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.
