SOURCE: my ps3 wont read any disk.
Hi, the problem you have is an internal one, the drive laser head does not seem to be reading the discs you may need to get the console replaced, or get the laser head cleaned, it may be a dirty laser head or a damaged one. If you can replace the laser head or drive yourself then it may work out cheaper for you.
Hope this has helped.

replace the drive or optical unit you will be glad you did. Another tip never play blue ray movies unless you want to keep replacing the drive as it puts wear on the laser and servo motor get a blue ray for you movies leave this to the gamming only my advice! please give me a good review you will be glad you did!

This is the 2nd most common problem
with PS3's. This isn't a bad problem. Your laser/lens will need to be
replaced. Do you see the time clock in the top right corner going
around and around? If so, you are just having laser/lens problems. If
you do not see the time icon spinning when you insert a disc, your
PS3's Blu Ray drive controller board has gone bad and you will need
to send it to Sony and not a
3rd party technician. Certain problems
are only repairable by Sony. Good luck.
I cannot speak on the downloaded games going black at this point.
Change your laser, get your system back reading disc, then try the downloaded games again. If you still are experiencing the problem, please post again.
