That depends on what was put in and how deep it may have gone. To get the basic cover off isn't very hard, but the deeper into the system you go the more risk you have of not putting things back correctly when your finished. There are literally hundreds of videos on Youtube that will give you a good visual for how to take the cover off, check them out before you start to mess with the console.

Something is blocking me from putting my game into my ps3 help


similar to when a penny got trapped in my ps2. you have three options. move the ps3 around and try to move the object in the ps3. Or send it off to sony and get it repaired for a fee(I dont't think objects trapped in the ps3 is part of the warranty). Or open the ps3 up and remove the object (Warning! opening up the ps3 will void any warranty you have on it.)

Hello my youngest daughter put some coins in my ps3and I didnt notice it,so I went and put in a game, it wouldnt read it so I took the game out and picked up my consoul and realized there was something in...


Hi you probably still have some coins in there wedged. Easiest fix I've seen. I buy store returns and refurbish them. If your good with a philips screwdriver just take the console apart and get the coins out. Worst that couldve happened is the coins grounded out on the dvd drive board then the ps3 is useless bet sounds like theres still something in there.

PS3 overheated - won't read dvd


It's a simple problem, your ps3 has overheated, so you need to get a fan, or get the once inside the ps3 fixed, if that doesn't help just send it to a repair station, either once is simple and doesn't cost mega money.

I just recently installed a new blu-ray drive into my PS3 I switched the contoller board and everything, but now the drive wont take my discs... i mean I can push it in but the drive wont grab it and pull...


ok sounds like you did every thing correctly and switching the board was in the right directio however the controller chip on your daughter board very well could be damaged since these boards rest directly overtop of the gpu and cpu the heat goes smack dab into the metal caing wich in some cases the case toushes the bottom of the daughter board resulting in a over heated controller chip
possible repair is
replacing that chip
with a infectus chip
i am still working on this problem
ive had 2 good repairs matching problem..hope this was helpful

My fan


Well if the fan isn't running then it's shutting off because of overheating obviously. You will need to put a new fan into your PS3. Taking apart a PS3 is very difficult so if you're going to do it yourself you'll need to find a tutorial on the internet. I believe the PS3 uses standard computer fans so you'll just need to buy one of the same size from a site like newegg.com. Once you put that in it should work, if it doesn't then there is something much more severe happening like a motherboard failure and if that is a case you will not be able to repair it.
Please rate, thanks!

Daughter inlaw drove car to work. Said she heard a bang and made noise. I started car and no noise until I put it in gear. Sounds like the transmission is being put into park while moving. To me it...


Hello;
From your description it sounds as though something broke internally in the transaxle. I believe all Buicks were automatics. Not really any thing to do but drop the trans oil pan and see if there is a lot of metal in the pan. If so a replacement trans axle and converter would need to be installed. Hope this helps. Rate me highly and if you have additional questions please let me know.
Thanks;

Something stuck in disc drive of ps3


There is no need to open up the console! Make sure the power is off! Get someone to hold the PS32_bing.gif upside down (so the disc slot is facing down) then get 2 butter knives insert them carefully one on the left and one on the right of the disc slot. Now gently push the knives away from eachother so that the one on left goes left and the one on the right goes right. You will feel them push the brackets that hold the disc in. As you push the brackets you will release the mechanism that holds the disc in and it should just drop out. I did this with mine when my little boy decided to put a credit like card in it!
