Optical drive not working

2 replies 117 views Edited Dec 22, 2012

I recently slapped a 500 GB HDD in my old fat-body PS3 and it works just fine (powers on, digital content works, etc), but neither PS3 game nor blu-ray's work.

 

Did I somehow screw something up when I put in the new HDD?

 

P.S. The system is all up to date and everything.

 

Thanks.

Probably not. Sounds like your optical drive failed. Either the laser's eye and/or servo (small electric motor). Those components can be replaced but better off replacing the entire drive.

If you got anything from me, it's to find your thing and do you.
