Its the latest update that screws peoples ps3's up badly...

i got the exact same problem... it simply stopped reading disks, or if im really patient i can load games, but then i have to eject and insert it a trillion times. so my advise is to hang in untill sony release a new update.

I know alot would say that its your lens you need to have replaced, but i really dought that, since a ton of people got this problem after updating their system with the latest update. atleast try to call sony and hear what they have to say, but im sure that they will say that you can send it to them and then they gonna charge you a fee for that, probaly about 150$.

so hang in there bud :) like i am... im deffently not going to waste money on a new lens or by sending it to sony, atleast not before they have release one more update to see if it want to work again.

anyways... that was my 5cent :) i hope you can use it, atleast you know now that you arent alone with this prob :)

i suggest trying blu rays, dvds, and ps2 games to see if the laser is bad. if none play, you will have to have it serviced by sony. this can cost $150 if your playstation is not under warranty

PS3 won't play games (tried multiple games and none of them shows up) but plays DVDs fine.

PS3 plays only original games since de lens can read only those. So i suggest you should try with an original CD..

PS3 won't play games, but plays dvds.

You might want to buy a cleaning disk, I'm assuming that the child had got something on the game and it was loaded and now the lens is dirty. Try that first.

My console has just stopped reading disks.

if it doesnt play any games this could possibly be that your laser is shot.if you play lots of dvds sometimes that burns the laser out.or if its been dropped it could just simply need adjusted.
