Try refreshing your whole ps3 then not playing on it for a couple of days. once youve done that then go back onto your ps3 and try to back it work

Optical drive broken

It probably needs a new laser because the old one is "burnt out". It's a really common problem with them.

You could replace the laser or the entire Bluray drive.

You can buy these online at may online stores or eBay.

This is quite a common problem on the PS3 unfortunately. The problem is caused by the laser lens on the disc drive. For a full breakdown of the possible solutions please see this FixYa Tip.

I suggest cleaning the laser with a laser cleaner cd bought at walmart..
if it does not work then your laser diode is bad..
new laser is 50$ ebay which means you need to take it all apart and install..
If not a working drive is 130 on ebay
you pull the old drive out and stick the new one in takes 5 min.

or call sony and pay 150$ plus to fix it and it takes a month +.
Or sell it on ebay and buy a 40 gb for about 300 for the console alone..
if its a 60gb ps3 you have you could get about 225 plus for it broken!

PS3 not recognizing any disc

See if a DVD works. For me, I know my Bluray is ruined because I can watch DVDs and play PS2 games fine but anything Bluray does not work. If a DVD does not work, you have more of a problem, if DVD does work you need a new BlueRay which Sony should take care of for you. If you don't have receipt, etc. like me you can buy a new Bluray (KES-400AAA) on Ebay and use this guide to install it
Hope that helps.

Playstation 2 wont recognize any discs

Your PS2 is definitely broken. Either send it in to Sony to be repaired or buy a new PS3. Bummer. Sorry to hear about this.
