There may also be additional ones. Make sure when reassembling to put this stabiliser back in the same place as it is originally found even if it is not found in exactly the same location as this article. Failure to do so could result in disc scratching.

Perhaps this guide can integrate the procedure for removing a stuck disc? Many YLOD units die with a disc in the drive and some repair service providers charge extra to remove it. What's worse, sometimes it is not your disc! I was going to send it to Sony for my repair except that the disc inside is rented and needs to be extracted right away. The repair providers who charge extra implied to me that they charge extra because the drive needs a disc reinserted if it is going to work again when booted up in a working PS3 (something about rails that would fall without a disc holding them up). I believe that they throw in a blank CD/DVD or one of those clear plastic separator discs that come in recordable disc cake-boxes on the top and bottom of the stack.

If you do these steps you will get to the disk and remove it easily

PS2 Dealer -

This tutorial is brilliant and saved my PS3. Thank you.

One comment or question really: Between steps 9 and 10 a heat shield magically appears. In Step 9 when you see the drive being taken off, there's no apparent heat shield.

But in Step 10 we see the heat shield. On my unit, there doesn't appear to be one. So this was - and is - a little confusing. I thought somehow I'd lost the part. (Though in the space I was working, there's just nowhere it could have gone.) Is this a problem to not have this? It's hard to tell from your pics whether the original had a shield or not or if these were two different units.

You are correct, the units in steps 9 and 10 are different. Steps 1-9 are part of an original iFixit tear-down, steps 10-15 are my user-created guide which iFixit staff have merged with their own.

There may be some variation between units, if your original disc drive didn't have a heat shield then I wouldn't worry. It doesn't appear that the unit in steps 1-9 from iFixit had one either. Thanks for the feedback, I'm glad the guide helped you fix your issue.

It is not recommended to replace just the laser unit. It is better to replace the drive chassis (metal part, including the rail and disc spindle motor) as an assembly because the height of the rails are calibrated in factory. Unscrewing the rail screws will change the alignment and you can't calibrate it.
