Sounds like the blu-ray laser has gone bad. It will definitely need to be replaced.

SOURCE: ps3 read errors

There is a fault with the laser unit in the PS3. This is similar to the PS2 DRE problems and usually replacing the laser fixes it.

SOURCE: PS3 won't recognize disks after update

You can back up ANYTHING you wish to keep via the backup utility what I'm about to tell you to do will essentially erase your harddrive. After backing up any data you wish to keep, restore your PS3 system and to a FULL ( not quick ) format of your harddrive ( this will probably take a couple of hours ). After that, if it still doesn't work call SONY.

Hope that helps..........

Replace the lens unit (KES-400 AAA).
For fflam , it sounds like the youd disk mechanism is misaligned.
Try to find a unit of ebay that is has a defective lens and replace it with your lens.

Ps3 not reading discs!


If you keep on getting this problem you will need to send it in to get it fixed, or you can actually readjust the laser from home.
To do this you can use a good repair guide.

When i put a game in my ps3 it won't read it


What makes you think the disc is not damaged? Do movies still play in your system? You probably need to run a DVD lens cleaning disc in your PS3.
