If you just bought this, call Sony and get it exchanged. The Laser is defective. I see and replace those Bluray Drives all the time and see this problem a lot. This will be fixed for free if it's still under it's Warranty. Hope this helps and please remember to indicate that I have helped you today.
Ok but the playstation is not under warranty.
Ok, you'll need to replace the Bluray Drive in it. You can get any drive that fit's your model and just swap the Main I/O Board in it since it "Married" to the Main System Board. More info on this here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Qztw_aUBQhI.
