Re: jammed disk in PS3

You will have to break down the unit, take the cover off the BRD (blue ray drive) and physically remove the disc. It's probably the stepper motor on the slide assembly jammed. Good luck.

If I find a ps3 which also plays ps2 disc (earlier model with starting serial# CECHA), will it still have the blu ray capability?

It should, yes. Blue-Ray is integrated into all lines of the PS3 console, while PS2 compatibility is not. The reason for this is PS3 disks are along the same type of format as Blue-Ray, speaking generally of course. PS2 disks are a different format, and the type of player needed to use them even varies among the PS2 consoles. Some PS2 games can't be played on more then half of the ps2 product lines, it depends on how old the game and console both are.

Playstation 3 wont play PS3 Games

ok right so your ps3 wont read disks huh well first of all id like to say this has happened to me twice and it has worked perfectly for me and i quarentee it will work for you ...

first save all your data to a memory stick

secondly go to settings, system settings, and format your ps3 by clicking on full format this will delete all your filles :( but will refresh your ps3

BTW this formatting thing will take atleast 4 hours so just leave your ps3 on and chill out watch t.v or something :)

hope this helps

Playstation 3 broken!

what probably happened is when you dropped it which why was it dropped in the first place. the track that ejects the disk was probably knocked out of place resulting in the problem with the ejecting of the disk. the only thing that i can possibly think of is to check for screws and open up your ps3 then check the disk ejection system and see what was jumbled around. hope this helps dude.

Why does the ps3 box say you cannot play ps2 games

the reason why ps2 games won't work is bacause the lasers are different. the ps3 has a blue-ray laser while the ps2 hasn an infrared laser.
i don't want to get too technical, but basically the wavelenghts of the lasers are different, the blue-ray has a shorter wavelenght than the other, so it can't play the ps2 games and the ps3 games use a different type of disk.

New ps2 game won't play on older ps2 game console. Help!?

You're stuck not being able to play, you need to get the slim PS2's because they reconverted the discs for a new disc encoding.

Ps3 jammed disc

Unfortunately their is no step by step or guaranteed method to fix this. Here are a few things you could try: turning it off and on, press/hold the eject button, resetting while holding the eject button, shaking or tapping it a little while trying to eject it, holding it different ways ex. face disc opening down towards floor while gently tapping and pressing the eject button. Essentially do whatever you can to get the disc to jar loose, >but whatever you do, don't for any reason stick anything in the slot or try to open the case <Doing this will void the warranty for sure! If none of these work your last resort would be to return it for a new one (providing you still have your receipt and it's less than a year old) or take it to a costly repair guy.

Disk tray won't stay in

Your PS2 is definitely broken. Either send it in to Sony to be repaired or buy a new PS3. Bummer. Sorry to hear about this.
