Ps3 plays videos but not games


Before doing anything else, you should run a lens cleaning disk for dvds through ps3.

Also, im willing to bet it will play ps2 games, since they run on a different format then ps3 ...

If you can read ps2 games, then you dont need to replace the drive unit. If after running the lens cleaner, you still cant play ps3, or ps2 games..

Then you may need to replace the drive unit

Discs wont load


Your laser is going out.

It has nothing to do with the system.

You'll have to replace the blu-ray laser in order to have a 100% working machine again.
