    If you reassemble the drive, and the disc won't insert or eject:

    Sometimes the various arms will not align properly when putting cover back on.
    Take cover off of drive.
    Loosen screws to take off top cover.
    do NOT completely remove top cover.
    Lift cover a small amount until you hear a click.
    reinstall metal cover etc. without turning drive upside down.
    should fix.

    Just throwing this out there, hope to get an answer.. Sent my ps3 to a shop last week to have the laser replaced.. System wouldn't read games at all.. Now I have it back and it worked great the first day, day 2 not so much.. System now reads games no problem but every game I try to play just either freezes during the intro or gets caught in a continuous loading screen during the intro with no progression.. Not sure if this is even the drive or another problem.. If someone has any knowledge on this any help would be appreciated..

    anyone help me on this one.
    Got a console that failed on 99% update.
    swapped the hardrive and the ps3 formatted it
    Performed 4.46 update with sucess but now blueray drive not working.
    Laser seems to be reading it and disk is spinning but wheel on top right corner no movement.
    Wondering if bluray board is blown or a way to retrieve it.
    I figure if it performed update and as we know it verifies the blueray drive it must be the correct board or is it.
    I got this console faulty already with the warranty sticker removed and wondering if this can be salvaged

    This definitely sounds like a missmatch. You can do an update with a non-fitting bluray drive, as long as it is just there.
