SOURCE: Demo Mode Playstation 3
In security settings press and hold select + square + L1 and L2
than enter 1 of these following codes depending on your version number
1.5x code: 5202
1.6x code: 7568
1.7x code: 0506
1.8x code: 7712 or 7259
and the ps3 will be unlocked from demo mode!
but be aware that this will only be for a couple of minutes.
so make sure you have the latest firmware the not demo one but the ordinary from the playstation site on a removable storage media
something like a memory stick or flash drive
so you can update immediately after unlocking you ps3! only this way you can completely unlock your system

Please check the region code on the BD or DVD. It should match the region code set in the system. Otherwise the disc will not play

There is a major problem right across the board at this very moment with the PSN Network, whereby some consoles are not synching properly and causing problems like you describe.
For a full breakdown please see this FixYa Tip.
If the solution helps, please leave a vote for it. Thanks.

SOURCE: my ps3 wont play any
As far as I know there is no notice of a firmware update causing a PS3 not to read any BRD. At most, some of the older firmware update caused the PS not reading some BRD. I think that the advice of downgrading firmware was unfounded, as often happens here where there is no control on source credit.
If firmware is 3.5 or later, you do not do to do any update. This firmware versions support any BRD.
To check the version of system software, go to Settings(the icon with the toolbox) > (System Settings > [System Information]. The information is shown in the [System Software] field.
If your firmware is older, update the firmware to the latest release. I suggest to update the software using the PS3 internet connection rather than download from PC. If you use Internet download, ensure thatyou download the right firmware for your region. Here the page for US. You do not need to select region or software version if you use PS3 connection to perform the update.
To find the update for your region, type "Sony PS3 Software Updates" in Google box.
Althought some older firmware is available on the Internet, I suggest NOT downgrading the PS3 system software. This for three reasons.
1)Downgrading to versions before 3.5x (quite recent) will reduce PS3 capabilities, and some new game may not be played unless you update again through the game.
2)There is no mention about this problem getting solved by downgrading PS3 firmware. Not from techs posting on the Internet, nothing from Sony either. Only firmware mention is from uninformed users in forums, nobody mentioned the downgrade fixed the problem.
3)The PS3 will update again by itself if needed (eg. through a game).
The easiest way to update is to downloading the update on the PS3 itself. Go to Settings menu, and find System Update. Select to Update the PS3 via Internet. The PS3 will automatically check for updates. If an update is found the PS will start the update, the process will be almost automatic.
When download is complete press X button and start installing the update. After install is complete you will be asked to perform some more steps. Follow the on-screen instructions to complete the update.
To update from PC, use the link above, and click the Download Now button . Put the update on a flash memory card. Make a New Folder called PS3, inside PS3 make a folder called UPDATE (in all capitals). Store the Update file you downloaded and into the UPDATE folder. Use the USB memory on PS3 and perform the update selecting the file you downloaded.
This method can also be used to download and install older firmware.
Now....ABOUT YOUR PROBLEM.
Some older firmware version also caused the problem shortly after update, but that was back in 2008, with versions 2.3x. Problem was fixed updating firmware again in one week, rather than downgrading.
If problem occurred shortly after an update, do a new update, just in case.
The problem is indeed common, and rather than by firmware , it is usually caused by wrong power to laser beam. In some case by dirty lens . I suggest calling Sony, and insisting that you did not damage your PS3, sometimes Sony decides to carry the repair. If they do not carry the repair, the technicians usually replace the whole driver. DIYers may take apart the PS3 to clean the lens or to adjust the laser (this last is rather difficult, as it can't be done tweaking a single pot, like in Xbox).
Performing this last actions will invalidate warranty, and there is chance to damage the PS if you do not do things proper way. Do this only if you have no hope to repair the PS. Here how to do a basic lens cleaning.
Do a firmware UPDATE and CALL SONY as first step. If you can't get PS3 repaired try cleaning lens. If all that does not work, then the optical drive must be replaced.
