Was watching blu ray last night and the game froze. restarted unit and wouldn't load movie. put game in, and it read the disc, then froze while loading. wouldn't load the game or tell me invalid disc. then it won't load anything or it will go to the default screen of the p3 (when no game is inserted) and won't recognize the disk. everything works other than that.

Hi there, Most PS3 systems end up doing this due to an over heating of the laser lens. Let me explain: The laser lens in the PS3 is made to read mainly Blue Ray games. The movies need to be read faster than the game discs which causes it to work harder thus the problem arising. Sometimes, your lucky enough for this to only be a dirty lens problem due to rental movies which are most of the time, if not always, dirty. Have you tried a lens cleaner kit?
This is the CD-ROM with a small brush on it to clean your laser lens head.
This problem has happened to me in the past and this solved the problem.
It is a common problem for any lens reading console.
the blue ray laser has two high energy beams at 450nm(bluelight) and
730nm (redlight). the highpower diode on your machine im afraid has
failed (due to the extreme heat conditions in ur PS3). you need to install a new laser ..only 100 i charge or 160 from
sony (150+TAX 2 week wait)
Now if you have the newer model laser KES410ACA, then you have 2 SEPARATE light sources...these tend not to fail as often
we just took our ps3 apart and tinkered with the parts and cleaned out the dust and it started working again!!!! and it only took three hours.....i suggest buying an intercooler and watch getting any liquids (especially cleaning products) within 50 feet of a playstation.
