Question about Video Game Consoles & Games
I would have limit the problem to the lens on your ps3 bluray, but since you said the red led works fine with DVD in the drive, this eliminate the lens from been the problem. I will suggest you try this, 1. Turn off Playstation®3.
2. Hold the power button down; the system will turn on and turn off once again.
3. Once the System has been shutdown, re-press you finger until you hear 2 consecutive beeps
4. When you hear the 2 beeps take finger off power button.
5. You will be prompted to plug in your controller via USB and then hit the PS button
6. The Recovery menu will pop up.
The current Recovery Menu supports:
Restart System: Restarts the PLAYSTATION®3 System. Restore Default Settings: Reset all system settings back to default. Restore File System: Checks for corrupt/missing system files. Rebuild Database: Rebuilds the OS for the PLAYSTATION®3. Restore PS3 System: Fresh restore; Deletes everything and starts from Scratch. System Update: Update the PLAYSTATION®3 System. If this did not solve the problem, get a new drive.
