Sounds like your drive is bad.
Unplug from power for a min. Plug back in and try a couple different discs.
Plug back if still not working the PS3 will need to be taken apart for further inspection. If you are somewhat handy you can do your self.
Here is a vid to show how to take apart and replace lens.

I would take it apart so I could see the drive, if the discs are spinning I would replace the just lens, if the disc are not spinning I would replace the disc spin motor.
If it seams to much you can replace the whole drive with a new or a used one.

My PS3 does not play any disc that i put in it


Hi,

This is a very common problem with the PS3 and is caused by a problem with the laser on the Bluray drive which is malfunctioning and can no longer read the game disk.

The PS3 uses a dual laser system. This consists of either a dual refractor type lens or two entirely seperate lenses depending on which pickup is fitted to your particular system. One laser is for reading ordinary DVD disks and PS2 disks and the other for Bluray and PS3 games.

The symptoms you describe are typical of a failure of one or both of these lasers.

For more information on how to resolve the problem please view this FixYa Tip on the subject.

PS3 stopped reading PS3 games


This is most likely do to a previous freeze up while on the PS3. All you have to do is to first disconnect all of the plugs and wires. Then you put them back in and turn on the PS3. It should read your PS3 game discs.

The disk drive laser is probably bad. You most likely have to return it. Try it with a brand new disk to check if it still works. If it doesn't return it

Ps3 not reading any disks


Normally ps1-ps2-ps3 has Red laser beam lens system. So it cannot read Blue ray disks. its not possible until you change it lens system. there are some commericially available Blue laser lens system. Buy one and fix it with authorised service personnel. all the best
