hi peeps ive found a way off fixing ps3 laser kes-400a's

 

it so easy to fix

 

all it balls down to is bad joints on the blueray laser....

 

first i made a laser tester

 

made with 2 wire's and a 9v battery simple

 

then i i tap the 2wires on back off the blue ray laser and bingo it glowed up blue

i then i resolider the joint and bam works like it just come out off the box

 

if u need help drop me a email @ *************** and i'llsend picture's etc etc

 

saves u paying out $100 bucks for new one

hi all

ive been inadated with emails asking on how to repair ur blue ray lasers

 

it really easy

 

1:all u need is a 9v battery and the connect that fit's the 9v battery make with the two wire bare at the end

 

2: with ur playstation all taken apart with the front of the playstation facing u and the drive on the right,take the blue ray cover off so u can see the laser now looking from the front on the left hand side is where u got to resolider but u see 5 joint on the side off laser the top middle joint is the - for both laser/and blue ray laser the joint to the left is laser red + and the one to right is blue ray

3:remove laser and just tap the wires on the joints and if u get a glow red move wire to the other + for blue and if it glow a blinding blue laser then resoldiered the joints and refit and it should work but if the blue light is really really dull but am sorry to say but the didoe has burned out

 

i hope this help i did have picture but i deleted them months ago and am not going to take my ps3 apart to take pictures and it still working sweet since i fixed and dont wanna risk **bleep**ing it again

cheers mike

Ive put together a little something here that if have the technical skills you should be able to follow here  http://wudokai.blogspot.com

hope it helps, i have fixed loads of lasers this way and its pretty simple, lasers that I fixeds over 8 months ago are still going solid in a few of my mates machines.

Thanks to the original poster for the info
