When you load the disk, immediately lift the PlayStation with both hands (just to be extra careful) tilt front end up and hold it vertically with the disk drive slot on top. Once again, the traditional "on it's side" vertical position will not work. The top-loading, a/v cables on the bottom position is the only one that will work. If tilting the system every time isn't your style, you can always figure out a clever mounting solution that keeps it the "load on top" position permanently, but be sure to account for the fan and AV/POWER connections being on the bottom. I know it sounds ridiculous, but it's kept me from buying a new ps3.
I know this thread is a few years old, but I was having problems getting TWD S6 to show up in XMB. I tried this and it worked! So many thanks to you!!

I had the same problem. I fixed it, with a can of compressed air by blowing it into the DVD slot with the long red tube. Mostly blowing it in the middle where the head would be. It didn't work at first, until I put a DVD in and blew the air again. After that it can read Blue-ray movie again.
