One of them may be able to read both ps2 and ps3 disks and the other may only be able to read the ps3 disks. another difference may be the power.

    those should be it, but they may also be able to focus to different ranges.

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.

Tip

Brown Clip KES-400A KEM-400AAA laser - Is it new?


For those who are replacing a PS3 Laser, particularly the KEM-400AAA or KES-400A (these are the same laser, one just has the deck included) you will often see online that there are refurbished “white clip” lasers that have a high failure and “brand new” brown clip lasers that are made by a third party and have almost 0 failure rate.

As someone who repairs PS3s, I would like to but an end to this *MYTH*

There is **no such thing** as a BRAND NEW PS3 laser expect for those made by Sony.

Sony does not sell parts to repair the systems because they do not want customers attempting repairs themselves.

Any web site claiming to be selling NEW brown clip lasers is outright **LYING** to you.

If any third party company did make PS3 lasers they would be promptly sued by Sony.

How do I know all of this?

Well, if these THIRD PARTY lasers are new, and being third party, not made by Sony, why have I frequently opened PS3 consoles with warranty stickers intact, only to find a BROWN CLIP laser?

The answer is because Sony makes these brown clip laser as well as the white clip lasers.

The quality of the lasers depends on the care taken in refurbishing them, NOT the color of the clip.

Find a reliable source and you will be OK.

I should note that I have used both Brown clip and White clip lasers and have seen both fail. Unfortunately these products have a high failure rate, this is simply unavoidable.

Find a retailer that guarantees the item for at least 30 days or that guarantees the item is tested before being sent out. If you do get a bad laser, make sure they will refund you.

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)

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.
