Good night everyone,
yes that's right, had a friend's PS3 lying around, it didn't read PS3 Bluray discs, so i ordered a KES-410A laser lens (just like the one which was in there), exchanged it, but the problem was still there.
Ordered another one from a closer shop (from spain), received it, exchanged it, the problem was still there, contacted the shop saying that the lens should be faulty, they replaced it, today i received it and exchanged it again, same problem, reads cd-audio, dvd-video, but no ps3 games
i'm starting to think that the problem isn't on the lens, but somewhere else, i exchanged a handful of KES-400A before (all of them solved the problem), but this is my first KES-410A and it's already giving me a headache. the disc doesn't even show up on the xmb.
From what i see, there's no solder point to remove (like in older ps2 laser lens), not even "pot tweaks". What you guys recommend? All answers are very appreciated. Cheers
I'm still on a dead end, but now i know the laser lens that i received is working fine, because i tried to run a bluray movie and it plays the movie without any problems.
The ps3 is a fat 80gb PAL on 3.55 firmware (official, never jailbreaked or cfw'ed) Further testing shows me that the laser lens are perfect because it plays bluray movies flawlessly, so i have no idea what's wrong with this ps3.
It's a 80gb fat PAL system with 3.55 official firmware.
