It's a Sony defect with the blu-ray lasers. They only last 1-3 years with average use. If your PS3 is less than a year old and you still have the original receipt Sony will repair the problem for free. Otherwise they're going to charge you $150 for the repair. You can reach them at: 1-800-345-SONY

Unless you have a technical background in electronics there's nothing I would suggest doing. A firmware update and or CD /DVD cleaner disk will do nothing for your problem. I've fixed more than 100 PS3's with this exact problem so I know exactly what I'm talking about.

i guess it's a problem with your Hard Disk . please try the following :
  • re-updating your system by an USB device (download the update from sony ps3 website)
  • reinstalling all game data files
  • restoring your system (don't forget to backup all your important files such as game saves !!)
