I just put in a new bluray laser, replacing a faulty one on a ps3 slim. I replace the whole mechanism KEM 450AAA. The ps3 will now play DVDs and Blue-ray movies with no problem at all.
I have tried several of each and they work without hesitation. However ps3 games will not work. I managed to get one game to work after repeatedly loading it again and again, but after removing it once and reinserting it, it no longer works.
What it does:
When you load the game it spins for about 10 seconds then the drive makes a sound like it is ejecting the disk, but it doesn't, It then spend for another 10 seconds then stops "The spinning clock on the menu, also stops at this time".
What I've tried:
I have installed the assembly completely and reinstalled it. (No change).
I have checked all the connections. (No change).
I have went into the recovery menu and reset the file system, the playstation, and attempted to repair the file system. (first time it said there was a file system error, but nothing now, and no change).
Any suggestions. I would say that its a faulty assembly, but it plays Bluray movies perfectly.
