Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console
I made sure to search here, and the first 50 or so hits google came up with before posting. I've been seeing WAY to many of the same posts getting the same answers everywhere else, and I know how annoying it can be to have to re-answer the same questions. So..
After my ps3 started having problems recognizing certain BD games and movies (i'd usually have to reset it and it would load it), it finally quit reading blu rays all together. So I searched, and I searched, and wound up replacing the laser with a new one. Just the KES 400A, not the whole of the KEM 400AAA assembly.
Well, upon reassembly, my PS3 no longer loads discs. Whenever I try to put one in, the blue light blinks 3 times, but none of the motors turn on. If I manually insert the disc, it won't even aknowledge one is inside of it. When powered on, the lens does raise up and down, though I'm not sure it if "looks" for anything.
I will be doing the repairs myself, due to cost reasons, but if anyone knows where I can buy a NEW or 100% working refurbished blu ray drive, as a whole (metal case, black plastic with all gears, working lens and motors) I would be happy with that. Even pics of EXACTLY how its supposed to look, inside and out, when reassembled, in as high of resolution as possible, would be spectacular.
That what you need?
