Question about Sony PlayStation® 3 (60 GB) Console

Open Question

Last night I had problems with ejecting the disk out of the console. It would make the noise as if the game was ejected but the game didn't come out, so what I did was start the game, then hit quit game and when it was going back to my home page< I hit eject and the disk came out. But now the system wont allow me to insert a game because the system thinks there's a game in it already (the blue light is even on as if there's a game in it) and when i hit the eject button it makes this weird noise and the blue light goes off but I still cant but a disk in because it wont grab the disk and I didn't want to force it in. PLEASE HELP ME IF YOU CAN!!!!!!!!

SOURCE: cd drive won't pull disc into console

Do you have a warranty? If you do, go to the place where you got it and have them check the inside. You may have a broken gear. That could be why it does not take in the disc or eject it. =D

SOURCE: game disc will not eject itself (eject not

Have you ever performed a force eject from the PS3 by holding down the eject button

If you have this can cause the tack to become unaligned and thus rejects the disk

If you are under warranty that's the way to go if not a repair shop

Or is you do know your way around a PS3 bluray drive then here's how I align my drive

The photo I can provide if you wish cant post it here

  1. Drive teeth can get terribly misaligned because of worn gear teeth, you may find it easier to reassemble the drive in the loaded position.
  2. With your Blu-ray drive open, remove the platform that holds the rollers. The only one screw is circled in red. Be careful about touching the plastic bumpers circled in blue. Short instructions under "Tips", in case you do.
  3. Twist the white gear denoted with yellow clockwise until the the gear separates from the black platform on the left hand side of the drive. Practically every gear in this area moves every other gear, but the white one seems the easiest to twist. Keep twisting until the two catches circled in green are completely lowered.
  4. Realign the black platform and twist the white gear counterclockwise until the two catches are fully raised. These catches keep you from inserting a second disc. You should not have to twist the white gear fully counterclockwise and it is a good idea not to. Make sure the left black platform is not tight against anything - especially the stuff towards the bottom edge.
  5. Pull the rollers outwards as the pink arrows indicate and screw the roller platform back onto the drive. When this is done, your rollers should be slightly loose. Work with the rollers and the white gear until they were just tight enough to loosely hold a CD as though the drive were reading it.
  6. Insert a junk CD along the top half of the drive as though the drive were accepting it. Pay attention to how the junk CD locks into place as though you still cared about it.
  7. While holding the CD in its loaded position, pop the top half of the Blu-ray drive onto the bottom half. You can shake it lightly, but if it doesn't come together smoothly, something might be misaligned. Go back and tweak until it comes together with relative ease. Don't forget the white magnet.
  8. Screw everything (that you feel like) back together, boot up your PS3, and eject your junk CD. It should come out smoothly and be re-accepted smoothly.
If this has been some use to you then a rating would be great

SOURCE: My ps3 wont eject and makes a clicking noise

On the bottom of the PS3 should be the hotline number for the system. Contact Sony so they can get the issue on record and start a case for you. Hopefully you're still under warranty.

Eject button does not eject the disk. How can I

You just might have to take the Wii apart and get your disc. Your eject button may be bad and they are pretty cheap to replace.

Disk won't eject. The console makes a rapid clicking noise when I try to eject.

Used a paperclip to grab the middle of the disk that was stuck inside. Pulled it to where I could grab the disk and mannually pulled it out.

My Wii Reads Disk, but WONT EJECT IT

If it is still under warranty use the link provided

Nintendo Support

Fill out their form and be very descriptive when asked and they will repair it.

Alternatively you may choose to open the case and examine the damage - This is unadvisable as you warranty will be void and you could further damage the console

Ps3 problems

Make sure all disks are ejected first. Try holding down the power button on the front near where you put disks in. Keep it held down until it beeps a second time (5-10 seconds after the initial/first beep). Get updated to version 2.2 (came out last night). Good luck!!
