Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console
The menus it will show even if the dvd drive is bad cause its getting the information from the BIOS on the main board.
As far as getting the drive to try to read discs. Get a can of air and blow it gently into the drive. This will make sure that there is no dust or dirt interfering with the reading of the data.
After doing this try different dvds, movies, games. If you still get it to read then its either going to be a laser thats bad or the whole drive itself its bad.
You can get a laser or a drive off of ebay fairly cheap nowadays.
