HARD RESET

1. Power Off the PS3 via the power switch in back and power back on w/switch. (60gb FAT if no switch in the back unplug it then plug it back in after a few seconds)
2. Hold Power Button on the Front until you hear 3 beeps.
3. Then go through the initial setup and then run a full Format via System > Format. (will take approx 3 1/1 hours). You may need to have our AV cables ready if your using HDMI (in case HDMI isn't detected after initial reset).
4. Restore your backup you made prior to doing factory/hard reset (optional, if you created a backup).

We got a game stuck in the wii consele....We tried ejecting the game as well as turning the game off...nothing is working.


You have to try out all these options first:

Turn the Wii off and on again after about 20 seconds. Press the eject button again.

Unplug the Wii's AC power supply if Step 1 doesn't work. Wait 1 to 2 minutes, and trying to eject the disc again after turning the Wii back on.

Hold down the eject button for 5 to 10 seconds.

Try ejecting the disc with the Wii at different angles. If you hold the Wii upside down, it may help the disc fall out.

Call Nintendo and send the Wii back if non of these steps work. In most cases, a disc stuck in the Wii should be covered by warranty.

Nintendo says to see if power light was coming on, AC adapter reset. unplug from both ends for 90 seconds.Hold eject button for five or 10 seconds.

If none of this works, you might wanna try this, but it is not a preferred method, if you ask me, even though it can be done.

To remove a disc you'll need three sets of tweezers. And possibly a bobby-pin.
First you need to turn the Wii upside down (and preferably unplugged from a power source)
Second, using two sets of tweezers, press the small metal "guards" down. These are located just inside the mouth of the Wii. They're there to keep the disc from free falling, and inhibit their removal. They aren't locked and shouldn't be difficult to press down.
Third, you'll need to reach "up" through the middle of the mouth with the third set of tweezers to grab hold of the disc. I'd highly recommend using flat tweezers, not sharp ones as the disc may become scratched.
NOTE: The disc itself rests on the internal carriage (through the center hole of the disc) and if upside down, should fall into your tweezer's grasp easily. If it doesn't then you need a bobby pin to dislodge. Gently press the bobby pin on top of the disc and then grip the disc with the tweezers.
Finally, gently pull and the disc and push on the bobby pin and the disc will slide out easily .

This can be done with one person, but helps if you have an extra hand.
Good luck.

My game is stuck in my ps3


This is quite a common problem on the PS3. Try the following steps:
Step 1. Turn the PS3 right off with the switch on the back
Step 2. Turn the PS3 on so it is in standby mode (red light on)
Step 3. While holding the disc eject button press the power button on the front of the console.

This should force the disc to eject and all should be ok again.

If this does not work post a reply here and I will assist you some more.

Thank you for using FixYa

In the middle of playing it shuts off and a red light starts to beep and flicker on and off


Unfortunately, you are going to need to have your PS3 serviced by Sony. If your disc is stuck inside, if flip the switch button off on the back of the PS3. Then press and hold the eject button and turn the button at the back on again. This should eject the disc.

PS3 not turning on


The only way you would be able to get your disc is to open up your PS3. I advise you not to if your warranty is intact. If not, unscrew 1 bolt from left side with torx bit. Slide panel to the left. Unscrew 7 more bolts on top along sides and corners. Open from back like a book. Unplug the ribbon of the BD drive by flipping the tab connecting to the motherboard. Unplug the smaller plug from the bottom left of the BD drive. You should be able to figure out how to open the BD drive from there.

Or, another way is, you can just remove your BD drive, and connect it to your friend's PS3 and hit EJECT.
