  • desmond smith Dec 02, 2008

    my game didnt freeze, but one morning i felt like playing the game

    so i put in nba2k8. The game didnt move passed the main menu into the game, so i put in another game and that

    did the same thing. Then, i put in a blue- ray disc and that did the same exact thing.

    i really need help and my ps3 wont take any disc, not even a disc cleaner.

You could just try cleaning the lense with a little rubbing alcohol. I say this because the lense could just be to dusty so it cant read any disks.

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...

Playstation will play ps2 games movies an cds but wont play my ps3 games

Hey Ron,

What happens you put a ps3 disc in the drive? Does it not register at all? Does it read BLUERAY movies because if so it should read games as well.

Ps3 plays DVD and Blueray just fine, but will not play game discs... can't seem to read them. discs are in perfect condition, tried several different discs, no luck.

Some time when that happens the system configuration is wrong reset the configuration to game play on. That should let you play Movies and game.But!, make sure you remove the disk.

My ps3 has a hard time reading ps3 games but doesnt have a problem reading anything else.

Have you tryed to play a BlueRay movie? PS3 games are stored on BlueRay so it might play DVD's and CD's, but the BlueRay's laser diode could be burning out.
