If the system turns on but then turns itself off, beeps at you and flashes it's lights at you then you have over heated the system. The GPU chip has probly pulled itself away from the board. This will require you to diassemble the PS3....

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.

    As soon as i turn on the ps3 it turns right back off within 5 seconds


    Does the lights blink red? If so, You have the infamous YLOD, aka. Yellow Light of Death. This is the number 1 cause of pS3's dying. It is an overheating issue linked to your CPU and GPU (the processor chips) You will need to find a local PS3 repair shop who can repair this. Do not try to attempt repairs seen on the internet yourself as some would suggest.You could make things much worse and render the unit totally unresponsive. The repair process takes about 3 hours.



    IT CAN BE FIXED*





    IS THERE A DISC STUCK INSIDE?



    If you have a unit that is not backwards compatible, any non 60g or 80g then you can retrieve your disc.



    Power off the unit using the toggle switch on the back. Hold down the 'eject' button and turn the toggle switch back from off to on. This will run a fan test and eject your disc. Remember, this will only work on the 20, 40g models. Not the backwards compatible units with the 4 usb port holes and the memory card slots.



    You will have to have the system repaired so that you can eject the disc the normal way. If the technician cannot repair your system, simply ask him to remove your disc.

    Disc will not eject


    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.

    Won't start up....emergency eject????


    Hi there,

    As soon as you turn on your G5, hold down the mouse button. Keep holding it down until the disc ejects. Make sure you hold down the mouse button (right side or middle) as soon as you turn the computer on.
