First off, have you tried playing Blu-Ray movies/games instead of DVD's? If you have and only the DVD's work then it sounds like the "blu ray" part of the drive has died. In the PS3 blu ray drive there is a lens for blu ray movies/games and a seperate one for dvd/cd's. Sounds like the blu ray lens one broke. The cost for repair of this $150 dollars if not under warranty. Now before calling sony try this.
Update your firmware (if you aren't running the latest already). Yup, this overwrites some of system software that may have been corrupted.
First, back up your game saves, and any music you have on your HDD. Format the PS3! Yup, again this fixes corrupted files on the HDD by forcing the PS3 to rewrite them.
Buy a Blu-Ray cleaner and try it.
Sadly if these don't work, you will need to give Sony a call, and have that coffin mailed your way.
Restoring your system (don't forget to backup all your important files !!)
else, contact the support centre for possible hardware issues checking . it can be, unfortunatelly, a problem with your bd reader, and you will need to buy a new one if the system is not covered by warranty =/
the faint lines are nothing. its just smudging or something. the main reason why a ps3 wont play a clean bluray movie is if your system is in need of an update if you have already done that then it may be an issue to call sony with...
the PlayStation 3 can read just about any usb memory stick and play can movies from them, since a usb's bandwidth is significantly lower then the ps3 hard drive it's recommend to copy the movie to the ps3's hard drive.
also it matters how the movie was converted. some converted movies wont play on the ps3 no matter what codec your using to encode the movie with.
uh tis happened t me too i dont know why but my brother is all pissed at me and my stupid sis.dang all we did was turn off he ps3 and then ihe games didnt work. im going to call sony like now. if i find the problem i will tell u, k bye!
