Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console
Hi, the only thing you can really try yourself is to go out and buy a dvd lense cleaning disk and then put this into your ps3 then hopefully this will solve your problem, if not then the chances are that your lense unit needs replacing.
The main cause of this problem is over heating so just remember never use your ps3 on carpet or use it whilst it is on top of anything else that gives off heat such as dvd player, sky box, free view etc, they tend to over heat really quick when on carpet or on top of anything else electrical. make sure all the air vents are free from dust use soft brush such as paint brush and vac to remove any dust, the fans in these dont seem to be up to the job so any slight dust build up or heat source can cause them to over heat over time.
Let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok
Many thanks for using fixya
