PS3 is The amazing device. by Sony but it has some common problems like sound
problem, video problem etc.... Good news is that these all problems can be
repaired with the help of DIY Guides, one such guide available at PS3 Repair Blog.

I'd try, firmware update and a system restore, but if that doesn't work it's probably:
defect with the blu-ray lasers. They only last 1-3 years with average
use. If your PS3 is less than a year old and you still have the
original receipt Sony will repair the problem for free. Otherwise
they're going to charge you $150 for the repair. You can reach them at:
Unless you have a technical background in
electronics there's nothing I would suggest doing. A firmware update
and or CD /DVD cleaner disk will do nothing for your problem. I've
fixed more than 100 PS3's with this exact problem so I know exactly
what I'm talking about.
ok as you know the ps3 uses blu laser technology but they still use a red laser as well ps2 dvd cd psone all use red and you know which use the blu so problem with that means that your blu laser went out. you can fix this yourself its real simple takes about 10 min and $80 or pay sony $200 message back if you want to know how
does this only happen with CoD4? If so you may have a faulty disk. Goto your local blockbuster and rent CoD4 and see if it does the same thing. If it does, you need to RMA your ps3 877-253-SONY and request a RMA.
you may need a new cd Drive thats what read the games , try them games in antother xbox 360 console and see what happens if the same problem happens its obvious that its your games , if they work it will be the cd drive hope i helped , thanks
we just took our ps3 apart and tinkered with the parts and cleaned out the dust and it started working again!!!! and it only took three hours.....i suggest buying an intercooler and watch getting any liquids (especially cleaning products) within 50 feet of a playstation.
