I am afriad it sounds like your blu ray laser has become faulty. Unfortunately this is a very common problem for the PS3 and there is not much that can be done about it. New lasers can be bought but they are difficult to fix. You could buy a new drive from somewhere like ebay at a cost of around £60. They are much easier to fit than the lasers themselves but you must make sure you keep the circuit board on your blu ray drive and swap it to the replacement drive as this is paired to the motherboard and will not work if it is not with the original motherboard.

Hope this helps

Not reading the discs unable to play any games,but can play the demos


big problem with the early models was a cheap blue ray player.
try putting a blue ray movie in, if it plays its a software issue and reformat the ps3.
if it doesn't you have a dead blue ray player.
send it into sony's referbish program $150.00 and they send you another ps3 so get any data you want to keep off the ps3 before sending it in.

My blue ray player wont read any discs


that means that your laser is broke they probably made a coding error on the program when they made that one and the awful sound your hearing is the little motor that makes the laser go back and forward there is probably a gear broke in it also.
