whats wrong with my ps3 drive? –
hey i recently bought a ps3 off a guy, he told me that he got it quoted from a "professional" and was told that the motor was the problem
so i bought it and went to ebay and bought a new motor..what is wrong with my system?
- smooth drive insert
- smooth drive eject
- when i put in a disc, the disc wont spin...but the blue light is on and top right of the screen shows a circle icon spinning.
- nothing seems to load or move once the disc is in position.
You sir have a bad laser.
^ how sure are you with the laser? :P i dont want to spend around $100 for a replacement and not getting it fixed
hes right..its the laser.you could try cleaning it.

Is the intrusion of dust?
Have you tried all the options in the recovery mode?
The diodes die in them lasers all the time. When there is a bad laser the disk will spin for a sec then quit.
You can get a laser alot cheaper then 100 bucks. Check ebay you may have to wait a while but you should be able to get one for 50 bucks. Depending on what model you have you may be able to get it even cheaper then 50.
