You might not actually need to spend any money on a PS3 repair guide at all- instead you will need to purchase a new Blu Ray drive (or laser lens itself and simply replace the lens) But even before you do that try the following things:
Clean your game disks
Clean your Blu Ray drive (get one of those laser lens cleaning kits on eBay or Amazon)
If that doesn't work then I've got a free step-by-step PS3 repair guide that will show you with video and text instructions how to replace the Blu-Ray drive yourself. Its all online so you don't need to download anything either
Yes, this is correct. The PS3 motherboard needs to be kept with the original Blu Ray logic board, any other simply wont work. The only way you will be able to sort this out is to try and get hold of both the motherboard and Blu Ray logic board from another PS3. I would suggest looking for faulty PS3's where the Blu Ray drive is not reading games. You could purchase one and just swap your drive over.
Ive had the same problem with mine. I have a universal remote and a blu ray player separately installed on my tv. The only way i was able to play the ps3 without calling geek squad to reconfigure my tv was to unplug the blu ray and put the ps3 in its spot and push watch bluray. It worked great.
I had same trouble in the beginning.
I have 80G PS3 and tried pairing and also registering.
I solved it by taking out the batteries then going to the menu where it says Register Blu Ray remote (System 2.40 version) then put the batteries back in and you do as the instruction says => Press Start and Enter button at the same time for 10 seconds ... it will say it registered.
Be careful, you cannot replace the motherboard simply. The particular blu ray drive logic board and motherboard are paired together with an encryption key when sony builds it. The drive will not work with another motherboard. You need to get a new blu ray board and motherboard that came from the same unit. More of sony's cheap tricks to make you spend moolah. Espescially after it seems they break righttt after the warranty goes out.
