Re: jammed cd drive

  • Touch the eject button on the PLAYSTATION 3 system front for 10 seconds or longer to force the disc to eject. After removing and before reinserting a disc into the PLAYSTATION 3, turn off the system, and then turn on the system again to resume use.
  • If the disc cannot be inserted, you may need to send your system in for service, please click on the link below.

    When i updated my PS3 for the new Call of Duty it stopped reading the disks. It worked fine b4 the upload but now it wont play any of d games i have. Whats d craic, how do i sort this

    It might just be coincidence that your blu-ray drive has packed up at the same time as the update. Ring up Sony and tell them this and you could get a new console for free if your in the warranty.

    From what I understand its a problem with the backwards compatibililty(the engine/drive that lets you play ps1/ps2 games)on the 60g.Sony says they have never heard of this problem yet these models are no longer in production.I have had mine for 2 years and it died today,same problem.

    Reads Blu-Rays and PS3 games but won't read DVD's or CD's?!?!

    DVD portion of your blu-ray drive went out. It's a three part laser (cd / dvd/ blu-ray).

    The ONLY way you're gonna be able to fix it is by replacing the blu-ray laser or by getting your machine serviced by Sony.

    You can try a few of my tips from my guide here:

    PS3 wont read any games, dvds or cds

    It's the Blu-Ray Drive. They only last 1-3 years with average use. If your PS3 is less than a year old and you still have the original receipt Sony will repair the problem for free. Otherwise they're going to charge you $150 for the repair. You can reach them at: 1-800-345-SONY

    Unless you have a technical background in electronics there's nothing I would suggest doing. A firmware update and or CD /DVD cleaner disk will do nothing for your problem. I've fixed more than 100 PS3's with this exact problem so I know exactly what I'm talking about.

    Disk will not go into PS3 appears to be blocked

    Press and hold the eject button for around 15 seconds, this resets the cd drive and will fix your problems. Hope this helps
