Ps3 will not eject


The only way to force eject your ps3 disc is to hold down the eject button for up to 30 seconds.
You could try ejecting from within the PS3 menu,
You could try resetting your console by turning it off and then holding the power button down for 30 seconds.

Lots of PS3 owners have reported this issue, and the only common solution is to send it in to sony as your disc drive is broken.

My ps3 has ylod and i cant get my game out is there any way i can open it.


Assuming it is one of the older style ps3's you can usually get it out without opening up the machine:

1. First shut down the system by flipping the power switch in the back off.

2. Hold down the eject disc button.

3. While still holding down the eject button, flip the power switch to turn back on your PS3.

4. When the green light comes on, wait a few seconds then tap the eject button a couple times. The fan will run on full power and the disc will eject.

The disc will not eject and the wii says to insert a disc


Try holding down the eject button for at least 10 seconds after turning on the console. If that doesn't work (or you've already tried that). Try the following steps.

1. Unplug Wii from power outlet.
2. Plug in Wii again.
3. Press power button.
4. Press Eject button for at least 10 seconds.
5. If the disc doesn't eject try holding down the power button for 10 seconds and then the eject button again.

If that fails then either return the console to exchange for a new one or contact Nintendo consumer support. Info follows:

Nintendo Consumer Service Contact Information:
Telephone: 1-800-255-3700
Email webform: http://www.nintendo.com/consumer/webform...

I wouldn't attempt to manually remove the disc (by trying to disassemble your Wii) as it may void your warranty. It could simply be a faulty console in which case Nintendo should replace it within 2 weeks (according to posts I've read). It seems to be a somewhat common problem.

If holding down the eject button doesn't work, there's really not much else you can do. Sometimes unplugging and replugging does the trick.

I've had problems with discs not ejecting and some combination of the steps I wrote above solved the problem.

It is possible that you inserted the disc incorrectly. That would account for the error message "Unable to read the disc" or "Disc could not be read." But it should've ejected on its own.

Before calling Nintendo Service you can also see if their Support site has any solutions. Try the link provided in the source.

Good luck.

After ejecting a disc and putting in another the tv screen displayed an error occurred and we cannot get the power button to shut off to reset it


Do you have any details on what the error was? If it was a 001 read error, or something related, where you often get a green or blue screen, you simply need to FIRST eject the disc by pressing the eject button, then hold the power button down for about 5 seconds and your Wii will shut down.

Unable to read disc I have 20 something games it wont read any of them


Here are the steps that worked for some:
1. Completely power down the console.
2. Power up the console and get to the Wii Menu.
3. Eject any disc currently in the console.
4. Press the eject button again, without any discs in the drive.
5. Insert the disc that you would like to play.

If this doesn't work then contact Wii customer support.

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!)
