Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console

Spare parts Hey gamefixer, Have you had any luck getting any spare parts for the playstaion 3 whether its parts for the Mother board or cosmetic case pieces? I emailed sony just looking for case pieces and they told me I'd have to take it to a authorized dealer.....haaa. I've also emailed a couple of chip companys which turned out to be Chinese and the answer there was No! I'm still looking , but do you have any leads? Thanks

    It's hard I know. All of the companies that supply most of the brand new parts are in China, and they do not like to help out that offten.

    No sorry. I recycle what I can from other machines. Best thing to do is get a broken one on eBay and try to make one good one out of the 2.

Sell it for spare parts is the only thing you can do. Water makes the DS Lite scrap. All effort to repair it will be hopeless

Try using a different hard drive. The reader arm may be stuck on the platter inside your hard drive so it can't fully boot. Thanks.

Hey robhyper,
The Blu-Ray diode is blown. With a healthy laser when the disk is seated by the load mechinism the laser will power on a bright purple beam at first and start spinning the disk if one is detected. If it doesn't detect Blu-Ray media then it turns to the standard laser (red) and it will bounce up and down a few times trying to focus. You need good ol part number KES-400A which is a new laser.

Originally I drew the same conclusion you did and wasted a bunch of money on the part KEM-400AAA which is the whole laser and spin assembly. You don't need all that. Just get a good laser and carefully install it and you should be good to go. Be very careful installing it though as it is VERY susceptible to Electrostatic Discharge. There are only a few sellers that have this part. the best thing to do is go to ebay and type in the part number. But beware, make sure they have a guarantee on them. I just bought 5 of them and not one works properly. There is one seller he is a little more expensive, but at least the lasers work!! Good luck!!

I would do both. Just keep the gun moving to keep from scorching the board. Also after heating one side, let it cool completely before doing the other side. You may even want to test it before doing the other side. Good luck!!!

Hey sml625,

According to information provided by the manufacturer, the Sixaxis controller is unfortunately not compatible with the Playstation 2 and is only supported on the Playstation 3 console.

Hope this helps you out.
