The region code on the blu-ray disc may not match the region code of the PS3. In this case it will not play that disc.

No disk means that the BR disk is not recognized as present . Don't push play, open Computer instead and see what the disk is labeled: if it appears as a DVD-RAM, you have to install a new BR player unit - the optical unit itself. If the disk appears with its name then the software player you were trying to use works only for dvd's, you need a BR one and the correct codec. You can get both from here

Look at the back of the box to see it says it is a region one or multi-region disk. Then I would try to play it in another PS3 to see if it will work.

What it sound like even through they put region 1 on the box the disk may be actually a multi-region disk so that the manufacture can press the same disk more.

The problem with this is the PS3 it set to play region 1 only disk. I had not seen this will Blu-ray disks yet but I have alot of DVD Anime titles that say region 1 on the box but the disk is actually multi-regioned.

Note if you are not in region 1 (US) then the same thing would apply to you home region.

Let me know if you have any more problems or questions

When i updated my PS3 for the new Call of Duty it stopped reading the disks. It worked fine b4 the upload but now it wont play any of d games i have. Whats d craic, how do i sort this


It might just be coincidence that your blu-ray drive has packed up at the same time as the update. Ring up Sony and tell them this and you could get a new console for free if your in the warranty.

I have bought several American Blue Ray disks from Amazon but they won't play on my PS3. Any Ideas on how to unlock the disks so they will play on PS3 or have i just wasted rather a lot of money? Help...


If you have bought Blu-Rays from the wrong region, you have wasted your money. There is no way to use a blu-ray disc from another region on your PS3. Next time, try to get region-free Blu-Ray discs.

Ps3 freezing,not reading new discs


Hi!

First of all, try playing all of your games and see if its just one disk or your ps3, following that I would say you put in a blu-ray movie and check if that works. If it doesn't, get a USB memory stick and save all your important data. After that, reset your system settings.

You can do that by:

Settings> System Settings> Restore System Settings

After that try it and if it doesn't work, go again to system settings but this time around, go to restore ps3 system.

You can do that by:

Settings> Sysem Settings> Restore PS3 System.

It should be noted that all of your stuff will be deleted, so I hope you saved all of your game saves on that usb flash disk.

If it doesnt work then do the following:

call sony:

Sunday 7:00 - AM 6:30 PM PST


Have fun!

Ps3 not recognising ps3 games and movies


Sounds like it could be failure of the Blu-ray drive. A friend of mine had the same issue.

Contact Sony support and if it's under warranty they will fix it free of charge (here in Australia they do anyway).

Ps3 disk reading error


Can you be any more specific? is this a problem with one disk, one type of disk or all disks? What is the exact error you are getting? Are you trying to play a game, play a film, play an audio CD or are you using your PS3 as a Linux computer and trying to open a data disk? have you tried more than one disk? Without specifics there's just no way to guess what the problem is.

Ps3 not reading any disks


Normally ps1-ps2-ps3 has Red laser beam lens system. So it cannot read Blue ray disks. its not possible until you change it lens system. there are some commericially available Blue laser lens system. Buy one and fix it with authorised service personnel. all the best
