I was doing the hot swap method with ps2 games and then take in the disc stopped working. It wouldn't budge and it didn't make any noise. I got it unstuck but it wont take in DVDs. Can someone help me?
It happened to me. See this thread: http://www.ps3news.com/forums/playst...elp-77513.html
I repaired mine by changing the circuit board on the bottom of the BRD as the last picture in that thread shows but I do not actually know which part of the board it is malfunctioning.
Well when I took the drive apart and inserted a game when i took it off it shot out at me and I replaced the disc fast. but after that it locked up. I am so screwed I put it back together and hid it in my closet.
Can you explain abit more what actually happened? Did you take the drive apart with the disc still in? If so, when I have done it before the black runner down the side of the blu ray drive needs pulling back. Also, when you put the top section of the blu ray drive to the bottom section, flick the white plastic leaver back and it should align up better.
If you replace the entire blu ray drive I know for certain you must have a drive from the same region as you PS3. For example, if you have a PAL system, you need a PAL blu ray drive. A Jap blu ray drive would not work in a PAL system and viser verser. If you can only get a different region drive, swap the circuit board on the bottom of the blu ray drive as this holds the data for the drive being married to the console.
