Question about Video Game Consoles & Games
Hello, Did you tried calling Sony? They have a 1 year warranty on it so everything should cover including sending you back the disc that is stuck in it. Give them a call if it's not over a year but make sure you have your receipt. Or should enter safe mode. This could help erase the problem. Good luck! Cost too much to break down so easily!

Base from the description of your problem, this is a clear sign of a overheating issue on your PS3, you can reset first your PS3 by doing this steps.
You can perform a reset by holding down the Power button for about 10 seconds. The power light should turn red, then you can let go of the button.
But if still same problem after that the PS3 should be taken to a service center for the overheating issue.

Hello there Rick
If you have the red
blinking light then you have the RED light of death AKA the RLOD.
The light is a warning
sign to let you know something is wrong. I can give you the quick
explanation, There are 2 chips on the motherboard inside the PS3, the
GPU (graphics) and the CPU (brain), when playing the ps3 the solder
heats up and when you finish playing it cools down, over time this
will cause the soldering to crack and the chips to lose connection
with the motherboard and you get the RLOD.
WHERE TO GO FROM
1 - Call Sony
In warranty the Price
is Free, out of warranty the Price is $150,
the whole process is 4-6 weeks
You can call Sony and
they will collect the PS3, repair/replace, and deliver the PS3 back
2 - Fix it your Self
You can use a PS3 fix
manual to get this fixed easily and at home using household tools you
probably already own.
Here For The PS3 Manual which has helped so many people like you.
