Open up the PS3 and then open up the Blu-Ray Drive and clean the lens with rubbing alcohol or isopropyl alcohol on a q-tip. I heard that lighter fluid works way better than rubbing alcohol and isopropyl alcohol, so try it on a q-tip to clean the lens. I am not responsible for any damages to your console.

If that doesn't work then go here to get help from other people -

My ps3 will not read my games , but it will read dvd's

Blu-rays utilise a blue laser within the drive and DVDs use a red laser.
Sounds like the blu-ray/games reading blue laser has died and it'll need replacing.
Very helpful and knows his stuff.

Hope that helps.

Ps3 will not play dvds or games

Yes, most likely it will need to be replaced. But it wouldn't hurt to try a DVD player cleaning kit first. It may give it a little more time. If your PS3 is under a year old I advise that you contact Sony, they will repair or replace it for free and pay for all the shipping. Hope this helps, thanks!
