My ps3 console will not play game discs for some reason! It will play movies just fine but not games HELP!!!!!


The Playstation 3 is a wonderful video game console, however, with heavy usage, the laser does eventually burn out. The first signs of the laser starting to burn out is that your game will start freezing during game play. Eventually the game will stop reading altogether (even though movies sometimes still work). Eventually movies will stop working and the whole laser will eventually die.

The following website sells PS3 lasers and also performs repairs:

My son's ps3 stopped playing games after his disc got jamed. i took it apart and got the disk out. everthing works but it will not play games or dvd's


Hello marcs442!

The PS3 has a common problem with the disc drive. It may have been no fault of your own, but the drive itself may have stopped working. In most areas, local PC shops offer a quick and reasonably priced solution. Most of the time, the disc drive just has to be replaced, which is less expensive than buying a whole new system!

Please remember to rate if this was helpful!

I turn on the ps3, and it turns on fine. But when I insert a video game disc, I hear the reader start and then stop. It then sends a message that an error occurred at start up. Please advise on course of...


You may have noticed that this has happened over time, and you play video games much more than you play dvds. Here are some steps you may trouble shoot with:
1.Try rebooting the system

2.Try updating the firmware by simply connecting to the internet.
3.If the above solutions did not work unfortunately, your laser diode for reading Game Discs may have burned out. Try taking it to a store, which fixes video games consoles near you. Ask to either replace the laser diode, the whole disc reader all together, or to try pot calibrating the diode.

Sounds like the update did not install properly. You will have to go back and try to run it again.
xboxscene forums has the answer, unfortunately I can't open the page right now. look up "bad update freezing" or "system freezing after update".

Sorry I don't have the link.

Hello, and sorry to hear you have PS3 troubles, but let me tell you the first thing i would do is try playing another game to make sure if this issue is happening only with this game or with all of them, if it happens only with this game, then its not the system, and it happens with all the games then it is a system issue. Try playing music via USB to see if you get any sound, and try playing a dvd or a Bluray movie to see if you have similar problems, try shutting the whole system off from the back for a couple of minutes and unplug it, make sure everything is connected properly. And lastly if it doesn't work after all that, then contact Sony for advanced support and consider a warranty replacement.
