My playstation 3 does not recognize the PS3 disc's anymore but does still read the PS2 disc's. Is the Bluray going out? Can i buy just that part to fix it?


Hi,

The answer to your question is a definite Yes.


This is a very common problem with the PS3 and is most often caused by a problem with the laser on the Bluray drive which is malfunctioning and can no longer 'see' or read the game disk properly.

The PS3 uses a dual laser system. This consists of either a dual refractor type lens or two entirely seperate lenses depending on which pickup is fitted to your particular system. One laser is for reading ordinary DVD disks and PS2 disks and the other for Bluray and PS3 games.


The symptoms you describe are quite typical of a failure of the Bluray laser whilst the other laser is still functioning to read DVDs and PS2 discs.

For more information on how to resolve the problem please have a look at this FixYa Tip on the subject.

Many thanks for using FixYa

The playstation 3 wont read discs. Regardless of what disc I put in, DVD, Bluray, game or CD it just wont read. I'm pretty sure that it's not spinning the disc because it doesn't make the humming sound it...


You could buy a new Bluray drive and swap the dead one out. They cost around $80 and aren't hard at all to swap out. You could also try to lubricate the shaft of the drive motor, as it may just have ground to a halt from friction. Other than that, there's not much other than getting a repair/replacement from Sony.

My playstation 3 will only play playstation 2 games. How do I fix this?


Does it read DVD videos/BluRay video discs? If it won't read a blu-ray I'd suggest it's a fault with the laser

My ps3 will play regular dvd discs but no games whats wrong?


It's quite likely due to a weak Blu Ray laser. The DVD and BluRay are 2 different lasers so it could still be able to read and play DVD/CD but not the BluRay games.

Ps3 wont read dvd or bluray discs


If you are facing problems of freezing and non-readable disc you should first try lens cleaning, the best option would be to give it for repairs to Sony if your product is under warranty

It wont show the start game option?


Carefuly clean the middle section of your game disc using the soft cloth and insert the disc again. Laser lens can't read the disc if the middle section has fingerprints and etc. Remember when it comes to CD, DVD, BluRay discs all the record goes from the middle outwards.

PS3 wont read any games, dvds or cds


I have the same problem. My PS3 stopped reading any bluray discs. The spinning circle in the top right corner will come on for a few seconds when a disc is inserted, but then nothing. I found a work-around to get it to read discs though. You have to have a bluray disc in the drive (game or movie) and start a downloaded game or Playstation Home. Once the game or Home loads, hit the PS button on the controller. The crossbar menu will pull up and you will notice the disc icon will (magically) pop up. Click the quit game icon. Once you are out of the downloaded game or Home the disc icon will still be there. You can then load the game or disc. The icon will remain there until you eject the disc, so you will have to repeat this every time you want to load a game. Although this is a workaround to prevent Sony from gouging you for $150+, this is still not a fix. A fix would be for Sony to admit they have a money making firmware problem and fix it. This fix will only work if you don't have an actual hardware failure (which I apparently don't). I think a class action lawsuit is in order for everyone that has this problem and especially for those who have shelled out the money to fix something that is firmware related. I'm sure Sony will only fix the firmware to make this workaround not work anymore so as not to lose their little cash flow scheme.

Sony Playstation 3 does not read dvd blurau nothing


Check for any scratches on the game disc. If that doesn't work then turn off the system completely with the main power switch located on the back of the console to restart the system and try again, If somehow that doesnt work call Sony technical support so they can try to solve the problem.
