Your ps3 blu ray diode is burnt out.
Very common with ps3, expecialy in the older versions.
Replacements can be found on e-bay if you are past warrenty and
are cheaper then the 150$ price tag sony charges
so if your willing to do it yourself, look up
kes-400aaa on ebay.com
and also heres a video of how to swap out drives and open the ps3 up
and here is one how to open the blu ray player
hope this helps

You most likely have the updated drivers. You may have to go and change a setting. I found an answer on the PS3 website that may be of some use to you. I hope this helps you: http://boardsus.playstation.com/playstation/board/message?board.id=ps3&message.id=1662191 From the site: "go to bd/dvd setting and set the "108024hz" option off"

SOURCE: PS3 laser Problem
It sounds like you bought a defective laser or it is the chip on your "sister board". There is a chip on the circuit board thats on the bottom of the Blu-Ray drive and it has a silver rectangle on it. Some say that that chip is going bad on some machines. I have repaird 60+ PS3's this year and I haven't had this happen to me yet though. I would suggest trying another laser, then if that doesn't work try a "sister board" from the same model of PS3. I'm still not possitive if that is a possible solution though. The "sister board" is supposedly keyed to only work with the mother board it came with. Well, I hope this helps. Good luck!!
