First off, I'd like to start off by saying sorry if this question has been asked before. Anyways, just today, my PS3 apparently decides to stop reading discs... This morning, I was playing a game, and it was working fine, and later on in the day when I turned the PS3 on again, no disc logo came up.. I tried inserting PS2 games, and DVDs none of which show up, however I noticed that when I inserted it the loading icon still appeared in the top right hand corner. Also, I don't think the disc is spinning... Could someone please tell what exactly is wrong, and how to fix it?

i'm sorry you've got the YLOD issue :(
to get the disc out you may try this:
- turn off the ps3 with the main switch, behind the console - press the EJECT touch-key on the front, HOLD on it while you turn on the console with the main switch... keep holding the eject key, if it'll work you'll get your disc out. If it won't work just try a couple of times more.
Other than that, the only thig to do is to get in touch with Sony technical support, but anyways don't worry you'll have your disc back.
f the Blu-ray Disc does not support 1080p 24Hz video mode, the video output may not display properly.
If a Blu-ray Disc movie is not loading properly or is freezing on a title screen, this may be caused by the PLAYSTATION 3 attempting to download BD-Live content from congested movie studio servers. If you experience this issue, you may choose to temporarily bypass the BD-Live content until the congestion at the movie studio servers has cleared.
Go to Settings icon (Settings) > Video Settings icon (Video Settings) > [BD Internet Connection], select "Confirm". Then reload the Blu-ray movie and the PLAYSTATION 3 will prompt you if you wish to allow the disc to access BD-Live content. Choose to not access BD-Live content to see if the movie will now load.For some reason you seem to think this is a PS3 problem. Why do you think this is a PS3 problem? If you can play PS3 games, then I will say it is not a PS3 problem, as all PS3 games are on Blu-ray, and if you were having problems playing PS3 games, then that could account for the movie not working.
Since only the movie isn't working, I am going to say you have a defective Blu-ray disc. Did you just buy this movie, or have you viewed it before using the PS3? If you have never viewed it on the PS3, then the problem lies in the disc, and you need to take it back and have it exchanged.
If you have played the disc in the PS3 before (the PS3 you are having a problem with, not a different PS3 or Blu-ray player), or you still think it is a PS3 problem, then use the "Disc Troubleshooting" support page. Normally, if a Blu-ray movie will not play, it won't play at all, and it is because the Blu-ray laser has gone out. It sounds to me that the disc is bad, but this is only going on the information you have supplied.
**EDIT** Sorry, I just noticed you gave a UK link. Here is the support page for the UK. You will have to do a search on the site to find the Disc Troubleshooting page for your region.http://uk.playstation.com/support/
go to www.modchipman.com and repair sevices i used them when my xbox's were dead and they had the red ring and disc read error they can fix it in ten minutes i watched them install a new tray on mine. anyways they have your problems the disc error and freezing. $9.99 but your yellow light $99.99 the cost to see your ps3 run again.
This is a common problem so it should be a quick fix. But, depending on how many repairs the shop you are sending it to has will ultimately decide how long it will be there. Sorry to say but you may be looking at 4-6 weeks.
sorry to say but its a job for sony, call them up, there numbers on the website explain the probs your having and they will either arrange for a replacement or to repair yours. The problem your having is ti do with one of the recenct updates online. And its all sonys fault!! There replacement service is normally very good. Hope this helps
