You most likely need to update the blueray's firmware.
To do this is very simple, all you have to do is connect the playstation 3 to a internet network and let it update.
Doing that will update the information needed by the actual blueray player.

My ps3 will play ps2 games but will not play ps3 games! why is this and how can I fix it?


This is likely to be the laser, you can test this by playing a Bluray movie. If the move dosn't play it indecates that the laser is not reading the finer Bluray disks that are PS3 games. If this is the case the laser needs to be replaced, if you are compedent you could watch a tutorial on youtube and repair it yourself. Lasers can be bought from Ebay but you need to open your PS3 to see which one you need. GOOD LUCK..

Ps3 will play movies but not games,have tried different games,wont read them,havent played a game on it in a year.


The games are in bluray format. The ps3 has 3 different lasers (built into one) in the drive. When the bluray laser fails but not the others it will continue to play everything except bluray. You can fix this by getting a replacement laser (ebay etc) opening up the console and drive and swapping out the laser. This is fairly easy as its mainly screws, but there are a few cables to be delicate with. Here is a disassembly guide.

I had the exact same problem. The issue for me wasn't the bluray drive as the above poster had said. For some reason there's a bug in this years Madden that makes it hate profiles. Go to your saved games and delete your profile, you'll be able to access all of your game modes like normal after this, but you'll have to regularly reset the difficulty. Hope this helps!

Very odd that it will play Bluray DVDs but not games. It could be an issue with the harddrive since many games store important information the harddrive and then read it off of there. I suppose the issue could be cropping up because the PS3 cannot access that information on your harddrive thus causing it to fail to play those titles.

What you could try is backing up all the information you have on your harddrive and then formatting it etc. This should clear any corruption. To test if it is indeed any corrupted data then you can test a newly formatted harddrive and see if that allows you to play games just fine. If you have a spare 2.5" SATA HDD lying around, then go ahead and use that as your test drive (keep in mind it will have to be formatted by the PS3 etc).

Hope this helps.

My ps3 is freezing


Hey.

I might sound like a stupid solution, but if the PS3 is in a dusty area it sometimes freezes.. Try to vacume clean it.. Also, is your fan on and does it sound ok. It might freeze due to overheating. If it only freezes when you play games on a disc, it might be a problem with the laser reader, which could also be due to dust.

Hope some of it helped.

Regards

Ps3 plays video games, not bluray movies or dvds


I would start with a firmware update (2.60) and also a full system restore. That should fix the problem. Let me know. I'm a PS3 expert!

PS3 will not play DVD. No trouble playing PS3, PS1 games & CD?


if you can't play bluray movies then your bluray laser is broken. you will still be able to play games, because there are two different lasers.
