    My son told me there was a disc stuck in the PS4 so I followed this:

    https://www.playstation.com/en-au/g...y-eject-a-stuck-disc-from-your-playstation-4/

    My PS4 was like the first two where it had a plastic thing. I tried using a screwdriver on the hole and found out that there was actually no disc in the console.

    The problem is that now when I insert or eject a disc the PS4 makes this horrible noise. Any ideas on how I can make this noise go away? The manual eject hole says to push through the plastic layer but even so it never felt as if I was making solid connection with a screw but it must have done something.

    Anyone else use this plastic manual eject hole?

    Im pretty sure you messed up your disc drive ;/, does your disc drive still reads the games?

    Yeah it still reads the games, it just makes noises taking them in and out. What do you think I did to it? I was just following Sony's directions.

    I did previously have an issue twice where it didn't see a game even though the disc was in. I think this was related to log ins and sleep mode and changing users though.

    Its a grinding noise. I was initially worried the discs were getting scratched. I can try and make a recording later I guess.

    Check one of the discs after using it, you could have just knocked stuff out of place a tad.

    Does it only sound when it's ejecting or inserting? Or does it always sound as soon as you use it?
    I would check so not one of the gears for the eject and enter mechanism is grinding against a wall.

    I thought someone had a tutorial to manually eject disc out of the systems. Personally i hate systems that don't have disc drive lids like the firs playstation, or ps2 slim or ps3 super slim (CODE NAME GRILL) I wish the ps4 had the same thing but no, everyone like the dumb suction disc drives. I hate it. :nayps3:

    What if i need to remove the disc but don't have the system or or connected? I shouldn't have to worry about that, especially if my system stop working, have to ask someone with tools to try and get it out like a rescue mission. :wtf:

    But if i remember correctly, ps4 has a manual eject disc function somewhere behind the system, so i suppose is forgiveable. Just not by much.

    Op used that button which has caused the strange noise to occur.
