HI,

try tapping the right hand (or bottom if you have it vertical) side of the tray when you press eject.
Also give a bang on the top of the player.

    Those are the two home remedies you can try.If That doesn't help then you'll have to get it repaired.I hope this is under warranty.Let me know the result.

    or you can remove the screws from the back and open the device and remove the dust or something which is blocking the tray to come out.

    it will just take no time to do it.

    just remove the screws and take the upper cover out and all is visible.clean it.



    feel free for further queries.

    thanks.

    slightly tapping on the unit also helps to make it clear.also OFF the unit and slightly try to pull it out with hand and apply some greese material like vaseline on both the sides to make it move fluently.

    then ON and see it may work.but do not do it forcibly.



    thanks.

Hey, is the ps3 still underwarranty? Its easyly fixable by takeing the drive apart but it voids your warranty, in this case its best to contact the shop, or sony for warranty repairs.

Il get you the link to sony support. hold on.

    hey, heres the sony repairs page

    http://eservice.sony.com/webrma/web/inde...



    now you can contact them or the shop you purchased the product at.



    Few things you can try at home.

    Unplug the ps3 for 10 minutes, try again.



    you could try pushing the tray back in there are a few gears that rotate, you could try rotateing them with a blank screw driver.



    Really the best option is to use the warranty, wouldn't want to break it or void the warranty.

PS3 won't play blu ray or games. Will play


Mine just did the same thing two days ago. i have been researching the internet about this cause im not about to spend 150 through sony. anyway what is going on is there are two seperate diods in the laser compartment, one reads blurays and which is also ur games because they are consetered blueray also, and the other diod is for regular dvd and music cds. sounds like the blueray diod has took a ****. To get that part you have to order a new laser which is 150. youtube will show you how to change it. looks very easy

Ps3 wont play games, movies or cds


The Blu Ray Diode fried when you shut the power switch on in the back. The PS3 uses 2 different lasers to read disks. One for standard dvd's and cd's and one for Blu Ray. The only way to fix your PS3 is to replace the Blue Ray Diode or laser lens. I would recommend paying the $150 bucks to have sony replace unless you know something about Diodes and lasers.
If you hold down the eject button for 10 seconds it will reset your laser and then you should be able to shut the power down in back safetly.
Formatting and or resetting the hard drive won't do a thing if your diode is fried.
I found a work-around to get it to read discs though. You have to have a bluray disc in the drive (game or movie) and start a downloaded game or Playstation Home. Once the game or Home loads, hit the PS button on the controller. The crossbar menu will pull up and you will notice the disc icon will (magically) pop up. Click the quit game icon. Once you are out of the downloaded game or Home the disc icon will still be there. You can then load the game or disc. The icon will remain there until you eject the disc, so you will have to repeat this every time you want to load a game. Although this is a workaround to prevent Sony from gouging you for $150+, this is still not a fix. A fix would be for Sony to admit they have a money making firmware problem and fix it. This fix will only work if you don't have an actual hardware failure (which I apparently don't). I think a class action lawsuit is in order for everyone that has this problem and especially for those who have shelled out the money to fix something that is firmware related. I'm sure Sony will only fix the firmware to make this workaround not work anymore so as not to lose their little cash flow scheme.
