    Hi all,

    Strange one here. I unpluged the power lead from the ps3 and once reconnected upon turning it back on the drive will not take in any discs although the eject beep works and makes a strange sound. I took the top casing for the drive off and heard a click, put the casing back on and plugged it in and it was fine. It seemed to do this only if the power had been pulled. I know I don't need to unplug it and that if I leave it in standby its fine but I'm just curious to why it would do this?

    Thanks to all

    my guess is the drive is going out because most slim model ps3's when fain this issue the eject mech. malfunctions and causes issues with inserting and removing the disk
