[Answered] PS3 Laser appears to be faulty help?
I purchased a new KES-400AAA laser after my PS3 (20GB model) stopped spinning discs. I installed the new laser and inserted a disc. It appeared to work, but less than 10 minutes later when I hooked it up to my tv it wouldn't spin the disc.
Now, I just tested the new laser, and I know it's toast. Do you think I got a faulty laser? Or do you think there's something else wrong that fried the new laser?
Right now I don't know if I should try purchasing a new laser or if I should send it in to Sony to replace/repair. The one I have is backwards compatible, and I'm pretty sure I wouldn't get the same type back.
However, I've already spend $50-$60 on the replacement laser and I'm not any closer to being able to play games.
the laser can't read the disc without it spinning. i.e. if the drive isn't spinning the disc at the correct speed even if your laser is still perfect it won't read it.
Your problem isn't with the laser, or you can disregard this and replace your laser again.
