I am a noob posting here but been a long time fan. I have scoured the threads (40 pages worth) looking for anwers but failed to find quite the same fault. Any help you guys can afford would be most appreciated!
The story so far....
Got a 60GB fat with a dead laser/drive. I got a new drive and swapped over the logic boards. Tested and found to be working fine and reading discs etc. Awesome! So I put the lid back on and decided to update to the lastest FW (It was on like 4. something anyway) but it got stuck in the loop. I discovered that I had not reconnected the power wire to the BD before doing the update. I reconnected the wire (while the machine was ON ) and it went through the update fine after that. But now I have the following problem....
Power on PS3 = Blu-light flashes then stays constant on, but no disc is inside.
Inserting a disc does NOTHING. pressing EJECT makes the blu-light flash but again NOTHING happens, and the lights returns to SOLID ON.
Drive makes no sound or beeps and appears dead.
I have checked the voltage and the black wire from the mobo to the BD is at about 10.2V but when the wire is plugged into the BD it drops to about 2v
Any ideas/suggestions would be awesome.
