It sounds like the loader is stuck when I get back I can email you some things that should and could help out! Worse comes to worse you sell it and buy a new one.. and I can help you out there as well!

Discs not spinning

If the disc is not spinning in your PS3 than that means the disc drive is broken. Your best bet would be to contact sony if your PS3 is still under warranty so they could fix it, or just buy your games digitally and play them without the disc.

Hi my name is Michael my ps3 is'nt working when i turn it on it will stay on for a few seconds then shutdown what could this be?

Hello Michael, your PS3 has serious issues, when this happen, the main board is highly suspected. A replacement of the power supply board is also needed, there is no user serviceable parts inside pS3. View this link to get an idea. Find first a replacement power supply, test, if it works, then good, if not a replacement motherboard is in order.

Will not allow us to play the disc installed in the ps3 console

Unless this is a game you "installed" from the online store, then all other PS3 games require the disc in to play.

With the disc in the system, go to the Game heading in the menu. You should see a disc icon with the name of your click it. If you do not see the image, you will probably see text that says "disc read error". In this case you need to either clean the disc, or replace the disc with a non-scratched or non-defective one.

If your PS3 does this with multiple non-defective discs, then your blu-ray drive may be defective.

System shuts off and turns to red light standby

Hello. You may want to double check your connections and cables. The only time I've ever heard a clicking before a system shut it's self down was when a kid had stuck the battery cover from a TV remote into the disc drive.
Also, if the PS3 keeps acting like that, Sony will repair/replace the unit for free including shipping since it's under a year old. Thanks and good luck!

yeah, sony doesn't have good customer support. umm. how long have you had it? if it is dusty around the vents then it is probably dusty inside too and *may*be preventing the drawer from moving properly. but it may also be the belts/gears /motors.
