After having trouble with disk ejecting, that was resolved im now having trouble feeding the disk


Ok the ps3 cd drive top and bottom are synchronize together to work together. You need to take the cd drive apart again hook it up to the ps3 without the top lid of the cd drive on and press eject. The simply put the cd drive lid on directly from the top not to one side but directly down ontop of the bottom part of the cd drive. Then down put any screws in start missing with the disc see if it goes in and out. If you still hear odd noises you can do it this way 3-4 times until you have the top lid aligned with the bottom part. Or another way a little more difficult is get the disc drive to have a disc in it and take the cd drive apart. Then with the top part in your hand slide a disc in the top part and hold the disc through the middle hole with your finger and simple place it back on the bottom part of the drive. Its an easy fix but a little hard to explain if you still need help let me know. Also it could just be your gears needing greasing. You can use a qtip and any thick greasy solution. I've used baby lotion **** paste vasoline all of those at diffrent times when I couldnt find anyhing else and that will fix it.

Hi I have a ps3 slim and it just recently stopped ejecting my disks.when I press the eject button the ps3 makes a clicking sound but nothing comes out.but if I turn it off then back on it makes the noise...


He is full of **** trying to scam you. It sounds like your disc drive is out of alignment with the top part of the disc drive so the clicking your hearing is the bottom of your disc drive trying to eject and the top is holding its on as the top has sliding parts that meet perfectly with the bottom part of the disc drive so it sucks the game in and out. You need to open it yourself with a philips head screwdriver you dont have to worry about the motherboard or any other part just take the drive out undo the ribbons connect the drive to the motherboard then it should pop right out. Been awhile since I took a slim apart they dont break as often (yet). From here you should have a metal caseing over the disc drive maybe not with the slim. You pop the metal caseing off the you have a plastic disc drive. Take the top part off maybe requires small phillips screw driver. Since you have a disc in it when you take the lid off hook the cables back to the ps3 motherboard and to the cd drive. Now press eject with the top lid off. Then put the top lid back on and insert a disc it should work. Then just put it back together. Theres a little motherboard on that cd drive do not short it out on anything. You can do this if you cant worst is youll have to buy a new cd drive from the repair shop you mentioned. Then they should charge to much labor to put it back together as you had it apart when you got there. But you should beable to do it if you need help taking it apart just google or youtube slim ps3 disc drive repair or how to take apart slim ps3. Hope this helps if not let me know.

Ps3 slim 129 gb will mot eject mw2 it makes the beebing noise and the another weird noise that sounds like it is stuck and the doesnt work the games does eject from the main menu but it is still in the ps3


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.

My ps3 stop playing my game disc


The most common reason for the game not reading discs is a bad drive. The following website sells the drives and does installs:

store.richspsxparts.com/wiiredvddr

This drive should fix any reading issues you are having with your games, or issues inserting your games or ejecting them (or lack thereof). This is the entire DVD drive assembly mechanism replacement for your Game including a new laser. If your discs are not ejecting, or you cannot insert a disc -- or you can insert a disc but it will not load, this is what you need to get your game going again!


You can also try the steps below. Its from PlayStation Forum:

1. Turn off Playstation®3.
2. Hold the power button down; the system will turn on and turn off once again.
3. Once the System has been shutdown, re-press you finger until you hear 2 consecutive beeps
4. When you hear the 2 beeps take finger off power button.
5. You will be prompted to plug in your controller via USB and then hit the PS button
6. The Recovery menu will pop up.

The current Recovery Menu supports:
• Restart System: Restarts the PLAYSTATION®3 System.
• Restore Default Settings: Reset all system settings back to default.
• Restore File System: Checks for corrupt/missing system files.
• Rebuild Database: Rebuilds the OS for the PLAYSTATION®3.
• Restore PS3 System: Fresh restore; Deletes everything and starts from Scratch.
• System Update: Update the PLAYSTATION®3 System

If the above steps still does not solve the problem, then I think will have to update your Ps3.

Update your PS3 (in the settings menu the 1st option).

Go on the internet browser on the PS3 then go on the menu press triangle then on one of them there are delete cookies and the delete the others as
well as cookies.

You could also try this as well: put the PS3 on then press the eject button (with no disc in) then hold it and switch the PS3 off at the back with
your finger on the eject button still holding it, then put it back on and the fan test should be working this may cool it down. It might be over heating.

But if your problem is not still solved, then maybe you should call sony for further assistance.
Take care.

How to get a disc out that is stuck


Try this way of getting the disc out:

Turn off your PS3 from back (the main off button) Put your finger on the eject button and once you do, push the switch at the back to switch the PS3 on, and then push the eject button. Hold it like this for fifteen to thirty seconds, or until the drive is forced open.The disc should come out now.

If it doesn't then you'll need to open up your ps3, then open up the disc drive manually. To do it its located here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aHS07EFGZ3g

the drive is on the left, it unplugs then you need a small phillips head screwer to take off the top of the drive and then you can remove the disc. Then put the screws back and then go ahead and plug the drive back in and the put the ps3 back together.

Video games stuck inside and wont come out but was working just fine before this


Hi,, here's the solution. Remember that you must NEVER force the disk out by using hard objects/screw driver/plier or anything to pull the drive out. This will wreck the PS3 and its drive.

• Turn off your PS3 from back (the main off button)

• Put your finger on the eject button and once you do, push the switch at the back to switch the PS3 on, and then push the eject button. Hold it like this for fifteen to thirty seconds, or until the drive is forced open.

• The disc should come out now.

Thanks and take care

Ps3 disc drive not working.


You've done everything I would have done honestly. Take a can of air and blow it into the drive to make sure dirt or dust isn't on the laser which could affect if it sees discs or not.

The better thing to try if you are good at opening up your ps3 and then removing your drive and opening that is to take a damp q-tip with a bit of glass cleaner and clean your laser in the drive gently. Then put the drive back together and hook the cables back up to the ps3. You can leave the cover to the ps3 off for this step. Turn on the ps3 and try different blu-ray, dvd's, music cd's, game discs, etc. If it still doesn't read any of them then either the laser or the drive i bad. If it reads some discs and not others then its a weak laser and the laser would need to be replaced.

If you have to replace the laser or the drive, you can do a search on Ebay and usually find them fairly cheap.

Hope this helps and let me know if I can be of further assistance.
