Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console

1 Answer

So I put a ps3 game, blu-ray movie, cd, dvd, ect. and the system shows that its trying to load ( the little clock at the top left of the screen), but nothing shows up under games. I opened it up and saw that the disc wasn't spinning but you could hear a small noise like it was trying to spin but wouldn't. I don't know if it's the disc drive motor or the lens etc. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

My ps3 sometimes loads my games but other times it wont load them at all but it is still loading my dvds and cds


Well it sounds like your Blu ray laser is broken. Your best bet is to send it in to Sony for repairs.

My ps3 wont load any of my games but still plays my dvds


First off, have you tried playing Blu-Ray movies/games instead of DVD's?
If you have and only the DVD's work then it sounds like the "blu ray" part of the drive has died.

In the PS3 blu ray drive there is a lens for blu ray movies/games and a seperate one for dvd/cd's. Sounds like the blu ray lens one broke.
The cost for repair of this $150 dollars if not under warranty.
Now before calling sony try this.
  1. Update your firmware (if you aren't running the latest already). Yup, this overwrites some of system software that may have been corrupted.

  2. First, back up your game saves, and any music you have on your HDD. Format the PS3! Yup, again this fixes corrupted files on the HDD by forcing the PS3 to rewrite them.

  3. Buy a Blu-Ray cleaner and try it.

Sadly if these don't work, you will need to give Sony a call, and have that coffin mailed your way.

PS3 isn't reading games/blu-ray/ or DVD discs, only audio CD's?


this is a symptom of blue ray lens failure (BDL)

if you are still under warranty, I suggest have the unit or BD (drive) replaced.

Try using a cd cleaner as it may be a dirty lens.

Sounds like a problem with your blu-ray drive.

Try playing a blu-ray movie and a dvd.

Let me know what happens and we'll go from there.

My PS3 now will not play PS3 games but still plays PS2 games


You're blu-ray drive has partially died. It's a three part laser (cd, dvd, blu-ray). The most important part of yours has died that's why you can still play dvd and PS2 games because they use the dvd laser and not the blu-ray.

Please help me, i beg you


One of the first things I'd suggest to you is to try cleaning the lens. It's possible a little bit of dust or smoke etc has clouded it up a bit. I'm pretty sure DVD lens cleaning discs will not work, but don't quote me on that. Anyway a blu-ray lens cleaner should run anywhere from just over 10 to probably around 20$US. In fact I think Amazon has a special on one from Maxell.

If that fails you may very well indeed have a problem with your blu-ray drive if it's in warranty I'd contact Sony A.S.A.P.

On a side note does it read DVD's CD's or blu-ray movies or is it only Blu-ray games?
