Stopped taking disks into itself. How can I repair?

I received a PS3 that was not reading disks and followed the instructions that I found on youtube.com to dismantle it, but my model seemed a little different, after putting it back together it would not take disks, it won't even pull them in. What might I have missed?

Mine was weird, I was playing it and all of a sudden I froze in a game. I turned the system off and back on and found that I was not able to see the disk in the system anymore. Almost like a modder had shut my system down on me without my knowledge. I have heard of this happening to other people in the past however I have never experienced it myself. I am unable to reload a disk into my system and also I am unable to get on youtube, HULU, or Netflix. Each time I try i get sent to the black screen and then nothing else happens. Have to restart the system again. I am able to talk to friends with messages but other than that its just a black brick taking up space. How do I fix this problem.

If the disc drive isn't even spinning or taking discs, that could be something very simple, or something very serious.

The simple thing it could be would be a disconnected cable. You might want to disassemble your device again and make sure the power and data cables to the optical drive are properly seated and connected.

On to the serious possibility. If you weren't careful with your workspace and tools, you may have shorted out a component in the disc drive. If a circuit on the drive's PCB is shorted, it is very difficult to determine where the short occurred, and repairing it is nearly impossible.

Check the connections for the cables and let us know how that goes.

I just started work on the PS3 again, I had tried the connections they seem fine. The problem is not that it is not spinning, it is not even taking the disks into the drive and this is not the model with motion detection, it has a little white arm that the disk hits to activate. I can't find a version of this 40g model on any site.

As I also stated in my answer, you very well may have shorted out something on one of the boards. Try finding a known working disc drive for the same model and see if it works. If so, then the other drive is likely toast.

you may try here http://www.thefind.com/computers/info-ps... or here http://goconsole.com/playstation/parts-m... and here http://www.wiisingonline.com/BLURAY-DVD-... Do you have any markings or serial no. on that drive?

I will have to look into it. I am more interested in getting the hard drive back at the moment. But that is on another question. I think you may be right about the drive, I am going to take it out and see it what I can do after I get the OS back onto the hard drive.

gatewaynomad let me know if you need a repair manual I might be in a place to help you out.

I have had this happen in the past. If the drive is not lined up perfect when being put back together, it will be misaligned and wont accept disks in. When it didn't accept them in, it would click and cluck trying to take the disk in but since it was out of alignment it never goes in.

One good question is.... did it accept disks before you took it apart. If it did, then it should be a simple fix. If not, then it could be a previous person working on it, or the drive's circuitry is messed up.

One fix is to take the drive apart and try to get everything lined up and happy again. It takes a few times to get it right, but you should be able to look at photos or videos of opened drives to see where everything should be.

Worst case is to replace the drive even though I'm pretty sure it isn't bad.

Good luck, and let us know if you get it working.

+ From what he said it was taking discs before, just not reading them. Making sure everything is lined out sounds good to me, though.

I read a bunch of people suggestions with no success. however, i found the solution for my ps3!

symptoms: 1) when unit first powered up it sounds like it's trying to elect disk. 2) disk can be inserted upon power up, but not any time after that.

problem: the metal shield on the top of the disk drive was very slightly indented where the foam tape seals to the top lid. this was rubbing the internal plastic arms and not allowing them to return to the fully ejected state.

fix: removed the metal shield, slightly bent outward, and reattached

now it works perfectly!

This was the trick that worked for me. I used the backup utility, then entered safe mode, then rebuilt the database. PS3 Slim started taking discs like a tray return at an all-you-can-eat buffet.

Hi guys,i know this thread is old, but i took the top off my 80gig PS3 .Armed with a fine paintbrush and vacuum cleaner i only cleaned the dust out.Now when i want to insert a disc (when usually it recognises that u are putting a disc in and it "takes it from you" and loads),there is no beep or anything,its just dead and wont pull the disc in.If i push the eject button,it makes the beep noises but thats it.I have checked the two small plates at the front which make contact with the metal tabs from the power and eject buttons,i bent it slightly upward to make sure it makes contact,but still nothing.Are there any "cheats" i could try by pushing and holding buttons etc?

If you use the controller to just highlight ps store on the main screen press and hold the eject button until the blue light flashes. Or hold eject while turning off and then hold eject while turning on.

Ive fixed several of them with this same issue. Most of the time, you can remove the upper housing of the PS3 and take out the middle (centered) screw on the disk drive- it takes care of everything. When you do this, youll hear a quiet click as the two arms release themselves. The drive is fully operational without this screw- and will no longer bind up.

There is a small arm on the right in the cd housing, make it is forward toward where you insert the disc. This arm goes back when you put in a disc and it will in gage the disc tp be pull in !

I have the 60GB version and the drive wouldn’t eject. Took the drive out and dig further into it than intended. Got everything re-aligned and tested inserting and ejecting before putting the outer case back on and it was working perfectly. Put the outer case back on and now it does the same as yours, doesn’t even recognize that I’m inserting a disc…

I know this is an old thread, but my issue is the locking mechanism that keeps you from inserting a new disc while one is in, it won’t release (go back down) so i cant put a disc in or take one out, nothing happens when I push the eject button not even the beeping, how do I fix this issue? It’s a ps3 slim and it has also started freezing when i try to load a game thats downloaded on the system, both issues started at the same time,HELP PLEASE

Little late but to get the locking mechanism to drop there is a wide screw cover on the bottom that will have a blue screw and a hole. Insert a philips screwdriver into the hole and turn counter clockwise. That is also the safest bet to removing any disk stuck inside.

We literally unplugged it and plugged it back in because sometimes capacitors get hot and need to cool down and the capacitor is not getting enough power.
