It has something to do with the circuit inside, maybe the blu-ray lens reader laser got weak, the blu-ray diode just got busted there are tons of possibility the best thing you can do is that call the manufacturer and have them take a look

Can't read any disck. doesn't even seem to recognize a disc is there


You have no choice other than contacting Sony and sending it in. Its worth it if you have the 60gb model, which is the highest value of all models, due to true backwards and full features.

PS3 does not see disk


  • Like the 360, the PS3 also has problems.  This problem is known as the SoD (spin of death). In this the lens of your PS3 stops working. Sony is the best one that can help for this kind of error. Best to stick with them, or if your retailer has an exchange policy, ask for a new PS3. But my local dealer fixes this up for 125$. 
  • IMPORTANT - DO NOT OPEN YOUR CONSOLE YOURSELF AS THE WARRANTY THAT SONY PROVIDES WILL THUS BE VOID!!!

PS3 won't recognize media, i.e. DVDs, games


So your DashBoard doesn't even come up at all? What happens when you turn the PS3 on with the game inside of it? Try using a lens cleaner to see if it is perhaps your laser that is being blocked by dust or something. If nothing works you may need to reload the PS3 Operating System (OS).
