HELP! Blue Ray Drive Problem 40gb PS3 (KES-410A)

I was given a PS3 console with a faulty DVD drive. It's got a KES-410A with two lasers and BMD-003 board. None of the lasers light up when a clear disc is inserted and the disc spindle does not turn. The analog clock (top right) turns once when a disc is inserted. The game disc icon does not show up in the Game menu.
Is is a dead laser or the drive board? The analog clock turns once, does it mean that it still has the original drive?
Update: I have tried it with another KEM-410A assembly (with deck) and it had the same symptoms. Also, I have replaced the drive IC and it did not help.
Can I just buy another BMD-003 board and swap it out or I needed a key like in the XBOX 360?
Thanks in advance.
