SOURCE: ps3 not reading disc
the Diode in the PS3 units actually has 3 diodes built in. Looks like your blu ray one went bad the other 2 still function.
Order a replacement KEM-400 AAA and replace it (the whole laser lens mechanism with deck). If you still have warranty send it in.

SOURCE: disc reading
could be dirt on Blu-ray lens
To allow the drive to read 25GB worth of info, the Blu-ray lens is placed very close to the disc surface
-somewhere between 0.1 and 0.3 millimeters. Here's the potential problem. The Blu-ray disc is coated with Zircon, a substance almost as tough as diamond. When the disc heats up it could undergo warping. Since the Zircon is stiffer than Al Gore, the disc can only warp downwards towards the lens.
"Guess what happens when you run Zircon over glass at 2000rpm?" asks Jim. The heart-stopping answer: you're going to need a new Blu-ray lens. What does that mean to PS3 gamers? "Who can say? To be honest, I'd expect any drive or disc to fail in some way if it was being rattled about whilst trying to run and the Xbox 360 is a prime example, " says Jim. "But it'll be interesting to see how the PS3 is treated by the public when in use and to see what errors are thrown up by the Blu-ray drives. As I said, the tolerances in the Blu-ray system unlike HD DVD, don’t leave much room for 'user error.'"
