I had a 60gb, and it would not read any games, or blu-ray discs whatsoever. I had just got done beating mercenaries, and just bought dead space to
play, when I noticed it stopped working. I tried every game I had, and nothing at all. The disc circle would display, but it could not read a game. I
know it was the lens, and from what I know it was $150 to fix. From what I have gathered, Ps3 does have 2 seperate lenses.
I don't know exactly what caused this. I have tried to break it down, to 3 possible conclusions.
1. it got waaaaay to hot, and just fried itself. My Ps3 felt like a space heater sometimes, I would sweat just sitting next to it.
2.I hit the main power button while in game play
3.I also heard of a new patch, or firmware that upon download, it ruins the lens
Now this is what I have gathered from other sites, so I could be completely off with my conclusions.
