My ps3 will not read any ps3 disk but it will read movies whats wrong?


I would see if it reads blueray MOVIES, if not it could be a problem with the blueray reader. In that case I would see if you can locate one of those cleaning discs with a brush on it to clean the laser or contact sony to see if your console is under warranty.

PS3 READING DVD'S + CD'S BUT NOT GAMES WHATS UP ?


Hello,

To start the laser reads disc's differently. A CD or DVD is just your typical disc then you have blueray which your games are burned onto a blueray disc. Your optical lens is damaged and likely unable to read blueray format.

If you have a blueray movie or can borrow one, try it and see if it still plays that will determine if that is the problem.

If so you will have to replace the optical lens,

Note: Opening your PS3 will void your warranty, so if you are still covered, it is best to send it in to Sony for repair.

Good news is it is easy to do and there are many free step by step tutorials with pictures or videos to show you how. If you must do it yourself.

PS3 won't play blu ray or games. Will play


Mine just did the same thing two days ago. i have been researching the internet about this cause im not about to spend 150 through sony. anyway what is going on is there are two seperate diods in the laser compartment, one reads blurays and which is also ur games because they are consetered blueray also, and the other diod is for regular dvd and music cds. sounds like the blueray diod has took a ****. To get that part you have to order a new laser which is 150. youtube will show you how to change it. looks very easy

Ps3 start error 80010514


Hi

Hi

This ia a known error with the ps3 and unfortunately is not that easy to fix. Sony simply have the following to say about this error

"Error 80010514 - Issue reading Disks"

If this error is showing on more than one disk then the problem lies in the blueray drive itself which has become faulty. Sony are advising that these ps3's which are showing this persistant error need to be returned for service. Expected cost is around $150 if your unit is outside warranty.

For information on how to return your unit see this link

BLUERAY


if your ps3 is not set up to auto play when you insert disk. the disk should show in the menu under video menu, just select the dvd icon. If it still wont play the easiest way to figure out the problem is go to your settings menu and select reset default settings. this will reset to factory settings but wont delete and info stored in your harddrive. then try again. it should play.

My blueray cd is not reading


when putting disk in check by listening if you can hear the disk spinning at high speeds or a clickin noise, this means the laser is having trouble reading disk,try cleaning with a cd laser cleaner you can get these from comet argos pc world etc,if this does not work the laser may have burned out,one of the main faults with playstation and xbox is the fans that cool down the system also draw in dust through the vents wich inturn soil the laser lens hope this helps andy
