PS3 Slim Blu Ray drive problems
Hey everybody, I've been trying to repair a broken PS3 Slim for the last two weeks.
The Blu Ray drive seemed to be broken as no games or blu ray discs would play. After the hard reset didn't fix anything I decided to replace the lens. That didn't seem to fix the problem as it still would not load any games or blu rays.
Next, I decided to purchase a different PS3 Slim blu ray drive from ebay (found only one seller.) The new drive would not grab my game disc so I took it apart to find out that one metal rod was out of place. The drive now accepts my discs but doesn't load (no game recognized on XMB menu.) The drive seems to be overworking as it spins a lot longer upon insterting the disc and is a bit noisy. The disc ejects really smooth though.
My only conclusion is that the metal cover is preventing it from working properly. Other than that, could the disc drive be misaligned. If so, wouldn't that prevent me from inserting the disc.
Does anybody have experience repairing a PS3 Slim Blu Ray drive? Any help will be much appreciated.
