You can do this fan test. Turn the main switch off, hold the eject button.
While holding the eject button, turn the main switch on, when the power light is green, release it, it will beep The fan will operate at the highest speed possible and will eject any disc that is inside. After about 15 seconds the fan will stop spinning and the ps3 will beep 3 times and blink a red light. When this happens, turn the main switch off and on then turn it on normally. Let me know how this goes!!
P.S. It will not harm your ps3, It's testing the cooling fan.
switch off ps3, right now before turning on the ps3 keep your hand pressed firmly down on the eject button and the on/off button simultainisly and then power up, it will make a loud fan noise but the game/dvd will pop out.

well sounds like your PS3 needs to be reflowed or reballed. I would highly recomend you have a professional do the repair. as fas as having a game stuck inside the machine you can get it out in under 10 seconds by doing this.<br />
1) turn off power switch in back of ps3<br />
2) place finger on eject button and hold there while ps3 is off ( no red light) <br />
3) while holding finger on the eject button turn power switch on the back of ps3 on , hold finger on eject button untill the disk ejects.<br />
4) turn power switch off and have unit repaired or replaced. <br />
if unit is covered by warranty and you send it to sony you must get your disk out of the system as you will NOT get it back if you send it to sony. Most reputable repair shops will return your disk with the system or give it to you before they take the system in for repairs. I ALWAYS give the game disks back before a customer leaves my shop as it leaves me with less to keep track of.
your PS3 overheated, what you need to do is remove the power cable and hold the power button for 5 seconds to make sure that there is no power left, then plug it back in and press the eject button hold it down, it will power up and eject disk, if that fails, you need to RMA your ps3 to sony or you can try and return it to vendor with the game case or dvd case of the disk that is stuck they should replace both
when i was trying to watch my blue ray "young guns" movie, the console wasnt reading the disc. i.e. it was as there was no movie/game in the system. i held the eject button for 10 seconds with the movie out of the console. when the blue light started blinking i continued to hold eject button until the light stopped. i then inserted my movie and........VIOLA!!!!!
now i just need to find a date to watch it with.
Hold the "Eject" button for ten seconds and try it. Oh and if you have a 40 gb model (2 USB ports) and the Eject button dosent work then try this, Turn off the back of the PS3 (Main power switch) and then hold the eject button (while the main power is off) keep your finger pressed on the eject button flick on the main power switch and it should sound like some HUGE fan don't get scared, wait until the fan stops turn off your ps3, start it up and insert the disk and IT SHOULD WORK
frist make sure you are inserting the disk correct label side up or label to the right if you are which you mostly Are then your console has a propbelm with feeder which mean it must go back to the store
