No it will not.... It surges the disk 2-3 times senses there is a disk and then starts it spinning if there was a disk in there.

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

PS3 80GB not spinning DISC


the PS3 sony Blu-ray drive is very sensible..you should check the drive sensors first...
Could be a defective motor that´s not spining the disc...
would be very nice to test another blu-ray laser unit...connected with your blu-ray controller board...and you wil find if the logical blu-ray board is ok..or dead..So you must have a hardware to test and prove a second opinion !!!
Good Luck !!!

Does installing a KEM-400AAA require soldering?


No, there is no soldering involved with replacing a kem-400aaa. You can do this with just a screw driver.

Ps3 wont read any games or discs


Hello. Try to do the reset feature first. Settings >>System Settings>>Restore Default Settings. Make sure you DO NOT do the "Restore PS3" feature. This will wipe your hard drive clean. If that doesn't work try this.
When you put in a disc, listen for the disc to start spinning. If you do not hear that then the laser and/or the spindle have blown out. You will have to get your Blu-Ray player serviced by a pro or Sony. Sony may fix it for free. They know that the drives are failing. So call them first. If you know how to do it yourself, you will need part KEM-400AAA / KES-400A if it is not spinning. If it's spinning and not reading the laser may be dusty or need replacement. The laser by it's self is part number is KES-400AAA. If you need any more information, please do not hesitate to hit my "Ask Me" button.

I hope this helps! Good luck to you.
