400A, Drive Issues, BlackScreens and CFW –
Ive been reading the forums following the site for about 4-5 months now, ive got the whole cfw, apps, backups, eboot and homebrew understanding pretty down pat. and i have done quite a bit of research on these, so im hoping you guys can help me out!
ok so i got a 60 gig ps3 from a buddy of mine who said the ps3 wouldnt read discs, then wouldn't eject so he opened it up and got the disc out and ripped out the disc, i know some springs on the top may be missing but it ejects the disc when i do a force eject with no issues, the runners on the sides are proper the one on the left is at the top and the one on the right is at the bottom. so i grabbed a new laser today and installed it it was a used laser from a ylod ps3 for $20. im pretty sure i saw the disc spinning at one point after the laser but it never did it again. im pretty sure theres nothing stopping the disc from spinning. ive tried hitting those two switches beside the motor and the motor didnt spin.
thats the drive issue
the other wierd issue is i did a sony backup to backup my gamesave data because i dont remember if i did a BDB cfw or not and i was unsure if that would effect the drive not spinning so in preparation of putting the new ofw to see if the discs work so i went to system, backup data, it said successful and 10 gigs in size. so i wanted to play one more game one more time and when i went to open multiman it went to a black screen..ps3 froze..soo i waited then held the power to turn it off, it took quite a while to power off, when i turned it back on i realized my external was not recoginized, so i plugged it into my computer, and just as i thought it worked. so now my ps3 wont recognize my external and no apps are working no games emulators or bm's are working all black screens. what did i do ahah
sorry for the long post i wanted to be as descriptive as possible
got the black screen issue fixed, can anyone help with the drive? 102 views and nothing?
can you please tell how did you fix it? same problems here. i'm on rebug 3.55.1 . all homebrew go black screen
i figured it all out, reconnected everything and it seemed to work, prob a loose ribbon
mod please close thread
