I recently bought a new laser mechanism with deck for my PS3 slim. My older laser stopped reading discs, therefore I bought a new one.
I installed the new laser with deck and now its not accepting/sucking discs. However, when I reassemble it back to my original laser lens, it worked and it accepted/loaded the discs. But the original doesn't read discs though which is the reason why I bought a new one.
One thing did go wrong when I was assembling the new laser mechanism with deck. The brown ribbon had 2 ribbons. One long one and a short one at the top of the other ribbon. Well I accidentally split them apart when I was trying to connect it back.
I just connected them both manually into the connecter even though both are not stuck together like it should be.
Could be this be the reason why it isn't accepting discs ?
I attached an image I found online, so you know what I'm talking about.
Any help is appreciated, thanks.
