Get a disc cleaning kit and run it in the machine to clean the optical pickup lens. Let the unit dry out for about 10 minutes and try your disc. Also, make sure your discs are not region specific and all scratched to hell or dirty. If that don't do the trick then you gong to have to open this puppy up and replace the optical drive as it has given up the ghost. If your still under warranty, then take it back to the shop and have them deal with it.

Cheers old chap.

My sharp blu ray player no longer plays blu rays

If it plays CDs and DVDs but not BluRays at all, then the blue laser is burned out. CDs and DVDs use a different laser. A needed firmware update would not prevent it from reading a BluRay.

Blu-ray player is up to date with firmware but won't read blu-ray dvds.

There's no such thing as a 'BluRay DVD'. There are BluRay discs, and there are DVDs. Are you saying it doesn't read anything at all?

Since a week ago, the player doen't want to read bluray discs. It reads the dvds but not the bluray discs.

The DVDs use red light, and the blue rays use blue light, 2 systems. Have you tried a cleaning disc?

Hi just got a second hand bush blu ray player, plays normal DVDs but won't play blu rays! Can you help? Thanks Jez

There should be nothing special about playing the different DVDs. Putting in a normal DVD compared to a BluRay should not require you to do anything different.

Look at the front of the DVD player and look for the BluRay logo. If you do not see it on the front of the DVD player then you do not have a BluRay player.

My Magnavox bluray disc player NB500MG9 will not play bluray dvds. Please help

My Blu-Ray will not play x disc
A Blu-ray player can play DVD or CD and still not play Blu-ray. It may play Blu-ray but not CD or DVD, or burned discs. This is all caused by the 'optical' a part that reads the disc in the machine. Your player will need service as a Blu-ray optic cannot just be 'dropped' into a player.

Ps3 wont play games, dvds, or blurays. The disc doesn't spin??

This may be a case of replacing the laser lens. If your console is out of warranty, take it to your local Game Stop, or somewhere that does Sony repair. PSR does Sony authorized repair, but it usually involves shipping. You can contact PSR at 877-777-3491, or email at Hope this was helpful

Bluray wont read my ps3 games on my ps3

the bluray laser is bad. The PS3 has two lasers – one to read bluray, another to read DVDs. Games are in the bluray format… as well as your… well, bluray movies.
Or, this might be the issue.
If your PS3 is under warranty, send it in for repair. Describe the issue, and they will give you an RMA. I once had my PS3 repaired and back to me within the week.

A better pic

Yes there is. You can buy an HD Disc player. There is two types out there, HD and Bluray. I would recommend Bluray because it seems like HD DVDs are falling off. So buy a Bluray player and Bluray discs instead of traditional DVDs, traditional DVDs will not put out in HD. Also, if you have cable, get an HD receiver and you can pick up the special HD channels. Good luck. If you need anymore help, let me know.
