You will find that the blue ray lens get a film o' dirt on it, and this is one o' the main reasons it wont read the blue ray disc as the blue ray light has a much tighter beam than the the DVD types/ps2 games

.

If you have it under warranty you can call Sony and get a replacement.

Don't bother restoring Your PS3 if it's not playing PS3 games. I to have a 60gb PS3, and have exactly the same problem. It plays everything exccept Blu-Ray & PS3. I have a 160gb HDD for My PS3, and have restored it twice, I had to wait 9+hours for the operation to complete, as the HDD size is alot bigger than the standard 60gb. My guess is that it's dirt on the lens that is causing the problem but, My warranty has run out. I can't justify, or afford forking out another £100+ for SONY to replace it, so, I'm now plucking up the courage to take apart the Blu-Ray, and clean it with a Cotton Bud and Isopropyl Alcohol. It has to be dirt which is causing the problem, because it has never crashed or failed a PS2 game, DVD, CD-ROM, DVD+R/-R, while in action, and this has been going on for 6 months now. I have lots of really cool PS2 games and only 4 PS3 games, which are "Resident Evil 5, The Orange Box, Metal Gear Solid 4 and Dynasty Warriors 6". I would really like to play My PS3 games again.

I had this same problem...thought i was gonna have to spend a ton of money to fix it....but apparently there is an option in the settings that turns on and of the ability of you ps3 to play ps3 or ps2 games. Now i didn't discover this my self, my brother in law did, so i dont really know where this option is. but if you want i can get ahold of him and ask exactly what he did. hope this helps brother.
