ps3 wont' pull discs in, so what is the process to opening up the system and putting a disc in the console manually. I just need the spinner to catch the middle of the disc so it spins and reads the disc.
Slot-loading optical drives have no process for putting the disk in the drive manually. If the disk transport doesn't work, then the drive is broken and needs to be replaced. You would have to disassemble the optical drive to put a disk in without using the transport mechanism.
