Question about Sony PlayStation® 3 (80GB) Console
My PS3 will not load any disks. Just makes a buzz sound. I held down the eject button for 30 seconds to "force eject" to see if that worked but it had no effect.
If you do not hear spin up and just a buz sound this is not firmware and anyone who told you otherwise does not know whats going on, I am telling you if you replace this drive about $99 new you will be happy you did.
The servo motor has gone bad these cheap BD drives do not last long under heavy play and Sony new this that is why they offer you to pay to extend you warranty not only to make them a few bucks extra but to save you from this type of mechanical failure.
You can by a new BD drive on-line for cheaper then it will cost you to replace the system.
You also can find cheap solutions on-line as well as some of these have bad boards on the drive and replacing this will help as well.

First off, make sure you have the latest firmware installed.
fully power off your PS3. If you don't know how to do that, use the
black switch on the back of the PS3. If you're still unsure, unplug it
from the wall.
Now, plug it back in/flip the
power switch back on, and then press the I/O button on the front panel
to power the PS3 up.
Try your disc access again.
I've had mine not read discs maybe twice in 9 months and both times that fixed the problem. Since the latest firmware updates I have had no problems at all.
Please accept this answer, and if you require more help, please re-post.
