SOURCE: PS3 disc loading problem
This is a dirty or bad bluray drive which seems to be the same as the 3 rings of death for the 360..
Buy a cd laser cleaner and try that if it does not work your laser diode is bad and a new laser is 50$ via ebay.. if you dont want to get to technical then you can buy a drive for 120ish and switch them out.
Sony will charge 150$ + to fix it other then that there is no way around it.. and I believe you need a proof of purchase to get the warranty. I really hope the cd cleaner works but if not then your stuck...
You can sell it on ebay and if its a 60gb you can get about 200 for it... then buy a like new 40gb ps3 for 300ish I have seen just consoles sell at 290 incl shipping. Best of luck!
If you are happy please feel free to rate me THANKS!

Sadly there currently is no fix for this problem. I've also had this same problem and contacted Sony about it.
You need to send it in to them to get it serviced. You can do this at:
If your warrenty has expired it will cost around $180.
Hope This Helps. Also be sure to rate whether it did or not.

I called Sony and they helped me resolved this same problem...
1. Turn off the ps3.
2. press down on the on/off button on the front of ps3 while turning on the button from the back. DO not let it go until you hear 2 beeps and will show a red light.
3. press the on/off button again and do not let it go until you hear 1 beep, paused, and two beeps. Let it go.
4. There should be a prompt asking you what to do. If you have hdmi, answer all the question yes etc.
5 there should be a menu list asking what you need done.. setting wise..
6. Choose the # 3rd list (not sure how many they were).
7. IF it tells you that your data is corrupted etc.. just click ok
8. wait till progress ends ( if it tells your your data is corrupted again, just click ok again).
9. It's going to do some loading again...
10.. end of restoring and you should see your ps3 menu..

This is a problem occurring in all the play station 3 consoles....... this is mainly because of the poor quality of the disc.....as a result it leads to the damage of ur PS3 lens..............use good original discs........the heating effect is due to the long usage of pirated discs
