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.

Author Anthony Tapia (10 months)
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.

mine it stopped accepting discs at all after a lens change, the arm gears
and the little buttons are all ok do you have any idea what's happening"?
It may be the diode?

Author himynameismichael182 (2 years)
First off, I would like to just say thank you. I had the exact same
problem, and this video encouraged me to open my ps3 and fix it up, it
totally saved me $99.00 and it was very easy :)

Author EpicSkittlez (2 years)
does it still work?

Author LOOKITZ DUNKS (3 years)
uh, i live in a different city to price won't be similar..but the person
who fixes ps3 where i brought it to charges $35 + any replacement pieces
needed...he said it could easily cost over 60$ when he tested it...but
after he fixed it, he only charged me $35

Author BlackSalamander441 (1 year)
could you tell me how to go about cleaning my lenses as i have no idea

Author sherrlon (2 years)
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 LOOKITZ DUNKS (3 years)
yeah, i paid to get it should be just a movement of gears or
something like what the problem this ps3 had..i didn't have to pay for
parts so that probably means nothing broke :D

Author Kyle Brandenberger (2 years)
man, i have been playing with my disk drive for so long i am about to buy a
new one, other than that great video

Author DrNipples (2 years)
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)

Author OwndBy Julian (2 years)
Did you figure it out yet i have the same problem!

Author Cesar Augusto Tse (2 years)
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?

Author lennartjuhh (3 years)
