The lens on the PS3 might have developed a fault which is preventing it from reading a disc. Try cleaning the lens with a dvd disc cleaner first.If you can hear is spinning then its most likely a lens fault.
sounds like the motor is bad on it, your best bet would be to replace the drive cause you don't know what other kind of damage may have happened to the drive.The lasers I know you can get seperately but not the motor.
Your lens or motor are dead. However, I am thinking that it is the motor. If it is on warranty, call Sony. They should fix it. If not, take it apart, and plug a 3v current into the drive. + = red, - = black. If it is dead, get a replacement from a website like eBay.
the reason it makes the "grinding" noise is because the motor that moves the lens to read the disk is dieing, this generally happens when you have played your ps2 for a long time, this only happens to older consoles.
Don't bother changing the lens. If i understand you correctly you have damaged the motor or some circuitry leading to it.
I hope this helps! good luck on finding a new one, they are abundant right now!
