@Zondervanaxle Are the PS4 and the blurays the same region? For example if your PS4 is from North America it can only play North American DVDs and Blurays. Even though games arent region locked DVDs and Blurays are.

@Zondervanaxle And make they are not UHD discs, cos they pro won't play them.

We are now in a world of people being offended for other people who they think should be offended, who arent offended.

if i remember, playback for DVD and blu-ray had to be enabled over the internet the first time - after that you didn't need to be connected - but i can't remember if that was only for PS4's launch and later system software updates don't require that anymore.

does it play games from blu-ray? if it's not playing any blu-ray at (movies or game discs), it could be a problem with the laser (maybe dirty, or mis-aligned) - DVDs use a different wavelength (red light), and might not be affected.

there are a number of suggestions here: https://ps4dns.com/ps4-not-reading-disc-fix/

PS4 will not play 4K blu-ray, or discs which are not from your region (US - Region A, Europe/Australia - Region B, etc) or are region free.

Blue ray was supposed to be enabled at launch via internet...this is what i used for watching movies in our living room....ALL GAMES WORK blueray or not...ALL DVDS WORK...just no blueray movies..that worked a while ago

Have you tried shutting down and disconnecting the power?

Ok i tried a few other bluerays this morning..it plays captain america...diehard....diehard with a vengeance...still doesnt play flozen.....i guess my ps4 has good taste..ha ha..but why would it only play select blueray and not all blueray? When everything IS this region code and HAS played on it before?

@Zondervanaxle
It could be struggling with dual layer discs. On the inner ring of the bottom of the disc, you should be able to find the disc type. BVSS are single layer discs, BVDL are dual layered.

Take it with a pinch of salt, but there's a good chance that the laser is on it's way out if it is struggling to read dual layered discs.
