Get two butter knives from your kitchen and flip back the felt covering the slot. You will see the disc in there. Take the two knives and grab the disc with them. You will be able to pull it right out. Have done this couple times worked well.

Put a game disc into ps3 grinding noise wont show game icon

Make sure that you do not have the PS3 on it's side. Lay it flat. Insert a MOVIE DVD first and see if it will recognize the disc.
If you continue to hear a grinding sound when the ps3 is laying down that could only mean one thing, you need a replacement drive.

Dont forget to Always update your Playstation to the newest firmware.

Video games stuck inside and wont come out but was working just fine before this

Hi,, here's the solution. Remember that you must NEVER force the disk out by using hard objects/screw driver/plier or anything to pull the drive out. This will wreck the PS3 and its drive.

• Turn off your PS3 from back (the main off button)

• Put your finger on the eject button and once you do, push the switch at the back to switch the PS3 on, and then push the eject button. Hold it like this for fifteen to thirty seconds, or until the drive is forced open.

• The disc should come out now.

Thanks and take care

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

Can't play Rockband on my Ps3

Check the batteries in the music equipment. It sounds to me like the batteries are dead in the wireless equipment.

If that doesn't work, your PS3 may need serviced.

Best Regards,
