there seems to be a big prob latley with ps3 lazers i was also playing cod4 online first sound went then it started to lag i quit game reloaded game wood not load all i got was top right hand corner spinning disc, now its in for reper new lazer 140 euro.psn manhunter707
That sounds like a faulty laser. Unfortunatly,Sony has not fixed this yet and i don't think they will anytime soon. I would suggest cleaning the laser lens first with alcohol and a q tip,if that doesnt work,have the laser lens professionally. If none of the above help,then it's the spindle motor and that can be tested by putting your hand on the ps3 after you slide a disk into the loading slot and feeling for very small vibrations.
I have the same problem. My PS3 stopped reading any bluray discs. The spinning circle in the top right corner will come on for a few seconds when a disc is inserted, but then nothing. I found a work-around to get it to read discs though. You have to have a bluray disc in the drive (game or movie) and start a downloaded game or Playstation Home. Once the game or Home loads, hit the PS button on the controller. The crossbar menu will pull up and you will notice the disc icon will (magically) pop up. Click the quit game icon. Once you are out of the downloaded game or Home the disc icon will still be there. You can then load the game or disc. The icon will remain there until you eject the disc, so you will have to repeat this every time you want to load a game. Although this is a workaround to prevent Sony from gouging you for $150+, this is still not a fix. A fix would be for Sony to admit they have a money making firmware problem and fix it. This fix will only work if you don't have an actual hardware failure (which I apparently don't). I think a class action lawsuit is in order for everyone that has this problem and especially for those who have shelled out the money to fix something that is firmware related. I'm sure Sony will only fix the firmware to make this workaround not work anymore so as not to lose their little cash flow scheme.
if the circle is always showing up on the top right corner of the screen and doesnt load any games that means that you laser pick up is already busted.bring it to the nearest sony workshop for a replacement.
