recently I have begun fixing ps3's for myself and my friends, I can fix most problems, no sweat. I am finding the biggest problem is the bluRay failure. A KES assembly cost about 50 bucks new. but why pay 50, for a new assembly when all you need is a laser diode. Which you can get for 20 buck american.
I managed to successfully change the diode without any static discharge released. the blu ray diode is bright and clear, but it wont read the disk. the disk starts to spin then stops, starts again and stops. I can only guess maybe my alignment is off, if it is, it is only a fraction. Can anyone help me with this?
I can find no post online anywhere. only about changing the whole kes assembly, which my 3yr old could do.
