    I have a disk inside my PS3 I cannot eject it. There is a loud clicking noise after I start the PS3. I think the disc is jammed somehow. I don't like the sound the PS3 is making so I turn it off as soon as the noise starts. I do not want to damage the motor or anything.



    I am sure there is only one CD in the drive as the unit is clearly out of reach from my kids.

It depends where the clicking noise is coming from. if the sound is coming from the front of your Console Chances are there could be something loose within the PS3's Blu-Ray drive, if its coming from the back, there could be something affecting the cooling fans such as something stuck inside like dust etc.

if your PS3 is able to play Games and Blu-Ray Discs fine, i would seek Sony technical support, just to make sure everything is okay. you wouldnt want your PS3 to break !

PS3 Clicking noise is associated with the hardware aspect, so that's your starting point it may come from the PS3 fan clicking, so do check out the fan if there's something that might have got stucked in between. Clogs from too much dust or dirt may also cause PS3 clicking sound.

PS3 clicking noise may also come from the hard drive. The hard drive are a bit noisy because of the mechanical parts and moving drive head when reading and storing data. Again, if the noise level is very minimal, there's no worry. PS clicking noise fro the hard drive that becomes too audible may signify that the hard drive is having mechanical problems and may soon broke down. At this point you may want to backup any data you have



I hope this helps you.

So i just tried to put in a movie into the console and now the disk is stuck half way in and it wont come out, what do i do?


Start by unpluging and repluging in , if it dont work - Push in giving gentle yet more force until it goes back in as long as the disc is not blocking it it will go back in then push eject again it will come backout, A little clicking noise is normal for this problem it might make 30 clicking noises before its all the way in try to avoid the clicking noise by pushing in slowly, once correct force is applied you will hear the motor turn as well, unless you dismantle the system this it is the only way.

Does not read the disc and makes a funny noise


If there is a bad noise coming from inside of your Wii when you are trying to load a game, either there is something stuck inside of the DVD drive or a part has fallen out of place. If you feel comfortable with it -- open up the Wii and check things out. Make sure the kids didn't put anything in the drive. If you're not comfortable with it, the following website does Wii repairs and sells the whole DVD drive unit for the Wii:

Something stuck in disc drive of ps3


There is no need to open up the console! Make sure the power is off! Get someone to hold the PS32_bing.gif 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!

System shuts off and turns to red light standby


Hello. You may want to double check your connections and cables. The only time I've ever heard a clicking before a system shut it's self down was when a kid had stuck the battery cover from a TV remote into the disc drive.
Also, if the PS3 keeps acting like that, Sony will repair/replace the unit for free including shipping since it's under a year old. Thanks and good luck!

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.
