Has anyone had any trouble yet with the assembly replacements from psxboy? The first one I have installed in the drive has already failed! It worked fine at first, then it would stop reading and the screen would go black. Now it doesn't read at all. So all-in-all it lasted about two days! :(

    Hello, after reading all the great tips and advice on how to repair the blu ray i was wondering, can the PS3 read and play games if the blu ray does not work??
    No,
    it can only play games that are stored on the hard drive. But even for
    this, you will need the controller board which is attached to the
    bottom of the blu-ray drive.



    Shouldn't be any difference in graphics quality.

Was there a reason for opening up the blu ray drive? You opened up the blu ray drive itself? Once I have more information I may be able to assist you further.
Thanks,

    Here is a really good video of dis assembly. I am not exactly sure what part you were taking apart when this happened so this should help if its the drive itself. If you have a moment to accept and rate my solution accordingly I would greatly appreciate it.
    Thanks,
    Lee

MY PS3 HAS FLASHING RED LIGHT BUT THE GAME IS STUCK INSIDE HOW CAN I REMOVE IT??


The 3 ways of getting your game out. NOTE: If you do #2 you will still have to flux and reflow the motherboard to reset the blue-ray drive.

1. Is to strip your system down to the motherboard so you can flux and reflow the board.

2. Is to open the blue-ray drive and take it out.

My ps3 doesnt read disks


If your system doesn't recognize blue ray games or blue ray dvds but still plays normal dvds and music cds your lens is dirty. I had this problem and my factory and store warranty are up. I decided to take the machine apart and see what I could do.

If you look online there are several videos how to take the machine apart. I opened the machine up, took out the blue ray drive and opened up the drive. Once you remove the cover from the blue ray drive, take some rubbing alcohol and a Q-tip and clean the lens. I actually used my t-shirt to wipe it and blew on the lens and it did the trick. Before you assemble everything, plug the drive in and pop in a game to see if it works (or you will have to remove all the screws again.) This should solve your problem. If your drive doesn't recognize any media, your laser might be shot.

Once you tear into it and figure out how everything works you'll realize it's not very complicated. Otherwise you'll end up spending about 150 bucks for Sony to do the same thing.

My ps3 doesn't play blue ray movies


Hi,

This is a common problem on the PS3 unfortunately and is caused by a faulty blue-ray drive. Unit will have to go back to Sony for service.

You should try a DVD cleaning disk first to be sure that dirt on the laser lense is not causing the issue.

You can also open the case and clean the laser lense with a Q Tip and an alcohol cleaning solution.

If you plan on opening the case at any stage please ensure the unit is disconnected from its power supply.

If this fails and you are confident with electronics there are several videos on YouTube showing how to replace the drive if you choose to order it and do it yourself.

See an example below.

Hope this helps. Please remember to rate my answer. Many Thanks

Ps3 blu ray lens cleaning


What are you saying you screw up your $600 dollar console. OMFG i mean common man. Jeez luis. Well since you have your ps3 already open your ps3 system you should open again and extract cod4 out of your blue ray drive before you hook it up and all that. So take the game out connect the blue ray drive back put the system together and power it up. See if that works.

Ps3 not reading any disks


Normally ps1-ps2-ps3 has Red laser beam lens system. So it cannot read Blue ray disks. its not possible until you change it lens system. there are some commericially available Blue laser lens system. Buy one and fix it with authorised service personnel. all the best
