2 discs stuck in PS3.....

The helpful 6 year old loaded 2 discs into our PS3, of which one might be upside down. The sticky tabs on the bottom of the case were removed to reveal molded case, so how exactly do I tear this thing open and/or fish the discs out?

Disc Stuck In 60G Console


  • Press the "Eject" button on the PlayStation 3 console and hold it for at least 10 seconds; if your PS3 has the "force eject" feature included it will eject the disc regardless of whether the console is frozen or not. Turn off the console and turn it back on before inserting new discs.


  • Unplug the power cord and any other cords from the PS3 console if the "force eject" feature does not work and you own a PS3 Slim. Turn the console upside down so that you have access to the bottom of the console.

  • Locate the small compartment door on the bottom of the console. Remove the door by pulling it up and off the console; a blue screw and a small hole should be visible inside the compartment.

  • Insert a Phillips-head screwdriver into the hole. Turn the screwdriver in a counterclockwise direction to manually eject the disc. Once the disc is removed, replace the compartment door and turn the PS3 console back to its correct position before reconnecting the power cable and any other cables you previously removed.

    My disc is stuck in the system


    There is no need to open up the console! Get someone to hold the PS3 upside down (so the disc slot is facing down) then get 2 butter knives insert them carefully one on the left and one on the right of the disc slot. Now gently push the knives away from eachother so that the one on left goes left and the one on the right goes right. You will feel them push the brackets that hold the disc in. As you push the brackets you will release the mechanism that holds the disc in and it should just drop out. I did this with mine when my little boy decided to put a credit like card in it!

    My son has put two discs in ps3 and cant get either out now


    I researched this problem since my twin 2 1/2 year old sons decided that my PS3 was hungry and needed a steady diet of 3 discs all at once. On a similar discussion board, someone discussed using butter knives to pinch the discs (one on top and one on bottom) and pull them out. This worked to perfection! Just be sure to pull the power cable from the back of your PS3 prior to sticking any objects (i.e. metal knives) into the front of it.

    PSP Game Stuck in PS3


    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.
    GOOD LUCK
