Certainlyit's a problem with your blu-ray reader and, if it'snotcoveredby warranty, unfortunatelly you will need to buy a new one(youcan findcheap ones in eBay =])
Please, try the following:

  • Reupdating your system firmware via USB Device (download the update from Playstation Website)
  • Restoring your system (don't forget to backup all your important files !!)
if this doesn't work ,contactSony support centre for possible hardware issues checking.

Ok your laser is bad. You need to replace it. Your laser has a blu ray diode which lights up blue and reads ps3 games and blu ray games. Then it has a red diode which plays ps2 games dvds cds ps1 games. Your blu ray diode is burned up. You will have to replace the laser its pretty simple.

My ps3 has just started to stop playing blu ray films after 20min


the laser is starting to go bad in the dvd drive. It takes more power for the drives laser to read and play a blu ray movie then it does to play a dvd game.

You can either replace the laser if you have the technical knowledge to take the dvd drive apart, or just replace the drive. You can usually find either one on ebay.

My PS3 now will not play PS3 games but still plays PS2 games


You're blu-ray drive has partially died. It's a three part laser (cd, dvd, blu-ray). The most important part of yours has died that's why you can still play dvd and PS2 games because they use the dvd laser and not the blu-ray.

Blu ray not playing on ps3


Could be an overheating issue.. Is there enough air circulation around the unit? Is it possibly dusty? try and perform minor servicing (use a can of compressed air incase if there's dust causing problems)

Does this happen on regular dvd's ?
