My 4 year old put a gamecube disk in my ps3. i got it out but now the ps3 wont pull the ps3 disks in. how do i fix this problem?


Well your disc drive is out of alignment kind of a hard subject to explain so please dont rate me low. Its more then likely the top of your disc drive is not aligned with the bottom of the disc drive you need them to be aligned so it will take discs in and out. Theres gears on the bottom of the cd drives lid. They meet with gears on the top of the bottom part and if they arent aligned they will not accept disc right. Take it apart and with the cd drive lid pulled up hit eject. This will bring the bottom part of the drive into place. Then just easily lay the top part back down and it needs to be directly from the top not side ways. Then when you have your ps3 cd drive lid on you can try to see if it accepts discs right. If it does your good to go if not you need to mess with it a little more. If you need more help explaining just ask I will try to find you a video showing how to do it.

The discs won't get go into the playstation3


If your ps3 disc drive still makes sound maybe the top lid of the disc drive is not in the correct spot. Have you opened it before? Thats how the disc drive will get out of line. If you havent opened it before it might just need a good cleaning and lubricated. How to fix it if its out of line is to take ps3 lid off take disc drive lid off hook it up and place a cd in it and let the drive accept the disc then put everything back together with the disc in the disc drive. Now it should work right.

Playstation wont take any disc it'l eject but not insert


i have seen this before... there is a little eye inside the ps3 bluray drive that senses when a disc enters and starts turning wheels with rubber feet on them to pull the disc in. when that eye goes bad for what ever reason the only way to get it to accept discs is to force it in slightly and it will spread the acceptance arms and pull it in. if it will not eject the disc correctly then the drive has been disassembled and needs to be reseated until it function right.

the acceptance eye is fairly cheap to buy online but can be a pain to replace if you dont know what you are doing.

I repair PS3's occasionally, mainly replacing PS3 laser's. But when I put the drive back together about 1 out of 4 drives does not accept the disc at all (it won't **** it in), or will accept the disc but...


start by the drive being in the empty position (pindel motor / tracks on a slant) then make sure the front loading sensors are pointing towards the front. Every gear / spring within he lid should relaxed. Mech should work perfect. Also flip the drive upside down and make sure the metal bar is locking underneath at the back.

Had a problem not loading discs like everyone else then quit reading discs sent ps3 to repair facility got it back and would play just fine until i put rockband 2 in then it froze and quit reading discs...


After Sony repairs your machine they give you a 90 day warranty.

Time to call them again.

Make sure you tell them explicitly that you want a NEW blu-ray drive installed.

Otherwise they'll just throw another used one into your machine and this will happen again.

Also NEVER update the firmware with a disc inside.

Best of luck!

Wont accept disc


Try this....after a lot of frustration and research, what i found on the internet for this problem was usless. I tried holding down the eject button for 15 seconds to reset the disc drive, still it would'nt accept the disc. As i literally picked up the phone to ring sony, as the ps3 was on standby i pressed the eject button multiple times and heard 2 beeps each time, still the system stayed on standby. After that i then tried just putting the disc in as normal as its on standby and the system booted automatically and accepted my disc. I hope this helps others, as mine now works perfectly.
