PS3 new blu-ray won't take in disc except when booting
The blu-ray drive on my old ps3 was broken, so I replaced it with a new one. Followed a tutorial on Youtube and used my old circuit board.
When I boot it up with the new drive, it won't take in any disc. So I figured I might've installed it wrong or something. Pull it back out and making sure that everything is connected properly. When I booted it again, I noticed that the blue light is shining so I figured maybe I did it correctly this time. But nope, it won't take in the disc.
Out of curiosity, I rebooted it and try to insert the disc when the blue light is shining. To my surprise, it works. It accepts the disc and can read it. I can play the game with no issue. However, when I eject the disc it won't take it back in. It will only accept a disc when the ps3 is booting up.
So basically, my new blu-ray drive works fine except it will only accept disc when the ps3 is being turned on.
My question is, what exactly is the problem? Did I did something wrong when replacing the drive? Or is the drive just faulty?
