More BD drive issues –
So, I made a thread a few days ago here : http://psx-scene.com/forums/f177/int...e-issue-95940/ (Interesting BD drive "issue")
I fixed the issue on that thread by replacing the cable that connects the BD controller board to the motherboard.
But now, I have other issues with the BD drive xD
So basically, the BL2-001 optical sensor has its cable broken (ordered one a few days ago, should receive it soon). So, when I booted the PS3, the drive would try to swallow a disc (that's not there) for 8 seconds, and after that it would work perfectly.
However, it went worse. Now, the drive tries to swallow the disc for 5 seconds, then it tries to swallow it for another 3 seconds but at a faster speed. Once it stops, it will not swallow any disc I try to insert. When I press eject it tries to swallow for around 15 seconds, then tries to eject for 5 seconds. If I press eject then insert a disc, it will swallow it, eject it and afterwards it will swallow/eject discs just fine, until I turn off the PS3.
This only happens when I boot the PS3 without disc. If I boot it by inserting a disc, or there's a disc in when I boot it, it will work perfectly. It also reads games flawlessly.
I noticed there is what I believe to be another sensor in the drive (BL1-001). I'm thinking something is wrong with this sensor aswell. What do you guys think?
Thanks in advance.
EDIT : I just noticed that sometimes this does not happen (just now I turned on my PS3 and it just tried to swallow for 8 seconds and would swallow disc properly afterwards) but if I insert a disc, it will happen again at next boot.
