Most likely to be the Blu Ray laser. Either broken or not fitted correctly

SOURCE: my playstation3 plays blu ray and reg movies but wont play games

please try:

  • Reinstalling all your game data files
  • Reupdating your system firmware via USB Device (download the update from Playstation Website)
  • Restoring your system (don't forget to backup all your important files !!)
else, contact the support centre for possible hardware issues checking . it can be, unfortunatelly, a problem with your bd reader, and you will need to buy a new one if the system is not covered by warranty =/

I have the solution.

You go to the settings on your PS3 a 'Restore PS3 System'. Once clicked, choose the 'Full Format'

This DOES work. I had the same problem with my PS3 last week, (10th June) so i phoned up Sony Support and they told me to do this. I thought that i would have to replace my Blu-Ray drive but never had to because of this!

Theres a few downsides to this....1. its takes approx 28hours to complete and 2. it will delete everything from your hard drive: music, vids, demos, game saves the lot.
But if you have an external hard drive then you can back up everything onto there, then do the restore. Once you have done it you can then put all your backed up data back on.
Plus you can still get all your purchased downloads from PS store back and it also keeps all your online activity i.e your level on COD4-5 an fifa ultimate team is still there ect.

Other option which will have the same affect but wont take so long is to format the PS3 again found in the settings menu on the PS3.

I would suggest to Restore PS3 System before spending money on replacing the drive when you might not need to.

Note: Again, this advice was given to me by the Sony Support line when i had the same problem on 10th June 09. I Phoned the PS3 line to confirm that i needed the Blu-Ray drive replacing, which to my suprise i didnt!

My PS3 shuts down only on PS3 games


The first thing I would do is a System Update!!!!!! This happened to me playing Army of Two until I Updated it. With games and Some Blu-Rays (Iron Man I had the same problem) require updates to play and function properly! Just hook up to your Network (Router or Modem) Create a Playstaion store account (To the Right on the PS3 Crossbar) Then go to the 2nd to left on the Crossbar, Then all the way up. Grab the update and you should be Good! This happened Twice to me, So now I always update and No probs! Good Luck!

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.
