PS3 Slim 2001a wont read discs, time for new controller card?
PS3 Slim 2001a wont read discs, time for new controller card? –
I bought a CECH-2001A (PS3 slim) that wont read discs. I thought it would be a easy fix by replacing the laser as I've done 3 successful laser repairs. I don't know if the blu-ray drive has been replaced before I bought it so it could need to be remarried. I bought my 1st PS3 just before Christmas 2012 with a update loop problem and a bad laser, so I'm still pretty new to the PS3 scene.
It loads discs fine, the XMB clocks spins, the blue laser flashes on then the red laser turns on and it pulses up an down but the disc never works. It spins slowly on and off resets but never gets up to full speed. CDs actually spin up, load and show on the screen but has a "The data is corrupted" error. There's a video on YouTube www youtube com/watch?v=phFxv4u08vU that shows my problem but thats not the fix (I'm new so I can't post links yet ).
I've replaced the laser twice and a new deck but that didn't fix it. I started in safe mode and tried all those options but that didn't work. I also formatted a new hard drive but no luck there either. I've tried a bunch of fixes off the internet like hold the eject button until it resets the drive and tilt the ps3 while inserting a discs but nothing works.
That's why I'm thinking the blu-ray control card might have been changed before I bought it. Is there an easy way to check this or do I need to downgrade from 446 and jailbreak it?
Any help or comments would be greatly appreciated, Thx
