Hello, I have gone through a ton of posts on here and other places looking for an answer to my drive problems. I have a CECHA01.
Just bought the ps3 and it would not accept disks at all. I could push them into the slot but it would not take the disk. I opened the PS3 up and the drive was misaligned a little bit. I realigned everything and now it accepts disks no problem. However, it will spin a disk a few times and then stop. Also, it will not eject the disk at all even if i hold down the eject button for 10 secs. When I first got the ps3 it would do its emergency eject if i held the eject button down for 10 secs. Another thing i noticed is the blue led does not blink at all now and before i opened it up it would. I also have the sensor with the smallest cable ever connected and hooked up.
There is only two connections for the drive the ribbon cable and power cord. I can see the blue laser turn on when a disk is inserted but it stops spinning after 10 secs of spinning.
The misalignment I initially fixed may have not been the only problems that arose from the shipping.
Anything you guys have is appreciated.
