Hello kellygowland,

Well, the good news is it can be fixed. A new drive mechinism runs about $55 if yu do it yourself. You have a few options...

1. Call Sony and get the bluray drive replaced. It may cost you if it is out of warranty or the warranty sticker is broken/void.
2. Have a technician replace the drive for you.
3. Replace the drive yourself. (not highly recommended)
4. sell the PS3 to someone on eBay and get what you can out of it.
Good luck.
