Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console
This is a common problem on the PS3 unfortunately and is caused by a faulty blue-ray drive. Unit will have to go back to Sony for service.
You should try a DVD cleaning disk first to be sure that dirt on the laser lense is not causing the issue.
You can also open the case and clean the laser lense with a Q Tip and an alcohol cleaning solution.
If you plan on opening the case at any stage please ensure the unit is disconnected from its power supply.
If this fails and you are confident with electronics there are several videos on YouTube showing how to replace the drive if you choose to order it and do it yourself.
See an example below.
Hope this helps. Please remember to rate my answer. Many Thanks.
