There's likely an issue with the optical drive in the unit. The most common reason for read failure is a dirty lens. Your best bet is to get a can of compressed air and direct it into the PS3 and try to blast any dust and such off the lens. It's located where the disc tray would be if it were closed.

My ps3 iant reading games or blu ray discs how can i fix this myself?


I've been told that Blue Ray movies don't work on PS3 unless you use an HDMI cable; but I haven't tested that. Also, some Blue-ray on PS3 load as movies, some load as games depending on the content. So check the automatic play feature, see if you can select the BD from the video section. On your Xross media bar, go to videos and see if there is a blue disc (BD-rom), click X.

Also make sure that the movie is actually blue-ray. Some old HD movies are sold off on eBay, etc as Blue ray when they aren't. Check it on Blueray.com, if the movie isn't listed it may be HD only.

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.

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.

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 wont play blue ray discs or my games anymore


if your ps3 doesnt play ANY games or dvds, that may mean that the eye on the ps3(the thing that reads the disks and dvds) is malfunctioning, not moving efficiently enough to procces the disk, not recognizing the encrypted code on the disks, or the optical eye could even be scratched. the disk feed could also not be feeding the disk in far enough for the eye to read it. i would definitly suggest calling customer service and/or bringing the ps3 to an A+ certified technition to "diagnose" your problem.
