My ps3 crashes whenever I insert or remove a disc

Every disc I insert or remove crashes my ps3. If I eject the disc and leave it sat there without actually removing it and then restart the ps3, it takes the disc and I get the message that it didn't shut down properly and I need to check if it was corrupted. If I accept this it crashes again on restart. However if I click 'back' it loads as normal and everything is fine until I eject the disc. This happens every time and no matter whether the disc is cd, dvd, blu-ray or a game.

Disc Stuck In 60G Console


  • Press the "Eject" button on the PlayStation 3 console and hold it for at least 10 seconds; if your PS3 has the "force eject" feature included it will eject the disc regardless of whether the console is frozen or not. Turn off the console and turn it back on before inserting new discs.


  • Unplug the power cord and any other cords from the PS3 console if the "force eject" feature does not work and you own a PS3 Slim. Turn the console upside down so that you have access to the bottom of the console.

  • Locate the small compartment door on the bottom of the console. Remove the door by pulling it up and off the console; a blue screw and a small hole should be visible inside the compartment.

  • Insert a Phillips-head screwdriver into the hole. Turn the screwdriver in a counterclockwise direction to manually eject the disc. Once the disc is removed, replace the compartment door and turn the PS3 console back to its correct position before reconnecting the power cable and any other cables you previously removed.

    PS3 - Game crash followed by disc read error


    The update corrupted your hard drive that's why it's not loading any disc.Yes,Restoring the system will work but it will destroy all your saved game data.Updating the system will not remove the hard disk defect.There is only one solution,Reset it.

    Wheni put a disc in the ps3 it does not load up so i cant play on games my software version is 3.21


    hi,

    The most common reason for the PS3 not reading discs is a bad drive. The following website sells the drives and does installs:

    store.richspsxparts.com/wiiredvddr

    This drive should fix any reading issues you are having with your games, or issues inserting your games or ejecting them (or lack thereof). This is the entire DVD drive assembly mechanism replacement for your PS3 including a new laser. If your discs are not ejecting, or you cannot insert a disc -- or you can insert a disc but it will not load, this is what you need to get your PS3 going again!
    Hope this will help...

    PS3 Won't Take Disc!


    Hi, I think it was me who had helped you before. I will be glad to help again. Ok, first you have to tear apart your PS3 (just like when you cleaned it). Now looking at the rollers and "dogs" make sure that they are closed and not open all the way like when a disc is in it. Look at the flap on the top too make sure it opens and closes freely. Next, PLEASE BE CAREFUL!! Plug your PS3 in and try to hit the eject button, if it is reset and ready for a disc it will beep twice when you hit the eject button without a disc in it. Place the top back on the he DVD drive and try to insert a disc. At this point it should take it. If not then try hitting the eject again. Once the PS3 resets and takes and ejects discs again, then you can put it back together.

    Clicking noise


    The only way to fix it is to open up the disc drive and reset the the mechanism that sets the disc with the laser. As the system draws the disc in, it also raises the laser unit that is hooked to a gear driven mechinism. Sometimes when dropped, kicked, smacked...etc, the gears can come off of alignment. It's a pain to repair but really not that hard. You really need some patience and a to be carefull not to damage anything. Hope this helps.

    When i entered the cd to my ps3 it wont eject anymore and it does'nt appear in the menu???


    If the PLAYSTATION 3 does not recognize the disc: To PS3 Support Site

    • Remove the disc and reinsert it.
    • If the disc has a label, insert it with the label side up.
    • Check whether the disc is scratched or dirty. If dirty, wipe it gently with a soft cloth.
    • Make sure the disc has not been exposed to high temperatures, high humidity or direct sunlight. When discs will not be used for an extended period of time, store them in their cases. Stacking uncased discs or storing them at an angle can cause them to warp.
    • DVD-R/DVD-RW/DVD+R/DVD+RW discs that have not been finalized cannot be played.
    • When outputting DVD content or PLAYSTATION 3 format software in SD resolution, only discs recorded in the NTSC standard can be played.
