The laser or laser mech or both are worn out. This is a very common problem. I had to replace my laser mech in mine. My advice is to replace the laser and mech. Best website for great prices and cheap shipping is..

You can find out how to take your ps3 apart and to show you how to replace the laser mech on youtube. You will need to take it apart before you order the new part. There are 2 different laser mechs... The model code in one the laser mech its self. It will be Kem-410ACA or Kem-400AAA.

One more thing, once you replace the laser mech somtimes the cd holder I guess is what you could call it, its the where the cd sits where the laser is reading the cd with not accept the cd and jam. This is common just make sure every spring is set in the right place. There are also videos on youtube showing what to look for. Everything has to be in sync. It took me like 2 hours the get everything in sync .. But some people have no troubles at all.

Good Luck Hope It Helps

PS3 - will not read any type of disk


try getting a disc drive cleaner from any local Electronics retail store such as best buy, walmart . If that doesnt work you might have a broken optical lense and you will have to either take apart your console or call ps3 customer support and send your system to them.

Ps3 doesnt read any disk


Mine did that as well. The problem was unfortunately severe. Once my system froze for an extended period of time and the lazer actually fried itself. I had to send it to sony to fix. If you are still covered by a warranty, it would be best to send it to the company. its hell though

My ps3 wont play blue ray discs or my games anymore


if your ps3 doesnt play ANY games or dvds, that may mean that the eye on the ps3(the thing that reads the disks and dvds) is malfunctioning, not moving efficiently enough to procces the disk, not recognizing the encrypted code on the disks, or the optical eye could even be scratched. the disk feed could also not be feeding the disk in far enough for the eye to read it. i would definitly suggest calling customer service and/or bringing the ps3 to an A+ certified technition to "diagnose" your problem.
