    PS3 Blu Ray Drive issues??

    I have a Blu ray drive issue and when I insert a disc it spins up and everything but doesn't read any of them. In the xmb there's no spinning clock on the top right. I have used 3 different kes 400a lasers and none of them changed anything. I have also used different daughter boards and nothing worked. Even file system restore didn't. I don't understand why? What's the problem?

    Sounds like the laser is all done. Time to get a PS3 slim.

    Um I've tried 3 different ones. Is each laser dead?

    I'm not really too technical but it looks like a new PS3 would be the best option. By the time you replace the laser and put in the hours to fiddle around with it I don't think it will be worth it.

    That is part 1. There are multiple parts to that video, good luck with that, it seems pretty damn tough.

    I've fully stripped down a iphone 4 to replace the rear case and front LCD, I had to remove every single damn component and re-build it again. This though, seems even tougher!
