Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console
In order to fix your PS3's Blu Ray drive you will need a set of
appropriately sized, cross-headed screwdrivers; one of those sets that
has various sizes will contain the right one, and you will probably have
one of these lying around somewhere.
Also, you will need a replacement laser lens for the Blu Ray drive, so you will need either a replacement drive from which you can "salvage" the lens, or you can purchase online part number #kem-400aaa.
The actual process for repairing the Blu Ray drive on your PS3 console is not all that difficult. You have to remove the drive from your console after disconnecting the power cable and data ribbon, remove the protective metal casing on the outside of the drive, then the black colored plate which protects the delicate laser lens and mechanism itself.
Next, unscrew the screws which hold the laser lens in place, remove the old lens, and then install the new one. After this, you simply have to put everything back together, seat the Blu Ray drive back in place, reconnect the data ribbon and the power cable, and then your PS3 should be working again like brand new.

its a problem with the latest download update. sorry to say but its a job for sony as long as its still under warranty. just phone them up explain the probs your having and they will send you a new (normally reconditioned) unit out. sony's replacement service is very good.

This problem is common with the PS3 and typical of a failure of the bluray drive. It can sometimes be resolved by cleaning the laser pickup lens but often the lens itself needs to be replaced.
