Looks like the screw method worked. I was able to play MGS V for 3 hours + without problems. From the video I watched, it says that this screw can mysteriously go loose at times. You probably should have tried it again before you sent it in.
Just so you guys know, it isn't the screw. If you want a really permanent fix, you need to bend the metal piece that connects the eject button with the board. Bend it away to stop the connection and disable the eject button.
Sure, you can't use the physical eject button anymore, but you can always use the menu to eject a disc digitally. And the metal can be bent back should you ever want to enable your beepin' - ass button again.
I have been through many of the methods you'll find (including the screw) and none are permanent but the bending of the metal connector.
Can't find the video of it right now, but if you look up how to disassemble the console enough to take the top shell off, you'll see the metal connector on the opposite side of the eject button, on the inside of the shell. Can't miss it.
