Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console
My PS3 was freezing up during gameplay and sometimes would not read the disc at all. I took the system apart to clean the lens and then put it back together, being very careful not to screw anything up and put all of the parts back exactly how they were. Now, I can't insert any discs..I took it apart a couple more times to loosen and tighten the screws in the bluray player and that didn't help. I'm not sure what I did wrong. My only concern was that, when I took it apart, I noticed that there was still a disc in the player. I needed to remove that by hand and I was afraid that that maybe knocked something off allignment. Any advice is greatly appreciated...warranty is up which is the only reason I took it apart myself in the first place.
As for the 2 white tabs on the front.... u have to open it up and slide the big piece of plastic on the left side up.... if u look at that piece you should see that little wheels at the bottom are engaged with the wheel that is connected to that large piece. you won't and should not force it down but u can slide it up and doing so the white tabs will go down in the front. once u do that make sure there is little play on that large plastic piece u just moved up and very important make sure the wheels on the bottom are not engaged with the grove on the large plastic piece... and if its working correctly you should be able to move the plastic piece on the right side and it'll make the left side go the opposite way..

When reassembling bluray player you must take care to activate the side tracks (blackbars) back and forth , there should be very little play in the mechanism! there is also an aluminum wing towards the back underside of the blu ray drive. the wings have nipples at the tips that slide in the blackbars. finally put the top lid on, but dont screw it on tight yet. insert a dvd and then tighten the 5 black screws after smooth enrollment. hope this helps. if you like we can do it for you for $30
