Did you take the drive apart with a disc in it?

There are 2 little white "bars" that pop up when the disc is inserted most the time this happens when a drive is taken apart with a disc still in it and its not in the ejected state.

if you didnt take it apart then there is prolly a cd in there still and there is a problem ejecting, if you did take it apart here is how to reset everything to the right working state. sorry if its hard to follow.

to get it back to normal you need to reset it, if its under warrenty send it in cause the only way to fix this is by taking apart the ps3 and and the blu ray drive.

ussually this happens when a drive is taken apart with cd in and you remove the loading gears cover(the black piece with the levers and the wheels) off.

when you put this cover back on you need to make sure that the wheels are open all the way --- right wheels up and to the right, ..left wheels up and to the left. When its open like that you can see the gaps where those little white bars fit into just put it back on with it open and the bars in the gaps.

usually your looking at more steps though because the rest of the hinges on the lid wont line up. you can try to put the cover back on and eject and try loading an old or blank cd, blank because if something is off it may scratch it.

see if everything works.

if not you need to re-align everything to be in the ejected state. to do that you have to manually move the long black piece on the left side of the drive(with the cd inserting side facing you) and firmly but carefully push it twards the back of the drive and the laser should lower. it may make a poping noise if you go to far but should be fine its just the piece going to far out and poping off the gear. to test it push the cd guide wheels open and it should raise the laser and you can now lower it using the eject button. if it doesnt and you just hear a spinning gear gently nudge that long black piece on the left that you pulled back earlier towards the center of the drive and it should catch itself. after every thing raises and lowers fine make sure its in the ejected state and put the cover back on. should work now.

Discs won t spin


If your discs wont spin, I would contact sony if your PS3 is still under warranty. If not than buy a new PS3 or start buying your games digitally to play them with no disc.

Ps2 Disc won't respond to a Ps3 when inserted.


Only the first version of the PS3 had PS2 backwards compatibility, They did make a special edition Metal Gear Solid version with it included but other than that no other PS3 will play PS2 discs... No matter what Add-On you install.

PS3 WON'T PLAY BLU-RAY DISCS


The problem is all in the settings. You probably have a 1080i television that cannot display in 1080p. To fix this go to the main menu and go to:

Settings:

Video Settings

Then Blu Ray Disc and make it turn the Display BD in 1080p 24hz or whatever. Once you do that, start the Blu Ray Disc again, and you should be able to watch it. This all happened because your tv doesn't display 1080p.

Hope this helps!
