    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 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.

    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.

    good luck!
