Open up the PS3 and then open up the Blu-Ray Drive. Then clean the lens with rubbing alcohol or isopropyl alcohol on a q-tip. I heard that lighter fluid on a q-tip works way better than rubbing alcohol and isopropyl alcohol, so try using it on a q-tip to clean the lens. I'm not responsible for any damages to your console.

Why wont my PS3 play any blueray games or movies?


Try using a lens cleaning disc. If that doesn't help your PS3's disc drive is probably dying. Time to call Sony support...

Hey Ron,

What happens you put a ps3 disc in the drive? Does it not register at all? Does it read BLUERAY movies because if so it should read games as well.
