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 following types of discs can be played
Blue Ray Disc - Playstation No 3 format BD-ROM, BD ROM,BD-R, BD-RE
DVD - DVD-ROM, DVD+R/RW, DVD-R/RW, AVCHD, DSD disc
CD - Playstation format CD-ROM,CD-DA (Audio CD), CD-R/RW
Also Check the regional code on the disc which should be compatible with the regional codes which can be played by the PS3
okay, best thing to do is to make sure there is no dust or specs of dirt on the laser cause that is what reads the discs and loads the info.
Get a can of air and blow it gently into the drive so it gets the dust and/or dirt particles out of the way.
Now go ahead and try different games, music cd's, dvd's, etc. If it still doesnt read them then your going to need a new laser which you can search for on Ebay and get them pretty cheap and most of the people will give instructions on how to change out the laser.

oops. i think u have the so called bluray disc failure. it also happened to me awhile back. i brought it in a store and they changed the lens. but i think if its within warranty you can still return it to sony and they'll give you a refurbished one.
