i am having problem with my ps3 disc drive
can anyone help me with this or did i put this post in the wrong part of the forum ????
Are you talking about the gold axle bit above the number 22 ?
I opened up one that was similar, making grinding noises and not accepting discs. Seemed stuck with only one side of the mechanism lifted, and the other side dropped down as it does when the disc is correctly loaded. Although this I managed to reset by correctly positioning the metal V shaped piece at the bottom ( it has a spring on each side, the right hand side seemed "jammed" so I just correctly adjusted the left side that moved freely). Then I reassembled the drive (put on the top section while making sure the left side was still moving freely with the white spring mounted clips on the top section of the drive). Put it together and powered PS3. Held down eject once powered to reset the mechanism and it then functioned normally. Hope this helps.
