Turn the main switch off on the back of the unit then place you finger in the eject switch now turn the main power switch on the back of the unit with out removing your finger the unit will power on now just keep your finger there for a few seconds until the blue light start blinking now take your finger off if there is a disk it will come out if the bluray drive needs to be reset it will reset by doing this

I had the same issue as described before. There was no disk in the console and it would not accept any disks in to the slot as normally it would. My solution, although rough, was as follows:
Take a disc (any type) and push it in as far as you can (as my auto feeder was not pulling it in)
Take a second disc (or similar object) and push the disc the rest of the way in to where it would normally stop
Eject the disc as normal by pushing the eject button on the console
Not sure why, but this resolved my issues for now. Maybe it realigned the mechanism or reset it somehow but it, at least for now, saved me $150.
Hope this helps....

Take a butter knife and very gently insert it into the disc tray on the right hand side and you will feel an arm that moves out to the right further push this lever a couple of times and you will here the playstation trying to take in a cd then actually insert the disc. This worked for me and if the disc does not eject repeat this making sure to insert the knife above th cd. Dont know why this works but it does. And you can feel free to call me an idiote but this really works.
