Weird PS3 Blu Ray Drive fault
Hi Guys, I've repaired loads of PS3s but I have come across one which has totally baffled me, its a 60 Gb fatty, basicly the fault with this one is that it just will not physically load a disc into the drive or eject etc, its as though no power is getting to it, but when you put the disc into the tray the optical sensor "sees" the disc there as the light flashes but the motors dont draw the disc into the console.
I have tried a 100% working drive to rule out an alignment issue but this Still did not Load disc into the drive.
tried a 100% working ribbon data Cable, still did not Load.
Tried changing the grey power cable also, still does not load disc inside.
Checked with a different unpaired Logic Board, still the same.
Tried the original logic board on another drive in another PS3 and it Does draw the disc inside that PS3 and spins the disc fine but obviously wont read it as not paired to that console, so this rules out a faulty Logic Board.
I can only conclude the fault is somewhere on the motherboard itself, but would like to know if anyone else has come across this before or has a fix.
The PS3 can still play games off the hard drive without any issues. Any help would be appreciated.
Second Weird PS3 fault in the world
I have been the past two weeks looking at youtube videos and forums searching for someone with the same symptoms. But it seems there are only two guys in the world with this problem!
