DVD stuck in PS3

6 Replies 1316 Views Created 17-04-2011

Hi All,

 

I guess this has been posted many times before. I tried to search for similar topics in the forums but could not find any. Anyways, apologies if this is a repeat post.

 

Some days back my kid nephew kinda accidentally stuffed more than 2 DVD's inside my PS3. I tried to eject them but I get a kind of cracking sound whenever I try and they don't come out. :Confused:

 

So is there anyway I can get them out possibly without having to open the system? I tried the method mentioned on Youtube i.e. switching offf the PS3 then pressing the Eject button and then turning on the system again, but no luck.

Re: DVD stuck in PS3

if its a slim ps3 then there is a manuial eject screw, that may work
linky

if its a fat ps3 then think you'll need to open it up

Re: DVD stuck in PS3

Did you try pressing and holding for about 10 seconds?

if that does not work, I believe it is covered by the manufactures warranty .

i doubt more than one disc put in at a time will be covered by sony as its not how the device is ment to be used

Re: DVD stuck in PS3

Thanks for all your suggestions. I had to open the console as the 10 second gig did not work. I was ably suppported by Youtube (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JH-V8EgaEr8) in my effort.

 

So Now, I've got out all the stuck discs(there were 4) and screwed the top back on. But now a new problem:

 

I'm not able to insert any disc :Argh: When I try to insert one, there's something blocking the disc and it does'nt get inserted completely. I don't want to force this disk inside. It might get stuck again and then we're back to square one.

 

I don't wanna re-open it cos I'm pretty sure I screwed everything back on straight, just the way it was. The console display and other stuff are normal as usual. I guess it's the repair shop for me now.:smileysad:

It's classed as accidental  damage so it's not covered by them.

 

4 discs? no way :smileyindifferent:
