Many users also reported their PS3 won't play DVD or game disc, or can't eject out : The bluray drive need some fixes or replaced. If you send back to Sony or other people to repair, it's just waste your time and money - because the same symptoms will be back again. The best way is learning the repair skills of yourself.

I just bought an old 40gb Backwards compatible ps3 it powers on,I can go on line but it will not play any games or movies,It has a little disc looking thig spinning in the top right corner of the screen...


It could be a bad optics lens, or a bad main deck board. Another thing is, is that ony the 20gb, 60gb, and 80gb are backwards compatible. I would make the person whomevere you bought it from give your money back.

CAN YOU PLAY PS2 GAMES ON A PS3?


Only some models were able to play PS2 and PS1 games, these were early 20Gb, 60Gb and some 80Gb models. The 20Gb model number would of been CECHB**, the 60Gb model would of been CECHA** or CECHC** and the 80Gb model would of been CECHE**. Only these models are backwards compatible. The funcionality was removed from newer models and also the new PS3 slim model.

Hope this helps

My ps3 used to be backwards compatible for ps1-ps2 and ps3 now it only plays ps3.why?and how do i get it back?


is it the 60 gb model?? that is the only one that did backwards compatibility. all others dont. if u do have the old 60gb then maybe sony got rid of it on the firmware updates. go on the ps3 website and update an older firmware and see if that works.

My ps3 won't let me play ps2 games. is there anything that can be done?


Unfortunately, no. Sony built the PS3 to only play PS3 games, so no backwards compatibility. Maybe in the future though, they might release an update.

Will PS3 games play on PS2? Thank you


most ps3's unfortunately arent backwards compatible, however the 60gb consoles were made to be so. otherwise they can have chips put in them by people while being semi-legal is cheap and works well. so either have the 60gb console, or get a shark chip from your local supplier.
