This is a dirty or bad bluray drive which seems to be the same as the 3 rings of death for the 360..
Buy a cd laser cleaner and try that if it does not work your laser diode is bad and a new laser is 50$ via ebay.. if you dont want to get to technical then you can buy a drive for 120ish and switch them out.

Sony will charge 150$ + to fix it other then that there is no way around it.. and I believe you need a proof of purchase to get the warranty. I really hope the cd cleaner works but if not then your stuck...

You can sell it on ebay and if its a 60gb you can get about 200 for it... then buy a like new 40gb ps3 for 300ish I have seen just consoles sell at 290 incl shipping. Best of luck!
If you are happy please feel free to rate me THANKS!

Game stuck in my PS3


Well my system just recently died while I was playing GTA and yeah now my game is stuck as well cause when I turn the system on it stays on for like 3 seconds before turning off and blinks the red light at me, I am not sure if there is a way to get the game out maybe if you open up the PS3 but make sure you don't do that if you still have warranty on the system or it will be void. I am sending my PS3 into Sony and the guy said just make a note that the game is stuck in the system and they will take care of it and fix my system.
