    cannot read any disc at all. when you insert a disc all i see is a little circle on the upper right hand corner of the screen that goes round and round.

    Playing Grand turismo5 and it quit. Havent been able to get the PS3 to display anything on the screen through HDMI or the AV cable. Tried the power button on the back. disconnected the cables, tried different games. nothing. Seems like the video card died? Any Ideas??

    Well I tried some solutions that I got from other people but none worked. So I called up soney at 1-800-345-7669 and went threw the aotomated proess and then asked to talk to a live person and we troubleshooted it by seeing if it played ps2,blue ray, or dvds and it did. So then we also went under settings and went down to system settings and turned on auto start and that still didnt work. So the guy told me that i had to send in the ps3 to soney for $149. And they sent me a box and everything to send it back out to them.

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...

60GB PS3 will play PS1 and PS3 games but not PS2.

this is a problem with some ps3's especialy the high GB ones like mine. they made it so most if not all of the ps2 games cannot be played to cut down on price and to leave room for all the memory. so you can still play ps1's but you cant play ps2's. sorry

From what I understand its a problem with the backwards compatibililty(the engine/drive that lets you play ps1/ps2 games)on the 60g.Sony says they have never heard of this problem yet these models are no longer in production.I have had mine for 2 years and it died today,same problem.

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.
