Actually i need to know what cable you removed or how look like .Usually the only 2 cable i do know if you replace your laser are...1 the connection between the motherboard and the laser(that cable is brass color) and the other one is the one for the ON/OFF button

Hello, I have a problem with my Xbox 360 console. I'm attempting to open my Xbox 360 for the fifth time, and this time, one of the silver screws will not come out. When I use my power drill on it, it

I actually had a problem very similar to this, although it was with one of the black screws. If the screw i indeed stripped, CAREFULLY take a dremel tool and cut a small slot into the top of the screw so that you can use a flathead screwdriver to get it out. However, do this as a last resort.

3 flashing red lights and my power brick is orange

Check around the holes underneath the motherboard where you removed the x clamps to make sure you havn't scratched through any of the wire traces.
Make sure that the gap between the motherboard and heatsinks are correct, have you got one nylon+one steel washer still in place.
make sure that the M5 screws are tightend correctly and diagnally.
I think you mis-understood the baking part,the idea is that you block the fan from cooling the gpu (not the cpu) for about 20 mins, then let it cool down before giving it a try.
If non of this still works get an error code by pressing the sync button hold it in then press the eject button the lights will flash in sequence, if all 4 flash that is 0, 1 flashes = 1, 2=2 , 3=3, do this 4 times,you should end up with an error code like 0020 then post back.
let us know if this helps.

Tape strip came deattached

You can't. That strip is more or less a wire. You'll need to replace the whole laser assembly.

Ps3 wont read disks

Same thing happened to mine, I had to go to the store it was purchased from and have them re-create a receipt and call Sony to have them forward me a shipping box so I can send it to them for repair. More than likely its the disk drive going bad from what I was told.
