ps3 disc problem –
Hi, i'm new to this forum but I've been looking around for a while.
I've recently had a problem with my ps3 slim as it won't read any ps3 games but loads DVDs and CDs just fine.
The problem is that it's struggling to read the disc (i can hear it spin and then give up and repeat).
My guarantee has already expired so i opened it up. i tried to clean the Blu-ray lens but that didn't work, so i inserted a game while the ps3 was open to see if the Blu-ray diod died,
but it's not dead, as the disc reads i can see that the Blu ray lens turns off, the disc stops and then it tries to read it again.
I'm guessing that the light emitted by the Blu-ray diod has weaken(my system is two years old), but shouldn't it just die out instead ?.
I wanted to see if anybody has had a similar experience and if it really is the Blu-ray laser that needs to be replaced.
The Blue-Ray diode could still be bad even if it still lights up
