Remove the disc drive from the console. Remove the cover very carefull. Take the top part off (remove the 5 screws) and open the disc drive like a book.
Carefull remove the guide mechanism (the front part -1 screw).
The clicking noise is caused by the fact that the left side mechanism that raises and loweres the deck when the disk is inserted or ejected is stuck. Carefull push back the piece of plastic with teeth located on the left side of the deck (as you are looking at the disk drive the oposite side with the lens driving motor) until it clears complete the plastic round gear that drives that part.
mount back the guide mechanism, and the top part.
Attached the ribbon cables to the unit , power the console and keep the eject button pushed for about 10-15 seconds.
That will reset all the gears and stuff.
Worked for me when I experienced that issue.

Got a game stuck in ps3 took it apart got game out put it together again,now when i turn it on it shows green then turns off


you might have damaged your disc drive. if there was a cord connecting the top of the ps3 and the disc drive and it got disconnected try reconnecting it by putting it on the top ps3 cover and back into the tray. takes alot of work if you don't want to send it back in.

looks like they took the drive apart when a disc was inserted and put the drive back together in disc in mode

there are 2 little white pedals that pop up when its in "disc in" mode the only way to fix it is to take the drive apart and manually move it to "disc ejected" mode

to do that, when the drive is apart you have to take of the little peice with the cd guide wheels then open the wheels and you will see a gap in the middle of where the little metal bars open up and the little white pedals fit through then just hit eject and they should lower now. put the drive back together and test it b4 you put the whole system back together.

I took my dvd apart to get some coins out & now it's unresponsive


Hi,

I am guessing you had a disc in the drive when you took it apart (or maybe the coins had something to do with it).

What you need to do is disassemble the Bluray drive again. With the top cover off of the Bluray drive, power on the PS3, then hit the eject button. The plastic guides should snap into the right position and then you can reassemble and it will work again.

1. Unplug PS3
2. Stand up so as you are looking down into the disc opening.
3. Fold out the felt that protects the drive.
4. Look for what resembles a disc. (You should see it)
5. Take to butter knives from your kitchen and with both hands use it like tongs to go into the drive and pinch the disc.
6. Pull out the disc and your DONE.

Worked for me a couple of times.

CD stuck in ps3 horrible noise cant get out HELP!!!


I had the same symptoms. The reason to my problem was that my 2 year old has pushed *three* disks into the console. I got them out through the following, admittedly pretty weird, approach: I hit the eject button, while gently prodding with another disk into the slot (at a slight upward angle). I could feel the disks inside the console rotating or vibrating as I was *gently* touching them with the fourth disk and hitting eject repeatedly. Somehow, the gentle prodding made one of the disk come out a bit, so I could pull it out easily. (I was pretty surprised when a second disk came out, and then a third.)

Draive wont take discs


Hi Spooks,

When you put the Disc drive back together, the mechanism probably did not go togther properly. You have to put it together with a disc in the drive. It is very hard to get the disc player to go back together properly I know. I needed three hands to do it. I done one. It took me several tries, but I finally got it. Another thing, since you have already disassembled your PS3 and need to do it again, go to Radio shack and get some Thermal heat transfer compound, Replace the compound between the heat sinks and processors. The original compound dries up after about a year and will kill your PS3 completely if you do not do this. Good luck,I know its not going to be easy.
