My 60GB finally died, I think, and has a stuck disc inside

#1BruceLee007Posted 4/16/2012 2:18:16 PM
So my PS3 randomly shut off and I got the blinking red light, I keep trying to power it on, but the light always blinks red, and sometimes will turn yellow. Is it dead for good?

I have a stuck Netflix disc inside and i've tried various tricks to get it out, and none have worked. Any suggestions?

Thanks for the help.

PS 60GB 2006-2012 RIP.

So your disc is like pain killers and the PS3 is like Bruce Lee?

Dead for good. If you hold down the eject button for about 10 seconds it should turn on and spit the disc out.

Since you probably don't have a warranty on it anymore, the easiest thing to do would be to just open up the PS3 and Blu-ray drive to get the disc out, provided you have the appropriate tools.
