All over a sudden my console doesnt do anything when i put in my games and Blue ray discs. Just minutes ago i was watching Kungufu hustle on a BD and now all i get is the main menu and i cannot acces any discs. And it does not tell me anything about the discs being compatible or not.
Please anyone help

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.
Sounds like your ps3 is having trouble reading blu-ray discs, do you have any movies on blu-ray you can test? The only solution really is to send it in for repair, hopefully you're still under warranty?
Hi there, Most PS3 systems end up doing this due to an over heating of the laser lens. Let me explain: The laser lens in the PS3 is made to read mainly Blue Ray games. The movies need to be read faster than the game discs which causes it to work harder thus the problem arising. Sometimes, your lucky enough for this to only be a dirty lens problem due to rental movies which are most of the time, if not always, dirty. Have you tried a lens cleaner kit?
This is the CD-ROM with a small brush on it to clean your laser lens head.
This problem has happened to me in the past and this solved the problem.
It is a common problem for any lens reading console.
When you put in a disc, listen for the disc to start spinning. If you do not hear that then the laser and/or the spindle have blown out. You will have to get your Blu-Ray player serviced by a pro or Sony. Sony may fix it for free. They know that the drives are failing. So call them first. I hope this helps! Good luck to you.
