Disc stuck is not a big issue. Don't waste money to find someone to fix it yet! It may be a minor issue that you can be fixed by yourself.
Remember, you are not the only one to suffer this problem! Because I had help so many people to fix the same problem now. You are so lucky to be there. I share a guide for you - It make me like a pro to help my friends and many people. It is too expensive to send back to Sony repair if your machine is out of warranty!
I had solved the same problems after bought this guide. The author of the book is really kind and helpful to his customers. May be you can buy it and share what you have learned !
PS3 Repair Guide

Hi this is a very common problem and its to do with the ps3 over heating,
try the following.
leave it off and unplugged for an hour
check all air vents are free from fluff and dust and vac if needed.
make sure the ps3 is not being used whilst its on carpet
make sure the ps3 is not sitting on top of another electrical item such as dvd or sky box as this will cause it to over heat a lot quicker.
make sure its not wedged in a confined space it needs to have plenty of room around it to ensure cool air flow.
unplug all the leads from the back of the ps3 and the telly then plug them all back in, doing this removes any static that may have built up, then switch it on.
if after doing the above it still dont work then this indicates that either the gpu or cpu chip has over heated, if you have any warranty left take it back you need to check on the ps3 web site to see how old your ps3 is as this fault is covered by ps3 warranty for a couple of years but you need to check this.
now as for getting it repaired, well its a bit hit and miss i repair them myself and if it was an xbox 360 then i would say the chance of it working again is pretty high but as its a ps3 then these can be a bit hit and miss if the ps3 has over heated a lot and fried the cpu or gpu chip or both then the cost of repair would not be worth doing as it would be cheaper to buy a second hand ps3 or even a reconditioned one.
its not the kind of repair you can do yourself as you need to know how to test the circuit board to find out if the chips have been damaged.
the only other option you have is selling it for spares, i buy the damaged ones for spare parts but you wont get much for it as it is, i mean you could pay for the repair and you may get charged even though it cant be fixed,
i always say to my customers that if i cant repair it i will only charge for the parts i used which is nothing but if i do fix it then i charge them the cost of the repair, usually if its beyond repair they let me buy it off them as i pay more than they would get from ebay as they sell on their for about 30 quid with the problem you have got.
let me know if you need further assistance ok
plz rate this solution as i have a whole page of unrated posts, thanks
use google and search for the following.
how to fix ylod on ps3
ylod repair guide for ps3
how to fix ylod on ps3 using heat gun
search for any of the above, never pay for any guides their all free and i can always talk you through the process of doing this repair
if you have any warranty take it back as you get at least 12 month warranty
never use the guides that tell you to either use hair dryer or to put the circuit board inside an oven both these methods dont work and the oven method will destroy your ps3,
if your doing this yourself you will need a heatgun with temp settings ie 1 and 2 high heat and low heat about 350f is what you need,
make sure you get a repair guide
i repair these for £40 so if your unsure what your doing or dont want to risk making it worse then shop around for repair service and they will sort it for you i always give 30 day warranty
if you are planning on doing this yourself let me know and ill send you some link for sites that have lots of guides you can follow ok
