Re: replaced blu-ray laser on ps3 games play but not dvds
Maybe the DVD laser is damaged somehow. Try ripping the DVD movie and converting it to common video files to play on PS3. PS3 can play movies from USB sticks. Just transfer the converted DVD movies to a USB stick and you can play it directly using the built-in video player of your PS3. Here's how to rip a Blu-ray disc to play on PS3, it also works for DVD: Direct and Indirect Ways to Play Blu Ray on PS3 Respectively

Will it play anything? The laser eye may need to be cleaned. Sometimes the drive will play DVDs but not games, or games and bluray movies, but not DVDs .... in that situation, the bluray laser may need to be replaced
Ok your laser is bad. You need to replace it. Your laser has a blu ray diode which lights up blue and reads ps3 games and blu ray games. Then it has a red diode which plays ps2 games dvds cds ps1 games. Your blu ray diode is burned up. You will have to replace the laser its pretty simple.
A bad laser could affect the sound cause it can't read all the information from the disc. Try games as well and see if it does the same thing, sounds like a new drive is in order. There is one laser in those drives and require different strengths to read different discs. Also try a music disc that you know is good. If your still getting the same issue then get the drive replaced or just replace the laser if you have some technical knowledge.
Then the Blu-Ray part of the laser pickup assembly is defect. Since DVD's use a different laser from the pickup, the DVDs will read fine. However the Blu-Ray part is defective and needs to be replaced.
the blue ray laser has two high energy beams at 450nm(bluelight) and 730nm (redlight). the highpower diode on your machine im afraid has failed. you need to install a new laser ..only 100 i charge or 160 from sony (150+TAX 2 week wait) Now if you have the newer model laser KES410ACA, then you have 2 SEPARATE light sources...these tend not to fail as often
