Blue ray is not working


hello there!
i see that you're blue ray is not working on your PS3 console,
do these steps first:1. unplug all the cables and plug it again after 5mins.2. Always remember to wipe first the disc and the disc tray before putting it. Sometimes the dust is the problem why the consoles cannot read or detect the disc. ( always do this even if it's not blue ray, OK?)3. try the blue ray disc to see if it's working.
if these didn't work, try to call the service center or other authorized technician of the console and ask about your problem. maybe it has to replace some parts.
kindly rate this post and thank you for choosing fixya.

Are you trying to put a Blu Ray disc in an Xbox 360? Blu Ray discs can only be played in a Blue Ray player or a PS3. Did you mean something else by Blue disk?

It will not play my games or movies. play demo games


Chances are the blue ray eye is burnt out very common problem. When the disc enters the eye blinks to see there is a disc. Then the motor starts spinning the disc. The eye then figures out if it is a blue ray or a regular disc. If the eye is dirty or burnt out the disc will not spin. Try cleaning the eye first. You might have to tear apart to do if regular laser cleaner disc doesnt work. I have the 40 gig version and it is a paper weight for now. There are replacement eyes and motors for them for around $70. Only recommend this if you are familiar with electronics and are comfortable doing this. You will have to tear apart the system down to the blue ray drive. then tear apart the blue ray drive. There are plenty of you tube videos on how to do this. No you can not just change the whole blue ray drive because the drive is paired with that mother board.

The PS3 will not play the new (BD) dvd I just hired .And i have never had this problem befor. Its askin me to renew my encryption key and says something about system software up date. I am not connected to...


All Blue Ray players need to be updated from time to time to keep up with the growing technology of Blue Ray. PS3 is the same way. It is asking you to update your PS3 in order to play the disc. On the back of the PS3 is a Ethernet port (looks like an over sized phone jack) connect this to your internet (modem) and it will update your encryption key and software needed to play Blue Ray discs. Here is a link for that as well.

Tried to get internet


hi...please verify:
  • your dvd disc region (must be region free or 1 - for USA)
  • playing blue-ray MOVIES disc, to check a possible problem with your reader .
if the blue ray movie doesn't work, you have got a possible problem with your blue ray dvd reader .
then, take it to an assistance center for hardware repair ..

Screen freezes playing Blue Ray discs only.


I answer this question like ten times a day so don't feel bad.

The blu-ray laser in your PS3 is a three part laser (cd / dvd / blu-ray). They last only 1-3 years with average use. It's a Sony defect.

Check out my common PS3 problem and repair guide for tips and suggestions for your problem.

PS3 Wont Play Game OR Blue Ray Disc


reset to the factory default then load ver 2.60(most current). If the system still does not read any discs the laser is bad.

My ps3 blue ray wont read any disc


Have you attached the original blu ray board to the replacement unit?
That board is paired with the motherboard and will not work with a different one.
