PS3 Slim blu ray drive compatability question
PS3 Slim blu ray drive compatability question –
The drive in my CECH-2002B stopped working recently. I took it apart, blew the dust out and it worked again briefly. By the time I put the screws back in it had died again. When I say died I mean that it DOES boot but doesnt detect discs. I dont have a lense cleaning disc but might be able to get my hands on an old one I used to use on a VCD player. Do you think this is worth the effort before taking further steps?
I also got my mittens on a CECH-2102A which doesnt work. 3 beeps and red flashing light on boot. Can someone tell me if I might be able to take the drive from this machine and put it in my original one? I understand I'd have to swap the daughter boards but I guess my question is: are the two drives similar enough to work or am I going to break both machines?
Option 3 is to sell both on ebay and make $50 to put toward another second hander.
I have almost the same problem. I've bought used PS3 slim 250 gb( CECH 2004b) from some guy for 100 $. He told me that blue ray is not working and I was thinking if I jailbreak PS3 I will be able to play games from HDD without any problems. After I did all that work I tried to launch Mulitman and there was just a black screen. Any app or game that I tried to launch ended with a black screen. So i google it and I "found a solution" I had to change a logic board(daugther board) So I opened a PS3 and inside was bd KEM-450AAA and BMD 061 which is not original logic board for that model of blu ray. So I bought original Logic board(BMD-051) for that model of blu ray. I swapped them and I still have the same problem. My question is- What's the solution ? I've spend my last money on this ps3 and logic board. I don't want to throw it in trash can. Is there any possible solution for fixing this problem ? Please guys help me.
