Blu ray controller board?

6 replies 264 views Edited Dec 27, 2011

I had the 80gb model cechk01 and was going to replace the motherboard and was wondering where exactly is the blu ray drive controller?  I have read multilpe places that the motherboard is married to it and they must be together.  Well i take it apart and all i can find is the motherboard and wifi board.  Where is the blu ray board?  Is it in the casing for the lens?

why are you replacing the motherboard?

You might as well replace the PS3 completely.

The ribbon that goes from the motherboard to the drive?  With this ps3 the ribbon comes out of the drive case and straight to the motherboard.  Is it inside the case that holds the discs?

I guess so, I just looked up an eBay auction for your system model, and there is a separate DVD drive board. If you don't see it on the outside of the drive, it must be on the inside...
