Oh dear, heh.

Sorry the only way to open up the costly blue ray drive on the unit is to take the whole thing apart after that you can take the blueray drive out and open it up.

taking the ps3 apart may void your warranty and you alone will be responsible for your actions if you decide to take the ps3 apart and also the blue ray drive inside.

heres the take apart guide, do at your own risk

other option is to shake them out from there, maybe aid with a flat object carefull with it.

My son shoved a d.s nintendo game in the disc slot on the nintendo wii. It is plugged in but it is not working. When we put a disc in the regular slot it is hard to put in but we manage it and get it in ,...

hi there,
it sounds like the drive is jammed a little bit or may have been knocked off it's track slightly. the only way to fix this is by opening up the console and then opening the drive and see what the problem is. I just hope that your son has not damaged the laser in the process, this could be why it's not reading the discs. the only way to know for sure is to open it up and see. if you are willing to do so yourself, you will find plenty guides on the net(youtube etc..) to open it up and the drive. If you do not want to do so yourself you will have to send back to nintendo or local repair shop. hope this helps.

Hi there i was just wondering whether u knew how much it would cost to get my wii console repaired? my 2 year old son decided to put penny into where the disc goes and i cant get them out!!

You should be able to find a tech that does TV work to open it up and clean it out. I would say $20-35

My daughter has put a coin into the wii thru the disc slot an now i cant get it out can u help

That will be very difficult, the Wii requires a special screw driver to get the face plate off. It is called a Tri-Wing screwdriver, you can google for it if you'd like to attempt to fix it yourself.

There are two other ways you could try to rectify this. Unplug all cables from the back of the wii, turn it upside down so that the cd-rom slot is facing the floor, and shimmy it around a bit to see if you can get to the point where you are sure the coin is agains the cd drive. Then you could carefully attempt to stick in some small tweezers and try to grab out the coin. Just don't stick the tweezers in more than an inch or so, that way you avoid doing any damage. If you still can't get the coin out you should probably call Nintendo, they can fix it for you, and probably for free. Their number is: 1-800-255-3700

Pennies in the slot where you put the discs

The system will have to be opened up. Blue ray player taken out and opened for pennies to be removed. Hopefully they didnt damage the lense or that will have to be replaced as well. You can email if you would like me to fix it. I am located in southern california and run a home based pc repair business.

Pennies stuck in WII

Hi khamillt It is possible to remove the pennies but keep in mind that you have to open the device. Your'e warrenty will be void !! If you technical knowledge is ok, then i recommend to view a youtube movie how to open the device. After that, you can look for the pennies (almost sure they will be in the DVD player).

PS3 jammed DVD tray

You should open it by removing the screws which are probably underneath the rubber feet. this will void your warrenty but im sure your warrenty doesnt cover baby brothers stuffing it with CD's. Also try giving sony a call though i doubt they will do anything. You could always take it to someone who could do it for you instead if you are not confident about opening it up.
