You could try sending it back to sony and having them replace it, but if you are willing to try fixing it on your own ( and voiding your waranty, which you should only do if it is expired anyways) you can unscrew it and try to clean the laser yourself.
the warranty should still be good and there is an explanation: http://sony-play-station-3.blogspot.com/search/label/PROBLEM-SOLUTION

if you still want to try and fix it yourself you can find a number of guides online such as http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7O-8NzYHr80

basically: 1) open the case by removing case screws 2) open dvd drive by removing those screws ( be careful, there is a data cable that is somewhat short, if you disconnect it remember to reconnect it afterwards) 3) take a q-tip and a drop of water or rubbing alcohol and gently swab the laser 4) close everything the way it was before

My video is distorted, what can i do to fix this? I did a system restore for my PS3 console and when it restarted, the video is distorted and i can not read anything.


the lazer builds up dust and decree on the lazer lens this makes it harder for the lazer to read the unscripted information on the disc. much like a torch bean being covered with a cloth the fix is simple you need to purchase a lazer disc cleaner it looks and works just like a normal dvd disc but it has brushes on it that when put through the player brushes the dust of the laser lens this needs to be done on a regular bases to keep your lazer working to its optimum level and hense fixing your problem.

I do see that the lazer does light momentarily but does not apear to be deep blue. there is initially a red lazer that lights and goes out after which the blue lazer lights and goes out. Is this the sign...


Yes you need a new laser. The red beam should come on and go off only if its a blu ray disc or ps3 game then the laser will go to a blue beam and from there it should read the ps3 game or blu ray. If a dvd movie is in it the laser should light up red beam and read the dvd.

Isnt reading games


it Depends on the model but usually this happens because of dust or dirt on the lens so a cleaner may help. although if that doesn't work it means the laser has gone bad, which is a common problem with ps3's. Some newer models of ps3 have dual lasers so if the blu-ray laser fails you wont be able to play blu -ray disc (games, movies) but the other laser will still read dvds (non blu ray) and cds
