Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console
The problem is that the lens of your ps3 is either dirty or weak that it can no longer read any disc, i advice that you get a lens cleaner to clean the lens of your game, if after cleaning, problem persist, replace the lens on your ps3 so that your ps3 can continue to function as it use to function before.
Replace the lens on your ps3 and you will see that it will start reading discs.

The Blue back disc is CD format. The DVD laser circuit is giving you trouble. You can adjust the DVD pot some on the back of the Laser. Turn it about 3 degrees clockwise. Then put it the laser back in. Test the PS2 with no cover on, and use the white round disc from the laser drive cover to clamp a disc onto the spindle. Test DVD and PS2 Games that do not have Blue back.

SOURCE: won't read the discs
If this happens with all disks , then the lens are either dirty or defective.
Try first using a cleaner DVD several times.
If that does not work , then the lens may be defective, and lens pickup will need replacement.
In that case contact Sony at the numebr listed on the owners manua.

Clean the lens with a Q tip and alcohol,if you have to push down on the top of the playstation then you may need a new spindle motor. If the laser doesn't work after cleaning,then replace it either professionally or with someone who already has done it before.
If the laser doesn't move at all,or even pulsate a beam then it is surely defective,or the data ribbon to it has been disconnected.
A digital camera will be your best friend if you are a DIY'er
Positive feedback is a good return if this helps you.

This is pretty much saying your Blu Ray laser has died. You will need either a new laser or a new drive, available from lots of places, however dont throw your Blu Ray drive away if you do replace it as you need the logic board that is on the drive.

This is a problem occurring in all the play station 3 consoles....... this is mainly because of the poor quality of the disc,.....as a result it leads to the damage of ur PS3 lens..............use good original discs........the heating effect is due to the long usage of pirated discs ...
check your lens if its working good then better download this Repair Guide for further information .........
all the best..
