You'll have to take the console apart.

Here's a video guide.

Keep in mind you'll need a special T10 Hex screwdriver with a security hole like THIS one. Otherwise you'll have to break / pry off the top cover of the PS3.

OH but I just remembered. If you have a flatblade screwdriver that's just the right size you can jam it into the security screw and unlock it that way as well, but be carefull you could strip it!

Here's a guide that will help you out the rest of the way.

One more thing, guide doesn't include how to open the top of the console but it's common sense. Just unscrew all of the top screws ;)

Hope this info helps.

Why don't the movies work right?


Is it a DVD you're trying to play? It sounds like a dirty/scratched DVD. If you're trying to stream from the internet, I'm amazed it let you play anything at all. If you're trying to stream from a website, it will hardly ever work. It will work great from Netflix, or Hulu plus, but never directly from a website. The PS3 simply can't handle it.

DVD will not stop reading and does not eject.


I have one that did the exact same thing I would put the disk in and it would just continuously read and would not play and a regular dvd cleaner would not work I have3 to take it apart and clean every bit that was cleanable with a Qtip and alcohol and then afterward would get stuck and for a while I had to get it started manualy to get it to open but it played and stopped doing all the reading and done its job then to after a week or so I no longer had to help it open and it was not all the time either hit and miss but today it is doing fine and it was a cheap one and is old but we still watch movies on it and it has not given me any more trouble. Hope this works.

DVD drawer will not open - stuck dvd inside


My only suggestion is to press and hold the eject button for a period of time (15 - 30 seconds). This might unlock the drawer. If not, I would contact Bose Customer Service directly.

Dvd player will not open disc, display lock


Sound like it either has one or two problems, the door is stuck and or the door eject motor has failed. Look in the front to the player for a small paperclip like hole, and use a paper clip to manual eject the and engage the loading mechanism usually located under the door for most cases. Check you manuals troubleshooting section for manually ejecting a CD..

Please leave comment.

Dvd player not working on 06 Honda Odyssey


The Honda dealer just wanted to replace my entertainment center without even troubleshooting and I wasn't convinced that it was "broken" so I found the FIXYA website and saw that others had the same problem and I followed their instructions and it now works fine. I am going to call the Honda dealer to complain because they should have known this.

We simply pulled the fuse out and put it back in and then reset the radio code!

DVD Stuck in Player


While the above problem is not in the manual, I would try pushing and holding down the Open/Close buttton for an extended period to see if the unit will 'unlock' itself.

LAPTOP DVD DRIVE WONT PLAY DVDS ANYMORE


Drive is on its way. Typical behaviour. Try air dusting lens but unlikely to fix it. Very easy diy repair and cheap. EBay the new disc drive or refurbished. Then go to youtube. Nearly all laptop drives are the same to replace no matTerry brand. You could even get a faster drive.

Movies on my recorded discs freeze after a few minutes of play


Sometimes this unit gets "confused" - not sure why -- but try first using a CD cleaning disk and let it start and stop a couple times (sometimes lens gets dirty and does this) - if that doesn't help then try unplugging unit and leave unplugged (from wall socket) for about 30min then plug in, set local time and then see if the disks play okay - sometimes this "resets system"
