Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console
You can get the assembly for around $140 from the likes of gamerepairworld.com
There are some good videos on youtube on how to replace the drive - see example here - this guy also sells them on ebay which is another good place to have a look at prices.
Hope this helps - please do rate this answer.

Yes the disc reading problem on the PS3 is massive!
Let me run through what is going on and how you can fix it:
It is the laser that needs readjusting in order to fix this problem. The good news is that the drive will still work as long as you readjust the laser in most cases - so you don't need to replace the drive!
You can send it in for Repair and they will fix it for you - although this will cost about $150 in a repair bill and you can expect to wait for about 4 weeks to get your console back.
It is possible to fix the PS3 games reading error from home because as mentioned above all you are doing is readjusting the laser.
