Usually when this happens I check all the cables, the main fat one, and all the little brothers on the blu-ray drive board. It's probably not the motor but the replacement blu-ray drive itself. If the drive isn't working correctly the disc won't spin, no matter what. See if you can convince a friend to let you swap lasers to see if that's the problem for sure.

ok I got your problem very clear I do sell bluray drives on ebay and I do buy lasers from china but I don't sell then on ebay I use them for my own playstations I do fix then and I do sell some of then on ebay and some here where I live and let me tell you what is going on your problem is with your laser yes it still be your laser I know you replaced it but the laser you get is not a new laser no matter what the seller tell you is not new is a second hand laser from china and some lasers are like that they do play blurays but they don't play regular dvd's some they do play regular dvds but they don't play blurays or games some they do play all type of media I been lucky in getting those second hand because I have order so far 60 lasers and only 4 out of 60 are like this so what you have to do is take the laser out again and contact the person who sell it to you tell him what is going on I am sure he knows that this can happen and don't worry about getting a second hand laser because no body can get new ones exept sony thrust me I have friends in china and sony is getting the lasers from china also but they get then new and all no matter who sell then on ebay all are second hand so don't belive what they say because a lot of sellers are saying that there lasers are new and they are not if he returns your money get back to me I can get you a good one that plays everything

If the PS3 can't read the disks, the laser is the only thing that could cause the trouble. You could've scratched the laser when you cleaned it, or it could have been broken from the start. I recommend calling Sony and calling for a repair. Just hope that they will repair it for free even though you voided the warranty by opening it up.

You will need to replace your laser or clean it off with rubbing alcohol and qtip.

Tips for a great answer:
hey there boppa252001
so you have the DISK READ ERROR
to worry this can be fixed, I will give you 2 options below for the
best possible fixes.
Sony they can have this fixed within 4-6 weeks for a cost of $150 but
it is free if your still in warranty (12 months)
can repair this problem quite easily with the help of a great ps3
repair guide that many use to fix there PS3 problems themselves
within hours rather than weeks.
will soon be back up and running using any of the above options
