[Answered] Blu-ray drive Clicking Noise
Need some help with this one. My friend gave me his 40 GB PS3 b/c of what happened to it. Here's the issue:
When I insert the game into the console, it makes a clicking noise and nothing happens. It didn't read the disk and basically nothing. I want to fix this myself without sending it to sony. I might as well spend the money in buying a new PS3.
Send me the links or help me out.
CFWProphet is right, I'm pretty sure its the lens too.
the sensor on the slot tells the ps3 a disc was inserted but the lens cant read the data (that's the clicking noise your hearing). once you replace the lens, it should be good to go.
Personally, i'd rather have a YLOD than a busted lens (YLOD is cheaper to fix)
