Re: not reading disc
If you in anyway did not complete the update it can actually seriously damage your system. If you canceled the update or prematurely stopped it. i suggest calling suport at 1-800-345-SONY (7669) or emailing them at http://www.us.playstation.com/corporate/ConsumerServices

The update corrupted your hard drive that's why it's not loading any disc.Yes,Restoring the system will work but it will destroy all your saved game data.Updating the system will not remove the hard disk defect.There is only one solution,Reset it.
You can also try the steps below. Its from PlayStation Forum:
1. Turn off Playstation®3. 2. Hold the power button down; the system will turn on and turn off once again. 3. Once the System has been shutdown, re-press you finger until you hear 2 consecutive beeps 4. When you hear the 2 beeps take finger off power button. 5. You will be prompted to plug in your controller via USB and then hit the PS button 6. The Recovery menu will pop up.
The current Recovery Menu supports: • Restart System: Restarts the PLAYSTATION®3 System. • Restore Default Settings: Reset all system settings back to default. • Restore File System: Checks for corrupt/missing system files. • Rebuild Database: Rebuilds the OS for the PLAYSTATION®3. • Restore PS3 System: Fresh restore; Deletes everything and starts from Scratch. • System Update: Update the PLAYSTATION®3 System
If the above steps still does not solve the problem, then I think will have to update your Ps3.
Update your PS3 (in the settings menu the 1st option).
Go on the internet browser on the PS3 then go on the menu press triangle then on one of them there are delete cookies and the delete the others as well as cookies.
You could also try this as well: put the PS3 on then press the eject button (with no disc in) then hold it and switch the PS3 off at the back with your finger on the eject button still holding it, then put it back on and the fan test should be working this may cool it down. It might be over heating.
But if your problem is not still solved, then maybe you should call sony for further assistance.
The first thing I would do is a System Update!!!!!!
This happened to me playing Army of Two until I Updated it.
With games and Some Blu-Rays (Iron Man I had the same problem) require updates to play and function properly!
Just hook up to your Network (Router or Modem) Create a Playstaion store account (To the Right on the PS3 Crossbar) Then go to the 2nd to left on the Crossbar, Then all the way up.
Grab the update and you should be Good!
This happened Twice to me, So now I always update and No probs!
If your PS3 is brand new, you most likely have to update the system's
software to a more current version in order to properly play many
In order to update your PS3 system:
Go to the home menu, move to the "Settings" tab (the 2nd tab from the
far left), scroll down to "System Update". It takes about 5 minutes to
download and fully download the update, but it should solve the problem.
More information on the system update can be found below: http://www.us.playstation.com/ps3/about/systemupdate
Ps3 supports over 1000 ps1 and ps2 titles. Make sure you hook your ps3 up to the internet and download the latest firmware updates.
Odds are your system will be able to play all or most of your ps2 games once you update the ps3 online.
