This will hopefully identify any disk drive problems.

I have the same problem, I put the cd in and nothing happens, after a couple seconds it sounds like the cd wants to eject. But it stays there. And after this it just stays like this. I tried to put the system on Run CD automatically, and sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't.
***Insert a CD and listen to some of the songs. Do they play okay? (WORKS)
***Insert a DVD and see if it plays without jumping/skipping failing. (WORKS)
***Insert a PS2 game. Does it show the "unknown disk/PS2 game" message? (WORKS)
***Play a PS3 game/demo off the Hard disk. Does that play okay? (WORKS)
***Insert a BluRay movie, can it play through without freezing? (I HAVE NO BR-CD)
***Insert a friends PS3 games, preferrably one you have and one you don't. (i HAVE MULTIPLE GAMES, I GET THE SAME PROBLEM ON ALL OF EM.
It seems like its the Blue-ray Reader thats acting weird?

Yes I'm afraid it does sound like the Blu-Ray player in your console has developed a fault. Is is under a year old? If so you should be able to get a replacement under warranty. Best bet is to contact your local PlayStation Support to discuss your options.

I'ts been over a year since I bought the Playstation I think.
Do I really need to go through all this now?
Thanks for your help.
