That's the number one problem that I see with the PS3. It's a Sony defect.

The ps3 will not play any games,but the power comes on


The most likely culprit is that your laser has failed. Usual symptoms are before complete failure usually hard to play and type of disk. Might play cds but not blu ray or may play cd but not dvd then one day nothing plays and the drive may not even spin up. Its a pretty simple fix for around $50 order the correct laser for your console and then its basically a simple process go to youtube and search ps3 laser fix and you will see many step by step videos that show how to do it.Just need a small tip phillips a larger phillips screw driver and a #10 torx head screw driver.Ebay has good deals on new lasers just make sure you get the one for your particualr model ps3 as there are 3 laser for different drives.Your console model will let you know usually starts like chech on sticker on the back of console

My sons ps3 will play games fine, but just started where it wouldnt play 1 move reg type not blue ray. then it wouldn play a couple of movies... playing some but not others, now wont play movies, but will...


depending which ps3 you have.
If you have the dual laser model one of the lasers could be damaged or require cleaning.
so the bluray side would work fine, whilst the reg side for reading dvds and cds could be damaged.
it might be worth buying a cd lens cleaner with the brushes and fluid and running it a few times in the ps3 this could work but you might be looking at the laser being replaced.
Hope this helps

My ps3 will still play movies but not games, what may b the prob?


You probably need a blu-ray drive. A blu-ray drive is essentially three parts, a CD type player, A DVD type player and a Blu-ray type player. Any one or combination can fail. DVD type games may work but not Blu-ray movies. Blu-ray games OK but not DVDs, etc. a blu-ray drive needs alignment so this is a sevice shop issue.

Ps3 wont read disc


First you need to verify that all types of discs won't read. there are 3 types that a ps3 will play CD, DVD and BluRay. If none of them work then your laser is either dirt and needs to be cleaned or is bad. If say dvd and cd works than the BluRay part of the lens needs to be calibrated which requires takign the system apart an voiding warranties.

My ps3 wont load ps3 games how do i fix it with out it costing me a fortune


Have you tried getting a DVD drive cleaning cd? (The type that has a small brush on the cd and as it plays in the drive these brushes clean the laser.

Usually you can pick them up for a supermarket. I have done this a few times and it has resolved this problem.

Thanks

PS3 will not play audio cds


Some audio cds have a coding on them for copy right, thats if you are terying to listen to an original cd. If you have a copy cd, sometimes the dye on the cd may not be compatable with your machine. Try and do a backup with a different make of blank cd.

Ps3 wil not play and cd's


try cleaning the lense with a cd cleaner available on any electronic needs store. the lense could have gathered a bit of dirt. don't try to touch it though.

another thing, if you observe very closely, does the player turns the cd whenever to place the cd for play? if so, what i've mentioned might be the most probable problem.
