I had the same issue, the only thing I was able to do if the eject method didn't work was disassembling the disc drive.

trying sticking something thin and firm in there gently.. try to feel for the bottom side of the disc. Press the eject button and press up a few times. This may take awhile. But Be sure to be very Very gentle while doing this.

SOURCE: We put a bluray disc

switch off power at the back. hold down eject button, keep holding, turn power button at the back to on. console fan will spin very fast ( at this time take your finger off the eject) then goes back to normal. try now to hold eject button for more than 9 sec; it will then eject your disc. if this dont help check this site: http://www.edepot.com/playstation3.html#PS3_Model_Differences
PS: most likely, you already have a problem with your Blu Ray laser (life span expired) or hopefully you will need to just re-allign your CD drive mechanics. dont open your console if you still covered with sony waranty. otherwise; give it a try; many youtube videos will show you how to do that.
Good luck

Ps3 freezing and disc wont read and skips


Hello,

You can try the steps below. Its from PlayStation Forum:

1. Turn off Playstation®3.
2. Hold the power button down; the system will turn on and turn off once again.
3. Once the System has been shutdown, re-press you finger until you hear 2 consecutive beeps
4. When you hear the 2 beeps take finger off power button.
5. You will be prompted to plug in your controller via USB and then hit the PS button
6. The Recovery menu will pop up.

The current Recovery Menu supports:
• Restart System: Restarts the PLAYSTATION®3 System.
• Restore Default Settings: Reset all system settings back to default.
• Restore File System: Checks for corrupt/missing system files.
• Rebuild Database: Rebuilds the OS for the PLAYSTATION®3.
• Restore PS3 System: Fresh restore; Deletes everything and starts from Scratch.
• System Update: Update the PLAYSTATION®3 System

If the above steps still does not solve the problem, then I think will have to update your Ps3.

Update your PS3 (in the settings menu the 1st option).

Go on the internet browser on the PS3 then go on the menu press triangle then on one of them there are delete cookies and the delete the others as
well as cookies.

You could also try this as well: put the PS3 on then press the eject button (with no disc in) then hold it and switch the PS3 off at the back with your finger on the eject button still holding it, then put it back on and the fan test should be working this may cool it down. It might be over heating.

But if your problem is not still solved, then maybe you should call sony for further assistance.

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...

Take care.
I wish you good luck

Ps3 will not eject


The only way to force eject your ps3 disc is to hold down the eject button for up to 30 seconds.
You could try ejecting from within the PS3 menu,
You could try resetting your console by turning it off and then holding the power button down for 30 seconds.

Lots of PS3 owners have reported this issue, and the only common solution is to send it in to sony as your disc drive is broken.

There is a disc in my ps3 however it won't eject. It flashes red light when I try to remove. I have tried to hold down eject for 10 secs however this step is not working for me. Any ideas? I would...


Please try the following to remove your disc :

Turn the PS3 off completely

Hold the eject button.

While holding the eject button turn the PS3 on at the back.

This method should make the PS3 force eject the disc. Don't worry about the fan going really fast, this is normal.

Disk won't eject


Ok, please try the following. Turn your PS3 off at the back so no lights on at all. While holding the eject button turn your PS3 on. It should now force eject the disc. Dont worry if your fan starts spinning super fast, this is normal when you do this.

You will need to turn your PS3 off at the back again as usually the front button becomes unresponsive after this method.

The game cd cannot be ejected from the PS3. When the eject button is pressed the red light keeps blinking.


Try the following solution.

Turn the PS3 off with the main switch on the back.
Turn the PS3 back on into standby (red light on)
While holding the eject button press the power button on the front of the PS3. This should initialize a forced disc eject.

The eject button is not working and the system wont recognize the disc so i cant eject it any ideas


Hi, i'm assuming you have a 40GB phatty PS3. Let's try this: - turn off the ps3 with the main switch, behind the console - press the EJECT touch-key on the front, HOLD on it while you turn on the console with the main switch... keep holding the eject key, if it'll work you'll get your disc out. If it won't work just try a couple of times more then if you don't succeed please advise me with more information about your PS3 model and I'll try to bring you other solutions :) Regards, Peter

Ps3 jammed disc


Unfortunately their is no step by step or guaranteed method to fix this. Here are a few things you could try: turning it off and on, press/hold the eject button, resetting while holding the eject button, shaking or tapping it a little while trying to eject it, holding it different ways ex. face disc opening down towards floor while gently tapping and pressing the eject button. Essentially do whatever you can to get the disc to jar loose, >but whatever you do, don't for any reason stick anything in the slot or try to open the case <Doing this will void the warranty for sure! If none of these work your last resort would be to return it for a new one (providing you still have your receipt and it's less than a year old) or take it to a costly repair guy.
