Hey, my PS3 is doing the same thing. It froze up during a game and now it won't recognize anything I put in it. Did you ever get this resolved and if so, how?
Thanks!!!

If game freeze the reason is not complicate to explain.
Unable to read media and this mean the laser is skipping some step during the reading process.This can be caused by a scratched disk or a dirty laser or both.The ps3 laser have basically 2 laser Diode.One is red and one is Blue.Some time if a diode died you can see the machine reading ps2 game but no ps3 and blu ray.If the red diode die you are able to read blu ray but no ps2.I suggest to clean your laser first and if this will not work replasce your laser

I have had my ps3 for four years now. i turned it on this morning to play a game and it will not read any game that i put in. The last two times I did play my game froze in the middle of the game. Can you...


I personally had the exact same problem with my PS3. I had a game freeze and I had to do a hard reset by holding in the power button for several seconds. It was during CoD MW2 although I doubt that has anything to do with it. After I started it back up it refused to read any disc.

Here are some possible solutions in the order you should try them.
Try a full system restore if you don't mind losing the data.
Send it to Sony, its most likely an internal hardware issue with the blu-ray. (Mine was)
Buy a new PS3 as my friend did.

Hope you figure this out.

Ps3 freezing on Blue rays and games.


If your still in warrenty, send it to sony. I've heard that they been having some issues with some of their lens readers; so it could be the lens inside.

Freeze up


for freezing problems... try to move your system away from areas that are often hot, blocking the vents, or blocking air movement. the main culprit for freezing issues is over heating. if your system becomes too hot it will flash green and red where your power button is. so if your having trouble with that problem follow those steps.
