Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console

Broken PS3 with disc stuck inside.

My husband and I have had this PS3 for almost a year, and we've had almost no problems with it. It's been working fine forever, and it turned on yesterday and worked beautifully, it didn't freeze, it didn't make any strange noises, nothing.

I tried turning it on today, and now it won't even respond. I tried unplugging all the cables, holding down the buttons, everything. I even tried a new power cable in a different outlet even, and that didn't work. It's still under warranty, but it has my workout disc stuck in it, and I would like to get that out before having to send it in. I've been looking for answers about how to get a disc out of a broken PS3 and I have found absolutely nothing helpful.

Please, if you have any ideas, I would love to hear them.

Power off your PS3 (important)
hold the PS3 up in the air with the loading slot facing down.
Power on the and start pressing the eject button (if you can call it a button)

It took a few times but it will work;

Hi guys, im from germany and this is how to get your game out of your dead ps3:
if you have no waranty the only way to get out your game is by breaking open your play, you can try unscrewing it however i didn't manage so i started cracking it open on the silver ledge on the front, pls be careful doing this!!! once you did that rip off the the playstation3 cover, under this you'l find some unscrewing to do... after this you'l be able to unscrew the BRdrive and unplug both plugs. now holding the Drive in your hand unscrew the two silver screws on the metal casing on the bottom, which allows you to fold over the casing completly. now you can see a little plastic housing which holds your game, its magnetic before you pull it out, and c your game, remove the cabled mircochip in the middle if the drive outlet, remove every last sticker and cable holding drive opening (cd outlet) together. then take of the round white plastic housing, now your cd is free but you wont get it out without scratches unless you jolt (rip) open the plastic cd outlet, carefully and only the front, so a 2nd person (who u will need), can lift the cd out while u hold the opening open.
Have fun getting your game back!!!

OK. Turn off the power switch at the back. Then, with your finger over the power sensor/button, turn on the switch. You should hear the fans spin HARD. Then keep tapping eject, then it will eject the disc.

I dropped my Ps3 accidently, and now it's behaving


if it does not read games anymore ( like if you insert a cd and it doesn't start working ) that means that the hard drive ( the part that reads the game discs ) is broken , why : because when you dropped your ps3 the head of the actuator arm scrached the platter ( the platter is sensitive , even a tiny scratch will stop the hard drive from working ) , so the solution is to change the hard drive , i hope i helped .

A game is stuck inside my almost new PS3 and it won't load. Is this a common problem? Is there a quick fix?


the motor that pushes the games/movies out could be broken. a quick fix is gently tapping the console and the disc should eject. since you state that it is almost new send it back to sony they will fix the motor for you under the warranty

My son has put two discs in ps3 and cant get either out now


I researched this problem since my twin 2 1/2 year old sons decided that my PS3 was hungry and needed a steady diet of 3 discs all at once. On a similar discussion board, someone discussed using butter knives to pinch the discs (one on top and one on bottom) and pull them out. This worked to perfection! Just be sure to pull the power cable from the back of your PS3 prior to sticking any objects (i.e. metal knives) into the front of it.
