    HE 40gb model will not accept discs. Tryed a good drive with this controller and same problem. Tryed this drive in another unit with another controller and will load disk but won't spin. Think the drive board is junk and a bad laser. How can the drive control board br replaced?

Hold the "Eject" button for ten seconds and try it. Oh and if you have a 40 gb model (2 USB ports) and the Eject button dosent work then try this, Turn off the back of the PS3 (Main power switch) and then hold the eject button (while the main power is off) keep your finger pressed on the eject button flick on the main power switch and it should sound like some HUGE fan don't get scared, wait until the fan stops turn off your ps3, start it up and insert the disk and IT SHOULD WORK

My playstation 3 cd drive will not play disc i just replaced cd

Check the disk for scratches. PS 3 &PS 4 Game systems may not play scratched games even if it is replaced. It is best to just buy the replaced game New to solve the problem.
Hope this helps you.

Front load DVD player will not accept the disk.

Invest in a new DVD will be much simpler, will cost roughly the same amount AND save you the hassle of finding someone to repair the broken drive gear (cog) on the insertion/eject roller (if all else is known to be working). You will find it on the left side of the DVD bay connected to a tiny white worm gear and even smaller reduction gear. If you are handy with a precision hobby mill, you can easily turn a replacement gear out in relatively short order with only the tedious tasks of disassembly and reassembly of the shaft end to deal with. Be certain to unplug and discharge the capacitors in the machine before messing about the inside of the player (UNplug player and press the I/O, "on button," twice). One sturdy knife blade, one standard philips head and one small philips head screwdriver will be all you need for disassembly. If you are capable of opening the chasis and the DVD housing, you will be capable of removing the speed nut from the shaft of the insertion/eject roller and of deciding from there what you should do. Good luck.
