Disc makes funny noises when loading and cant connect to the internet. i bought it at a pawn shop and dont know how to tell if there is anything wrong with it but the warrenty is voided.

Hi and welcome to FixYa

Ok for the internet problems try connecting it directly to your internet modem without the router and also try connecting it with the wireless option of the ps3, if none of those options works, your ps3 network card is pretty much fried. About the disc making funny noise you might want to first if you know nothing about ps3 take it to a repair store after the diagnostic of the funny noises the next symptom you are going to get is problems reading bluray discs and after that you will probably have to replace the WHOLE DRIVE piece or if you are lucky just the PS3 lens. here are links for more info about prices:

PS3 Whole Drive:

PS3 Lens:

remember after buying any of those check your PS3 Model.

My ps3 do not want to read any disc

The problem which you are having is a faulty lens, unless you want to get down and dirty, and try the repair's yourself I would recommend option 2 send it to Sony for repairs. If you choose to open the PS3 take all precautions, and be aware you are responsible for any problems which you may cause to the machine. The Lens can be found on eBay, be sure you get the right model for there are (3) three different type of lens. As always unplug your PS3 before any repair's take place, I hope this helps, best of luck

Here is an example of what your need ( ) please be aware that this is only one of three different type of lens which it may or may not be compatible with your PS3.

Here is the driver download page from Acer:
just select your model, once you find your PC/Laptop model select the appropriate Operating system and download the drivers, Viola there you have it, best of luck, hope this helped

I have a ps3 with a kem400aca, it was made before 08 so it can with on laser i bought a new one and i was told the 2laser would work but having fitment problems

You must get the laser that is compatible with your system. ACA is an extension for the kem 410's. You have KES/KEM 410 ACA and then you have the KES/KEM 400AAA.

If you have a 'single eye' laser and trying to replace it with a 'dual eye' laser, it WILL NOT work.

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

My 60gb ps3 can play regular dvds and ps2 games but not any blue ray related games or movies. The blue ray movies or games will either play for a little then freeze not read the disc at all or give me an...

Okay, this is a REALLY common problem. It's more likely than not that dust is on your lens. Best bet is to buy a Laser Eye Cleaner disc and hope that fixes the problem. If not than you will have to contact sony. If your still under warranty they will fix it for free. if the warranty has expired, then they will charge you a repair fee

KEM-400AAA - Full Assembly, Single Lense Laser and Deck (20, 60, 1st gen 80gb)
KES-400AAA - Single Lense Laser Only

KEM-410ACA - Full Assembly,Double Lense Laser and Deck (40, 2nd gen 80gb)
KES-410A(KES-410ACA) - Double Lense Laser Only (40, 2nd Gen 80gb)

I have just replaced the laser and the disk sensor because it would not read any disk i put in. now i have replaced these parts it still dosent read the disk !!!

I'm sorry to say, Richard, but based on our professional experience -- most of the lasers on the market for the Playstation 3, model KES-400A or KEM-400-AAA, are either used or refurbished. If you replaced the laser and it's not working, most companies offer a short return policy. Call them ASAP and exchange or refund the laser.

PS3 cd drive spindle moter is broken!! need replacement

You have to use the same one. There are only two kinds: single laser, dual laser. (kes-400a / kes-410)

The laser is the problem, not the motor. the motor won't spin because the laser has to be in working condition. sounds weird, I know....but that's just the way it is.

Let me know if you have any other questions.
