Disc Stuck In Ps3

19 Replies 2,795 Views Created 20-01-2010
Ok, Ps3 just got the dreaded YLOD :( My MW2 is stuck inside the console, Is there anyway I can get it out? My Ps3 is 2 years old and Is a 60gb. Thank god I backed up my saves yesterday. However, I've lost all of My AC2 and KZ2 saves!

make sure to get a 250Gb slim then bud.... and for your disc the fastest way would be a hair dryer trick and you got your disc back in ETA 20-30min.. the slim has a feature so you can always get the disc no matter what..

 

 

 

Make sure you have a small Phillips-head screwdriver with a shank (the end of the screwdriver) at least 1 inch long.

Screwdriver image

  1. Turn off the PlayStation 3 and unplug the AC power cord from the wall.
  2. Turn the system over and open the screw cover.

    Screw cover diagram
  3. Completely remove the screw cover from the system by carefully pulling the cover straight up away from the system.

    Remove screw cover
    Remove screw cover 2
  4. Insert a small Phillips-head screwdriver into the hole that the screw cover was inserted.  Not the hole that has the blue screw.  You may need to push through a paper dust cover located just below the surface of the case.  This will not void your warranty.

    Insert screwdriver
  5. Once fully inserted, rotate the screwdriver counterclockwise to eject the disc. 

    Turn screwdriver
  6. The disc will eject from the disc slot on the front of the system.  Rotate the eject mechanism until the disc is fully ejected.  It may take several turns before the disc appears from the disc slot.

Sorry Tex my Ps3 isn't a Slim. Thanks Anyway. Is there anyway to get my PS3 Back on temporarily just so I can Deactivate my Account? Preferably without removing the hard drive.

the best thing to try, and I do not endorse this, is the hair dryer trick.

 

This might fix it long enough to get your disc out and delete your account details.

i had the yellow light and the disc wouldn't come out holding the eject button and turning it on. had a console repairer do a diagnostics and they said the hard drive failed, so thats why the disc wouldn't come out.

no dont take it apart the ps3 has a bk up,

this is what i done,

 

turn the ps3 off by the switch at the bk  of the ps3 so the red light is off, then hold the eject button and flick the switch  at the bk on the ps3 while keeping hold of the eject button.

this will force the ps3 on long enough for the disk to come out.

the fan will be very be on and be very noisy

this worked for me when my ps3 got the ylod.

What do you mean by "Clicks really fast"? Do you mean the disk tray or the Beeps?

The same thing happened me. I took the PS3 apart and done the heat gun thing and got the disc out that way. The PS3 died shortly after so I bought a slim.
