I had simillar problem with my PS3, after weeks of search and trying 10 of solutions from blogs and boards, I was unable to fix, then I found this Ps3 repair guide which finally solved my problem, I was also able to fix Beep Blink problem in my cousins PS3.
Well worth the money, I am planning to open a repair shop lol jk :)

SOURCE: playstation 3 keeps crashing
two problems. 1) not reading games or movies is due to a bad laser. It needs to be replaced depending on the model it will take a kes-400aaa(60,80gb and some 40gb) or kes-410a all newer ps3's use this laser. 2) Crashing online can be due to the system over heating. Make sure the system is horizontal never stand them up verticle this causes serious cooling issues. Also these units do get filled with dust and animal hair which cloags the vents. I have noticed that the ps3 runs much hotter when a wireless internet connection.

I know the feeling, i just been through the same issue after i updated my ps3 to latest update (3.01).
sadly i didnt have any warrenty left so i had to replace the laser unit myself.
So if you still have warrenty left have it send into sony's service.
if no warrenty left, then you can replace the laser unit like i did, and you should be fine again.
if your not up for the task to replace it yourself then im sure theres a workshop near you that do these kinds of replacements/repairs.

I will advice you clean the lens of your ps3 player, cleaning the lens of the ps3 player will make the ps3 player read the disc, if the problem is not solve after cleaning the lens, it means, you will need to replace the lens on your ps3, the lens might be weak that it can no longer read any disc or play any game. the two options above should fix the problem of your ps3.
