Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console
Sounds like the Blue Laser may have gone bad. Try swapping out the internal blu ray drive with another one. You will have to take it apart and of course that would void the warranty unless you can make it look like the sticker on the bottom wasn't tampered with. On second thought if it's still under warranty just send it in and get your money's worth! ; )

SOURCE: PS3 laser Problem
It sounds like you bought a defective laser or it is the chip on your "sister board". There is a chip on the circuit board thats on the bottom of the Blu-Ray drive and it has a silver rectangle on it. Some say that that chip is going bad on some machines. I have repaird 60+ PS3's this year and I haven't had this happen to me yet though. I would suggest trying another laser, then if that doesn't work try a "sister board" from the same model of PS3. I'm still not possitive if that is a possible solution though. The "sister board" is supposedly keyed to only work with the mother board it came with. Well, I hope this helps. Good luck!!
