Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console

1 Answer

Can't insert a disc into PS3 blue ray drive, part is blocking it.

I have the same problem. There is a white plastic part that pops up and blocks inserting a disc. If I simply pull out the blocking part it still doesn't accept a disc b/c there is a long black plastic part that is a part of the loading/unloading disc action and it is jammed in play now.

Hi..every ps3 game that i insert too play, it dosnt seems to be apairing up on the main menu (normaly after loading, the disc icon pops up and allows you to start game, but noting). but it seems to play...


Seems to me you ether got a bad drive in this unit or you got scratched or dirty disc. Normally you would try a blue ray disc in this to see if it works if it doesn ot work you might have a issue with your drive.

Tip

PS3 Makes a Grdining Noise - Here is the fix!


This tip is for people who have already disassembled their Play Station3 console and tried to replace the laser in the Blu ray optical drive.

If you replace the laser and then reassemble the Blu ray optical drive and the drive will no longer accept discs (the gears grind, or you can not push the disc in) follow these steps to resolve.

(Note: if you can not push the disc in because something is "blocking" the drive, refer to this tip: http://www.fixya.com/support/r4140687-bluray_drive_ps3_not_accept_discs_after )

Remove the metal casing of the Blu ray optical if you have not already done so. This requires removing the three black screws and the two silver screws on the bottom of the Blu ray optical drive.

With the metal casing removed,locate the 5 black screws on the top of the Blu ray optical drive to remove. There are two on either side and one at the back in the middle.

"Fold" the top over. There is no reason to remove it completely.

On either side of the drive inside, there are two long black pieces with "teeth" to interact with the gears.

You need to forcefully push the bar on the left side of the drive all the way back.

The white Gears in the front of the PS3 should be able to move freely (push on them and they should move back and forth to allow a disc to go in)

Make sure the black bar has one or two of the "teeth" in line with the black gear near the front of it. Verify that the white pieces will still move freely.

Turn on your PS3 and wait for it to power up.

Reassemble the Blu ray drive. You should test your Blu ray drive first before reassembling the whole PS3.

PS3 Won't accept discs - Here is the fix!

(NOTE: if your PS3 is not accepting discs because the disc just won't push in, not like there is something solid blocking the drive, or your drive is making "grinding noises" refer to this tip: http://www.fixya.com/support/r4321102-bluray_drive_ps3_makes_grinding_noise )

Remove the metal casing of the Blu ray optical if you have not already done so. This requires removing the three black screws and the two silver screws on the bottom of the Blu ray optical drive.

With the metal casing removed, locate the 5 black screws on the top of the Blu ray optical drive to remove. There are two on either side and one at the back in the middle.

Keep the drive together for now (do not take the top off) and reattach to your Play Sation 3 console.

Turn on your PS3 and wait for it to power up.

Now, take the top of the Blu ray optical drive by “unfolding it” so the top of the drive rests on the PS3 power supply.

With the top off, hit the Eject button on the front of your PS3.

The drive gears should “pop” back into place.

My game will not go in, like something is blocking it, I had to take it apart and repair the YLOD, and get the disc out manually since it was a blockbuster movie that needed to go back. The YLOD is fixed...


yes...inside your ps3 drive..there is an mechanical sequence...to pull and push bluray discs...if it´s out of the order..you got a problem..so you will need to readjust this mechanical rotine...check the sensors..check youtube for ps3 drive disassembly videos...

Game disc will not eject itself (eject not


Have you ever performed a force eject from the PS3 by holding down the eject button

If you have this can cause the tack to become unaligned and thus rejects the disk

If you are under warranty that's the way to go if not a repair shop

Or is you do know your way around a PS3 bluray drive then here's how I align my drive


The photo I can provide if you wish cant post it here

  1. Drive teeth can get terribly misaligned because of worn gear teeth, you may find it easier to reassemble the drive in the loaded position.
  2. With your Blu-ray drive open, remove the platform that holds the rollers. The only one screw is circled in red. Be careful about touching the plastic bumpers circled in blue. Short instructions under "Tips", in case you do.
  3. Twist the white gear denoted with yellow clockwise until the the gear separates from the black platform on the left hand side of the drive. Practically every gear in this area moves every other gear, but the white one seems the easiest to twist. Keep twisting until the two catches circled in green are completely lowered.
  4. Realign the black platform and twist the white gear counterclockwise until the two catches are fully raised. These catches keep you from inserting a second disc. You should not have to twist the white gear fully counterclockwise and it is a good idea not to. Make sure the left black platform is not tight against anything - especially the stuff towards the bottom edge.
  5. Pull the rollers outwards as the pink arrows indicate and screw the roller platform back onto the drive. When this is done, your rollers should be slightly loose. Work with the rollers and the white gear until they were just tight enough to loosely hold a CD as though the drive were reading it.
  6. Insert a junk CD along the top half of the drive as though the drive were accepting it. Pay attention to how the junk CD locks into place as though you still cared about it.
  7. While holding the CD in its loaded position, pop the top half of the Blu-ray drive onto the bottom half. You can shake it lightly, but if it doesn't come together smoothly, something might be misaligned. Go back and tweak until it comes together with relative ease. Don't forget the white magnet.
  8. Screw everything (that you feel like) back together, boot up your PS3, and eject your junk CD. It should come out smoothly and be re-accepted smoothly.
If this has been some use to you then a rating would be great

Thanks

Ps3 blu ray lens cleaning


What are you saying you screw up your $600 dollar console. OMFG i mean common man. Jeez luis. Well since you have your ps3 already open your ps3 system you should open again and extract cod4 out of your blue ray drive before you hook it up and all that. So take the game out connect the blue ray drive back put the system together and power it up. See if that works.
