You can fix it yourself for around 150$ buying it online or a store such as best buy will charge you that plus a extra fee

The laser mechanism has lost its ability to focus properly. Not cost effective to repair. Get a new one.

I can play dvds but alot of blo rays i get a check disc


The problem is in the laser pickup assembly, when blue ray disc are loaded it runs at a higher velocity than standard dvd's and more precision in tracking to produce the greater resolution, unfortunately the only way to address the problem is replace the machine because the repair cost will exceed the price of a new unit by a wide margin.

Won't load blue ray disc have upgraded to latest firmware and reset the player will play regular dvd but not blue ray, just started happening, used to play blue ray


The Laser Pickup Assembly is defective, to play blue ray it needs higher precision and velocity to produce the higher resolution, it is not cost effective for repair.

Playstation 3 won't read disks... movies or games. Green and blue lights on.


99 out of 100 times it means the blu-ray laser has failed. You will need to swap it out with a new one. I would suggest finding a local game repair company / guy. Repair takes about 15 minutes with someone who has the parts and right tools. Average repair cost out the door is about 100 or through Sony it's 150+ tax shipping :(

Won't play blue rays


Hi there, it sounds like your blu ray laser has become faulty. Unfortunately this is a very common problem for the PS3 and there is not much that can be done about it. New lasers can be bought but they are difficult to fix. You could buy a new drive from somewhere like ebay at a cost of around £60. They are much easier to fit than the lasers themselves but you must make sure you keep the circuit board on your blu ray drive and swap it to the replacement drive as this is paired to the motherboard and will not work if it is not with the original motherboard.

Hope this helps and thanks for using FixYa

My PS3 isnt playing blue ray what upgrade do I need in order for this 2 work?


Sounds like your laser has gone bad. The PS3 has dual lasers, one for dvd and one for blu ray. So dvd playback might still work, but blu ray wont. You could send it back to sony for repairs, but that could take weeks and still cost you. Try CPR in NYC, they do repairs in house, and usually have them done within a week. You could ship your unit directly to them.

Hope it helps!

My PS3 stopped playing blue ray movies, but still plays dvds. Is it a configuration problem?


No, the blu-ray laser is a three part laser. The blu-ray portion has gone out. Only way to fix it is to replace the laser.
