I can't get my blu ray disc out :(

I've tried this method but it didn't work

http://community.us.playstation.com/t5/PlayStation-3/YLOD-How-To-Eject-Your-Stuck-Disc/td-p/5419354

Any other suggestions?

I used the blowdryer method, YouTube it. It'll give your ps3 10-30 minutes until it ylod again.

Buy a heat gun, security screw driver, a normal screw driver, and some arctic silver 5. And search for tutorials on how to fix ylod on youtube. It's easy, trust me!

I've seen the method and I dunno, worried I'll screw something up (I always do)


Any specific temperature/setting for the hair dryer?

Used the highest setting. This is the cheapest method I know and it will work. Watch the video and it will make a lot of sense. Good luck!

Take pictures of what goes where if that's what your worried about. It's very easy if you find the right tutorial. I can't find a video fo you because it's been a while and I know how to fix it myself.

The plastic vents I believe, This is not a permanent solution, this is just a way to get your disc out. This is really the cheapest solution without opening your ps3

How long does it last after fixing it? This is the 2nd time my PS3 has YLOD on me. I had it fixed by a friend (I paid him) but it only lasted a little over a month :(
