SOURCE: Ps3 disc drive not working.

You've done everything I would have done honestly. Take a can of air and blow it into the drive to make sure dirt or dust isn't on the laser which could affect if it sees discs or not.

The better thing to try if you are good at opening up your ps3 and then removing your drive and opening that is to take a damp q-tip with a bit of glass cleaner and clean your laser in the drive gently. Then put the drive back together and hook the cables back up to the ps3. You can leave the cover to the ps3 off for this step. Turn on the ps3 and try different blu-ray, dvd's, music cd's, game discs, etc. If it still doesn't read any of them then either the laser or the drive i bad. If it reads some discs and not others then its a weak laser and the laser would need to be replaced.

If you have to replace the laser or the drive, you can do a search on Ebay and usually find them fairly cheap.

Hope this helps and let me know if I can be of further assistance.

SOURCE: My PS3 Destroyed a DVD

The second you open that ps3, it will void the warranty completely, so I would put doing that off unless it's a last resort effort. Bringing it in MAY be your best choice.

SOURCE: when i turn console on it doesn't read disk, yet

Sounds like the laser or the drive itself is going bad. If you can get your hands on another new or known working drive, replace it and see if you get the same problem if you do then its gotta be a main board issue then at that point you would have to decide whether you can replace the main board without it costing alot.

You can also buy replacement lasers off of Ebay as well if it turns out to be a laser problem but you have to know what your doing to get the lasers replaced properly.

SOURCE: My console doesn't recognize any games or movies

try getting a disc drive cleaner from any local Electronics retail store such as best buy, walmart . If that doesnt work you might have a broken optical lense and you will have to either take apart your console or call ps3 customer support and send your system to them.

The game cd cannot be ejected from the PS3. When the eject button is pressed the red light keeps blinking.


Try the following solution.

Turn the PS3 off with the main switch on the back.
Turn the PS3 back on into standby (red light on)
While holding the eject button press the power button on the front of the PS3. This should initialize a forced disc eject.

Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa

hello, is the drive now stuck won't eject with the button? if so try using paper clip in the tiny hole close to the eject button. take a paper clip and straighten it and then gently insert in tiny hole keeping straight and leveled, after is inserted in to drive about 3/4 of an inch you will feel little resistance and then gently press it to eject the drive manually.

I hope that what your question was, if not post back.

DISC STUCK


Hi Ernie,

There should be a tiny little hole on the front of the CD drive, next to where you would usually press the button to eject it. Turn the laptop off (or at least wait until the CD stops spinning) and insert a straight paper clip into the hole. You will have to insert it perfectly straight and apply a little pressure. Doing this should manually pop the CD tray open.

Hope the helps!

Wii console will not eject disk


I managed to eject a WII disc out manually very easily:
- Disconnect the drive
- You see the white plastic mechanism on your right side and the wheel connected to the motor
- turn the wheel towards the back side of the drive while pushing the half inch square plastic piece towards the left.
You will see the disc coming out while you are turning the wheel.

Cd stuck


Well, Recently the same thing happened to me, My bro dropped my WII on the floor and the eject button on it got stuck i was soo mad!!!
I tried loads of ways nothing really hard, just follow this and hope fully the WII will eject:

1.Make sure the WII is stood up properly.
2.Then switch on the WII (As i said early the WII won't eject the CD.
3.Now look near the eject button if it is stuck follow (A) or if not coming out follow (B).
(A1).Right if it is stuck and not coming out then the top bendy bit of the eject button put your nail through it and press it down it should eject but after a while it did not work any more for me :(.
(A2).Now, Disconnect all the Cable's in the WII not TV leave it for a while (and don't smash it again!), After a while approx 5 Min's plug 'em back in, switch on the WII then press eject hopefully that will work :D.
(B1).Now if it does not come out either look inside the drive or WII (I don't suggest that) or just do what i did with A2 hopefully that will work.

Hope your WII works by now and enjoy ejecting cd's from your WII but 1 more thing before you go (DON'T BREAK YOUR WII AGAIN OR YOU WILL HAVE TO DO THIS ALL OVER AGAIN :P AND IT MIGHT NOT EVEN WORK IF SMASH IT TO MANY TIMES!!! SO BE-CAREFUL!!!!
