Logic 3 Laser Blaster P99L instructions for use

I received the above laser blaster, but can't seem to get it to work and there are no instructions with it.I have plugged it into the console, but not sure where the yellow plug and the smaller plug goes, as if I put it into the tv, the screen is blank. Hopefully you can help. My son is only 6, but loves shooting games, so I thought it would be fun for him.

The games shop said they only work with games for older kids, but I did try it with a 12+ game and it won't work. Is there something to be done for each game, or would the game say something?

Hope you can help the non-techno mom

Things like this are usually caused by overlooked manufacturing discrepancies. It may be best to contact Sony with your system's model info, serial number, and date of manufacture. They may be able to help you under warranty. Greg Holiday

Maybe the TV is old or the disc is scratched

SOURCE: Playstation won't read game disks

Your CDs could be scratched, try a movie DVD and if that plays, then clean your game disks, if not; well, time to get a new PS2.

SOURCE: PS3 laser Problem

It sounds like you bought a defective laser or it is the chip on your "sister board". There is a chip on the circuit board thats on the bottom of the Blu-Ray drive and it has a silver rectangle on it. Some say that that chip is going bad on some machines. I have repaird 60+ PS3's this year and I haven't had this happen to me yet though. I would suggest trying another laser, then if that doesn't work try a "sister board" from the same model of PS3. I'm still not possitive if that is a possible solution though. The "sister board" is supposedly keyed to only work with the mother board it came with. Well, I hope this helps. Good luck!!

Try using the scart cable instead, if you are using the HD cable and your tv is not HD then you will have problems

Where can i buy disc drive for ps3

Ok for a start, the Blu ray drives are all over ebay but it is very important you get the right one.
For 40 and 60Gb consoles you will need a drive that has the KEM-400AAA laser and deck inside and the logic board is screwed to the outside of the drive case.
For 80Gb and higher you will need a drive that has the KEM-410ACA laser and deck inside it, The logic board on these drives is actually inside the casing.
Some newer 40Gb PS3's also had the newer type dual laser drive too but they are rare.
The table below shows the standard Blu ray models. Any model newer than the CECHH-** should be using the newer dual laser setup. That would include CECHL,CECHJ,CECHK,CECHM etc etc

Blu-ray lens model Description PS3 models KEM-400AAA The original with single lens (includes mount) CECHA-CECHE KES-400AAA Single lens using cheaper parts. CECHG KEM-410ACA There are two lens, one for CD/DVD, and another one for Blu-ray (includes mount) CECHH KES-410ACA There are two lens, one for CD/DVD, and another one for Blu-ray. CECHH KES-450ACA There are two lens, one for CD/DVD, and another one for Blu-ray. CECH-20xx
One last thing to remember is that you need the logic board that is currently screwed to YOUR drive. This then needs to be swapped to the replacement drive as it is paired to the motherboard and without it your system will never read discs again.

Hope this helps

Playstation 3 not playing any discs or dvd.can go online no problem

Possible that the optical head is dirty or worn out.

Please try to put in an ordinary audio CD track and see if this is detected. If yes the optical is working, if not there is no laser scanning and the possibility of the head being faulty is high.
Now certain cleaner disks are not read and so will not be tracked. The best is to clean manually the laser head eye with a cotton bud with a very soft action/ without pressing of the lens eye.
If there is still no result then watch the CD if it spins or tries to spin. If the head unit moves up or down to focus or in and out of the drive, if so the board seems to work correctly and the possibility of the optical head being the suspected fault is closer.
But if any of the above seems otherwise we must recheck with possibilities of the processor board

My ps3 disc player doesnt read any cd,

I am afraid your laser lens has gone, you can buy a replacement laser or drive but keep the old drives logic board which is needed by the PS3 motherboard.

Hope this helps.

Play station will not read discs of any type

This is pretty much saying your Blu Ray laser has died. You will need either a new laser or a new drive, available from lots of places, however dont throw your Blu Ray drive away if you do replace it as you need the logic board that is on the drive.

I replaced my laser in my xbox 360 and now wont eject.

might sound daft but have you connected the cable properly from the logic board to the laser. i once forgot to connect this and it did the exact same thing.

the laser might be dead too which can cause the same fault.

there has been a LOT of lasers about at the minute which are dodgy so i would check all the cables and if it does not work after that contact your supplier.

i would also take a reading of the 'pots' and adjust them to 282 - search the net for a guide on how to do this.

I switched my 360's disk drive wont recongnize the game disk

This is more than likely your laser that is dead and its possibly a samsung or hitatchi drive, be careful when buying a new laser because there is a lot of dodgy ones around at the minute which can damage your machine or at the very least will be inferior and not last long.

It could also be the logic board or the drive belt too, if the logic board is faulty no matter how many lasers you try it will do the same, the fix is to replace the logic board.

if its the drive belt well this is very easy to try and is what id try first, open your 360 tray and look inside the 360 you should be able to see the drive belt, make sure its attached properly and then take this out. replace it with a new one and see if this recifies your problems.

SOMETIMES if a drive belt is stretched it will not close properly and then a fault like yours will occur. its all a matter of eliminations. Drive belts can be found on ebay.

Playstaion 3 games wont load how can it be fixed. the clock (loading icon) stops. no errors appear no disk shows up.

listen for the disc to start spinning

if the disc spinns then its prolly just a dirty laser lens and if it doesnt spin could be a bad laser i doubt its the blu ray logic boad cause the ones i have seen that were bad the disk reading icon never stops, this has also happened on broken lenses where it never stops. ussually if it stops its bad motor or dirty lense.

Xbox 360 Disk Failure


dependant on how old the console is, the amount of hours played, and wether it,s in a dusty or smokey enviroment, can all be known factors of laser wear or dirty laser head.
if you eject the dvd drawer, and blow into the top of the cd/dvd draw you may move or dislodge any dust. secondly i,d try a laser head cleaning disk. these are the options without actually dismantling the console ( which will void any warranty ) failing this you could remove the dvd drive, and clean the laser head with a cotton bud/Swab moistened not soaked with lighter fluid or isopropyl alcohol.
if none of this works out, you can assume the dvds laser or drive mechanism is faulty or worn..

hope this helps you to get up and running again.
