Fitted new BR drive, Wont take in discs?
Fitted new BR drive, Wont take in discs? –
Looking for some help / advice here.
I bought an early 40gb model requiring a new br drive, loaded to dash 3.50, seemed fine, security sticker on looked untampered.
The drive took a disc in once after many attempts then made screeching noises and would not eject the disc.
Bought a replacement drive (Single laser model), fitted the controller board and connected the br drive but not getting anything, seems dead, wont take disc in etc. tried a working drive out of a 60gb unit and its the same, nothing. Tried different cables etc
Is there any thing i might have missed, Is there anyway to test the controller board?
I have to ask.
What the hell has this got to do with "Technical Development"?
Edit: This section seriously needs to be locked down to either a post count or something to get access to post here.
Soo if your in the hundreds you should be allowed to post non subject matter relating to the post. Stop being a board troll he made a simple mistake your post just proves being a HERO !

The amount of good information in this section that is buried under a mountain of crap posts that do not belong here is mind blowing.
Hell, why not just have one forum, and we all post everything in there.. see how long it takes to find stuff.
As for your theory on "drive reset", seriously, it's an emergency eject mech when the system is stuffed, nothing more.
It proves nothing about the drive being in a working state and does not reset the drive.
Check the flat cable that goes from the PS3's motherboard to the drive's controller board.
I had this same problem once and it turned out the cable I've just mentioned wasn't plugged in correctly at one of it's ends
yes first check all cables and connections make sure they are firmly in place.Also make sure you have the right laser module,since you did not post your ps3 ID can not say for sure but most 40gb and 80gb models run a dual laser.also make sure you kept and are using the original married board that was attached to your original blu-ray unit.
