If they were inserted into the blu ray drive, you will need to dismantle it but before even turning it on again unplug it power it down and when you choose to do this make sure your not turning it upside down and back right up a bunch of times or trying to shake it to get them out there are alot of very sensitive parts in there.

You can look on google and youtube for some videos/pictures about taking about your ps3 i dont want to give specifics because some are better then others for each person depending on how much experience you have. Also make sure you are using the right tools (screwdrivers)

if you strip any of them its just going to be that much more time and money to spend.

Hello my youngest daughter put some coins in my ps3and I didnt notice it,so I went and put in a game, it wouldnt read it so I took the game out and picked up my consoul and realized there was something in...

Hi you probably still have some coins in there wedged. Easiest fix I've seen. I buy store returns and refurbish them. If your good with a philips screwdriver just take the console apart and get the coins out. Worst that couldve happened is the coins grounded out on the dvd drive board then the ps3 is useless bet sounds like theres still something in there.

My Daughter put a coin in the drive of my ps3

Remove the plug of the PS3 and remove the coverr to get the coin out or else it can do a lot of damage to the set.
So before it is used or powered on get to wriggle it out, might be lodged into some circuit parts,

I have a ps3 and it worked great until my 3 year old brother decided to put coins into it. I took it apart and got the coins out however I can't get it to play a cd or a game and it wont eject them either....

your PS3 circuit board or hardware might be damage the best thing to do is to bring it to a local electronic repair shop or service center near you and let them take a look to determine what is the actual problem...

whatever you do, dont turn on your ps3.
if your ps3 is in warranty, try to call Sony and tell them about the problem. If they wont accept it, go here.
Its a step by step tutorial on how to open the ps3.
Once open, remove all of the coins.

Good luck with your ps3. hate to see such a piece of machinery get destroyed.
