    It is a Retail Console.

    It looks like a retail console to me since debug/test does not have blu-ray logo on the case. Well, if the debug menu works, it's definitely a debug unit. You said it plays retail ps3 games fine, then the board and blu-ray drive are a matching set. All you need is to replace the blu-ray drive laser len.

    model number is KES-400AAA. Ebay is a good place for that. good luck

    another possibility is someone put a DECHA00A back panel on a DECHJ00A 40gb debug/test unit. Hence, it won't play ps1/ps2 games.

    ok now i`m pretty confused... the enclosure says playstation 3 test... on the (back where the outputs are) is a sticker with serial saying DECHA00A at the end.. at the bottom is another sticker saying playstation debugging station.... i`m running debugging fw 3.20 and it plays retail ps3 games it also says that Im able to downgrade to FW 1.00.

    also can access the SAK (don`t know if this info is important) - but for now it only plays ps3 retails... i`ve tried every other media CD-R + DVD-R nothing happens, nothing shows up -> if the unit is retail it would at least play dvd retail movies ?! but it doesn't...

    i`ve access to the debugging settings and i can start the ps3 in debug mode.. but i get an error when i try to access _PS3app (think thats its name) folder in games section...

    so how can i check if i got a retail unit in a debug case? i`m buying a bluray movie this weekend and will see what happens...

    If it plays Blu-ray moves then ya, it's not a Debug. Another way to check if you have a Debug PS3 in a Retail PS3 case is to try running the PS3 Debug PKG Test File on it... if it runs and displays "PS3News.com!" then it's a Debug, if returns an "80029567" error as it is activating prior to downloading then it's not.

    Yeah, your system is a debug - can't always go by the cases, first runs, or last runs of Debug units for a model will at times have different cases, markings, they may even just use a retail case (as in, does not say TEST etc)

    However, as others have said - it may indeed be your laser. Of course, burn the disks at the lowest speed possible on a good media - and give a listen to the unit, see if you hear it "struggling" at all or not. If so - a new laser may be in your future.

    In my case, when CD/DVD inserted, the drive does not even recognize there is a disc present. Hence, no spining disc logo on screen. but when blu-ray games or movies inserted, it works just fine. Definitely a problem with your laser. Well, the good side is you indeed have a working debug/test unit. Just get the laser replaced and you should be good to go.
