Well the harddrive is corrupt same thing happened to mine. this happened because while you were playing a game or watching a film you probably moved the console which damages the harddrive but there is no way you can fix it you either send it to sony which would cost a fortune because its in america and there is a risk of it getting lost or damaged in the post or you type in ps3 repair in google and click on the first one.

My PS3 will not play games, only movies.

Short answer its a ..... to fix. Theres multiple lasers in the disc drive that actually read the disc. The blue laser failed. Replacing the drive wont work unless you can reprogram the eeprom chip (or is it nand?) At any rate its just better to upgrade to a new console.
