The Playstation 3 is a wonderful video game console, however, with heavy usage, the laser does eventually burn out. The first signs of the laser starting to burn out is that your game will start freezing during game play. Eventually the game will stop reading altogether (even though movies sometimes still work). Eventually movies will stop working and the whole laser will eventually die.
The following website sells PS3 lasers and also performs repairs:
The optical lens in your blu ray drive is going out. It needs more to play games then to watch movies and cd's. This is a very common problem with the ps3. If you want to replace it yourself, you can find many replacements for your len on eBay and you can always google a decent tutorial for step by step instructions on how to replace it. If you need any help, just ask :)
this iis quite a vague descryption
im guessing that it is a 40gb ps3, sometimes they have this problem and dont read disks, ehm if your ps3 is still in its garuntee then you should contact them and sort it out
have it switch off again,replace your dual controller with a good one,insert a game disc check if can read,if not insert a disc cleaner on cd room,after ckeanignfor a couple of minutes have put backs your cd game,if still not reading take to service center have the photo lens to adjust
if its not playing any bluray disc/games then its major trouble..you will have to contact sony for a replacement if its in the warranty period..had the same problem and customer care in India sucks..anyway hope its not something serious...are u getting any error code?
it could be the laser that reads the discs might be faulty. i have same problem i insert the disc it reads the disc but it dusnt stop reading it or recognise what it is. i think u will have to get it serviced.. thats what im going to do
