    my game didnt freeze, but one morning i felt like playing the game

    so i put in nba2k8. The game didnt move passed the main menu into the game, so i put in another game and that

    did the same thing. Then, i put in a blue- ray disc and that did the same exact thing.

You could just try cleaning the lense with a little rubbing alcohol. I say this because the lense could just be to dusty so it cant read any disks.

Sounds like the optical reader is broken... u have any warranty left?

My ps3 stop playing all blueray disk (games and movies) but it play games and movies that are not blueray . when i put in a bd a message come up that say an error has happen doing start up and then givings...

Hi, You have the model PS3 with the dual laser, Ones for Blue Ray and ones for standard definition. They are part of the same assembly and cant be changed individually, You will need to replace the whole laser deck if you are good with openeing thins up but if not then search ebay for a complete blue ray drive and its a simple plug out plug in swap over. There are loads of guides on youtube for laser replacement. Be sure to use the Serial coee on the console label to get the correct compatible laser. If you are in Ireland or UK we can do the repair for you. Just reply to this comment if interested.

To start the laser reads disc's differently. A CD or DVD is just your typical disc then you have blueray which your games are burned onto a blueray disc. Your optical lens is damaged and likely unable to read blueray format.

If you have a blueray movie or can borrow one, try it and see if it still plays that will determine if that is the problem.

If so you will have to replace the optical lens,

Note: Opening your PS3 will void your warranty, so if you are still covered, it is best to send it in to Sony for repair.

Good news is it is easy to do and there are many free step by step tutorials with pictures or videos to show you how. If you must do it yourself.

I bought a playstation 3 in South Africa and have moved to Australia and I can get any game or DVD to play on it that I have bought in Australia why?

I think you wanted to write that you CAN'T watch DVDs or play games bought in Australia on your PS3.
The reason is the region code of your playstation. It only can play Region Code 2 DVDs and games. In Australia you only can buy Region Code 4 media.
You need to buy your media from south africa or Europe. Some blueray-discs are region code free. You can check this on:
As far as I know it's not possible at the moment to change the region code of the play station.
