Hi my PS3 will play downloaded games but nothing on disc. You stick in the disc and there is nothing - you dont even hear the disc whiring round. Everything else looks normal but typically the warrenty ran out last month. I'm at a loss with this, any help would be appreciated. Cheers

First you need to verify that all types of discs won't read. there are 3 types that a ps3 will play CD, DVD and BluRay. If none of them work then your laser is either dirt and needs to be cleaned or is bad. If say dvd and cd works than the BluRay part of the lens needs to be calibrated which requires takign the system apart an voiding warranties.
It's a Sony
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.
The best way to play burned movies is to copy them onto a memory stick or external hard drive then copy them onto the ps3 i use this method and find the movies play in much higher quality than dvd-r or+r or whatever discs you use
