PS3 Blu-Ray Drive Issue - Want other opinions! –
I've got a CECHG03 PS3 that I decided I was going to try and fix today. It had the "no video" problem, which I managed to fix with a reflow. The PS3 now boots to the XMB with no problems.
However, there is an issue with the Blu-Ray drive. I put Resistance 2 in it as a test, and this is what happens:
1) Drive takes the disc.
2) The blue light on the front of the PS3 does nothing.
3) The clock on the PS3 doesn't spin.
4) No game listed on the XMB.
5) Upon pressing Eject, the drive won't spit the disc out!
Now, to me, this sounds like something more serious than a dead laser... but I wanted other opinions t osee if anyone had any ideas. ATM I'm guessing bad blu-ray board, in which case I'm probably screwed and I'll just sell it as faulty... could be good for someone who want's a JB/CFW system (It's running FW3.21).
