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 was online gaming with playstation 3 and all of a sudden, the game crashed and froze so long, i switched the power off. after that i turned the computer back on and now the play station will not read any...


Try switching the power off again, if it keeps doing the same thing then call customer support, depending on how old is your PS3 they'll just fix the optical drive at no charge. If your PS3 is really old then you can try changing your optical drive yourself, first buying one on ebay depending the model you have and then go to youtube and they have videos on how to do it yourself. It won't cost you more than $80 to buy an optical drive.

It freezes during a game when you die or load a new level


Try cleaning the disc and then cleaning the blu-ray laser using a lens cleaner. What is most likely happening is that the disc cannot be read resulting in your Playstation crashing.
