My PS3 disc is stuck, how can I get it ejected?

May W.
Playstation 3 - PS3

I got the dreaded YLLOD with a disc still inside. Yes, I have seen the help here about the fan cycle. It doesn't work for me—it just goes to yellow. Is there any other way apart from dismantling my PS3?

If you havent figured it out yet, this is what you do. Turn the main power switch off in the back. Next, hold down the eject button and turn the switch back on. The fan will run high and it will eject your disc. May have to do it a couple of times. Worked on the second try for me.
You should press both buttons at the same time, you will hear some beeps and hopefully it will spit out the disc.
If holding the eject button and pressing and HOLDING the power button till the power light is green does not eject the disc, It may be the drive is DUFF or just jammed for some reason.
