If you have no idea about opening your ps3 or just dont know about electronics, then take it in to a repair shop and have it professionally done, NEVER do it yourself,you may damage your ps3 console. good luck!

Is the unit still under warranty?

If it is, opening the unit will void it.

But either way you can take it to a repair center and have them open the box and fish out the nickel. Or you can do so yourself....

    I'll also add that attempting to shake it out may damage the unit...opening it up and taking out the coin is really the only option. You're just left with making the choice of taking it in or doing it on your own.

My son put a nickle into the wii

Hi Turfnuts, you need to take the Wii apart and get the nickle out before you play the game! (make sure you put the Wii back together first!)

My 2 year old child stuck a baseball card into the disk drive of my older son's PS3. How do I get this out? help. Thank you.

Could be tricky depending on how deep it went in and if it dropped down when it did. Have you tried unplugging all the leads, pointing the disk slot down and tapping it on the back or the sides? Maybe get a torch and look in the slot to see if you can see part of the card. Try to grab it with some long thin tweezers but make sure it's unplugged from power first of course.

I can't get the disk to's stuck in the ps3 and i can't turn it on or get the disk out! The led light keeps blinking on the ps3 and also on the controllers!!!

Look around your PS3 disk drive, depending on the type of PS3 there might be a small hole in which you can fit an a straightened paperclip. If there is just put in the paper clip and push until your cd drive pops out a bit.

My son has put two discs in ps3 and cant get either out now

I researched this problem since my twin 2 1/2 year old sons decided that my PS3 was hungry and needed a steady diet of 3 discs all at once. On a similar discussion board, someone discussed using butter knives to pinch the discs (one on top and one on bottom) and pull them out. This worked to perfection! Just be sure to pull the power cable from the back of your PS3 prior to sticking any objects (i.e. metal knives) into the front of it.

2 discs stuck in PS3

the disk feed system doesnt have enough room to feed 2 disks at once OUT of the system. you can try and tilt the system VERY CARFULLY and see if you can get the disks ejected. if not, you can just bring the ps3 into somewhere that can treat those types of things like a gamestop or call customer service to see what you can do.

1. Unplug PS3
2. Stand up so as you are looking down into the disc opening.
3. Fold out the felt that protects the drive.
4. Look for what resembles a disc. (You should see it)
5. Take to butter knives from your kitchen and with both hands use it like tongs to go into the drive and pinch the disc.
6. Pull out the disc and your DONE.

Worked for me a couple of times.
