First, how simple is it to change a blu ray drive round? I have a spare fully working one so do I have to remarry it as they say or just change the boards on bottom round? both are from 60 gig ps3.
Secondly another one I got was working fine but the fans were maxing out within a minute of turning on so took it apart, put new good thermal paste on and when put back together the eject/standby button on front isnt getting power.
Tried with 2 other boards I had spare and 2 other spare cables that attached the board to mobo and still nothing, also tried a spare psu for the same type and you can hear the slight crackle at back of pc when cable is inserted or you press the switch so I dont know if its a ground issue.
Thanks for that, I will also ask whilst I am here if its worth it to upgrade the firmware as its on 3.62 right now (the working one) if I plan on downgrading again as soon as I can afford a E3 flasher i.e is it any harder to downgrade.
Disc got jammed in one I was testing so had to take it apart but curiosity got the better of me and I lifted the track up and popped one off and the cogs came off with it, not broken but cant find a guide to fix it.
Then I tried a blu ray drive I had spare but the track didnt work on that one so had to take that one apart and ended up doing the same.
So I need to know how to get the tracks and cogs back on.
