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.

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.

If those parts dont slide all the way try pushing the long black thing all

My Ps3 doesn't want to take in any discs and it doesnt load on the screen
if i put the disc in there myself. Can u please help me?

Author butterfly153239 ( ago)
I would tell you how to fix that but it's kind of hard to describe if you
don't know what you are looking for. There is a video on here that shows
you how to fix that little problem by Junker15 called PS3 Blu-Ray drive
loader. So just look for his video and he will show you how to fix that

Author butterfly153239 ( ago)
that little round magnetic disc in that holds the discs in place and I
turned the ps3 on again and I could see the blu ray lens light up but
nothing would happen. I tried cd's blu-rays and dvd's nothing would happen.
I bought a new drive that was compatiable with my ps3 and it wouldn't suck
the disc in either so I just laid a cd on top and put that little disc on
top. Turned my ps3 on and the disc would spin and the blu ray lens lit up
but does not read any discs. That's with both drives! Help!

Author butterfly153239 ( ago)
Ok can someone please help me with this. I bought a used ps3 from a friend
for 20 with the problem of not accepting any discs. Well I previously had
another ps3 that had the same problem so I bought another blu-ray drive and
installed it by myself and it worked great. The one I just bought from my
friend wouldn't accept any discs. I opened it up and seen that the blu ray
lens was working because it would light up and move when ever I would turn
it on, and when I would lay a disc on top and put

I've done all steps. but when I insert the disk on the driver, it does not
suck it. I know the problem is not the sensor because it recognizes the
disk and the blue light keeps bliking. Do you think the problem could be
the "engine" that makes the disc driver suck the disk?

what to do whats the problem with it?

Author DrNipples (700 years ago)
I put up a very shitty quality video of my disk drive. It was filmed on a
3DS and I didn't edit it to make it look better can take a look at
it and see if yours looks the same.

Author sherrlon ( ago)
I have the same one you have(80 gig fat) and it looks different than the
ones I see on youtube. It doesn't have any cable attached to the cover
plate and there is no diode either. Plus, on mine the box on the left of
the player is black plastic and not metal. The blueray player stopped
working and I took it apart and cleaned it really well. It still doesn't
work so I think its the laser. Hope you get yours working again.

Author EpicSkittlez ( ago)
does it still work?

Author Rodger Hermes ( ago)
If you wanted to check whether the infrared board was working, you could've
pointed any remote control directly at the black sensor you were talking

Author mitchellpuentemp37 ( ago)
The exact same thing happened to me i bought one off of craigslist and it
didnt worked so now im screwed and it does the same thing but i dont want
to break it trying to fix it so i want to contact someone that really fixes
ps3 so if their is someone tell me i live in mcallen tx.

I googled it, and found only one other picture of the same type of disk
drive that I have. I can take a video, I believe. I normally never upload
anything to youtube. Will give it a go, though. If that doesn't work out
(Am not aware of the condition of my brother's video cam.) would still
pictures do? Help would be appreciated as hell.

Author DrNipples ( ago)
I need serious help here. First of all my disc drive looks completely
different. And lacks the right set of cogs completely. Also there is no
diode to detect incoming disks. I have no fucking idea where that went,
tbh. Wasn't there when I opened it up. So, its either somebody absolutely
ravaged my console while I wasn't looking, or mine just functions very
different, and is a different model. (80 gig fat, is what I have)
