Inspect and clean your disc Take a close look at the bottom side of your game, movie, or music disc (the side without a label or image). Are there scratches? Excessive scratches or smudges can prevent your console from reading the disc.Clean your disc Hold the disc by the edges without touching the top or bottom surfaces.Using a soft, clean, slightly damp cloth, lightly wipe from the center of the disc outward.
Note Use ONLY water to clean the disc.
Once the disc is clean, load the disc into your console and see if the disc plays.
try restoring your ps3.
My ps3 wouldn't read disc, but since I restored it it's now reading discs.
Go to system settings on you're home screen. Then go to restore ps3 system & then go to full restore. It will take 3 & 1/2 hours but it could fix you're problem.
PS3 is The amazing device by sony but it has some common problems like Disc read error etc.... Good news is that these all
problems can be repaired with the help of DIY Guides, one such guide

the problem with god of war 2 is the ps2 lasers are not capable of reading the dual layer disks. either wait and get a ps3, change the laser - i just bought on for 3 quid on e bay brand new. the lasers are not designed to be played the amount they are played. the laser is designed to play 20 hours a week but as sony found out he avg gamer will clock up up tp 60 hours a week so the lasers are only lasting 1/3rd of the time they should. plus if they put a good laser in the machine u would one buy 1 ps2 and then 1 ps3. i have burned out 3 ps2's so far lol. just forget the game or wait till its put on platinum as these are single layerd disk
