    Hey Rizzla,

    Same problem here!

    Yep, just happened to me last night! Froze in the middle of a game, and now won't read any discs (regular or blu-ray movies, or games). Will try lens cleaning tonight but machine is literally only 5 weeks old!

    PS3 has been working great for 9 days. During gameplay of Rainbow 6, system froze up. Game was powered off, then back on and now it will not read any games. Reset system, system restore, powered off, disconnected power supply, nothing worked.

If your system is only 5 weeks old PS3 factory warranty covers all defects in materials and workmanship for 1 year from purchase date. there are some inclusions and exclusions which can be accessed at
but if you have any implied warranties from the store you purchased it at you should hit them up first to see what they'll do for you

My PS3 will not play games, only movies.

Short answer its a ..... to fix. Theres multiple lasers in the disc drive that actually read the disc. The blue laser failed. Replacing the drive wont work unless you can reprogram the eeprom chip (or is it nand?) At any rate its just better to upgrade to a new console.
