PS4 Eject Stuck Disk GuideRequirements:

  • PlayStation 4 with a stuck disc inside
  • A well-lit room with a table to work on
  • A slender Phillips-head screwdriver (jeweler’s screwdrivers work best)
  • A small flashlight (optional)

Step 1: Remove the glossy section of the cover

  • Turn off the PS4.
  • Unplug the power, HDMI, and any other cables from the back of your PS4 system.
  • On a clean, flat, surface place the PS4 in front of you so the front of the system is on the left. (The PS logo on the top of the PS4 should be right side up.)

Step 2: Locate the manual eject screw & remove the disc

  • With the glossy panel removed, you will see two sets of vents lining the outer left edge. Follow the slot from the front locate the first “single” slot (it’s the slot not grouped with any other slots) in the vent.

  • Slide the small screw driver into the vent slot and turn the screw counter-clockwise until the disc can be seen peeking out of the disc slot. This may take 3-6 rotations of the screw. Very little effort is required to turn the screw.

Step 3: Put everything back together

  • Replace the glossy panel. Place it over the exposed section of the PS4, about 1/4 of inch away from the seam. Then, slide the panel towards seam until it clicks into place.
