Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console

1 Answer

Seems to be skipping on just the games

My roommate just gave this to me and Im very inclined to DiY method. It reads blue rays pretty well no skipping, but I put in a copy of a game and started a new game and it froze within a few seconds, the audio kept playing but visuals stopped. I was thinking of resetting to factory default settings, or maybe just cleaning it out. Anything knowledgeable would be appreciated

Game CD's get dirty pretty fast as you will use them frequently. Try cleaning the CD before you move on to more drastic measures. Remember to clean from the center out to the edge only.

PS3 can't read game disc but dvd or blue ray disc, the blu-ray drive may be suffing problems. But trouble shooting is not easy : Most gamers think cleaning the lens with some fluid can clear the fault but actually can't fix. You need some killer methods to fix and test it.

Ps3 will not read games.. the blue and green light are both on.. its not making any weird noise.. its seems as if its spinning and reading but the game icon wont pop up to indicate there is a game in...


This is unfortunately due to the Blu Ray lens developing a fault within the disk drive or becoming dirty. Usually it will still play DVD's but not Blu Ray discs or games. You could try a laser lens cleaning disc but 9 times out of 10 this doesnt usually work. I am guessing this is the new PS3 slim model you have trouble with, which I am pretty sure are still under a year old from launch date. In which case I would give Sony a ring as this should still be under warranty. They should offer you a replacement free of charge.

Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa

Wont play dvd blue rays or games


Hi There

I reciently had a simular issue.If you higlight the "Game" headding from the main page and in the little preview box you can see the Game you just need to reset the HDMI setting's. as HDMI carries sound and picture it looks like the game is not reading/ loading. If you can not see the game it may be your Blue ray lense. I hope this Helps.
