I researched this problem since my twin 2 1/2 year old sons decided that my PS3 was hungry and needed a steady diet of 3 discs all at once. On a similar discussion board, someone discussed using butter knives to pinch the discs (one on top and one on bottom) and pull them out. This worked to perfection! Just be sure to pull the power cable from the back of your PS3 prior to sticking any objects (i.e. metal knives) into the front of it.
ok sounds like you did every thing correctly and switching the board was in the right directio however the controller chip on your daughter board very well could be damaged since these boards rest directly overtop of the gpu and cpu the heat goes smack dab into the metal caing wich in some cases the case toushes the bottom of the daughter board resulting in a over heated controller chip
possible repair is
replacing that chip
with a infectus chip
i am still working on this problem
ive had 2 good repairs matching problem..hope this was helpful
There is no need to open up the console! Make sure the power is off! Get someone to hold the PS3
upside down (so the disc slot is facing down) then get 2 butter knives
insert them carefully one on the left and one on the right of the disc
slot. Now gently push the knives away from eachother so that the one on
left goes left and the one on the right goes right. You will feel them
push the brackets that hold the disc in. As you push the brackets you
will release the mechanism that holds the disc in and it should just
drop out. I did this with mine when my little boy decided to put a
credit like card in it!
It depends where the clicking noise is coming from. if the sound is coming from the front of your Console Chances are there could be something loose within the PS3's Blu-Ray drive, if its coming from the back, there could be something affecting the cooling fans such as something stuck inside like dust etc.
if your PS3 is able to play Games and Blu-Ray Discs fine, i would seek Sony technical support, just to make sure everything is okay. you wouldnt want your PS3 to break !
When you put the Disc drive back together, the mechanism probably did not go togther properly. You have to put it together with a disc in the drive. It is very hard to get the disc player to go back together properly I know. I needed three hands to do it. I done one. It took me several tries, but I finally got it. Another thing, since you have already disassembled your PS3 and need to do it again, go to Radio shack and get some Thermal heat transfer compound, Replace the compound between the heat sinks and processors. The original compound dries up after about a year and will kill your PS3 completely if you do not do this. Good luck,I know its not going to be easy.
