Hi Binma1990, Your best bet on getting this fixed is to go to Gamestop store and get a DVD cleaning disc kit. This in many cases will work to clean the lens of the laser without opening the PS3 and voiding the warranty. Follow the instructions on the kit in detail to get best results. If you have no luck there and are not comfortable opening the PS3, the playstation Clinic can help. Contact

PS3 80g only plays DVDs and PS2 games .... help

The reason why DVDS still work and the blu-rays don't is because it's a three part laser. dvd / cd / blu-ray.

The blu-ray portion almost always goes out first.

Ps3 won't play game or certain dvds

Ok go out and get a cd cleaner.
Should take care of it IF ITS DUST>
It costs 7-10$ and if it fixes your issue then you save a bunch!
If not you will need to make sure Sony's warrenty is not valid and its not if you dont have the recipet.
You can take it apart and instal a new blu ray unit or send it to sony for 150$ plus s&h.
I have blu ray parts if you need them.

PS: what size is the ps3? 20-40-60-80 gb hd?
