Sounds like a blu-ray drive problem. Your best option is to call Sony support. They'll tell you if its something you can fix, or if you should send it to them for a repair. most likely you'll have to get it repaired.

My ps3 will not read my games , but it will read dvd's


Blu-rays utilise a blue laser within the drive and DVDs use a red laser.
Sounds like the blu-ray/games reading blue laser has died and it'll need replacing.

My playstation loads dvds and playstation 2 games but when i put a playsation 3 game in the game disc icon doesnt show so i cant click it to start my game


Try different ps3 games and if your system doesn't load any of them then that means the laser is bad and would need to be replaced. You can also just replace the dvd drive as well and you buy either the laser or the whole drive off of Ebay.

Hello my sons ps3 has stopped loading games,


I have seen lasers burn out shortly after 1 year. They are available online for purchase. It would be the laser for sure if the system starts up fine, disks go into and out of the console and if there is an icon in top right of screen like it is trying to read. I have fixed a few but laser replacement usually cost $150. Good Luck

My ps3 won't load any games


You can take a can of air and blow it into the drive. There could be dust or dirt on the laser.

If that doesn't work then its either going to be a bad laser in the dvd drive or main board inside of the dvd drive that is bad. You can order replacement lasers for your ps3 dvd drive on Ebay or you can replace the whole drive as well and find those on Ebay.

My ps3 doesnt read games


your laser had stopped reading games and most likely bluray movies also sometimes they still read regular dvd's and music cd's sometimes non of then but I can guaranty is your laser you need to know what model you have because there is 2 different types of lasers for ps3 and you can install the laser your self or have someone do it for you we are a ps3 specialist we carry all major ps3 parts and accessories but if you can find somebody locally is better for you

PS3 wont load or play games, Just a blank screen.....


Try playing a Demo game, if you dont have any download it from playstation network. The point is just to force the sytem to play games and if you notice, movies and games are listed under a different folder in the icon's list, so playing a demo game will force the system to play the game and you should be able to play your games fine after that,. Thing is that a game's info might've got stuck in freeze mode when the system was shut off unproperly while a game disk was still inside, that's all. Good luck, dont wanna see any PS3 comrades suffering the unspeakable horridness of not been able to play games. Be strong my friend.
