Ps3 not reading disc..Please help

Do you see the little clock like icon in the top right corner of the screen when you first insert a disc the loading disc icon? if so then it could either just be the drive itself or a software issue in which case you can try a few things before replaceing the drive.

First just reset to factory default settings under system settings.

P.S. i assume its not reading any kind of disc if it isnt reading anything also double check to make sure the disc you are using are still good and not just really dirty or scratched. GIve us more info and what disc your trying to check so we can further help you out.

You can try the auto-diagnosis. heres how
Auto-Diagnosis (PlayStation 2 system) 1. Turn on the system without a disc inside. 2. Once at the Main Menu, press the triangle button to enter the Version Information Screen. 3. Highlight the "Console" option, and then press the triangle button again. 4. Next, press the X button, highlight "On", and then press the X button once more. 5. Now press the circle button twice to return to the Main Menu. 6. Press the eject button on the front of the console, and insert a disc. 7. Now close the disc tray, but DO NOT reset the system. 8. Highlight the Browser option from the Main Menu, and then press the X button. 9. In the Browser, an icon of the disc should appear on the screen. Highlight this icon, and then press the X button to read the disc. 10. If the auto-diagnosis is successful, the disc should load properly at this point. NOTE: The auto-diagnosis feature will return to "Off" the next time a disc is inserted.
or try cleaning the lens and games
