Turn the main switch off on the back of the unit then place you finger in the eject switch now turn the main power switch on the back of the unit with out removing your finger the unit will power on now just keep your finger there for a few seconds until the blue light start blinking now take your finger off if there is a disk it will come out if the bluray drive needs to be reset it will reset by doing this

    After all this, you must turn the console off again (via switch in back) and turn back on. Then power on as normal.

I had the same issue as described before. There was no disk in the console and it would not accept any disks in to the slot as normally it would. My solution, although rough, was as follows:
Take a disc (any type) and push it in as far as you can (as my auto feeder was not pulling it in)
Take a second disc (or similar object) and push the disc the rest of the way in to where it would normally stop
Eject the disc as normal by pushing the eject button on the console

Not sure why, but this resolved my issues for now. Maybe it realigned the mechanism or reset it somehow but it, at least for now, saved me $150.

Hope this helps....

Take a butter knife and very gently insert it into the disc tray on the right hand side and you will feel an arm that moves out to the right further push this lever a couple of times and you will here the playstation trying to take in a cd then actually insert the disc. This worked for me and if the disc does not eject repeat this making sure to insert the knife above th cd. Dont know why this works but it does. And you can feel free to call me an idiote but this really works.

My Averstec 6200 series laptop won't come on


Recovering the DVD disk is easy, open out a paper clip, look on the DVD player draw and you will see a tiny hole, gently insert the paper clip and when you feel a little resistance give a gentle push. This will release the door mechanism and allow you to pull the draw out and remove the disk.
It sounds like the machine has major overheated, check the rear air vents for signs of dust, clean them out and try again.

I just finished watching a movie on my ps3 and now it wont read any discs


First try putting the movie you watched when this happened, back into the PS3, see if you are able to watch this movie and if it reads this particular disk... if it will, contact the company and tell them that your PS3 isn't reading any of the disks, they will send you a box and repair your PS3 free of charge and send it back to you in about 3 weeks.

Hope this helps :)
