They dont last forever, you might need to find a replacement for them. You could also open up the unit and make sure there isnt to much debree getting in the way of the contact.

Wats the best way to open up ur playstation i need to get game out, the eject button is not working,plus the power up only lasts for 5 seconds.


Before you start opening your ps3 I'd recommend trying to put it in service mode.
How to get access to service mode

1.Make sure the PS3 is turned off,
2.Press and hold the power button on the PS3 it will power on then power off.
3.When it's off press and hold the power button again until you hear two consecutive beeps.
4.It will ask for the controller to be connected via the USB cable,
5.Turn on the controller and you will have access to the menu.
From this menu you may be able to eject your disc, or even sort whatever the problem is with your ps3 (if it's a software problem).

Can i replace ps3 hard drive with a laptop hard drive?


Hi, don't think so, their configuration, are not the same. there are not even the same size, nor with they fit in,not just possible..

If you have a hard drive problem, you could try the steps below...

You can try the steps below. Its from PlayStation Forum:

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

If the above steps still does not solve the problem, then I think will have to update your Ps3.

Update your PS3 (in the settings menu the 1st option).

Go on the internet browser on the PS3 then go on the menu press triangle then on one of them there are delete cookies and the delete the others as
well as cookies.

You could also try this as well: put the PS3 on then press the eject button (with no disc in) then hold it and switch the PS3 off at the back with your finger on the eject button still holding it, then put it back on and the fan test should be working this may cool it down. It might be over heating.

But if your problem is not still solved, then maybe you should call sony for further assistance.

You can also get a replacement hard drive from sony ...
I wish you good luck

Please keep me posted,

Game does not eject from PS3 Console. All worked fine and then without warning, could not eject game. Any easy way or do I need to send it in for repairs?


Hello alfonzov and welcome to FixYa. Lets get your problem sorted out here. We are going to attempt what is called a force eject and it's pretty simple so just follow my steps below.

1- Press and hold the eject button on the front of your PS3 and do not let go until 10 seconds have gone by. Now this should eject the disc out automatically.

2- Next the best option would be to reboot your PS3 which can be done from the XMB or simply by pressing the power button.

If by any odd reason your PS3 will not shutdown there is also a force shutdown feature which can be performed by pressing and holding down the power button down for 10 seconds. If you have the original PS3 do not switch power off from the rocker switch on the back or you will risk corrupting your files.

Well I hoped that solved your problem and if you have any questions or concerns please feel free to use the comment button below and thank you for using FixYa.

The game cd cannot be ejected from the PS3. When the eject button is pressed the red light keeps blinking.


Try the following solution.

Turn the PS3 off with the main switch on the back.
Turn the PS3 back on into standby (red light on)
While holding the eject button press the power button on the front of the PS3. This should initialize a forced disc eject.

Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa

Disc not ejecting


Try the force eject (holding down the eject button for a few seconds until you see the blue light flash consistently) if that does not work try switching the power switch at the back ON while pressing the eject button at the same time causing the fans to blow at maximum rate & might eject your disc (Only let it blow for a few seconds on max power otherwise this could potentially burn up your graphics card!)

My PS3 wont turn on it just flashes a yellow light then red light that beeps cant get disc out


I found a way to eject the disk:
  1. Power off the PS3 on the main switch on the back of the console
  2. Press and hold the Eject button
  3. Turn on the main power switch
  4. The PS3 LED will go green and the fan will spin at max speed
  5. Wait a few seconds and press the eject button a couple of times, the disk should now eject
  6. watch the PS3 die after 30s or so…
This procedure did not fix my PS3 but at least I got my disk back before sending it to Sony for repair.

´play statio 3 does not eject


Most probably you should try hard resetting ur PS3. Like keep that power button pressed for about 10 seconds, try again later.

Not accepting a disk, acts like there is another disk in there


Hold the "Eject" button for ten seconds and try it. Oh and if you have a 40 gb model (2 USB ports) and the Eject button dosent work then try this, Turn off the back of the PS3 (Main power switch) and then hold the eject button (while the main power is off) keep your finger pressed on the eject button flick on the main power switch and it should sound like some HUGE fan don't get scared, wait until the fan stops turn off your ps3, start it up and insert the disk and IT SHOULD WORK
