You can try cleaning the laser lens with a cd / dvd lens cleaner cd.
This usually doesn't work, your problem is 98% of the time caused by a Sony defect in the blu-ray drive itself.
The drive will gradually get worse and worse.
If your system is under warranty then by all means get it repaired by Sony for free otherwise you're looking to pay $150 for Sony to repair their own mistake.
You can reach them @ 1-800-345-SONY
They'll probably suggest another System Restore, Firmware update and a 100 other solutions that won't work because it's hardware related.
Sorry for the bad news.
