[Answered] How can I tell if my ps3 bluray drive is dead?
I hadn't used my fat ps3 in a few months, went to update MultiMan to latest version, after the update none of my games seemed to work from the DISC ICON anymore, some error code kept coming up. reinstalled BDEMU2.PKG & Restarted the SYSTEM, now no GAME DISC ICON shows at all anymore with any game disc in the BluRay drive..!!
I'm not getting any Lights of Death or any Error Codes or anything now..!! Nothing even shows up when any Bluray Disc is inserted into the PS3.. How can I test to determine whats causing this problem..?
When I insert a disc I hear these 2 disc read sounds then 4 Nuck Nuck Nuck Nuck sounds then nothing but that Infinite Loading Icon in the top right..?

I would say dead laser (i fix ps3s for a company near me) you should clearly see the blu-purplish light on start up if ya dont get a new laser its rare for a controller board to go bad and even it was you would have to remarry it to the MB. if you have access to another system open that one up and switch controller boards and try the other bluray in your system (should work).
Also i have found a few times complete drives for just a few dollars more than the laser. shop around and look for the best warranty on the laser (longest i have found was 6 months). If you want PM me and I can send you the links where i buy mine.
Good luck with the PS3.
