This does typically sound like an chip overheating. If you have checked your discs and they are in good condition with no scratches then is would suggest that there is a graphics chip error due to being faulty or overheating. My advice is to take your PS3 to your local repair agent to be assessed correctly. Has the PS3 been chipped to play pirated games. This could have caused an issue with your PS3 as well.
If you do now want to spend money sending the PS3 into an authorised repair agent then my advice is.
1. Take your machine to your local games store and test one of thier new games on the system to confirm it is a PS3 error and not a disc error.
2. Alternatively you could hire a disc however some rental stores do not take good care of their discs and it we want to establish that the issue is console related first.
3. If the same problem occurs again then you will need to take the console to the authorised repair agent to get assessed correctly.
4. If the issue appears to be related to scratches on the discs then you will need to take them to your local rental store to have them cleaned or resurfaced.
Game discs often have much larger quantiies of data to transfer and this is why it may appear confusing as your console can still play movies ok. If there are scratches on the surface of the discs then for the same reasons as mentioned above the movies will play as there is less data passing and therefore scratches will be effecting less data than on a typical games disc.
If you have any other questions please leave a message for me and I hope this information has been helpfull.

Juan is correct, Your laser has gone bad. If your drive still takes and ejects games then you are a step ahead just means you need a laser.. It happens often Replacing the laser is very easy there are a few videos on youtube to help you... Check ebay for lasers can usually find them for 69 with free shipping.... depending on the age you probably need a KES-400A Especially if you have a 20GB or a 60Gb 90 Percent of all 40GB use that laser also but if you have a 80Gb you may need the other unless your 80GB system has 4 usb ports and is backwards compatible. If so then KES-400A is it

The problem is that this code is generic and not real specific. It used to happen to me all the time. It could mean that the disc is dirty or scratched, the lens needs cleaning or it could mean that your PS2 is being stupid not wanting to read the disc. If the disc is dirty just take some eye glass cleaner and wipe from the center to the outer edge of the disc. If it is scratched, you can take it in to be resurfaced. This usually cost about five dollars. A lens cleaner is about the same depending on where you go. You may want to invest in a can of air duster. Somtimes the dust inside it makes it go haywire.
