Hi, i'm assuming you have a phatty PS3. Let's try this:

  • - turn off the ps3 with the main switch, behind the console
  • - press the EJECT touch-key on the front, HOLD on it while you turn on the console with the main switch... keep holding the eject key, if it'll work you'll get your disc out.
  • - If it won't work just try a couple of times more then if you don't succeed please advise me with more information about your PS3 model and I'll try to bring you other solutions :)
Regards, Peter

    Hi Peter, I was having the same problem and tried your solution. When I did as you described, the fan blew really hard for about 20 seconds and then the system turned off, the red light blinking again. I am able to eject discs when the system is on, but only by holding down the eject button for 15-20 seconds. This happed before, but then stopped, and is now happening again. I have an 80g model I purchased about 3 months before the slim was released. Thanks!

Disc Stuck In 60G Console


  • Press the "Eject" button on the PlayStation 3 console and hold it for at least 10 seconds; if your PS3 has the "force eject" feature included it will eject the disc regardless of whether the console is frozen or not. Turn off the console and turn it back on before inserting new discs.


  • Unplug the power cord and any other cords from the PS3 console if the "force eject" feature does not work and you own a PS3 Slim. Turn the console upside down so that you have access to the bottom of the console.

  • Locate the small compartment door on the bottom of the console. Remove the door by pulling it up and off the console; a blue screw and a small hole should be visible inside the compartment.

  • Insert a Phillips-head screwdriver into the hole. Turn the screwdriver in a counterclockwise direction to manually eject the disc. Once the disc is removed, replace the compartment door and turn the PS3 console back to its correct position before reconnecting the power cable and any other cables you previously removed.

    Console won't eject disc or shut down


    Same thing happened to me a while back. First try unplugging the Wii for 30sec-1min. Then plug it back in, turn it on, and then hold the eject button for 10 seconds. If that doesn't work try it again with the Wii in a different position. (Horizontal instead of vertical or vice-versa). If that doesn't work it might be a disc drive problem and it might have to be sent to nintendo.

    The wii is giving the message "unable to read


    • This message can display if you eject a disc during game play. If this is when the message displayed, make sure that you return to the Wii Menu before changing discs if you wish to play a different game.


    • If your Wii console is laying flat, it may be positioned upside down. Ensure that is positioned right-side up: the game disc slot should be above all three buttons and the SD Card slot.

    • Ensure that you are properly loading a Game Disc.
      • If your console is placed vertically, the disc label will face to the right.
      • If your console is placed horizontally, the disc label will face upwards

    Ps3 jammed disc


    Unfortunately their is no step by step or guaranteed method to fix this. Here are a few things you could try: turning it off and on, press/hold the eject button, resetting while holding the eject button, shaking or tapping it a little while trying to eject it, holding it different ways ex. face disc opening down towards floor while gently tapping and pressing the eject button. Essentially do whatever you can to get the disc to jar loose, >but whatever you do, don't for any reason stick anything in the slot or try to open the case <Doing this will void the warranty for sure! If none of these work your last resort would be to return it for a new one (providing you still have your receipt and it's less than a year old) or take it to a costly repair guy.
