    It also only ejects the disc when I try to play it. Like if I put in Skyrim and play a downloaded game such as RE4 it will stay in, but as soon as I try to play Skyrim it ejects

Your Bluray Drive is dead. Bring it in to a repair shop or buy a new one.

SOURCE: Clicking noise

The only way to fix it is to open up the disc drive and reset the the mechanism that sets the disc with the laser. As the system draws the disc in, it also raises the laser unit that is hooked to a gear driven mechinism. Sometimes when dropped, kicked, smacked...etc, the gears can come off of alignment. It's a pain to repair but really not that hard. You really need some patience and a to be carefull not to damage anything. Hope this helps.

When I insert a disk into my wii console, it will accept the disk, make a clicking sound and then eject the disk. This happens with every wii game i've tried. Any suggestions?


my friend,Christina, had the same problem, but didn't handle it right. SHE threw it on the ground. Don't do that. Just take it into GameStop. Then you can either get it fixed, or you can trade it in for a new Wii.

I think the best solution of this problem is to play online games. I have been playing online games such as car games and bike games from last so many years without any problem.

How fix error 8001002B


This error code means disk unreadable, clean up the disk, try also to avoid scratching the disk and to touch the disk with your fingers.

Hold the eject button for a few seconds till you hear a loud sound, this
does clean the blu-ray drive.
Hope this helps. LJ

Disk drive is making a loud noise, and is no longer reading the disc. just makes a loud clicking noise when injecting or ejecting the disc.


PS3 blu-ray drives are pretty problematic. The best solution is to send your ps3 back (without opening it and trying to fix it yourself (voids the warranty)) to sony. Your drive sounds broken, happened to me once before, sent it back, and now its like brand new (took a bit for them to get it back to me though)

switch off ps3, right now before turning on the ps3 keep your hand pressed firmly down on the eject button and the on/off button simultainisly and then power up, it will make a loud fan noise but the game/dvd will pop out.

My game wont eject


Okay, the same thing happened to me and I managed to get the disc out. First is the blue light on. If it isnt then you should hold the eject button and use another cd and push it into the disc drive and gently push your stuck disc around. When you hold the eject button your PS3 will make a loud clicking sound but dont worry. Just keep using the extra disc and push the stuck disc around and it should come out

My disks will not eject


Hold the eject button down for around 10 seconds until you hear a loud clicking noise or when the blue light starts flashing. If that doesn't work you have to call Sony for service at 1-800-345-7669
