Question about Sony PlayStation® 3 (80GB) Console
My ps3 80g has been sitting for about 4months now seeing as there is a disk stuck in it.
I've tried holding eject not sure if I'm doing it long enough but it'll go green yellow green flashing red light.
I've also tried using my license to try to push the disk out or help pop it out, no luck, I've seen people say use a paperclip or tweezers or take the thing apart. My warranty is up, I mean I'm not really saavy with that kind of stuff but I am sure if I take off the screws and then put them back where I got them I should be ok.
Figured I'd make a post before I did decide to take it apart to see if anyone could help, any advice would be fine with me, other than send it to sony seeing as I don't really have the money to get it fixed through them.

Hi there James
it seems to me like you have the yellow light of death, but don't worry this is something that can be fixed.
You have two options here
Option1 you can send the console to SONY for $150, they will send you a refurbished model oh and all data may be lost. The whole process usually takes about 4-6 weeks.
Option 2You can fix the problem at home with a PS3 repair guide worth only $40 a 3rd of the cost of sony, the ps3 will be fixed within the next hour or 2.
Hope this helps
