Question about Sony Blu-ray Remote for PlayStation 3
Mine has frozen both with DVDs and Blu-Rays. I haven't tried DVDs recently but when I did before they lasted only a couple mins. I've had my Blu-Rays lasting anywhere from 10 to 30 minutes.
I have found no solution in sight and generally refuse to send it in to Sony for 150-200 dollars (a tall tall order financially). Any ideas or do I really have to send this thing to Sony?

SOURCE: PS3 laser Problem
It sounds like you bought a defective laser or it is the chip on your "sister board". There is a chip on the circuit board thats on the bottom of the Blu-Ray drive and it has a silver rectangle on it. Some say that that chip is going bad on some machines. I have repaird 60+ PS3's this year and I haven't had this happen to me yet though. I would suggest trying another laser, then if that doesn't work try a "sister board" from the same model of PS3. I'm still not possitive if that is a possible solution though. The "sister board" is supposedly keyed to only work with the mother board it came with. Well, I hope this helps. Good luck!!

What are you saying you screw up your $600 dollar console. OMFG i mean common man. Jeez luis. Well since you have your ps3 already open your ps3 system you should open again and extract cod4 out of your blue ray drive before you hook it up and all that. So take the game out connect the blue ray drive back put the system together and power it up. See if that works.

SOURCE: Console unable to play
I had this exact problem (drive stopped reading discs, then firmware update stopped at 71% with error 8002F14E). It is not a software / firmware issue, the problem is with your Blu-ray drive. Either one of the cables connecting it to the motherboard is damaged, or perhaps there is a problem with the laser or diode. In my case, the clip attachingthe drive's ribbon cable to the motherboard had come undone. Luckily, I managed to fix it myself, and the firmware update finished smoothly after that.
If you're not comfortable with opening the console and checking out the drive yourself, you'll have to send it in for repairs (since, as I said, it is generally a hardware problem, not something you can fix by redownloading the firmware or whatever).

Check all of your settings and make sure everything is configured properly. If you made any changes to you system configuration just before this issue happened just change back to previous config and see what happens.
If everything is correct, then, unfortunately cleaning the lens is not going to help very much. This is similar to the "disc read error" on the boxy ps2. The best thing for you to do is to call sony and tell them that your blu-ray player is not working you can only read regular dvds. It has happened to a few people that I know and they were still under warranty and it was replaced. If this happens to be a common issue then maybe Sony will still replace it outside of warranty. Never know, but it is always worth a shot.

The 405 nm 10 mw blue violet laser gets whats called thermal kinks in the
optical medium .There hard to weed out in batches of KGD (Knowen Good Dies) . the
problem will arise as the laser diode cycles 400-600 times which puts it right in your-living room
when it starts failing. sound like the Laser.
