That is unlucky. Must have been a poor quality laser. Try and get one with the "brown clip"

You could replace the laser or the entire Bluray drive.

I buy my parts at http://parts.consolerepairguy.com - the lasers are about $75 each and Bluray drives are about $100. (those are Canadian prices, ships to the US though)

I run a repair business and that place has best prices aside from Hong Kong which I don't trust.

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:

Blu ray's won't read

Most likely it is the KEM-400AAA laser.

I buy mine at http://parts.consolerepairguy.com they run about $75 each.

If you click on the laser there it will tell you which model of PS3 the lase goes with.

The PS3 system plays cds and dvds but no blu ray disc.


The ps3 laser mechanism has 3 separate diodes incorporated in one.
If the regular DVD and CD still works means that the blu ray diode is burnt.
You either send the console for repairs or purchase a replacement laser mechanism (KES-400AAA) and replace it yourself if the warranty is expired.

Ps3 will not read disc


Hi,
this could be several issues.
1:) try putting in A DVD Or CD.
2:) Check that the game your trying to read, is free from Dirt/Dust/Scratches.
If the console reads a CD/DVD ( movie et,c ) theres a chance that the Blu-Ray laser unit has failed ( Burnt-Out Or Other )
Check if the Console guide suggests the use of a laser Head Cleaning Disk ( Or Other ) ** Possible debris on laser read head**
If it reads normal CD/DVDs. Then I,d suspect the blu-ray laser is at fault. This will need to be replaced/repaired or calibrated.
