SOURCE: CD stuck in ps3 horrible noise cant get out HELP!!!

I had the same symptoms. The reason to my problem was that my 2 year old has pushed *three* disks into the console. I got them out through the following, admittedly pretty weird, approach: I hit the eject button, while gently prodding with another disk into the slot (at a slight upward angle). I could feel the disks inside the console rotating or vibrating as I was *gently* touching them with the fourth disk and hitting eject repeatedly. Somehow, the gentle prodding made one of the disk come out a bit, so I could pull it out easily. (I was pretty surprised when a second disk came out, and then a third.)

SOURCE: Clicking noise

The only way to fix it is to open up the disc drive and reset the the mechanism that sets the disc with the laser. As the system draws the disc in, it also raises the laser unit that is hooked to a gear driven mechinism. Sometimes when dropped, kicked, smacked...etc, the gears can come off of alignment. It's a pain to repair but really not that hard. You really need some patience and a to be carefull not to damage anything. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: wont play when i insert disks only the games on there

I had a similar problem. My PS3 did not start the disk based games. Those disk based games were not visible in the game menu.

I did not have problems with the normal movie DVDs or movie Blu Rays. Those were working fine. Also downloaded games were working ok.

In case you have the similar problem, you should try the following steps;

The PS3 has a special Recovery Menu, which you can access in the following way;:

1. Turn off Playstation 3.
2. Hold the power button down; the system will turn on and turn off once again.
3. Once the System has been shutdown, re-press you finger until you hear 2 consecutive beeps
4. When you hear the 2 beeps take finger off power button.
5. You will be prompted to plug in your controller via USB and then hit the PS button
6. The Recovery menu will pop up.

The current Recovery Menu supports:
• Restart System: Restarts the PLAYSTATION 3 System.
• Restore Default Settings: Reset all system settings back to default.
• Restore File System: Checks for corrupt/missing system files.
• Rebuild Database: Rebuilds the OS for the PLAYSTATION 3.
• Restore PS3 System: Fresh restore; Deletes everything and starts from Scratch.
• System Update: Update the PLAYSTATION 3 System

Select option "Rebuild Database".

After PS3 has executed the DB rebuilding operation, the disc games will be visible again in the menu and are starting automatically when inserted to PS3.

My PS3 freezes sometimes during games and on the main screen. I pulled the hard drive and re-inserted it, no change.


The best solution I can think of is to update the firmware to the latest edition. You may already know this, but hopefully the PS3 has adequate ventilation (ie. allow room for the unit to breathe)

The most common reason for the game not reading discs is a bad drive. The following website sells the drives and does installs:

store.richspsxparts.com/wiiredvddr

This drive should fix any reading issues you are having with your games, or issues inserting your games or ejecting them (or lack thereof). This is the entire DVD drive assembly mechanism replacement for your game including a new laser. If your discs are not ejecting, or you cannot insert a disc -- or you can insert a disc but it will not load, this is what you need to get your game going again!.

Good luck.

Well the most typical problem for something like this is that the Blu-ray software is either disabled on the Playstation console OR you need to update your Blu-ray software by allowing the Playstation to connect to an internet source

This will show you some general set-up settings to use :

This link literally in the first 30 seconds shows you how to allow your PS3 system to update the blu-ray player itself :

If your PS3 is not reading disc, but can play demos, music, etc. You need to replace your PS3's lens.
