bluray problems –
Ive go a ps3 back that i repaired and gave to a family member before.
This time it wouldn't eject discs, so i had a play around and just ended up giving it a new internals but kept the laser. i put it back together and it takes and ejects perfectly, the logo appears it the top corner of the ps3 screen but it doesn't spin the disk
I then tried using the drive out of my ps3 and the other ps3 logic board and i get the same thing. I then tried several other logic boards and got another one that showed the disk in the corner but still wont spin, anyone have any ideas?
they need to married together swapping them around wont work,but im sure there a tut to marry blu ray drives to the ps3.
I was using the correct logic board, i just tried a few others to test as ive been told that there are only a few different types, out of the others i tested only one other bought the spinning disc logo up in the corner of my tv.
the drive never starts spinning though, i also tried another drive that is out of a working ps3 and that wont spin either. I am trying to find out why it wont spin using the correct logic board
when i put another incorrect board on it doesnt have the logo in the corner but the disv will spin, so its a board problem, would swapping the three diodes solve this?? its on 3.56firmware so its not possible to flash another board
Did the boards that got any response have the same number next to the A in the upper right corner of the logic board? I was told (by someone selling these logic boards) that if the numbers are the same, that it should work without having to remarry the drive, but I guess different firmware could also cause trouble and could maybe be remedied by reupdating the FW once new board is installed if overwritten with the version newer than both the MOBO and drive FW if different. ( This kinda seems more reasonable that certain groups of boards would pair rather than Sony having to key every single individual console to one particular drive just for the sake of efficiency...)
From my research, the laser needs to activate the spin up so if the laser is weak, no spin.
From my experience replacing a 60 gb cecha01 logic board BMD-001 (ver A 1) with a 60 gb cecha01 logic board BMD-001 (ver A 2) the improper marriage to the board results in ZERO activity as if it isn't even connected (no blue led, no load, no power, no life) not responses that are almost but not quite working.
If you have a known good laser from the same model drive try switching just that.
If when using the same laser and drive internals on all boards you get NO SPIN of the disc no matter which you use (but icon appears or not in the corner depending on which board) the you have a bad laser - it relies on the laser to initiate the spin up, so without that working right, no spin.
If you get spin up but no icon on incorrect board with the same internals and no spin with icon on the correct board, then you likely have a borked drive IC (5-7 bucks on ebay and an intricate soldering job, but doable - or alternately you can swap the nand chip to a new board entirely - also doable - with patience; the trickiest part is removing the nand off the receiving board without damaging the trace. I damaged my nand donor board trace when removing the nand, so practice first if you do try this - I was more concerned with frying my nand off the donor board though since that was already toast anyway - I was able to get the other one off clean after learning where the sweet spot is for timing and temp.)
