Do you have an fat PS3?

If its not a 60GB, turn it off at the back, put your finger on the eject button and turn it back on via the switch.

It will emergency eject the disk.

Cheers that worked.

Any idea on how to make the god damn PS3 work though?

I rarely play games on it. Only when there are people round but i need it to watch my huge collection of DVDs

Short of getting it fixed by Sony (Will cost you £130 if its out of warranty) or going to independent repair peeps (Costs £80) then there isn't much you can do unless you are a bit hands on and have a 2000w heat gun available.

Nah this was in East London. 20 minute tube ride away. Installed a cooling fan for free in to the PS3 and just have to keep that on whilst on PS3 to make sure it doesnt overheat again
