Its a problem with the latest download update. sorry to say but its a job for sony as long as its still under warranty. just phone them up explain the probs your having and they will send you a new (normally reconditioned) unit out. i'm getting my new one tomorrow. upset it broke but sony's replacement service is very good.

My ps3 will not read my games , but it will read dvd's


Blu-rays utilise a blue laser within the drive and DVDs use a red laser.
Sounds like the blu-ray/games reading blue laser has died and it'll need replacing.

When i put a game or dvd in my ps3 it doesnt load up either and it doesnt even display it were its ment to be so i cant do anything


Hi Billy,

The disc reading problem is quite a common one!

It is caused by the laser coming away from the drive and you need to readjust the laser to get it to work.

Sounds bad but at least the drive is not broken JUST the laser needs readjusting.

Now let us look at how you can fix this:

Solution 1:

The normal way to fix this is to send it in and they will do the work for you at the factory. However it will cost about $150 and also you will have to wait about 4 weeks.

If you do not play on your PS3 that much this may be the best solution for you.

Solution 2: For A Faster Fix

If you want the games reading problem fixed quickly then you should check out some good PS3 Repair guides.

They normally include videos showing you how to readjust the laser - it takes about 20 mins.

Make sure you check out the full reviews below so you can fix a good one!

My playstation loads dvds and playstation 2 games but when i put a playsation 3 game in the game disc icon doesnt show so i cant click it to start my game


Try different ps3 games and if your system doesn't load any of them then that means the laser is bad and would need to be replaced. You can also just replace the dvd drive as well and you buy either the laser or the whole drive off of Ebay.

Games will not load ps3


here is one of the best answers that I ran across in the past about said issue.

this is what i would do :
First of all, try playing all of your games and see if its just one disk or ur ps3, following that i would say u put in a blu-ray movie and check if that works, if it doesn't, then u are in serious trouble ( not really!). Get a USB Memory Stick( u know one of those little things u plug in a computer and can save all of ur stuff in) save ur important stuff. and then after that reset ur system settings, u can do that by:
Settings> System Settings> Restore System Settings
after that try it and if it doesnt work, go again to system settings but this time around, go to restore ps3 system, u can do that by:
Settings> Sysem Settings> Restore PS3 System.
it should be noted that all of ur stuff will be deleted, so i hope u saved all of ur game saves on that usb flash stcik thing.
if it doesnt work then do the following:
call sony:
SCEA Consumer Services
1-800-345-SONY (7669)
Monday - Saturday 6:00 AM - 8:00 PM PST
Sunday 7:00 - AM 6:30 PM PST
and tell them about ur problem, they will tell u to restore system settings or restore ps3 system, and thats what i told u, if it doesnt work, they will ask for ur adresss ( i hope u live in North America) and will ask u ur email, phone number and all that. After that they will send u a box( takes around 4-5 business days for the box to get to ur house, but it really matters where u live) and u put ur ps3 in that box, send it back, and then they will fix it, if they cant they will either send u a refurbished ps3 which is someone elses ps3 but dont worry its as good as brand new or if not, they will send u a new ps3. which will take sbout 4-5 business days, and again depends on where u live!

AFTER WORKING FOR A YEAR, PLAYING BOTH GAMES AND BLUE RAY MOVIES, MY PLAYSTATION 3 WILL NOT PLAY MOVIES. WHEN A BLUE RAY DVD IS INSERTED IT BRIEFLY SHOWS THE TITLE ON THE TV SCREEN AND THEN THE SCREEN GOES...


1. Turn off the ps3.
2. press down on the on/off button on the front of ps3 while turning on the button from the back. DO not let it go until you hear 2 beeps and will show a red light.
3. press the on/off button again and do not let it go until you hear 1 beep, paused, and two beeps. Let it go.
4. There should be a prompt asking you what to do. If you have hdmi, answer all the question yes etc.
5 there should be a menu list asking what you need done.. setting wise..

6. Choose the # 3rd list (not sure how many they were).
7. IF it tells you that your data is corrupted etc.. just click ok
8. wait till progress ends ( if it tells your your data is corrupted again, just click ok again).
9. It's going to do some loading again...
10.. end of restoring and you should see your ps3 menu

System restart in the middle of games


2.16? You know its up to 2.60? Try updating it again.

If you have trouble updating it, download the 2.60 update from http://www.us.playstation.com/PS3 and put it on a memorystick of any kind. Insert the memory stick into the PS3 (with newer PS3's you'll need a usb drive) The site will tell you how to make the folder the PS3 will read from.

You can use the service recovery menu by turning your PS3 off then holding the power button while turning it on till you hear two beeps, your PS3 controller cannot be pluged in while you do this. It will bring up a screen telling you to connect the PS3 controller, once you do that go to the system update and update it.

Your PS2 is definitely broken. Either send it in to Sony to be repaired or buy a new PS3. Bummer. Sorry to hear about this.
