Why My Ps3 Keeps Ejecting BD?

This is a bad drive. I'd replace it immediately before trying anymore disks lest it damage the disks. Usually this occurs when there is a read error. It is also possible there is a disk stuck in the drive, jammed inside, the sensors, sensing the second disk automatically ejects the one you put in. Either way remove the drive and replace it with a PS3 replacement drive. (Note a way to test if it's a bad bluray lense is to stick a DVD in the drive. If it accepts the DVD and plays, then it can only read the DVDs and not the blu ray disks. If this is the case you've blown the blu ray laser, it still needs to be replaced.) If all else fails take it to a tech place and have them diagnose the problem.

We can not start any video games or movies,... we heard sound in the console, it is trying to read them but then in the main screen say open tray , like there are not disk in it. could you help us...

Your disk drive is going bad when it won't read any cd's, dvd's, or games it keeps saying open tray. There are different types of disk drives also, to determine yours go to DVD_Comparison.htm (new disk drives normally range between $40-60) and if you choose to repair it yourself you'll need a small flathead & philips head screwdriver and a very small torq bit set to remove internal screws. It takes about 20 minutes if you know what your doing and youtube has a number of videos to walk you through it if you need them.

Most likely your disk or dvd drive is dirty. Run the disk through a disk cleaner and run a dvd cleaning disk through your drive.

If that dos not work, try removeing disk, close drive, turn off console, unplug power supply, wait 10 or 20 seconds, then reconnect power supply and try again.

If that fails, assumeing other disks will read, your disk may have a major flaw. You can check with your local game store, they often have a machine that may restore your disk, (most places that I know of charge like 1 or 2 $).

Disk drive will not open

When I got this problem I put my xbox on its side then straight up and it opened. If You keep a game in it The drive should stay able to open.This is what worked for me.

Xbox 360's disk tray will not open

The motor that opens the drive tray could be bad or there could be something stuck in the gears. You may have to take the Xbox apart and pull out the drive and then take it apart to see if there is anything stuck in there.
