My PS3 will not load games, movies or Blue Ray discs. Usually when a disk is put in, the orange light will blink for loading, but this does not happen. What do I do?

Yo!

You might not actually need to spend any money on a PS3 repair guide at all- instead you will need to purchase a new Blu Ray drive (or laser lens itself and simply replace the lens) But even before you do that try the following things:

  • Clean your game disks
  • Clean your Blu Ray drive (get one of those laser lens cleaning kits on eBay or Amazon)
If that doesn't work then I've got a free step-by-step PS3 repair guide that will show you with video and text instructions how to replace the Blu-Ray drive yourself. Its all online so you don't need to download anything either

PS3 won't accept certain disks. A few disks i have won't play in my ps3. it happens to both blu-ray movies and games, and it seems to only happen with blu ray disks. i'll put the disk in, and...


Hello
The noise is actually a product of dust from a blue ray disc.Over time these discs heat up and leave a residue on the blue ray lens.
Try using a lens cleaner to remove dirt and clean lens.
Also i read an article that using a wireless controler can also cause freezing of the blue ray.

My ps3 iant reading games or blu ray discs how can i fix this myself?


I've been told that Blue Ray movies don't work on PS3 unless you use an HDMI cable; but I haven't tested that. Also, some Blue-ray on PS3 load as movies, some load as games depending on the content. So check the automatic play feature, see if you can select the BD from the video section. On your Xross media bar, go to videos and see if there is a blue disc (BD-rom), click X.

Also make sure that the movie is actually blue-ray. Some old HD movies are sold off on eBay, etc as Blue ray when they aren't. Check it on Blueray.com, if the movie isn't listed it may be HD only.

My ps3 wont play blu ray movies or games but cds and dvds work fine


The Blu Ray Diode fried when you shut the power switch on in the back. The PS3 uses 2 different lasers to read disks. One for standard dvd's and cd's and one for Blu Ray. The only way to fix your PS3 is to replace the Blue Ray Diode or laser lens. I would recommend paying the $150 bucks to have sony replace unless you know something about Diodes and lasers.
If you hold down the eject button for 10 seconds it will reset your laser and then you should be able to shut the power down in back safetly.
Formatting and or resetting the hard drive won't do a thing if your diode is fried.
I found a work-around to get it to read discs though. You have to have a bluray disc in the drive (game or movie) and start a downloaded game or Playstation Home. Once the game or Home loads, hit the PS button on the controller. The crossbar menu will pull up and you will notice the disc icon will (magically) pop up. Click the quit game icon. Once you are out of the downloaded game or Home the disc icon will still be there. You can then load the game or disc. The icon will remain there until you eject the disc, so you will have to repeat this every time you want to load a game.

Check What Resolution You Have Saved On the PS3 Maybe When It goes Blu-Ray Its To High Res For The Standard TV..
if you felt i have spent my time to help you... a very helpful rating is appreciated for answering ur query...

My ps3 wont read blue ray discs


I had the same issue with my 60GB model, but I did not open up the case. Sony will fix your PS3 (no matter the warranty) for $150.

To me, I would rather spend $150 by getting the blu-ray drive replaced than a whole new system.

It's actually a very fast turnaround time. They send you a box which most people call the "coffin", you put your ps3 inside and take it to the post office. Pretty quick and painless from my experience.

My ps3 will not play blue ray or my games.


the blue ray laser has two high energy beams at 450nm(bluelight) and 730nm (redlight). the highpower diode on your machine im afraid has failed (due to the extreme heat conditions in ur PS3). you need to install a new laser ..only 100 i charge or 160 from sony (150+TAX 2 week wait)
Now if you have the newer model laser KES410ACA, then you have 2 SEPARATE light sources...these tend not to fail as often
