This Happened to me as well =(

Here is what you gotta do:

*make sure you are powered down the entire time*

I was able to remove the discs by using a pair of really flat, flexible tweezers. The kind that come in a computer repair toolkit. Regular tweezers had too much of a bow in them to fit in the slot loader.

I also tried to "sandwich" the discs between a pair of butter knives. I pulled two discs out at once, and once they were out there was was only one disc in the machine, I turned it on, and it loaded then ejected just fine. PS3 seems to be in perfect working order.

You could also try to use a paper clip to "Hook" the hole in the center of one of the disks and gently pull them out one at a time.

If you really really and I mean really need to take it apart there is a wonderfully written tutorial HERE

I wish you the best! I hope this helps, Take Care. =)

Didn't eject disc before taking apart to clean laser


there is a certin tool that PS use's to put the ps3 together that stops that part because its a cd restrictive plate that stops multple cds to be in the PS3 at a time. Ur best bet would be to either send it to P.S and have dem fix it for you or bring it to a gamestop or any other gaming store.

PS3 Playstation 3 Disassembly, Forgot to Remove disc.


its not the drive thinking there is a cd in there. when you re assembled it the motor that draws the disc in would have moved slightly so it thinks it pulls the disc in when it hasnt actually reached the end. take it apart and ensure it is retracted completley befor carefully re assembling. good luck

Try using a lens cleaner CD first. Most of the time a PS3 wont read BD because it's malfunctioned so you may have to send it in to Sony.

Jammed cd drive


  • Touch the eject button on the PLAYSTATION 3 system front for 10 seconds or longer to force the disc to eject. After removing and before reinserting a disc into the PLAYSTATION 3, turn off the system, and then turn on the system again to resume use.
  • If the disc cannot be inserted, you may need to send your system in for service, please click on the link below.
