Ps3 slim won't read discs

Ps3 slim won't read discs

Hi, my PlayStation 3 slim 120gb will not read discs I put into it. I was watching a blu-ray film, the movie froze towards the end, I turned off the ps3 and off at the wall, and left it a few hours. When I turned it back on, I ejected the blu-ray movie, tried putting a game in and it did not read. When a disc is entered, the console makes 4 ticking noises instantly after the disc being inserted, then makes an ejecting noise but not ejecting the disc (almost as if it is stuck) and then it ticks another 4 times, and there is no disc spinning noise neither the game coming up on the screen. Very very rarely, I will enter a DVD, and it will fluke and read the disc and work fine, but I recall the DVD's that have been read happen to be at least 1/2 millimeters thicker in height than a ps3 disc. Maybe this could mean that the reader is not blown but there is something jammed stopping the discs from being read?

Replace the DVD drive. It should work then. Or check the ribbons on the DVD drive that connect to the mother board.

It happens to me too on my PS3 slim 120 GB of ram. My model is CHECH-2501A . It runs like a normal PS3 you can buy games on ps store and run the games,watch YT,NETFLIX,ETC. but this problem won’t let me run DVD,CD and Game Disc. I can’t find a soulution online but for now, you can buy games/movies on PlayStation Store.
