The ps3 stopped reading original games so I replaced the laser with one from ebay. Games are now working but Blurays show up as data only. Is this just a bad laser?
What happen if you choose autoload when disk inserted and you put BD movie?

Agree. Surely a bad work, or ebay trash

Also, there's a bit of a trick to get the rail out that goes through the laser; you have to put a small amount of pressure on the controller board and slide the laser all the way to the back, furthest away from the spindle. Then you have the room and leverage to remove the rail without bending or breaking anything.
