It sounds like the cleaning disc might have damaged the Playstation 3's disc drive eject motor, especially if it was a disc designed to clean a regular DVD or CD player. Since the PS3 is a blu-ray system, the eye for the laser is much closer to the disc, and thus might have damaged the motor by grinding up against the disc. Unfortunately, this sounds like an issue that will have to be repaired by Sony or by a third party repair center.

40g ps3 suddenly stopped mid game, won't eject disc, red light ON, turns green and blue for a moment (when pressed), then yellow light where green is, hums a little bit like the motor wanted to eject but...


I think that u just didn't dust it off enough and the fans could no circulate the hot air well enough and the system ended up damaging its self.

You can go to www.us.playstation.com Click on PlayStation 3<support<Service. The service link can be found in the bottom right hand corner. Just fill out a service report form and then they will ship you a box for you to re-ship your system into for repairs.

Note: If your PS3 is out of warranty you will have to pay $149 for this service with a credit card.

Ps3 fan not running, ps3 not recognizing discs


I suggest calling up Sony and seeing how far you can investigate with their help. If you're warranty is up, opening it up shouldn't matter. However if a sony rep cant solve your problem maybe you can be eligible for a new one or something like that. hope this helped

PS3 isn't coming on.


Most likely the disc has gotten jammed in the drive. Your best solution is to find an official Sony repair center if it is still on warranty. If not, find someone who is willing to take it apart and remove the CD/DVD/Blu-ray disc.

DVDS stuck in overhead DVD player


the motor will not be strong enough to eject. you can try the emergency eject hole with a paper clip . just push straight in and the gears will began to turn so push straight in a couple of times and it should began to eject.

PSP will not turn on


Have you tried ejecting your battery pack? I've had a problem like this. But I don't recall the green light coming on for 15 seconds. Anyway, try ejecting the battery pack and putting it back in. If that doesn't work, then... I tried.

Mine sometimes does this but cleaning the barcode reader at the top of the machine (small glass panel) fixed it. Also make sure the water container is seated correctly. If these dont fix it try pushing the water container left right/back front while there is a disc in the machine-mine has started to only work if I push the fitted water container backwards when "brewing".Its out of warranty now so I will make do until it breaks completely.
