ps3 faulty disc drive
ps3 faulty disc drive –
just got my hands on a 60gb ps3 with faulty disc drive and just wanted to know if it is an easy job to replace the lense or drive.i know about the drive having to be married to the mb.i have done quite a fair few 360's and wii's,and need to know b4 i open it shall i try it or drop it into the sony shop?
bought this as my ps3 lost blu-ray playback due to downgrading.
was just wondering about the bu-ray being paired with the ps3 motherboard,would the drive in my old ps3 work in the new one if i swapped the logic boards around?
Swapping logic boards will work for same drive types, there were 2 different drives in the fat. And more different logic boards. As long as both drives share the same sled/laser kem-410 or kem-400 you can swap.
You can pickup a new laser on ebay for around $50, just fitted one to mine and it was easy to do and works great.
