Re: games not loading
A problem that occours with all laser products is the laser on the console has pritty much had it, once a laser stops reading discs or only part reads other discs u can safly bet that the laser is dying, there is 1 or 2 small variable pots on all lasers this is used to adjust the line and strength of the laser you can turn these but at a risk you can kill the laser altogether SO DO SO AT OWN RISK! The variable pots will turn both ways (left and right) but getting them better or worse is just luck without equiptment to help you get it correct!
this is also a temp solution once a laser has started to show age it will die altoghter.

I have the same problem. My PS3 stopped reading any bluray discs. The spinning circle in the top right corner will come on for a few seconds when a disc is inserted, but then nothing. I found a work-around to get it to read discs though. You have to have a bluray disc in the drive (game or movie) and start a downloaded game or Playstation Home. Once the game or Home loads, hit the PS button on the controller. The crossbar menu will pull up and you will notice the disc icon will (magically) pop up. Click the quit game icon. Once you are out of the downloaded game or Home the disc icon will still be there. You can then load the game or disc. The icon will remain there until you eject the disc, so you will have to repeat this every time you want to load a game. Although this is a workaround to prevent Sony from gouging you for $150+, this is still not a fix. A fix would be for Sony to admit they have a money making firmware problem and fix it. This fix will only work if you don't have an actual hardware failure (which I apparently don't). I think a class action lawsuit is in order for everyone that has this problem and especially for those who have shelled out the money to fix something that is firmware related. I'm sure Sony will only fix the firmware to make this workaround not work anymore so as not to lose their little cash flow scheme.
its a hardware error and you need to call Sony and get the console repaired/replaced..i had the same problem and had to get the bluray mechanism replaced..resetting the console etc etc doesnt help...hope u get urs running ASAP!regards!
