Check the 24 Hz setting in the BD/Blu-ray setting area. Some televisions do not support this option. Turn it off. It will prevent blu-ray movies from playing.

Friend's PS3 had the same problem. His unit is no longer under Sony's warranty so I've recently fixed his by buying a replacement laser lens from Ebay. It roughly cost about 50-65 US dollars, depending on whether you order the lens only or one with a deck; you will need to replace the old one with the new one. However if your unit is till under Sony's warranty, i suggest sending it back to them for repairs.

    Before you go ahead and buy a replacement lens, I would first suggest
    you call Sony and have them troubleshoot the problem for you. It could
    solve your problems and save yourself money if they are able to help
    you fix it over the phone.

My ps3 slim won't play games and blue ray disk but I can still play eve movies on it, please help want to try an fix if before nhl 12 hits the stores.


Hi, It sounds like there's an error with the laser that reads blu ray media as PS3 games and blu ray movies are both stored on blu ray disks which is read by a different type of laser then a dvd is read by. There's nothing you could do to fix that on your own, the only fix I've heard of is sending it in to Sony.

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:

PS3 doesn't recognize Games or Blue-Ray Movies


Laser needs to be replaced. 95% of the time.

You can try: updating firmware
restoring system, and cleaning the laser lens with a q-tip

It almost never works, but you can try.
