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.
