My ps3 lens died the disk icon in the upper right corner would come up but it would not load games or movies I ordered and installed a new lens and tray now the disk spins up and the load icon in the upper right corner comes on (the disk icon on the left doesnt appear)but then goes away and it doesnt load games or movies disk goes in spins up can here it change position and then stops spinning and the load icon goes out eject also seems to work fine
Yup laser is done. direct replacement part # is KEM-400AAA if sent to sony the flat rate will be around 180. sucks i know. i sent mine in but it comes back with a little warranty. repairing yourself is pretty hard ive done it. hope that helps.

This is the 2nd most common problem
with PS3's. This isn't a bad problem. Your laser/lens will need to be
replaced. Do you see the time clock in the top right corner going
around and around? If so, you are just having laser/lens problems. If you would like to perform this task yourself, you can access youtube and search for 'ps3 laser disassembly.' I personally wouldn't recommend it. Find yourself a good reputable ps3 technician and pay them the money rather than SONY.
you do not see the time icon spinning when you insert a disc, your
PS3's Blu Ray drive controller board has gone bad and you will need
to send it to Sony and not a
3rd party technician. Certain problems are only repairable by Sony. Good luck.
