|I had this same problem tonight. After reading the other posts on here and on other websites I decided to bite the bullet and take my PS3 apart. Removed the covers & dvd drive, removed the cover off the dvd drive ..... and found one of my kids stickers inside! Removed the sticker, reassembled everything, and it now works fine.|
If you have this problem, it's certainly worth taking your PS3 apart if you are confident enough to do it. Could save yourself a lot of money and embarrassment.
|After reading this I just gave it a little love tap on the top. All better!|

delvecchio give me a cal 4578213
|im having the same problem, howo did u deal with this cause the explanations wasnt very clear to me lol please help|
|ok now my technical expertise registers between that of a no good tech and a slightly good idea. but here's my very own solution i did for this problem. (note: my PS3 is out of warantee and i am currently overseas so sending it to the states was not my best option. if you follow these steps, please note you are taking the chance to fix this on your own terms. I'm only here to give a good idea.)|
My very own PS3 had the same problem, the disc would not slide into the PS3, and it also made a weird clicking noise. after giving the disc a little push, it would also have the problem of ejecting.
the ejection portion can be fixed by holding the eject button for 5-10 seconds before the system forces the disc out. (there will be no damage to the disc.)
so after a long decision process, i proceeded to open my PS3 and figure this out for myself. Opening the system requires two steps.
1. The "outer shell" as we'll call it, is the plastic case that has the PS3 logo on it. That can slide off, with the correct manuever. Unfortunately i cant tell you the manuever seeing how i sorta forced mine off and had to glue it back on. lol. so i hope you can do better.
step 2. there are approximately 8-10 screws that need to be removed for the "inner shell". They all have arrows pointing towards them so it shouldnt be a problem.
after finishing, you'll be able to see the guts and glory of the PS3. Woohoo.
so the next step is to dig into the cd drive. Its the gray tin square and shouldnt be hard to find. (i would like to mention this is where some details get a little fuzzy for me. Im sorry i cant provide a precise detailed explanation, but i really hope this can help you or anyone else for that matter.)
before you remove the disk drive, be sure to tag and unplug all cables connected to it. There are a few banded wires and they are attached to a clip mount. So be sure to be careful removing those.
once you have removed the wires, its time to open up the disk drive. There are 4 miniature screws on the bottom. And precision screw driver is the best bet for this.
after your done that, you see the actual slide rail it is held on the sides by two plastic clips. I warn you now, do not mess with the slide rail dials or anything on it. It's fragile and can fall apart easily if dealt with the wrong way. (another problem i came across.)
after removing the slide rail, you'll see the actual laser setup and gadgets. Here's where i found my solution. (bare with me, the explanation may get confusing. I'll try my best.)
Underneath the laser there is a wireband that runs from the laser to something underneath. My problem i found was that the wire band had been blocking a trigger directly in front of the laser's slide path. my solution was to lower the wireband to the "floor" of the case and tape it down with electrical tape. (any tape is fine.)
the way i found that this worked was to plug in every wire, electrical cord, etc. while leaving the top off the disk drive, and pushed the trigger. i noticed the drive actually took in the disk and performed its normal "duties" as well as ejected the disk.
put everything back together and if this is the actual problem, then you should be well on your way to playing or doing whatever.
I hope this walkthrough helps. As its what helped myself.
again i state please only do this of your own action and only if you think you can efficiently do it. And i recommend only doing so if there no warantee.
