whatever you do, dont turn on your ps3.
if your ps3 is in warranty, try to call Sony and tell them about the problem. If they wont accept it, go here.
Its a step by step tutorial on how to open the ps3.
Once open, remove all of the coins.

Good luck with your ps3. hate to see such a piece of machinery get destroyed.

Hello my youngest daughter put some coins in my ps3and I didnt notice it,so I went and put in a game, it wouldnt read it so I took the game out and picked up my consoul and realized there was something in...

Hi you probably still have some coins in there wedged. Easiest fix I've seen. I buy store returns and refurbish them. If your good with a philips screwdriver just take the console apart and get the coins out. Worst that couldve happened is the coins grounded out on the dvd drive board then the ps3 is useless bet sounds like theres still something in there.

Remove the plug of the PS3 and remove the coverr to get the coin out or else it can do a lot of damage to the set.
So before it is used or powered on get to wriggle it out, might be lodged into some circuit parts,

How do I get the batter cover off a Leapster?!?!?!?!?

OK, after nearly breaking my daughter's leapster I have figured it out.

Use the coin and twist the little screw up. Then with the screw part closest to your chest, SLIDE the cover off AWAY from your chest. The batteries are located on the undercarriage of the cover. It takes "4" AA's

Hope this helps everyone!!!
