ps3 bluray-drive replacement?
ps3 bluray-drive replacement? –
hopping some one can help me with this problem i have.
I have a ps3 bluray drive from a 40gb pal version that works, i want to replace this one in my ps3 60gb version. I can see that its 2 differnt bluray drives, i have tryed just swapping them, but no luck! Can i swap the circuit boards between them? or can i swap the lasers? or am i trying the imposible hehe
One more quistion, how can i see if it is the cirket board or the laser that has gone bad?
Please check first if the laser eye is the same, if yes and the boards have the same connections you must swap the boards otherwise they wont work, because they are encrypted to work only in that model.
But please open the drive and check both lasers, to seek if they are the same, if not donīt proceed with the swap.
The 40gb is a 2 eyed laser and the 60gb 1 eyed laser head. hmm not good. there is no software solution for this. so i can get the drive from my 40gb ps3 to work in the othere ps3???
This is not ps2 yet! I donīt know any program to change that for ps3.
So no way
check ebay for a new laser one. itīs easy to repair the laser.
Yes i know its easy to repair the laser, but allso have to find out if it is the laser that the problem or the cirket board? and if there was a way to make the other drive work, i could save some cash ;-)

If the cirket board i burned, can it even eject or inset disks?
My experience on this matter tells me the laser is wasted.
The drive is not spinning, or if it spins is just a little a little then stops, but usualy when you insert the disc it does no move at all.
I bet 100 on that laser!
If you buy on ebay please make sure they give you warranty for that product otherwise dont buy from them and choose another seller.
Which one is bad? 2 eye lens or 1 eye?
yes ok! its the one eyed laser thats the problem from my 60gb vision ps3.
I buying a laser on ebay to night, hopping this will fix the problem.
