This problem occurs when there is some problem with the laser lens, not bad/broken laser. it can be happen if the lens is unclean, e.g. dusty, hampered a piece of plastic and even hair, so the loading game is too slow, and become froze. Cleaning the laser lens, Using a Q tip with a small amount of isopropyl alcohol, gently rub the laser lens, and then use the dry end to remove excess alcohol. don't forget the guide arms that may need re-greasing, as these parts can affect the operation of the console if they are dry.

Hope this be of some help/idea. Pls post back should you need additional information...

Make sure the disc is clean and not scratched. Also, give the laser a clean using a laser cleaning disc. If you are prompted to update the game, make sure you do.

Your game is probably corrupted.
