MY PS3 HAS FLASHING RED LIGHT BUT THE GAME IS STUCK INSIDE HOW CAN I REMOVE IT??


The 3 ways of getting your game out. NOTE: If you do #2 you will still have to flux and reflow the motherboard to reset the blue-ray drive.

1. Is to strip your system down to the motherboard so you can flux and reflow the board.

2. Is to open the blue-ray drive and take it out.

My ps3 doesnt read disks


If your system doesn't recognize blue ray games or blue ray dvds but still plays normal dvds and music cds your lens is dirty. I had this problem and my factory and store warranty are up. I decided to take the machine apart and see what I could do.

If you look online there are several videos how to take the machine apart. I opened the machine up, took out the blue ray drive and opened up the drive. Once you remove the cover from the blue ray drive, take some rubbing alcohol and a Q-tip and clean the lens. I actually used my t-shirt to wipe it and blew on the lens and it did the trick. Before you assemble everything, plug the drive in and pop in a game to see if it works (or you will have to remove all the screws again.) This should solve your problem. If your drive doesn't recognize any media, your laser might be shot.

Once you tear into it and figure out how everything works you'll realize it's not very complicated. Otherwise you'll end up spending about 150 bucks for Sony to do the same thing.

oh dear, heh.

Sorry the only way to open up the costly blue ray drive on the unit is to take the whole thing apart after that you can take the blueray drive out and open it up.


taking the ps3 apart may void your warranty and you alone will be responsible for your actions if you decide to take the ps3 apart and also the blue ray drive inside.


heres the take apart guide, do at your own risk

other option is to shake them out from there, maybe aid with a flat object carefull with it.

Ps3 blu ray lens cleaning


What are you saying you screw up your $600 dollar console. OMFG i mean common man. Jeez luis. Well since you have your ps3 already open your ps3 system you should open again and extract cod4 out of your blue ray drive before you hook it up and all that. So take the game out connect the blue ray drive back put the system together and power it up. See if that works.
