My PS3 disc is stuck, how can I get it ejected?

History

Well, like most, I got the dreaded YLLOD with a disc still inside.

Yes i have seen the help here about the fan cycle. It doesn't work for me—it just goes to yellow. Is there any other way apart from dismantling my PS3?

If you havent figured it out yet, this is what you do. Turn the main power switch off in the back. Next, hold down the eject button and turn the switch back on. The fan will run high and it will eject your disc. May have to do it a couple of times. Worked on the second try for me.

I too had the same problem with a stuck disc I tried all the techniques to remove the disc but I figured with my playstation having the ylod anyways I figured what more damage could I do by removing the blu ray drive and opening it myself be prepared if u decide to attempt this there are about a dozen or so screws holding everything together

If holding the eject button and pressing and HOLDING the power button till the power light is green does not eject the disc, It may be the drive is DUFF or just jammed for some reason.

THIS GUIDE should be your next option.

Pull the drive out and see if there is anything obvious.

PlayStation 3 Yellow Light of Death (YLOD) Fix Kit may also be worth consideration.

sometimes manual and force eject don't work . I've made my own way of ejecting it . you get 2 discs and force them in to get the 3rd out just make sure bottom one doesnt go in more than top .

its worked every time. don't waste your money.

You should press both buttons at the same time, you will hear some beeps and hopefully it will spit out the disc.

I did what you said guy none of them works, i think i have a problem in my ps3 , so here's what i did i pressed eject button then entered edge of new CD game in case there's something not opening while ejecting Process & it's worked."

hey thanks btw (y)

Best troubleshooting trick ever! My son was devastated when he realised his 2 year old sister had stuck multiple DVDs in, fan trick did nothing. Placing 1 disc in part way in and pressing eject got 2 discs to come out, pressing eject got a 3rd disc out. THANK YOU!!!
