Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console

1 Answer

PS3 won't intake a disc, still ejects (sort of)

PS3 stopped taking in the disc automatically (won't **** it in). If the disc is pushed in manually, it won't play. It will eject, but it takes a few tries and it acts weak when it ejects the disc. There must be a problem with the mechanism. Can it be fixed?

Ps3 will not eject disc. you can hear ps3 trying to eject disc but the disc stop will not release it. ps3 operates just fine with the disc that is in it (Madden 2010) and the movie that was in it before...


Goto youtube and type "Diasembley ps3 console and or drive"
or " removing a jammed disk ps3"
follow the tutorial and you should be able to extract the disc
and clear the jam. yourself . It's not hard to do . just take
your time .

if you have any questions feel free to ask.

Game is in Ps3, wont eject, says no game in the xmb screen


if the disc is spinning with some clacking noise then its all right,use the manual eject button 3 to 4 times.Now the disc should be sited on the disc plate.If you think that this works but not through the software then update the firmware.On new slim PS3 disc stuck,it doesnt void your warranty.
Thanks for using Fixya

There's a game stuck in the console. how could i get it out


Hi there,

Thank you for contacting Fixya expert support.

This happened to me a while back and I got it out. You have to hold the eject button and use another disc and put it in a little bit and push the stuck disc around with the other disc you have. The stuck disc will then get pushed into the right position that your PS3 will recognize there is a disc inside and then you can push eject and the disc will come out.

On the most CD/DVD-players there's an hole which you can stick a thin metalwire (for example an straightened paperclip) to eject the disc. Look on the side/front of the player if you can find a little hole (app. 1-2mm).

Moreover, click the link to view the troubleshooting video;

It should take care of the issue.

How to get a disc out that is stuck


Try this way of getting the disc out:

Turn off your PS3 from back (the main off button) Put your finger on the eject button and once you do, push the switch at the back to switch the PS3 on, and then push the eject button. Hold it like this for fifteen to thirty seconds, or until the drive is forced open.The disc should come out now.

If it doesn't then you'll need to open up your ps3, then open up the disc drive manually. To do it its located here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aHS07EFGZ3g

the drive is on the left, it unplugs then you need a small phillips head screwer to take off the top of the drive and then you can remove the disc. Then put the screws back and then go ahead and plug the drive back in and the put the ps3 back together.

My game wont eject


Okay, the same thing happened to me and I managed to get the disc out. First is the blue light on. If it isnt then you should hold the eject button and use another cd and push it into the disc drive and gently push your stuck disc around. When you hold the eject button your PS3 will make a loud clicking sound but dont worry. Just keep using the extra disc and push the stuck disc around and it should come out

System wont load or eject any discs...


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.
