Question about Sony PlayStation® 3 (60 GB) Console
I opened the Laser drive to replace the laser and I can't get the top back on. There are a couple of spring loaded arms that I'm not sure what position they go in. Any help on this?
I found a place to get a replacement ps3 blue-ray player, gamerepairworld.com. $140.00

Look on Ebay. Refurbished blue ray drives start at 89.00. Easy swap.

Wait for a fix from Sony, this is OS related, if you have downloaded a update and your console starts acting up and never has before Confuses says 80% Sony hit your PS3 with some wacked out mojo with that update, either way if your Blue Ray disk has been damaged it needs to be repaired to play PS3 games, Sony holds the patent to Blue Ray technology so no matter which direction you sail this ship Sony stands to proffit from your Blue Ray failure, so the choice is send your 60Gig powerhouse PS3 to Sony and get some thing back that looks like your PS3 60Gig but all that sweet hardware you liked, you know FULL Backwards Compatibility and the Emotion Chipset, I will take mine to a local repair shop that will replace the drive for $120 before I would send it to Sony, that way I get back what I took in there all $500+ of it thank you very much!

Yep same here I believe Sony should be responsible for the repair and have a recall.

I've had the same problem where it will take the discs but wont read any of em. I tried cleaning it, but turns out its not the lens, its the motor thats not working. I havent been able to find out where to get a new one yet, but ebay seems like the best bet, just buy a junk one and hope its not the drive thats junk... lolz

I believe if we are all having the same problem we ought to let someone know who can do something abouy it!!!!! Sony should be responsible for the repair and have a recall. I have also torn mine down using you tube and cleaned the lens with no luck.

Chlarock: I'm having the same problem. Did you make any progress? I think it's just going to take a lot of tinkering.
