[Answered] Epic PS3 help
So I'm all out of ideas and i need help.
I have a PS3 I inherited from my brother that had broken on him a while back. Having no warranty/proof of purchase, I got a replacement laser for it and repaired it. It was working fine. Movie went in, played, came out. Same with regular cds and games. I only wanted it to play SF4 with it anyways. Now, After playing SF4 for a week, i wanted to play a movie on blu-ray. So i tried to eject the disc and it would try to come out but fail to come out.
I held the eject button and everything but no avail. I was forced to open my ps3 and drive to take out the game. After putting everything back together again, I tried to insert a disc but it won't accept discs. As in, it won't start feeding in. If i force a disc in and hold the eject button it comes out so I'm sure the mechanism is fine. So basically that's where I'm stuck at now.. my drive is screwed.
That's the story of my PS3. The poor thing has been through a lot. All I want to do is play SF4. The game itself is installed on the hd. I'm fairly new to the PS3 community so I'm not sure about all the alternative ways to play games. Can you all please enlighten me.
Thanks for your time.
