Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console
This is a very common problem on the Ps3 and is the first sign that your Bluray drive is malfunctioning.
Sometimes you can resolve it by gently cleaning the lens with a Q-Tip and isopropyl alcohol but most often the lens itself will need replacing.
I have included this excellent walk-through on how you can do this yourself. Please be sure the console is disconnected from the mains supply before carrying out any of this type of work.
Otherwise the unit will have to be returned to Sony who generally replace the whole drive unit including the lens. Cost from Sony is $150 to make the repair.
Thanks for using FixYa
