    it does not take it in at all, yes can push it in but didnt want to push all the way, in case i couldn't get it out.

See insie the disc chamber there are 2 stoppers that pop up when they do you cant get a disc in. try this do a front reset. best way is to turn the power off in the back then put your finger on the front power switch hold it there then turn on the back switch while still holding the front wait till it beeps twice then release this should help. If fail do a system reset Settings>System Settings> Reset All Settings. reply if still fail will have more.

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.

    Hi I have a ps3 slim and it just recently stopped ejecting my disks.when I press the eject button the ps3 makes a clicking sound but nothing comes out.but if I turn it off then back on it makes the noise...


    He is full of **** trying to scam you. It sounds like your disc drive is out of alignment with the top part of the disc drive so the clicking your hearing is the bottom of your disc drive trying to eject and the top is holding its on as the top has sliding parts that meet perfectly with the bottom part of the disc drive so it sucks the game in and out. You need to open it yourself with a philips head screwdriver you dont have to worry about the motherboard or any other part just take the drive out undo the ribbons connect the drive to the motherboard then it should pop right out. Been awhile since I took a slim apart they dont break as often (yet). From here you should have a metal caseing over the disc drive maybe not with the slim. You pop the metal caseing off the you have a plastic disc drive. Take the top part off maybe requires small phillips screw driver. Since you have a disc in it when you take the lid off hook the cables back to the ps3 motherboard and to the cd drive. Now press eject with the top lid off. Then put the top lid back on and insert a disc it should work. Then just put it back together. Theres a little motherboard on that cd drive do not short it out on anything. You can do this if you cant worst is youll have to buy a new cd drive from the repair shop you mentioned. Then they should charge to much labor to put it back together as you had it apart when you got there. But you should beable to do it if you need help taking it apart just google or youtube slim ps3 disc drive repair or how to take apart slim ps3. Hope this helps if not let me know.

    My ps3 wont play blu ray disc


    The most common reason for the Wii 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 game 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 game going again!!!!!!!


    Take care.

    Disk wont eject on PS3


    hold down the eject button for 10 secs and it will force the disc out safely. Or use another disc just insert and and apply pressure upwards on the sensor and the disc will come out.

    Inserted blue ray disc into cold ps3, now dead dead dead


    Does it have a red light in front or nothing? If you don't have anything then your power supply has went out and you can pick one of those up for 40-50 dollars on eBay.

    Thanks,
