Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console
60g PS3 will not play any blu ray dvd or games. Tried several movies and games with same result. Works fine with cd's and non blu ray movies. Just replaced the complete laser assembly and the PS3 still will not recognize any blu ray dvd or blu ray game. Looking to fix myself. PS3 is out of warranty. I do not want to send to Sony.
It sounds like you bought a defective laser or it is the chip on your "sister board". There is a chip on the circuit board thats on the bottom of the Blu-Ray drive and it has a silver rectangle on it. Some say that that chip is going bad on some machines. I have repaird 60+ PS3's this year and I haven't had this happen to me yet though. I would suggest trying another laser, then if that doesn't work try a "sister board" from the same model of PS3. I'm still not possitive if that is a possible solution though. The "sister board" is supposedly keyed to only work with the mother board it came with. Well, I hope this helps. Good luck!!

Tips for a great answer:
Sadly if these don't work, you will need to give Sony a call, and have that coffin mailed your way.
