Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console
Ok, here's the deal. I bought a PS3 2nd hand. Never had one and didn't know anything about them. As in the cooling system and hard drive. To the chase. Bought a game put it in the console for 1st time it went in hard gave it a litte shove (perhaps too hard) and nothing happened. There was nothing on the screen, my game was stuck, and I was screwed. this was almost last winter and I yet to played my PS2. I have almost $500.00 worth of **** sitting around if I can't get it fixed or figured out. Can you help me bro? I would be so grateful.

You only need to go as far as to getting the Blu-Ray drive out.
Open up the BluRay drive 3 black screws bottom front and 2 silver screws on the bottom back.
Take off the metal housing and remove the 5 black screws around the top perimeter.
When you take the top off you need to be EXTRA carefull of the little black wire and red wire on the side. You could damage them very easily. Use some needle nose pliers to unplug the tiny yellow plug from the PCB board, then lift the top right off. You should be able to get your game at this point. Go in reverse to reassemble it and try it again. When you start to insert the disc, it should only have to be gently inserted about half way if that, then the PS3 should pull it in. Let me know how this goes and if you need further help. Thanks!!
