Hi there, Most PS3 systems end up doing this due to an over heating of the laser lens. Let me explain: The laser lens in the PS3 is made to read mainly Blue Ray games. The movies need to be read faster than the game discs which causes it to work harder thus the problem arising. Sometimes, your lucky enough for this to only be a dirty lens problem due to rental movies which are most of the time, if not always, dirty. Have you tried a lens cleaner kit?
This is the CD-ROM with a small brush on it to clean your laser lens head.
This problem has happened to me in the past and this solved the problem.
It is a common problem for any lens reading console.
the eye on your ps3 might not be able to register any videogames because of the different code that the dvd but calling sony customer service can help. you might be able to get the optical eye replaced for little money and you can be playing in no time!
if your system is only 5 weeks old PS3 factory warranty covers all defects in materials and workmanship for 1 year from purchase date. there are some inclusions and exclusions which can be accessed at http://www.us.playstation.com/Support/PS3/Warranties
but if you have any implied warranties from the store you purchased it at you should hit them up first to see what they'll do for you
