Hello. Ive searched these forums and scoured the Internet for answers for my problem. Ive tried a bunch of solutions other people managed to solve their similar problems with, but to no avail. Now I come here seeking help. I have an old PS3 CECHG04 giving me problems; more specifically it doesn't seem to spin any discs anymore. I replaced this PS3s laser about a year ago and after that it worked perfectly. It was recently I discovered that it doesn't seem to want to read discs anymore. I realized this about a week ago and at that time I hadn't used it for disc games for several months. After disassembling the blu-ray reader I noticed that while the laser moves, the discs aren't being spun. A blue light is being displayed, that from what I understand means that the PS3 is recognizing that a disc is inserted and the loading symbol is also visible in the top-right corner at the XMB. As an experiment I tried to insert my old laser assembly with the defective lens, that I replaced a year ago. The PS3 couldn't read the discs of course, but it could spin them fine. After that I dismantled this old assembly and put its disc spinning device(no idea what its called) into my newer laser assembly. I tried to attach an image of this device, but I couldn't as apparently new users aren't permitted to post links. I had no luck replacing the new laser assembly's disc spinning device with the one I confirmed to be working. So now Ive come here and created a thread of my own and I hope someone can offer some help. Ill gladly accept any suggestions or ideas as Ive ran out of them myself. Some questions: -Could it have something to do with the laser itself? I thought about this, but it seemed unlikely since the discs aren't spinning, but they spin fine using my old and busted laser. -Could it be purely mechanical? That some plastic parts aren't aligned right or something? If so perhaps someone more knowledgeable could tell me what to look for. Thank you for reading my thread. It I have mistakenly placed it in the wrong subforum I apologize and ask for the benevolent mods to move it. TL/DR: -Replaced old and broken laser assembly with a new one -PS3 reads disc fine for half a year -Recently it stops spinning the discs -Laser still appears to be able to move -Replace the spinning device on the laser assembly one I confirmed to work -Discs still not being spun by the PS3 What do?
