Ps3 disc spin
PS3 blu-ray drives are famous for this fault. sony know about it just like the YLOD fault but claim not responcabillity. which just sums sony up as a whole really.the disc wont spin as the motor that rotates the disc has shorted out (mainly due to poor parts i.e not brand new) as sony SHOULD be using.
sometimes the solder under the motor heats up so much it just melts and in turn also melts the contacts, thus stops the disc from spinning.
if your good at soldering and are patient, you could have ago at resoldering it again. then send sony the bill!! or do the easy way, open the ps3, remove the blu ray drive, take off the logic board (the main chip board at the bottom of the drive) and buy another drive from ebay. tip for you though, if you have a 60gb ps3, get a blu ray drive from a 60gb machine, if you have a 40 or 80gb get a drive from the same model, etc etc, you need the logic board as they are paired to the motherboard in the ps3, another cheap way sony tried to stop people fixing them and trying to force people to pay them for repairs. LMAO! anyway, when you get the other drive, just plug all cables in to your logic board and disgard the one the drive came with (the new drive i mean) and pop the drive back in once you get the bottom screwed back on, close the top, and that should be you all set again. hope this helps
