You voided your warranty by cracking your case man, you should have just sent it in to Sony for repair. I also suggest buying any system at Costco, they take back anything.

And yeah, your laser is bad, and since you cracked your case, you might not be able to get them to fix it for free.

The eject function is not working, the yellow led is blinking, as if the machin was reding a disk, but it never opens. I tried also to open it using the screen option but it does the same thing, the lead...


Take it apart and see if the laser is moving up and down (focusing). If not, then the laser focus servo is bad. After it focuses, the spindle motor should turn and the disc should spin. Remove the spindle lock from the top of the drive case and before it spins quickly place the lock on the disc before it spins to hold the disc in place. If all these processes occur and it still doesn't read, check the lens to see if it's dirty or foggy - clean the lens with "Q" tip and alcohol. if this doesn't work, remove the disk and see if a red beam shines through the lens - if no beam, the laser is bad.

Ps3 disk wont spin got it apart I fixed once when it wouldnt take in discs and now it stopped spinning


Sounds like the blu-ray drive is failing. Have seen it happen way too many times. You are going to want to call Sony for free replacement:

I have disc read problems.


I do hear that the controller card on that revision of PS3 can have failure issues... right now I'm waiting on a new bluray drive assembly for a CECHE01 because of, basically, the very same problem. This eBay seller(lives on the other side of the US from me) seems to know a good bit about these issues, and even provides his phone number for tech support. Search under his store for: CECHE01

Disk player is scratching my disk and the playstation is warm


This is caused by one of two reasons.

Either the laser is dirty,and the laser is trying to focus the beam to read the cd and it causes contact with the disc
OR
The laser itself is bad from hours (PS3's are known by servicers for burning the lasers out)

You can clean the laser yourself with a camera,a Q Tip and some rubbing alcahol,but unless you're an experienced Do-It-Yourself'er I would have it serviced by a technician.

BLU-RAY


Hey robhyper,
The Blu-Ray diode is blown. With a healthy laser when the disk is seated by the load mechinism the laser will power on a bright purple beam at first and start spinning the disk if one is detected. If it doesn't detect Blu-Ray media then it turns to the standard laser (red) and it will bounce up and down a few times trying to focus. You need good ol part number KES-400A which is a new laser.

Originally I drew the same conclusion you did and wasted a bunch of money on the part KEM-400AAA which is the whole laser and spin assembly. You don't need all that. Just get a good laser and carefully install it and you should be good to go. Be very careful installing it though as it is VERY susceptible to Electrostatic Discharge. There are only a few sellers that have this part. the best thing to do is go to ebay and type in the part number. But beware, make sure they have a guarantee on them. I just bought 5 of them and not one works properly. There is one seller http://myworld.ebay.com/jimmyestore he is a little more expensive, but at least the lasers work!! Good luck!!

Disk wont spin


are you a cute blond? i give you alot of credit, but your going about it wrong.
1.you need to know if there is red/blue coming out of the laser.
2.is the laser focusing (moving up and down)
3.the spindle height has to be at the correct height for the laser to read the disk (thus spinning it) and the spindle also had had problems with this unit. (you can clean it up )
4. once it spins the disk it has to read the TOC (table of contents)which means it has to move to the inner most part of the cd
5 send me you name address and if your busy friday! lol
