System won't read discs?

The system starts up fine, and I can fart around in the menus all I like, but when I put a game or movie in, it starts to load (in the event of games, it even shows the graphic on the menu), but it stops and powers off. Any thought?

Which version/update? Please amend or add a comment.


It is likely overheating OR the power supply is dying (voltage drops below spec). Those are the only two ways I know to force a power down. Could also be an issue in the power control chip.


Does the red LED flash before the shutdown?

I would first try to check/clean the laser with a soft microfibre cloth.

use the following guide to disassemble it: Playstation 3 Optical Drive Replacement

but many ps3 lasers are "dying" - never had a "dead" one, but the ps2 had a similar problem and every ps2 i had with that issue, had "burned in" dust on the laser - i've cleaned it and everything worked as normal
