Friend's PS3 had the same problem. His unit is no longer under Sony's warranty so I've recently fixed his by buying a replacement laser lens from Ebay. It roughly cost about 50-65 US dollars, depending on whether you order the lens only or one with a deck; you will need to replace the old one with the new one. However if your unit is till under Sony's warranty, i suggest sending it back to them for repairs.

    Before you go ahead and buy a replacement lens, I would first suggest you call Sony and have them troubleshoot the problem for you. It could solve your problems and save yourself money if they are able to help you fix it over the phone.

How can i get my ps3 to play ps2 games


thats because sony was *** and stopped making ps3's that could read ps2 discs. so in other words you cant. the said "they didnt see it was fit for it to have to play games." a load of **** i say! they were just losing money for having a blueray, dvd, and ps2 reading machine. so they decided to take out ps2 and not dvd? i dont get it cause we can rip dvd's to play as a video file, and then play it from that. sony doesnt think right i dont think, sorry. but you are out of luck

Our guitar hero world tour wont work on my daughters ps2


the reason is that the disc is multilayered because the game is so large and because most ps2's are by now 3+ years old the reading lens is dusty/dirty so cant read the 2nd layer of information so rejects it as a disc. this can be sorted by cleaning the lens with the special lens cleaning discs or some other cleansing agent. ask a local electronics store for help
