problem before where there is no video after the re-flow process has been carried out. Again it is possible that the RSX display chip has been damaged but just try one thing before you decide to call it a day.

Turn the PS3 off into standby (red light on)
Press and hold the power button for two beeps (the first will be as soon as you press it)
Release the power button as soon as you hear the second beep.
This will force the PS3 to reinitialize the display and hopefully bring it back to life. If it does not work then something is damaged on the motherboard to do with either the image processor or the main RSX display chip

I hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa

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 the yellow light of death. How do I get the game out of the machine ?

Flux and reflow the motherboard if you do this the PS3 will work again or take the blue-ray deck out and plug it into another PS3 or take the blue-ray deck apart.

The 3 ways of getting your game out. NOTE: If you do #2 you will still have to flux and reflow the motherboard to reset the blue-ray drive.

1. Is to strip your system down to the motherboard so you can flux and reflow the board.

2. Is to open the blue-ray drive and take it out.

PS3 Blueray drive,, Both blue and red LED's work, but it will not read a blueray disk, At first it spins fine and looks good,, but then the disk slows down and the eye jumps back down, at this piont it...


If this solution am providing you now did not solve the problem, i will advice you format or get a new drive.

Make sure PS3 is connected via correct cable.
Power Off the PS3 via the power switch in back and power back on with switch. Hold Power Button on the Front until you hear 3 beeps. Your ps3 should automatically reset.

Take care.

My ps3 iant reading games or blu ray discs how can i fix this myself?

I've been told that Blue Ray movies don't work on PS3 unless you use an HDMI cable; but I haven't tested that. Also, some Blue-ray on PS3 load as movies, some load as games depending on the content. So check the automatic play feature, see if you can select the BD from the video section. On your Xross media bar, go to videos and see if there is a blue disc (BD-rom), click X.

Also make sure that the movie is actually blue-ray. Some old HD movies are sold off on eBay, etc as Blue ray when they aren't. Check it on, if the movie isn't listed it may be HD only.

Bought a blue ray movie to try out on ps3 now it asks for an encryption key, wth? i don't hook my ps3 to inter net, but asking for a system software update to renew encryption key to play blue ray

-= Renew PS3 Encryption Key =-

If i was you i wouden update. the latest update sony have provided is causing alot of problems, such as not being able to read blue-ray movies and games. (3.00/3.01)

I know you dont see it this way, but i acaully see you as a very lucky person that you havent updated your machine yet, my ps3 dont work anymore after i updated, or it does work, but it just cant read any blueray games or movies.

But if you have a ps3 slim you probaly wont have this problem, its more older models that suffer under this bug. :(

i dont know what your current firmware is, but if its way below 2.80, then your still in the safe zone, cuz if you own a usb memory stick you can transfer the 2.80 update to ( USB-ROOT\PS3\UPDATE\PS3UPDAT.PUP ) and then unplug it from your computer and insert it into your ps3 and then try the update from local storeage.

i hope you can use this :o)

My ps3 is playing ps2 games but not ps3 games

Your blueray is broken,

you can try and do a system restore which will reset everything like the first day your turned it on just
go to -- system settings/system restore/format hardrive-- also be sure you backup your filessystem restore eg. your game saves.

If that doesn't work you'll have to call sony and send it in for repairs 1-800-345-SONY to receive repair/replacement they will send you a box to send your ps3 in. Its free if your still under warrenty but since your ps3 is playing ps2 games most likely your warrenty is gone. So it will cost you 150 bucks.

I hope the system repair works for you, it has for a few people.
