Sounds like a faulty/dirty/bad laser. Call sony 1-800-345-SONY (7669)
ask them what they can do! Normally its at least 168$ charge to get your ps3 back in order unless you are willing to open it up yourself.. if so let me know I can help you find parts and help you fix it.. parts are not to expensive but in the long run it may be better to either sell it as broke or send it in!

I do buy broken ps3's and can get you a deal on used or new systems!

My PS3 can't only PS2 games!!! 80028F17


Not all PS3s are able to play PS2 games - they started removing that functionality when they came out with the 60GB model. So if you have a relatively new PS3 (A year old or so), that's likely the reason.

DVD play on my 60gb PS3 but games wont!


It's a Sony defect with the blu-ray lasers. They only last 1-3 years with average use. If your PS3 is less than a year old and you still have the original receipt Sony will repair the problem for free. Otherwise they're going to charge you $150 for the repair. You can reach them at: 1-800-345-SONY

Unless you have a technical background in electronics there's nothing I would suggest doing. A firmware update and or CD /DVD cleaner disk will do nothing for your problem. I've fixed more than 100 PS3's with this exact problem so I know exactly what I'm talking about.

Can i play burnt ps3 games on the ps3 60gb


100% NO.

PS3 has not been hacked yet.

You can play burnt PS2 games but the process requires the purchase of some special software cds in order for you to run them, as of now, it's not worth the time and effort just to play games you could probably get for $10 and less.

It will probably take another year before the PS3 is publicly hacked.

60gb ps3 wont play ps3 games


The issue is the laser (actually has different diodes for blu ray, ps2 format and regular DVD.
Seems like in your case the only one that is burnt is the blu ray.
Send it back to Sony for repairs or if you do not have warranty purchase a replacement lens and install it yourself.
