Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console
Yes the disc reading problem on the PS3 is massive!
Let me run through what is going on and how you can fix it:
It is the laser that needs readjusting in order to fix this problem. The good news is that the drive will still work as long as you readjust the laser in most cases - so you don't need to replace the drive!
You can send it in for Repair and they will fix it for you - although this will cost about $150 in a repair bill and you can expect to wait for about 4 weeks to get your console back.
It is possible to fix the PS3 games reading error from home because as mentioned above all you are doing is readjusting the laser.
Now if you want to go down this route check out the reviews of the top guides and see what they offer first below:

Tips for a great answer:
This is the 2nd most common problem
with PS3's. This isn't a bad problem. Your laser/lens will need to be
replaced. Do you see the time clock in the top right corner going
around and around? If so, you are just having laser/lens problems. If
you do not see the time icon spinning when you insert a disc, your
PS3's Blu Ray drive controller board has gone bad and you will need
to send it to Sony and not a
3rd party technician. Certain problems are only repairable by Sony. Good luck.
