Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console
Does anyone have details or instructions on dismantling a ps3, pdf files etc' disc stuck and tried the paperclip method with no luck
1. To remove drive you only need to remove small plastic door with fine flat screw driver under small **** towards the front of console then undo blue screw and slide drive towards front of console and pull straight out. Be careful not to press on any of the drive's surfaces especially where the label is as head or platter will be damaged!
2. To dismantle the rest of the console, remove sticker on left side of console, remove rubber plug/ foot, undo tamper proof screw with correcy T15 star driver, and slide false plastic cover towards you. Then you have several philips head screws all marked with arrows to undo after which the top can be removed straight up. When removing or disturbing the optical drive be careful not to damage the heat transfer pad under the drive as the electronics of the drive will then overheat. The rest should be easy!
