 thats harrd question to answer.!!  But  if you  did yourself then  maybe it was human error. but  if had some one else do it for you . you got screwed over with poor workman ship becuase i have never  heard of it happen 2wice after a replace  the 1st time.

 

I cant give  detailed answer becuase i dont have one to give onthe facts given.. I dont think the hdd can  mess up  your laser performace... i think the laser messes  up becuase of internal dust .

 the ps3 blu ray laser is unique.. It not just a regular blu ray  dvd reader.   So i think they just swapped out on you.. It nothing much you can do now but  send it sony and have them fix it the right way..I hope you the best the luck with that and  it should go smoothly and work  for  a better period of time.. I dont trust mom and pop shops with fixing consoles, they will  do  you in ever time..

The hdd does not cause it...... Just a stroke of bad luck and a bad batch of replacement lasers.

I used to repair PS3s and have gone through this as well with my supplier a few times. The best that I could do with my customers is eat the cost and fix it for free for those that were out of my 90 day warranty

yes only when  it has a mass amount of  internal dust or the gamers  shut the console of during a update the  hdd  can corrupt. But it can be revesed and fixed. Thats wonderful thing about  ps3, it can never really break/


 Some times folks  know their stuff and you resepct them  and all.  Sometime it best to just pay the  money  becuase nothing ruins a friendship like them screwing up your loved mercandise..lol.. I have have  been there  in that issue with my lawnmower.In the long haul  you save more than  you spent..  I understand money is hard to come by but  some times you have do spend that money  Smiley Happy. i wish youthe best  inthe future.

 

  If he is  telling the hdd  corrupted  your laser..   if you had major  dust issue yes it possible. But if that is not  the case then,  he swapped out on you with  laser than cant read ps3 games and just dvd  and music becuase   ps3 blu ray laser is unique and has alot  of purposes functions that normal  blu ray laser cannot do. becuase it has alto componnets that make it do these thing  and  a regular blu ray laser just wont cut it.. Any way  good luck and happy gaming in the future Smiley Happy
