Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console
Launch PS3 models and PS3 models with backwards compability have different disk lenses for blu-ray disks and dvd disks. Which means that you can have a faulty blu-ray lense that doesn't work, but as long as your dvd disk lense works you'll be able to play PS2 games and DVD movies.
Sadly the only way to repair a fault disk lense is by getting it to official tech support. You could try ordering the replacement parts and having it repaired by a third party or yourself but this is not recommended since it void the PS3 warranty.
Hope this helped you!

SOURCE: wont play ps3 games
I found that after playing PS2 games it caused the error so my only advice is not to play PS2 games which UNFORTUNETLY defeats the object of a 60gb if you got one like I do. [sigh]

You're blu-ray drive has partially died. It's a three part laser (cd, dvd, blu-ray). The most important part of yours has died that's why you can still play dvd and PS2 games because they use the dvd laser and not the blu-ray.
