alwaysafix: @Kirollos Edward Do you mean you cannot insert the disk into the PS3, or it
doesn't recognise any disks? Make sure that heatsinks are free from dusk
to prevent overheating.
alwaysafix: @younes filali try ebay or amazon.
ricio cortes-romero: I just opened mine and I have a kem450aaa where do I order that from?
d2dak87: Do the slims all take the same lens? I'm just going to buy a new lens and
not the whole deck.
Princess Bubblegum: My storage is corrupted and stuck on 43%
alwaysafix: @Paolo Berrios It might be overheating. If the fan is loud and running at
high speed continuously, then you might need to just clean out the air
vents. Good luck!
John Smith: Great tutorial, thanks
Surjeet Dadiala: Really appreciate the effort taken - 5 star rating. Even a lay man can
repair after seeing this video
Benny Walsh: Thanks for the great video. I have two quick questions if you have the time
to answer them:
#1: Do you know how reliable these replacements are? I've read up a lot on
my issue, and most of the information is old, 2008-2009, about fats. I have
a CECH 3001A (160GB slim). These threads tend to say that replacements
didn't last for very long, but I know the drives were also different, and
that the lasers were second hand or refurbished, as they weren't being made
any more. Are these lasers you buy brand new?
#2: Wondering if you agreed with my diagnosis of a dying laser:
Symptoms: PS3 loads, boots, everything fine. Had problems with two games,
MGS4 and Uncharted 1. MGS4 I got to the very end, and it froze on the final
credits. Freezes at the exact same moment every time--read the rest of the
game perfectly. However, I put a second copy of the game in, a friend's,
and it played through. Uncharted is similar--freezes at the same point
every time. I thought Uncharted might be HDD related, but it's just AFTER a
save, not during. I thought maybe the discs were scratched, but they look
almost perfect. I think maybe the laser isn't dead, but is dying and
getting weaker, and is having trouble with very tiny imperfections.
Guess I'm going to try cleaning the laser first, then resorting to
LyricalGunFire | (EyeofNY) Reviews-Naruto-Jstars: Hey. So I've recently installed the laser I bought. And the moment input
the disc in, it automatically did the ejecting noise. Could it have just
been a problem in the installation process? I'm hoping that's the problem
and not another problem with my ps3 or laser. Any tips?
Sotiris pit: nice demostration mate! but what can be the problem if the disc is spinning
and the game doesnt start?? not even shows the cd(game) icon on the xmb
menu... like there is no cd in there... thank you!

alex naddei: my dvd drive spins then stops then spins then stops about 4 times till it
grabs the disc again then does the same then it gives up and keeps the disc
is this a laser issue? i was almost certain it was till i watched this
video and yours dosnt spin at all....could it be my motor ??
alwaysafix: @falquot3 The games that are not reading, are the disks scratch free and
Michael de Guzman: Sir, thank you for the video. I have a question. My PS3 reads regular discs
but not blu ray disc movies and when I play games sometimes it reads the
discs right away and sometimes I have to eject the disc and reinsert it
multiple times before it will read the game. Sometimes I even have to power
of the PS3 and repeat the inserting and ejecting the game before it reads
it. And when I say read the disc I'm saying the disc icon will shop up so I
can start the game. Any knowledge on what I'd causing this would be
appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Kirollos Edward: well what if mine freezes every time i have a game inside of it after 15
mins of playing it whats that problem because i changed the disk drive and

to accept any disks
charles jones: PS3 error (ffffffff) what can I do
cj altman: I did even thing you did and when i put the disc in it spined a little then
stopped. Is it the same problem?
Victor Banales: This is the second time I had to replace this crap, I'm getting a ps4..
Tevo41: My slim ps3 has a connector directly underneath the disc drive. It will not
spin if you forget to connect this.
Eric Ryan: I can't remove the two screws holding down the power unit, I've tried

bluray movie, it recognizes it on the PSmenu, but when i click the disc to
