Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console
My boyfriend got the dreaded 80010514 error code on a 40 GB PS3 he bought second-hand from an internet auction, less than a week after getting it. The seller originally told him he'd repair it for free if he'd ship it to him, but now refuses to reply with an address so he's stuck trying to find a fix for it himself.
He's surmised that it is indeed the laser that's the issue through research and what the machine sounds like when it's trying to read (I also believe he's made a comment that the blu-ray disc he got with the PS3 won't play), so he's decided to try replacing his blu-ray with a new KEM-400AAA blu-ray mechanism.
However, we've found some places that say there is a "soldering point" to prevent static that has to be removed (??? some people contradict this).
Does anyone know whether there is, if so, what sort of soldering iron is required (I read somewhere there are special anti-static soldering irons or some such).
Also, where is the point located if it does exist? He is buying the mechanism from a Chinese company and I'm not sure if he's going to get any instructions with it.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
No, there is no soldering involved with replacing a kem-400aaa. You can do this with just a screw driver.
