It could be 2 things.

1. You need to clean your lens.
2. Your lens is dead, and you would need to get it replaced.

How to Fix a Scratched CD


Clean the disc. Even if a CD isn’t actually scratched or scuffed, dust, oil, and other surface contaminants can prevent it from playing properly. Thus cleaning the disc should always be your first move. Ads by Google

  • Run warm water over the damaged disc to remove dust.
  • If there is stubborn dirt or grease on the disc, gently rub it with your finger while you are washing it, and use a gentle detergent or liquid soap (with the water) or rubbing alcohol (in place of water). Any time you rub or wipe a CD, you should do so by starting at or near the center of the disc and rubbing straight outward toward the edge to prevent further scratching.
  • Shake the water off and let the disc air-dry (do not dry it with a towel or cloth, and don't sun-dry it either).
  • 2Try to play the disc. Many times a good cleaning is all that is needed. If, however, problems persist after cleaning, try to play the disc in a different CD player. Some players handle scratches better than others; computer CD drives and car stereos tend to be the best.
  • 3Burn a new disc. If you can get the CD to work in one CD player - especially your computer’s - but not in others, try burning a new disc. The CD burner on your computer may be able to read the CD well enough to produce a perfect copy. You may wish to try this even if the CD doesn’t play correctly on the computer.
  • 4Locate the scratch. Actually repairing the disc will be easier if you can figure out where the offending scratch is. Visually inspect the CD’s playing surface for scratches or scuffs. Scratches that run perpendicular to the CD’s spiral - that is, those that run generally from the center to the rim - may

    My ps3 shuts down exactly at the same point on one game every time, any ideas


    Does it do this on any other games? Sounds like a scratched disc, try cleaning the disk itself.

    The fading (flare) you see could simply be a finger smudge or other stuff. One little scratch won't do it, you'd have to take sandpaper to the lens to see obvious flare.

    It's actually harder to scratch a modern lens than most people think. When it happens, it's usually during cleaning when a tiny piece of grit is on the surface and gets rubbed in by the cleaning cloth/lens tissue.

    So the first step in cleaning a lens surface is to be sure you remove all dust and dirt without rubbing. The lens cleaning kit you can find in any camera store is a start -- it contains a blower brush. With the lens surface to be cleaned facing down (so dust falls away), brush gently with the tips of the bristles to dislodge stuff. Then use the blower to blow it away. Repeat as needed.

    If you still see dust and dirt which seems to be stuck on the surface, take a piece of the lens tissue from the kit and put several drops of the cleaning solution on it, enough to get it pretty damp. (Always apply cleaning solution to the tissue or cloth, never drop directly on the lens surface.) Cover the lens surface with the damp tissue, pressing it into the corners, but do not slide the tissue across the surface. Just lift it away. Repeat with another section of tissue.

    Then take a full sheet, wad it lightly, and wet it. You are going to rub lightly, using a roll-up motion as you move the tissue so that dust/dirt is lifted away from the surface and fresh tissue is always coming in contact with the surface. Repeat as needed until there isn't any visible stuff.

    Final cleaning can be done with a fresh piece of tissue and a bit of mist from your breath. Mist the surface, and lightly polish with the tissue to remove any remaining cleaner residue.
