OK, all the answers I see here don't look like they was reading your problem and what you did. You most likely should take it back apart and put the disc back in it that way. Since you took the disc out the PS3 thinks there isn't and is a disc inside. When you press the eject button it's not going to reset the disc arms inside because there isn't a disc in there and that white thing is there to keep a disc from going in with a disc inside even though there isn't one. You should go ahead and order another laser and when you take it back apart change the laser also slim PS3 are more common on the laser going bad I've changed alot of them. But when you change that make sure you either put a disc back in or move the arms and slides to where it's ready to accept a disc when it's put back together.
