PS3 disc player problems

Ok i fixed my YLOD today and i plugged it in and it worked fine. I went to put a game in and it wouldnt take it. I then took it apart and put a disc in manuelly and put it back together. It did not read the disc but i put my finger of the eject button and it beeped like there wasn't a disc in there even though there is. I think that my disc player is not getting any power to it. Anyone have any ideas?

SOURCE: System wont load or eject any discs...

Remove the disc drive from the console. Remove the cover very carefull. Take the top part off (remove the 5 screws) and open the disc drive like a book.
Carefull remove the guide mechanism (the front part -1 screw).
The clicking noise is caused by the fact that the left side mechanism that raises and loweres the deck when the disk is inserted or ejected is stuck. Carefull push back the piece of plastic with teeth located on the left side of the deck (as you are looking at the disk drive the oposite side with the lens driving motor) until it clears complete the plastic round gear that drives that part.
mount back the guide mechanism, and the top part.
Attached the ribbon cables to the unit , power the console and keep the eject button pushed for about 10-15 seconds.
That will reset all the gears and stuff.
Worked for me when I experienced that issue.

Hi :)

Console problems are best explored with the manufacturer. EVEN WITH NO WARRANTY LEFT

For a PS3 you call 1-800-345-7669

These people will ask you for you Playstations Model Number.
(And provide directions to find it)

from there they can determine if the system has any manufacturing flaws by seeing when and where it was manufactured and they check that against previously reported system problems.

Now a decent company would send out a recall but in order to cut down on costs they wait for the people who actually call then replace theirs. (Most people figure my warranty is up so why call them??)

the fact is there might be two or 3 manufacturing errors in your system that you dont even know about and are dormant for now.

IF they determine that it is a less serious problem like a dirty lense (which is common with gamers) ask if they suggest a product and method dont just try and fix your own system

They will have you run a diagnostic mode on the machine via push button commands. If they determine that they as the manufacturer are at fault they will send you a pre paid shipping box to send the machine in with instructions on how to prepare it (IE Remove HDD, Retain Controllers, Games, Power Supply, and Component Cables)

If there is a small chance that the damage is End User Abuse, the company will warn you before you send it to them. If upon inspection and repair they determine this is true you will be charged a small parts and labor fee before being able to receive your system back.

99% of the time the machine is determined over the phone whos fault it is (and 95% of the time its theirs)

All of this will get you a "Refurbished Console" (IE someone elses broken one they fixed) usually with a new temporary warranty.



GL!! pls post a reply and tell me how it went and well go from there

Note PLEASE rate this advice as it will help me :)

SOURCE: jammed cd drive

  • Touch the eject button on the PLAYSTATION 3 system front for 10 seconds or longer to force the disc to eject. After removing and before reinserting a disc into the PLAYSTATION 3, turn off the system, and then turn on the system again to resume use.
  • If the disc cannot be inserted, you may need to send your system in for service, please click on the link below.

    Hi Sef,

    If you are getting the YLOD or yellow light I will run through what causes it and how you can fix it.

    Causes:

    The yellow light is caused by internal overheating and the main chips that take the damage are the GPU and the CPU.

    You need to stop the heat build up and you will be able to get back to gaming again.

    Solution:

    You can either send the console back in for repair and they will fix it for you, however it will take about 4 weeks to get this done and it will cost about $150 for the repair!

    Quicker Solution:

    For a faster way to fix it you can use a good YLOD Repair guide that will show you with videos how to stop the heat build up and get back to gaming.

    The important thing is to make sure that you get a guide that is up to the job!

    Return under warranty, ps3 uses a high powered blu ray laser that can melt the lens after extensive use, sony is working on a fix and will repair this for you for free unless you have opened the case.
