Hi try putting in a normal dvd thats not blu ray and see if it then works also try a music cd if it will then play them with no problems then this means you need to get a new blueray drive and if this is the case check if you have any warranty left or go to the ps3 official web site to find out as this fault is covered by warranty.

if your warranty has run out then you will need to find someone who can fit it for you as its not a very easy job to do yourself

if you need further assistance let me know ok

plz rate this solution as i have a whole page of unrated posts, thanks

PS3 READING DVD'S + CD'S BUT NOT GAMES WHATS UP ?


Hello,

To start the laser reads disc's differently. A CD or DVD is just your typical disc then you have blueray which your games are burned onto a blueray disc. Your optical lens is damaged and likely unable to read blueray format.

If you have a blueray movie or can borrow one, try it and see if it still plays that will determine if that is the problem.

If so you will have to replace the optical lens,

Note: Opening your PS3 will void your warranty, so if you are still covered, it is best to send it in to Sony for repair.

Good news is it is easy to do and there are many free step by step tutorials with pictures or videos to show you how. If you must do it yourself.

1 Discs that are not compatible with the system cannot be played. 2 Games that can be played on this system have to be on PLAYSTATION3 format software. Playstations format software canbe played but may not perform correctly. Please check if the games you wish to play are on this format. 3 Please check if the data for PS3 format software is saved on the system's hard disk. The data is displayed under Game - Saved data utility

Ps3 plays dvd but games don't load. Games do not even register as in the cd drive.


Please check if the games you want to play are on PLAYSTATION3 format. If not then they will not be played. Otherwise when you insert the disc the games start automatically

My playstation3 is nor reading game cd.it's


Well you seem to have the same problem i had, you updated your ps3 and now it wont read any blueray at all....

you probaly wont like what im about to say.....

but there is 2 options....

1. If you still have warrenty left on your machine, then use it now. (go down to the shop where you bought it and have it replaced or send to service.)

2. If no warrenty, well then you still have 2 options, but these cost money.

2.1. You can still send it to service at any store that sells ps3, but they will charge you a fee. (about 150$)

2.2. Or you can find a blueray lens and then replace it your self, its an easy task and can be done in about 1½ for one that never opened a ps3. you can find tutorials on youtube how to replace it.
( it does require that you know how to handle a screwdriver )

A new lens will fix this problem, i had it myself and just replaced my lens with a new, and now it works again.

My playstation 3 is not reading my games & blueray disc


It needs a new laser because the old one is "burnt out". It's a really common problem with them.

You could send it to Sony, but they take a long time to repair it and charge $150 USD plus shipping and handling.

You could also replace the laser yourself.

I buy mine at http://parts.consolerepairguy.com they run about $75 each.

I run a repair business and that place has best prices aside from Hong Kong which I don't trust.
