How hard is it to replace a Blue Ray Drive and what is required –
Hi, my PS3's blue ray drive has stopped working and I have managed to take out the drive an replace it with it still accepting the disks and ejecting them. So I am reasonably confident that I could replace it myself. I would just like to know from people who know, what is required, is it as simple as just replacing the blue ray drive it's self from another machine or is there other things that need to be done aswell.
Thanks in advance for any help
you have to make sure they are both the same model bluray drive and change the logic board off your old drive onto the new drive other than that yes its straight forward just be carefull with the clip underneath alot of people seem to snap them lol
Could you give me link to anywhere that could give me instructions to everything I need to know and how to do it, just so I'm safe an don't screw it up. I really miss being able to play my games. Wish i had never upgraded from CFW 3.55
You can check out ifixit... www-ifixit-com/Device/PlayStation_3 (replace dashes with periods) It has repair guide to replacing your laser if that is the cause.
My problem is the laser is fine.. the drive doesn't spin up. The disc loads okay but shows no disc. Observed it while opened. Not certain if it's the chio on logic board or the motor or something else. System is 2.76 which is old. Don't know if the previous owner had it chipped.
hi there bit confused when you sadi laser fine, the drive doesnt spin up, the disc loads okay.

if you meant laser fine, it spins, loads disc fine by its sequence of working.... then your problem for it not displaying on the xmb is corrupt data.
corrupt data causes reading issues.
hi thanks for your information
