PS3 Slim Disc Drive Problem
PS3 Slim Disc Drive Problem –
Alright, PS3 hardware newbie here.
Tonight my PS3 decided that it's going on strike.
I have a disc in the drive but my drive light isn't on. I've tried normal ejecting, force ejecting (holding the eject button for 5-9 seconds), and manual ejecting (using a screwdriver to turn the gear under the HDD hatch).
I figured out how to get the PS3 to think there's a disc inserted by sliding a pair of tweezers up the right side of the drive to activate the sensor, but when I hit the eject button all I get is a clicking noise.
My final resort is to "reset" the drive to where it's in it's default-no-disc-in position, but I have no idea what I'm supposed to do inside the drive. I've tried googling and YouTube, but all I've found are tutorials for the A400 (phat) drive.
Does anyone know how to do this and would be willing to help? It would be greatly appreciated.
