    HE 40gb model will not accept discs. Tryed a good drive with this controller and same problem. Tryed this drive in another unit with another controller and will load disk but won't spin. Think the drive board is junk and a bad laser. How can the drive control board br replaced?

Hold the "Eject" button for ten seconds and try it. Oh and if you have a 40 gb model (2 USB ports) and the Eject button dosent work then try this, Turn off the back of the PS3 (Main power switch) and then hold the eject button (while the main power is off) keep your finger pressed on the eject button flick on the main power switch and it should sound like some HUGE fan don't get scared, wait until the fan stops turn off your ps3, start it up and insert the disk and IT SHOULD WORK

My playstation 3 cd drive will not play disc i just replaced cd


Check the disk for scratches. PS 3 &PS 4 Game systems may not play scratched games even if it is replaced. It is best to just buy the replaced game New to solve the problem.
Hope this helps you.

Stuck game in ps3


I was having the same problem... I don't know if this will help you or not, but I attempted to put in a second disc (obviously it wouldn't accept it and I did NOT let the 2nd disc fall all the way in)...

After removing the 2nd disc and then powering it on and then off again, I heard something "catch" and then when I pressed the eject button, it ejected the 1st disc...

Hope this helps!
