OK - so I recently bought a slim, it seems to accept and eject discs yet it doesn't play or load games.
I am pretty competent with repair of the old playstation blu-ray drives, and i'd love to label this as a laser-fault, but this doesn't fit in my mind for two reasons;
1. On the old playstations, the disc icon in the top right hand side would spin even if it didn't load which was a telltale laser fault. This one doesn't. Should it?
2. The disc doesn't seem to really spin up to speed. See video - is this normal?
I've recorded a video of the process with the upper cover on the drive removed in the hope that someone can give me some assistance.
Any help you can give would be greatly appreciated.
