SOURCE: playstation 3 doesn't read discs
while you were playing a game or watching a film, if you move the console while there is a game in there and the console is on, then it corrupts the harddrive thats what happened to me but if it is switched off and you move it then it does not matter nothing will happen but just type in ps3 repair in google and click on the first one and the company will fix it for you for £80 and you will have to pay extra £10 to them for when they send it back and it will propably cost you another £20 to send to them in the first place. but if you send it off to sony it will cost quite a lot as you will have to send it to america and there is a chance of it getting lost or damaged in the post.

If the warranty is still intact, Sony can fix it. If not, open the ps3, open the blu-ray drive and clean the laser. If that doesnt work, replace the laser.

SOURCE: playstation 3 keeps crashing
two problems. 1) not reading games or movies is due to a bad laser. It needs to be replaced depending on the model it will take a kes-400aaa(60,80gb and some 40gb) or kes-410a all newer ps3's use this laser. 2) Crashing online can be due to the system over heating. Make sure the system is horizontal never stand them up verticle this causes serious cooling issues. Also these units do get filled with dust and animal hair which cloags the vents. I have noticed that the ps3 runs much hotter when a wireless internet connection.
