Either 3 things could have happend.. the laser is off track which needs to be re-aligned, the blu ray drive is no longer good, or it just needs to be cleaned! Let me know what happens.. If you need a new drive they are 130$ish..
if the seal is in tact 167$ plus shipping to sony.. If you need one after you clean it(with a laser disc cleaner bought at the store) let me know I can give you instructions and the drive takes 10-15 min and your ready to go!

How do I reprogram my ps3 player to play blueray discs


your ps3 is a bluray player, there is no reprograming to do.

on the XMB (Cross Media Bar) once you insert a bluray or dvd movie, the icon on the video tab should change to that of the film

Discs not recognised


I think you are inserting the discs in the opposite way. actually the writing should be on the right side while inserting the dics while the wii is on its stand.

PS3 WONT PLAY ANYTHING - DISCS NOT RECOGNISED


i have had similar problems as well as multiple friends of mine. to solve this, you must call the playstation company and send your system in to be serviced. if you have purchased it within the last year and have proof, sony will fix it for free. if not, they will charge you $150 for their services. this is the only way to fix the problem

Playstation 3 not playing any games i insert into it


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

You could replace the laser or the entire Bluray drive.

I buy my parts at http://parts.consolerepairguy.com - the lasers are about $75 each and Bluray drives are about $100. (those are Canadian prices, ships to the US though)

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

Playstation 3 freezes


It sounds like either the BluRay drive is failing or the diode is simply dirty. Try running a CD/DVD lens cleaner and see if that fixes the problem. Make sure you are always cleaning the vents on the PS3, especially the one on the side. You could also try using a can of air to clean it.

If this doesn't work, I recommend you call and complain to Sony.

Ps3 game loading


unfortunately your bluray laser has probably failed. the diode burns out quickly on these older units. call sony they charge 150 or send it to me for 100..24hr turnaround
