You should basically just take apart your ps3 WARNING! THIS WILL VOID YOUR WARRANTY!!!!! that will get your disk back. to fix your ps3 is practically impossible. you probably need a whole new system. what likely happened is that your power supply went. and when it did, it took everything with it.

Disk won't eject


Ok, please try the following. Turn your PS3 off at the back so no lights on at all. While holding the eject button turn your PS3 on. It should now force eject the disc. Dont worry if your fan starts spinning super fast, this is normal when you do this.

You will need to turn your PS3 off at the back again as usually the front button becomes unresponsive after this method.

Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa

My PS3 works fine, but the problem is that my PS3 won't load disks it only ejects. The only way I can load my disk is by turning it off and then turning it back on and then it starts loading my itself then...


The drive is out of alignment. Sometimes this can be fixed by pressing and holding the eject button for about 30-60 seconds. You will see the blue light start blinking and hear the drive gears moving. If this does not resolve the issue the blu-ray drive will need to be disassembled and the gears will need to be realigned. This is a very difficult procedure, even more so then replacing the blu-ray laser lens.

I have playstation 3 model # CECHH01, a game is inside, when i power on the light goes green, then quickly goes blue then yellow and goes back to red and powers off leaving the red light blinking. What do...


well sounds like your PS3 needs to be reflowed or reballed. I would highly recomend you have a professional do the repair. as fas as having a game stuck inside the machine you can get it out in under 10 seconds by doing this.<br /> <br /> 1) turn off power switch in back of ps3<br /> 2) place finger on eject button and hold there while ps3 is off ( no red light) <br /> 3) while holding finger on the eject button turn power switch on the back of ps3 on , hold finger on eject button untill the disk ejects.<br /> 4) turn power switch off and have unit repaired or replaced. <br /> <br /> if unit is covered by warranty and you send it to sony you must get your disk out of the system as you will NOT get it back if you send it to sony. Most reputable repair shops will return your disk with the system or give it to you before they take the system in for repairs. I ALWAYS give the game disks back before a customer leaves my shop as it leaves me with less to keep track of.

My PS3 wont turn on it just flashes a yellow light then red light that beeps cant get disc out


I found a way to eject the disk:
  1. Power off the PS3 on the main switch on the back of the console
  2. Press and hold the Eject button
  3. Turn on the main power switch
  4. The PS3 LED will go green and the fan will spin at max speed
  5. Wait a few seconds and press the eject button a couple of times, the disk should now eject
  6. watch the PS3 die after 30s or so…
This procedure did not fix my PS3 but at least I got my disk back before sending it to Sony for repair.

Red light blinking


I don't know how to turn the system back on yet, but i can get your disk out. Turn the PS3 off by the switch on the back, hold down the eject button whilst the PS3 is still off, then (whilst still holding the eject button) turn the PS3 back on by the switch on the back. You should hear the fan start up and the disk pop out.

Not accepting a disk, acts like there is another disk in there


Hold the "Eject" button for ten seconds and try it. Oh and if you have a 40 gb model (2 USB ports) and the Eject button dosent work then try this, Turn off the back of the PS3 (Main power switch) and then hold the eject button (while the main power is off) keep your finger pressed on the eject button flick on the main power switch and it should sound like some HUGE fan don't get scared, wait until the fan stops turn off your ps3, start it up and insert the disk and IT SHOULD WORK

CD stuck in ps3 horrible noise cant get out HELP!!!


I had the same symptoms. The reason to my problem was that my 2 year old has pushed *three* disks into the console. I got them out through the following, admittedly pretty weird, approach: I hit the eject button, while gently prodding with another disk into the slot (at a slight upward angle). I could feel the disks inside the console rotating or vibrating as I was *gently* touching them with the fourth disk and hitting eject repeatedly. Somehow, the gentle prodding made one of the disk come out a bit, so I could pull it out easily. (I was pretty surprised when a second disk came out, and then a third.)
