PS3 Bluray drive mechanism HELP!
I hope someone here can help me, as this problem I am having is driving me mad!:cry:
I have a 40gb PS3, with drive model of 410AOA (i think, not at hand to check) it is the one without the sensor on the top and pink cog.
Anyway, I opened the drive up to replace the laser, then realised I had the wrong one, so closed it back up without touching or removing anything in the drive.
Problem is it now seems that the mechanism has stopped working, when a disk is inserted, it takes it in, but seems to run the motor longer than usual, and does not spin up the disc. I think this is down the the sliders at the side not moving to raise the deck to the disc. Also it seems that the "pincers" on the lid that remove the magnetic spindle dont open correctly.
I have tried to work out what needs to be done with no avail, and all guides seem to be aimed at the older drive model.
Where does that metal "boomerang" arm need to be hooked onto, as it seems to only be locked into the right arm, not the one that connects to cogs? I seem to think this may be one reason?
Any help would be great!
