Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console

1 Answer

I took my dvd apart to get some coins out & now it's unresponsive

I took my dvd apart to get some coins out (that my sons put in there). I put it back together and put in back in the ps3. But the dvd does not work any longer. I can't put a dvd in because there are some gray thing sticking up at the slot. The laser does not work. And when I put a dvd in it with the top off to see if it will sensor and spin, it still does not work. Once plugged into the system, the eject beep twice when I push the eject button, but the blu-ray drive does not react.

I am guessing you had a disc in the drive when you took it apart (or maybe the coins had something to do with it).

What you need to do is disassemble the Bluray drive again. With the top cover off of the Bluray drive, power on the PS3, then hit the eject button. The plastic guides should snap into the right position and then you can reassemble and it will work again.

My son put coins in the DVD part of our 2007 LT Suburban. I got them all out but now it just keeps saying ejecting and running and there is nothing in it. What can I do? Here is an example of the system...

The coins may have damaged the ejection mechanism in such a way that the entire unit will have to be replaced. Also, something other than coins could be causing the trouble.

Hello my youngest daughter put some coins in my ps3and I didnt notice it,so I went and put in a game, it wouldnt read it so I took the game out and picked up my consoul and realized there was something in...

Hi you probably still have some coins in there wedged. Easiest fix I've seen. I buy store returns and refurbish them. If your good with a philips screwdriver just take the console apart and get the coins out. Worst that couldve happened is the coins grounded out on the dvd drive board then the ps3 is useless bet sounds like theres still something in there.
