The Blue Ray drive will need to be replaced in this unit if its under warrenty bring it in and have it changed out otherwise you need to purchase another BD drive for this unt around $150. You can try cleaning the unit, you can try changing out the laser optics inside for cheaper but this is all if your experienced with this type of repair.

SOURCE: my PS3 froze while playing a game, now it will not

Im sorry to tell you this, but your blueray lens is dead.

if you still have warrenty left i advise you to use it, if you dont have any warrenty left you can still send it to sony's service center, or you can replace the lens yourself, wich gonna save you money and time.
you can still send it to sony's service center even if you dont have warrenty left, but this gonna cost you, about 150$, and if you did it yourself im sure it can be done for 100 or less.

My ps3 wouldn't read any cd's/dvd's or even my games


Test the dvd/games/cds in another machine (dvd player,cd player another ps3) if the games work then the problem is the discs themselves, however if they dont work, you may need to clean ur ps3 laser with a cue tip or cotton bud or replace the laser assembly all together. Good luck.

My PS3 playd cd dvd but not blue ray games


Problem with the laser it sounds like. If you still have the system apart with the dvd drive out, go ahead and replace the laser. You can usually find them on Ebay.

Ps3 keeps freezing on games only


Try using a can of air to blow out the fan area. Even though its well ventilated it may be full of dust. It sounds like an overheating issue. Also look into aftermarket fan/cooling solutions, that dont plug directly into the PS3 and have there own outlet power plug.

PS3 wont load or play games, Just a blank screen.....


Try playing a Demo game, if you dont have any download it from playstation network. The point is just to force the sytem to play games and if you notice, movies and games are listed under a different folder in the icon's list, so playing a demo game will force the system to play the game and you should be able to play your games fine after that,. Thing is that a game's info might've got stuck in freeze mode when the system was shut off unproperly while a game disk was still inside, that's all. Good luck, dont wanna see any PS3 comrades suffering the unspeakable horridness of not been able to play games. Be strong my friend.

Your PS2 is definitely broken. Either send it in to Sony to be repaired or buy a new PS3. Bummer. Sorry to hear about this.
