Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console
There is a sd card stuck where the cd should be. There is also a disk there. How can it be fixed ?
My boss' son left a Playstation 3 on my desk to ask me to take some disks from the slot where his 2 years old daughter (my boss' granddaughter) might insert some disks into it. Knowing opening it may void the warranty, so I figured out an alternative, I hope it will work for a SD card.
1. Get a wide rubber band (the wider the better), the thickness should be 1 mm -2 mm thick. I used a 5mm wide rubber band loop and cut it to form a rubber strip.
2. Use a toothpick to gently push an end of the rubber strip into the disk slot. About 1"-2" of the rubber strip should be pushed into the slot.
3. Remove the toothpick, with one end of the rubber strip in the slot, then pull out the rubber strip quickly, the stuck disk may come out with the rubber strip. In my case I got two disks out from the slot.
Note: There might be risk of damaging the laser head in the slot, I have no idea where the laser head docked. If you are not sure, contact Sony to seek a solution. I am not responsible for any damage when using my method.
You can also overlap the rubber strip to form a horizontal U shape, and use a toothpick to push the bottom inside the U shape strip into the slot, and pull the bottom end of the U shape strip out suddenly, the disk will come with it.
Remember to clean the rubber band before you do it, free from powder, and should be dry.

If you can see the SD card, Get a toothpick and wrap Tape onto it then reverse the tape so that you have sticky on outside. See it you gcan retract it that way. You risk damaging the Disc eject system if you try to force the disc to eject by pressing the eject button more than 10 seconds. Once you get the SD card out you can do the 10 second eject button thing.
