OK, I never encountered this issue before, so it's either the system files that corrupted or a hardware issue.
First try the following: Switch the PS3 off (Red Light). Hold your finger on the power button
until the PS3 switches on and off. Take your finger off and hold it in
again. It will come on. Hold it until you hear a double beep and take
it off immediately. You will then be taken into a recovery menu. It
will ask you to connect your controller via USB. Choose option 3 -
Restore File System (Do not try any other option as it will erase some
or all data on your HDD) It will also give you a message that the file system is corrupted. Just go through it and continue the restore.
If this does not work, you should try another controller or worst case, format the HDD.
make sure your discs are clean then try again if same occurs put a cleaning disc into your console this will clean any unwanted dust particles if same occurs again you may have a problem with your laser that reads discs i had same problem
