Hi there,

 

The sound you hear unfortunately means that your BD/op drive needs to be maintained/replaced (loading tray). If your console is still under warranty, obviously there'll be no charge but if not, expect to pay roughly $100 and a wait time-frame of approx. 1-2 wks. depending on where you live.

 

Also, I wouldn't chance inserting any 'disc-based' media until the drive has been tendered to. Otherwise, you'll run the risk of damaging any media discs via large scratches and/or cracks.

Sounds like you tried everything. Now, just buy a new one. Seriously, it's broken, let it go. If you can back-up your PS3 first, try it. It'll make retoring your data onto a new HDD easier.

I also have this issue, though there is no fear of disks being damaged. My PS3 will not read the disks and when I insert it acts like it is having a hard time reading the disk, after maybe 10-15 sec it makes an eject sound but doesnt actually eject, then tries harder to read the disk. Maybe 10% of the time after that eject sound it is able to READ the disk.. and I can play without any issues whatsoever. Over this last week I had the a game going costantly just so I could finish it without running into this issue each day.

 

I did some reading on thie issue when this started happening and I just figured it was a lense reading issue, not a mechanical failure.. the drive works 100% with everything other than Blu Ray disks.. like most people post about.

 

Edit- Sorry for the 6 month ressurect btw Smiley Tongue
