Try with laser cleaner. I hope this can help.
the easiest, but not fastest way is to get it repaired.
what did u do to your ps3 right before it stopped reading dvds?
Just wanted to say be careful when taking the drive apart, that front gear can get stripped if misaliged.
I'm find tutorial for open a PS3 but it's in french... http://www.metagames-eu.com/forums/1048943-post1.html

maybe return the ps3 and get a new one?
i encounter this problem a month ago and the only way to solve the problem is to replace new lens and if your ps3 still under warranty than i suggest you return it back to sony for replacement.
Sub27, THX for the tutorial !
I got mine from consoleparts4u worked perfect was only 25 pounds. Just remember dont mess with the gears when its open so it fits back the same as you opened it. I had to strip mine down and re do the mech because of gear mesh.
