Ps3 problem:Not reading discs all of a sudden

I have been reading that some people have been having the same problem that I have with their ps3 not reading any type of disc whether it be a game or a movie. The funny thing is I used it earlier in the day and it worked fine. Then I just turned it on again a little while ago and the game loaded fine but before I started playing I decided to update the ps3 and after the update it wasn't reading my games or movies, so I kinda believe that it has to do with the update. Any other thoughts or advice?

You know what? I've been getting that same feeling. When I googled this problem, it seems either it's not happening to Americans, or we're just not complaining about it loud enough!. The European PS forum was chock FULL of complaints about ALL the issues that we've been seeing here. But it's too late to tell folks here about the possible issues one might have from DL'ing the latest PS3 update. Because they're already experiencing them. And even if Sony creates a patch to fix these issues, most folks can't even turn on their consoles on to recieve the patch.
As for advice... I'm not really sure. How can you continue gaming if you do not "update"? This, my friend, is just another great mystery of the modern world.

Ps3 does not read dvd or cd discs


It needs a new laser because the old one is "burnt out". It's a really common problem with them.

I buy mine at http://parts.consolerepairguy.com they run about $75 each.

I run a repair business and that place has best prices aside from Hong Kong which I don't trust.
