When it makes clicking sounds, there are several possible problems;
1. The gears that operate the disk drive are stripped or broken. (offset)
2. There is something interfering the with the opening of the disk drive internally.

Solutions. (Since it is recintly purchased)
1. Return it to the store for an exchange.
2. Send it to Sony for repair. (If you complain to the manager, they will give you a free game or other hardware.)

My ps3 games get stuck coming but game still plays


Have you tried using the force eject technique?? Hold the eject button down for 10 seconds and you should hear it beep a few times.
If you have tried this and it still doesn't work, then is there any noise when the button is pressed?? If there isn't then I'd say that the disk drive motor is broken and a new one might be needed.

I was gaming on my PS3 and the whole system went down. Now


Hi.

Right, you need to hold down the power button untill this happens:

BEEP!

BEEP! BEEP!

BEEP! BEEP! BEEP!

The recovery screen should appear. Choose the desired option.

Mid game my console beeped and shutoff. Now it wont eject disk or turn on at all. Light goes Green, Yellow then flashes Red


your PS3 overheated, what you need to do is remove the power cable and hold the power button for 5 seconds to make sure that there is no power left, then plug it back in and press the eject button hold it down, it will power up and eject disk, if that fails, you need to RMA your ps3 to sony or you can try and return it to vendor with the game case or dvd case of the disk that is stuck they should replace both

My ps3 disk tray wont open


Try this first: Hold down the eject button for 10 - 15 seconds. this is supposed to work as a manual eject for the PS3. If that does not work, Try Reformatting the PS3 hard drive, youll find the option under settings in the PS3 menu

My PS3 wont turn on it just flashes a yellow light then red light that beeps cant get disc out


I found a way to eject the disk:
  1. Power off the PS3 on the main switch on the back of the console
  2. Press and hold the Eject button
  3. Turn on the main power switch
  4. The PS3 LED will go green and the fan will spin at max speed
  5. Wait a few seconds and press the eject button a couple of times, the disk should now eject
  6. watch the PS3 die after 30s or so…
This procedure did not fix my PS3 but at least I got my disk back before sending it to Sony for repair.

Jammed cd drive


  • Touch the eject button on the PLAYSTATION 3 system front for 10 seconds or longer to force the disc to eject. After removing and before reinserting a disc into the PLAYSTATION 3, turn off the system, and then turn on the system again to resume use.
  • If the disc cannot be inserted, you may need to send your system in for service, please click on the link below.
