I've fixed 100's of PS3's. The blu-ray laser has failed. You'll need to swap it out.

MY PLAYSTATION3 WONT READ GAMES N I HAV ANOTHER THAT HAS THE RED RING


The Blu Ray Laser is wearing out. This is a common issue among the newer video game consoles. The laser is constantly lighting up to read the discs while you are playing your Playstation 3 whether you are playing games, Blu Ray movies, or DVD movies. Eventually the laser will burn out. As it starts to wear out, first the games or movies will freeze. After a while, it will not read Blu Ray at all. Finally it will quit reading anything. You can find lasers at the following website starting at $49.95. The same website also performs repairs of the Playstation 3 console:

Ps3 not spinning disc, replaced spindle motor, did not fix. Please help


Hi there, this is because the actual laser needs replacing, not the disc spinner motor. With the PS3 the laser reads the disc data type, whether it be a DVD, game , audio cd or blu ray movie. It then spins the disc up to the required read speed. When the laser is faulty is cannot read the disc type so will not spin at all.

Hope this helps

Playstation will play ps2 games movies an cds but wont play my ps3 games


Hey Ron,

What happens you put a ps3 disc in the drive? Does it not register at all? Does it read BLUERAY movies because if so it should read games as well.

My ps2 wont read any game encrypted on a blue dvd disc not evn a movie........it plays it so slow even if the cd is scratch less......


When this happens, it's due to a failing laser. As the laser starts to fail, the system will stop reading blue discs first, then dvds, then cds. You can find a new laser at the following website:
