    Same exact problem I'm having. Everything on the PS3 works, except it doesn't read discs.

    What's that number to call?

My ps3 won't load games or dvds, so i got a friend of mine to do some research. turns out thousands of gamers have the same problem. its got to do with the laser reading the discs. apparently there is a number that you can call and you give your ps3 serial number then in a couple of days someone will pick it up and replace your console! i'll check it out first thing when i got some time. good luck

Warranty warranty warranty. Dunno what could cause it, I think if u turn power off whilst something is saving or its accessing the hard drive it can break it, send it back tho.

also make sure before you do send it back that It isnt overheating make sure the ventilation is not blocked and away from heat sources

Error code 80010516 for my ps3 what can I do

well, last night i bought FF13 and about halfway through the game i saved and then the game froze. after that it wouldnt read anything, even regular dvds. We called Sony twice and they only said to pay $150 to fix the problem, they gave us no other advice. we have tried everything you can possibly think of, re-formatting the hard drive to scanning for corrupted files, nothing works. we decided to try one more time this morning after leaving the ps3 off all night, we put LBP in and an eror code popped up on the screen "80010516" is there anyway to repair this so i dont have to pay $150-399 for a new ps3??

Wont play dvds games blu rays anything, was fine last night, today nothing...looks like it isnt recognising data

This can be caused by a dirty laser in the drive. Try cleaning the laser with a q-tip and alcohol. If this does not fix the problem, the laser may need to be replaced. Contact Sony and see if the unit is still under warranty.
