Try switching off the system in the back and then powering it back on. If that doesn't work, you can try taking it apart.

If the system is out of warranty and you're feeling bold, you can take the system apart and manually realign everything. You can find a video showing you how to take it apart here.

And here's some instructions on repair.

Best of luck!

The disk tray wont stay closed the open/close button flashes and opens again.

It seems there might be something jamming your disc drive from completely going in, or your disc drive has fallen off the track and might need to be realigned.

Tips on your console.

  1. Make sure all the plugs are in the back of the tv and console and everythings working (including the sound) .
  2. make sure you put the disk in properly or it could jam and wont open.
  3. if the disk sais error then the disk is buggerd/ broak.
  4. Make sure the memory card in the console has space to save more games, if not you can choose to delete stuff to make space or buy another card and put it in slot 2.
  5. sit back with food and drink and enjoy playing your playstation Xbox etc and enjoy :).

My 2 year old jammed something into the disc drive and im not sure if it got stuck in there or not. Either way the unit will not accept a disk now of any sort you can push it in there but the drive is not...

Okay this is what you do get a tooth pick and pushit in thecd slot halfway and get a flashlight and look inside it to see if there is anything in there if you cant seeanything take it apart an look inside. Its not that hard all you have to do is unskrew the 4 or 5 skrews on the bottom of the console and maybe the ones on the side.

Playstation 2 wont play

Could be a number of things... open the door and see if the belt that drives the door is jammed or even the driving motor. that would create a buzz.

Sony play station 2 disk holder wont open

I think, either the "hook" that holds the cap of the holder has been stuck or broken and jammed...have you tried opening it? I recommend having a "fixer" do the job and check it for you...

Jammed disk in PS3

You will have to break down the unit, take the cover off the BRD (blue ray drive) and physically remove the disc. It's probably the stepper motor on the slide assembly jammed. Good luck.
