I've seen this several times when watching burned DVD's. There are a couple of ways to get the cd out. First, try turning off the system and hitting eject to turn it on. Second, a forced eject from the system. hold the eject button down, turn the power off, (still holding eject) then turn the power on.(still holding eject) Third, and hardest way. Crack open the system and remove everything down to the top of the cd drive. then remove the top of the drive and take your cd out.(LAST RESORT)******WILL VOID WARANTY*********

A PlayStation 3 Blueray drive has two major connection to the motherboard, one of them is the data ribbon and the other one is the power cable, if the data ribbon is bad or disconnected the drive will not take a disc in or play it and when you try to insert a disc you won't see the blue indication light flashing, when the data cable is ok and connected and you see the blue indication light flashing when you try to insert a disc but the drive still doesn't take it that means something is wrong with the power that pass from the motherboard to the Blueray drive controller board or the drive's internal components, it could also be a mechanical problem if the drive's mechanism is stuck in a wrong position , if its a power problem then it could be a power IC on the motherboard or the controller board - extra diagnostic required - but if these ICs proved to be ok then you need to check the drive internally for a bad motor or sensor and see if there is other problem with the mechanism including all the gears. The Blueray drive represent half of the console's value and whether the problem is caused by the motherboard that doesn't supply power to the controller board or from the controller board that gets power but doesn't work or internal mechanism problem you will need a professional repair so I would recommend www.ps3specialist.com to fix this problem for you.

    Absolutely right Khaled! I was taking the question as far as the disk will simply not eject because it is not recognized as a playable disk. By all means, if the issue is greater than simply disk read error, have it professionaly serviced. ^^

Blu ray player won't play or eject disc


If you want to eject the CD you need to look on the front of the Blu-Ray drive for a small hole, about the size of a pencil-lead. If you open a paper clip and insert it, it should pop the drive open for you.

Ferguson TV DVD fault - won't play discs


Check its loading mechanism for proper disc loading. Replace the loading belt first and check. If it does not help you, insert a cleaning disc into it. If the fault is with accumulated dust or dirt on the laser pick up lens, it will be cleared out. If not, replace the laser pickup unit.

The disc tray on my iView 4000KR won't open. It has a disc inside that plays fine, but won't eject. This has never happened in the 18 months I've had the player.


Under each disk tray is a very small hole; this hole is for use when you experience the problem like yours.

Get a paper/money clip and straighten the wire; push the wire into this hole and your disk will open.

LAPTOP DVD DRIVE WONT PLAY DVDS ANYMORE


Drive is on its way. Typical behaviour. Try air dusting lens but unlikely to fix it. Very easy diy repair and cheap. EBay the new disc drive or refurbished. Then go to youtube. Nearly all laptop drives are the same to replace no matTerry brand. You could even get a faster drive.
