    [Answered] PS3 blu-ray drive stopped playing games help?

    can anyone help, my blu-ray drive stopped playing games ?
    Best Answer - Posted by HeyManHRU:

    If it's just that one game not working it's probably the disc. But like every one here already mentioned, Clean the laser or buy a new one.

    maybe the blu-ray laser is blown. Does it play DVDs and/or CDs?

    Clean it and check the laser - if you only see a red dot then it's screwed.

    I found that a lot of drives with read errors just needed the laser rails cleaning & re-greasing - these are the 2 metal rods that the laser slides back & forth on. Check that the game disc actually spins up - if not you need a new spindle motor...
