Re: my ps3 doesnt play games or blu rays
how old is it? I got mine in the MGS4 bundle. the eject button is broken now (have to manually eject it via menu), the DVD/BluRays skip around a lot, and just recently the connectivity goes in & out a whole. might just be getting old.

Re: my ps3 doesnt play games or blu rays
Sounds like your blu ray drive is completely fucked. There's two ways to go about fixing this, either buying a mint or brand new blu ray drive on ebay which will range from $50-$80 depending on the condition and replacing the drive yourself with instructions on the net, or sending it to Sony, seeing as how your PS3 is out of warranty it'll cost $99 plus tax and shipping to get it repaired, then you'll have to suffer through the 3-4 week turnaround time. My suggestion is to go the do-it-yourself route since you seem to be knowing what your doing when it comes to taking it a part, but if you're wary then send it to an independent repair shop, it'll still cost you about $80 for them to replace your drive for you, but the turnaround time will be way quicker than Sony. Depending on rather or not there's one in your town it'll take a few hours-3 days to get your PS3 fixed and returned to you.

Re: my ps3 doesnt play games or blu rays
yea theres a place that fixes ps3s but if im going to spend money i might as well get a new one and just use this one on the side for games i buy online..oh forgot to mention if i leave the ps3 off for a few hours and put a game in it the game icon will load but when i select it i get a error screen but after that i put a game in i see the little loading icon in the corner after 15secs i get a clicking noise ..figure maybe there was alittle hope for the bluray drive since it still loads even tho i get a error or do you think its still a lost cause

Re: my ps3 doesnt play games or blu rays
Yeah....no it's fucked bro. If your PS3 wasn't accepting/ejecting games/dvd/blu-ray discs at all then this would be a fairly easy (and cheaper) fix, but no, it has too many problems, what's strange is that you mentioned that it reads dvds, and you cleaned the laser yourself, so I can't see the laser being a problem any longer, so I'm guessing it's something far more complex causing the issue, and your drive is just fucking dead basically.

You're probably better off just buying a new one. Safest way to get around it.

You can pick one up pretty cheap these days!
