Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console
If you mean it won't load from a game disc I've had this problem with mine. It was an older ps3 with a lot of hours on it. I would clean the laser lens with a q-tip and rubbing alcohol. When the lens gets too dirty it can't read the disc. I tried laser lens cleaning discs (I know they recommend not using them or touching the laser lens for that matter) they worked a couple of times but usually wouldn't. I had to disassemble my old 80gb or actually just open the case unplug 2 connections from the disc player and remove it. Then take the metal case off the disc player. DO NOT pop the disc player completely apart! The plastic gears in the drive and ejection system have to be in time. Not quite so easy to fix. With the metal case removed you can reach the lens or lenses (there are 2 one is for blue ray I believe) with a cotton swab dipped in rubbing alcohol to clean it. This worked for me at least a dozen times if not 2 dozen.

SOURCE: reads everything but ps3games
ok my friend, the blue ray laser has two high energy beams at 450nm(bluelight) and 730nm (redlight). the highpower diode on your machine im afraid has failed. The bluray light reads bluray games and bluray dvd's. the lower power red light reads audiocds and regular dvds/dvdrs. you need to install a new laser ..only 100 i charge or 160 from sony (150+TAX+2 week wait+frustration from not playing COD4)
Now if you have the newer model laser KES410ACA, then you have 2 SEPARATE light sources...these tend not to fail as often
