my sisters ps3 didn't go in for gta5

Author VictorAK47 ( ago)
My ps3 fell from a height of about 70cm. Then the disc spinner didn't spin
the disc at all so I replaced the deck. Now the problem is that when it
starts spinning I hear a squeezing noise, like the disk doesn't stand
steady and it tangents on something but everything inside the drive seems
to be ok. Any people with the same problems or solution?

disc in is stuck closed and wont open

Thank you so much for posting this. My ps3 that i got off my brother (for
free) has this same issue. When i turn it on, the disc drive tries pulling
a disc in.

It had a tv drop on it. But it can eject a disc, but it can't take one. I
tricked it into pulling one in, but it wouldn't read it.

But i now know where to start. Thank you.

You were my inspiration to rip open my PS3 after it was not taking in
discs.. Then I see that a wire is loose and when I plug it back in
everything is fine. Thanks!

Author Nicole Chavez ( ago)
Apparently my only problem were my two brothers (4 and 2 years old)... They
snuck in my room probably while I was not home and inserted two disk In my
PS3, hence why it wasn't accepting my disk . I now have one cd that is all
scratched and the other is cracked and split halfway ... They are SO lucky
they are blood . I take my gaming seriously .

If you're watching this video and have no idea what he is talking about
because you're to young or something, then when you turn the ps3 on you can
insert the disc as its doing the noise. It happened to an old ps3 of mine.
It works and will read the game. Unless it's just terribly damaged.

Fuck you I did this and the whole thing fell apart

Author animekitley ( ago)
Pretty well structured video manual. Technical, organisation, personal.
Couldn't have done it better. That's for sure. Wish the other tubers would
do their stuff at least 50% as you did. Thanks sir. It was a pleasure
watching even not owning a playstation. Cheers 

Author Potew ( ago)
Well, all I have to say is THANKS A LOT for this video... I had the same

not sure if I have the same problem well basically my ps3 just stopped
accepting all my games well it will allow them to be inserted just it wont

problem with it reconizing the disk rather something else??

Author Prim Pri ( ago)
Damn, wish mine was as easy to fix as this lol. I bought a cheap PS3 from
Ebay being advertised as having a broken bluray drive.. thought I could fix
it quite easily but it appears the logic board is dead or the lens is dead.
(Insert/Eject works fine, but no laser flash and no motor spin but laser
will position to middle if forced to top at first, disk is read - clock
spins on XMB but nothing more than that). Going to get a new drive + logic
board and attempt to remarry it to the mobo.

I'm having the same issues, but I have the PS3 slim. I don't know if it
makes any difference.... But is there a way I can fix it without paying for
a new disk drive or new ps3? Ps. Money is tight and I need a legit method
of repairing it.......

Author sdorman22 ( ago)
Hey Matt, I had to take my drive apart to retrieve a disk while I was
working on a YLOD repair. Now i'm having the same issue that you had when
you first put yours back together. It will accept a disk, makes the same
noise yours did, and won't read it or give it back. This seems to be a
common problem when people reassemble their drives but i've yet to find a
firm solution. Any ideas on what you may have done to get it working

Author halkese ( ago)
I got it. Under the cover there is a straight sliding gear, i had it set on
the teeth and when i put the cover on after replacing the laser it would
click and not accept discs. Ive done a few drives since and found the best
way to do it. Tear it down with a disc in it. When finished, Replace the
disc and the cover while pulling on the guides so they fit in the groove.
Or if the problem is not accepting discs, pull off the cover, and put a
disc in while connected to the ps3. Then replace cover.

Author indariverr ( ago)
If those parts dont slide all the way try pushing the long black thing all
the way up (Thats what she said :P)
