How to Get a Disc out of the PS3 Without Turning It On


Occasionally, CDs, DVDs, Blu-Ray Discs and game discs can get stuck inside of a Playstation 3 game console. Traditionally, the disk is ejected from a PS3 by pressing the "Eject" button on the outside of the PS3 while the power is on. However, if this method doesn't work, you can unplug the PS3 from a power source and eject the disc manually.

Things You'll Need

  • Phillips-head screwdriver with a one-inch shank
  • Turn off the PS3 with the power button on the back, then unplug the AC power cord.

  • Unscrew the screw cover on the underside of the PS3, then lift it off. You will see a hole underneath.

  • Insert the screwdriver through hole, breaking the paper dust cover just under the surface.

  • Rotate the screwdriver counterclockwise until the disk ejects. Keep rotating until the disc is fully out.

Tips & Warnings

  • Ejecting the disc in the manner will not void your PS3 warranty.
