    well hello people

    I stumbled accross this place in hopes to get some help.
    I had my nephew over and he asked if he could play ps3 which i said ok.
    Next thing i know my Drive is Jammed with 2 Game disks in it dont know how he managed this. So instead of sending it for warrenty i decided hey lets just take it apart and unjam the games. Well once i took the top of the drive off i found 2 springs inside loose no idea where they came from. Now i cant auto load my games and have no idea where these springs
    go.

    Now is there any pictures of step by step disasemble of the drive? So i may see where my springs go?

    Or Is there a way to just run the ps3 without the top and drive top maybe make a flip lid or somthing?

    Anyways hope someone here can help or lead me to the right direction.
    thanks

    you should have sent it back since you have
    a warrenty u might do unfixable damage
    so if i where u i would put it back together and pack it up and send it back and get a new one

    Id say make it look like you didnt open up the console and see if walmart will swap you for a new one. Times like now make you wounder why game consoles dont have multi-disk changers =\
