Ps3 plays videos but not games


Before doing anything else, you should run a lens cleaning disk for dvds through ps3.

Also, im willing to bet it will play ps2 games, since they run on a different format then ps3 ...

If you can read ps2 games, then you dont need to replace the drive unit. If after running the lens cleaner, you still cant play ps3, or ps2 games..

Then you may need to replace the drive unit

60GB PS3 will play PS1 and PS3 games but not PS2.


this is a problem with some ps3's especialy the high GB ones like mine. they made it so most if not all of the ps2 games cannot be played to cut down on price and to leave room for all the memory. so you can still play ps1's but you cant play ps2's. sorry

Ps3 won't play game or certain dvds


Ok go out and get a cd cleaner.
Should take care of it IF ITS DUST>
It costs 7-10$ and if it fixes your issue then you save a bunch!
If not you will need to make sure Sony's warrenty is not valid and its not if you dont have the recipet.
You can take it apart and instal a new blu ray unit or send it to sony for 150$ plus s&h.
I have blu ray parts if you need them.

PS: what size is the ps3? 20-40-60-80 gb hd?

Ps3 games/ ps games wont play but ps2 games will


Hi Binma1990, Your best bet on getting this fixed is to go to Gamestop store and get a DVD cleaning disc kit. This in many cases will work to clean the lens of the laser without opening the PS3 and voiding the warranty. Follow the instructions on the kit in detail to get best results. If you have no luck there and are not comfortable opening the PS3, the playstation Clinic can help. Contact Repairtech@playstationclinic.com
