PS3 FW2.17 - Just want some info
Bad logic board or laser?
I'm 99.9% sure that it is a bad laser...The console itself looks absolutely like new (no even small scratches or dents etc.) the warraty sticker is still intact so thats the reason i think it's the laser.

edit : i forgot to mention that drive take disks in and out with no problem , there is no "grrr" or "brrrr" sound when it accepts disks , just wont read them.
bout the discless thing u asked for, i know that 3.55 cfw isnt really good in playing backups discless. i heard that 3.41 CFW/JB together with the use of Hermes Backupmanager will allow u to play discless ( there is now a BM out for 3.55 cfw Users that is based on the Hermes one and allows u to play most of the games disless now on 3.55, but i never tried that BM (its called IrisMananger) and cant tell u if this is true or not.
About the Emulator stuff, there are some good ones out there. i prefer the SNES and Sega Mega Drive Emu atm very much. You can find Emus there:
Downloads - PS3 3.55KM Emulators
there should be two pkg files for 3.41 and 3.55 Version of every Emu outthere.
Now playing: Big R Radio - 80s Metal FM - Aerosmith - Janie's Got A Gun (Album Version)
irismanager has about 45% compatiblility discless
Go to hermes 3.41 you will have 95% compatibility!
eh, pick up a laser off ebay for $60 (with a 6mo warranty too!) and get yourself bluray/dvd movie playback as well! might as well have a fully functioning ps3 - games & movies (dvd & bluray)! i'm kind of curious how much you picked up that ps3 for... the ones i happen to watch with a bad bluray (usually bad laser) typically get to around $175 not including shipping. i've typically picked up those kinds of ps3s cheaper on craigslist....
