Re: playstation 3

The helpful 6 year old loaded 2 discs into our PS3, of which one might be upside down. The sticky tabs on the bottom of the case were removed to reveal molded case, so how exactly do I tear this thing open and/or fish the discs out?

Disc won't play or eject

I've seen this several times when watching burned DVD's. There are a couple of ways to get the cd out. First, try turning off the system and hitting eject to turn it on. Second, a forced eject from the system. hold the eject button down, turn the power off, (still holding eject) then turn the power on.(still holding eject) Third, and hardest way. Crack open the system and remove everything down to the top of the cd drive. then remove the top of the drive and take your cd out.(LAST RESORT)******WILL VOID WARANTY*********

Movie disc stuck in playstation3

If you hear the drive making noise as if it is trying to push the disc out and just cannot,
try facing the facing the system down with the disc drive towards the floor and press the eject button.
If it doesn't work the first time, try a few more times until the disc comes out.

My game wont eject

Okay, the same thing happened to me and I managed to get the disc out. First is the blue light on. If it isnt then you should hold the eject button and use another cd and push it into the disc drive and gently push your stuck disc around. When you hold the eject button your PS3 will make a loud clicking sound but dont worry. Just keep using the extra disc and push the stuck disc around and it should come out

Disc is stuck in ps3 drive

trying sticking something thin and firm in there gently.. try to feel for the bottom side of the disc. Press the eject button and press up a few times. This may take awhile. But Be sure to be very Very gentle while doing this.
