Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console
The diode that emits the Blu-Ray laser has gone bad. This is common and Sony should replace it for free. Thanks.

Hi Binma1990, Your best bet on getting this fixed is to go to Gamestop store and get a DVD cleaning disc kit. This in many cases will work to clean the lens of the laser without opening the PS3 and voiding the warranty. Follow the instructions on the kit in detail to get best results. If you have no luck there and are not comfortable opening the PS3, the playstation Clinic can help. Contact Repairtech@playstationclinic.com

SOURCE: 60gb ps3 wont play ps3 games
The issue is the laser (actually has different diodes for blu ray, ps2 format and regular DVD.
Seems like in your case the only one that is burnt is the blu ray.
Send it back to Sony for repairs or if you do not have warranty purchase a replacement lens and install it yourself.

ok right so your ps3 wont read disks huh well first of all id like to say this has happened to me twice and it has worked perfectly for me and i quarentee it will work for you ...
first save all your data to a memory stick
secondly go to settings, system settings, and format your ps3 by clicking on full format this will delete all your filles :( but will refresh your ps3
BTW this formatting thing will take atleast 4 hours so just leave your ps3 on and chill out watch t.v or something :)
hope this helps
