Default How do I prevent getting shocked when removing a bluray disc from my PS3?

I have a top loading PS3 & every time I go to remove a bluray from it I get shocked. I make sure I have the PS3 turned off when I remove the disc but it still gives me a big static shock which probably isn't good for the player either.

I used to live in an apartment with a lot of static and I was shocked every time I touched the PS3, the metal sliding glass door, etc. When I touched the PS3 and it shocked me, the video signal would shut off for a few seconds. Surprised I never fried the hard drive or motherboard or power supply or something. I got a humidifier to reduce the static in the place but it didn't work, so I started a habit of walking over to the kitchen and touching the refrigerator door to intentionally shock myself to get rid of the static before touching the PS3. Annoying and tedious, but the only thing that worked. And it hurts less when you do it on purpose.

Off topic but when ever I get out of my wife's car the damn thing shocks me when I close the door. But it never shocks her or anyone else.
Try using a key or something metal to transfer the shock, like touching a key to a door knob.

i have been getting a lot of static shocks at work and home too. i usually touch something before i touch my desired object, just to get the static out, one post suggested this. also, the air is too dry, thus causing static, also pointed out so a humidifier will help.

I think dust is the problem here.

Remove that and you should see a difference.

2. Ground yourself. Dissipate the static electricity by touching something that is connected the ground such as a power supply that is plugged in but turned off.

3. Use an anti-static wrist strap. You don't have to wear it on your wrist, you can also keep it on your ankle. Make sure the alligator clip is connected to something that will dissipate the electricity (ex: power supply unit that is plugged in and turned off or a dry, metal water pipe).
You can also discharge yourself, before touching your precious electronics, by first touching something that is made from metal. Make sure it's not plugged.
