    Hi,

    my PS3 stopped reading discs. I have found that this seems to be a common issue, but so far have not found a real solution short of sending it in. Tried a system restore and now am backing up my saves and will do a complete restore.

    Anyone have any advice?

    its your blu-ray lens. If its still under warranty send it in to sony to have them fix it. If its not you can google the problem and I beleive you can replace the blu-ray lens yourself by buying a kit on ebay for around $50 and from what I hear its pretty easy to do. What happens is when dust gets on your lens it will eventually stop reading all discs. Luckily when this happened to me i had an extended warranty on mine and just sent mine in.
