from what you tell it seems the laser isnt the problem, the bluray controller board is somehow broken? if it would be only the laser it should work with running homebrew and games that wont need disc. At least i think not 100% someone might be able to confirm this?
make sure the "contact pin" under the bluray drive is connecting to the drive, and have u tried the recovery menu?
only asking since it sounds like it isnt the laser thats the real problem making the PS3 not read discs.
well it could be but if it would i think homebrew work, as i said not sure tho.
1. Have you tried recovery menu? it might help if there is some driver/database error making the drive faulty.
2. And the ground contact pin thats under the drive and the metal case that covers the motherboard, to make sure it has contact, read several people had the bluray drive to not read disc and it was as simple as that pin not making contact and had to be bend up a little, and it started to work fine.
3. And also make sure there isnt any cable loose or corrosion at the board wich may indicate an contact problem.
Good luck and feel free to ask if something is unclear!
yes i have i tried with reinstalling the firmware and all the options in recovery menu!
And tried new cabels for the blu-ray drive. :-( no luck! but when i can reinstalle the fw, that menes that there i connection, RIGHT! if the controller board not working, this would not be possible right?
last option new laser, is its not working after that i will just wait for a new hack that can support of no drive connected in the ps3... but dont expect that to happen anytime soon.. :-(
But it would be nice if there was a hack with no bluray drive support lol then i could replace the blueray drive with my 3.5 HDD 1tb drive nice
