Why won't my PS3 Slim eject discs?
My PS3 does not eject discs. When you put in a disc, it accepts them, but very slowly. Then, it won't eject them. Also, and this could be key information, the manual eject feature (where you pull off that tab on the bottom of the console where the blue screw is, then insert a screwdriver in the hole and turn counterclockwise to slowly eject the disc) will not work either. I took apart the Blu Ray drive and everything and there is a part that appears to be a bit wonky. I don't know what it is called but it is described at 3:05 in this video:
The part is off center and down, and even when I put in a disc it will not move up like it should. I couldn't find anything wrong with it other than that it appeared to be in the wrong position. Otherwise, I have tried resetting the mechanism and everything that he does in the video but it does not work. The Blu Ray reads games that are in, but just can't eject them. I have scoured the internet for a fix to this and can't find one, and don't want to pay for something that seems like an easy fix.
