it seems that this is a common problem regardless of the age of the ps3, the blu ray has died,found many a video on youtube , exactly the same symptons,ordered a new blu ray drive from ebay, just gotta wait a week or so to come from honk kong, even videos on you tube showing how to dismantle and reassemble, i spoke to sony they wanted £185 for a replacement, yeah right!about as helpfull as a kick in the nads!

me too,once youv'e seen the videos of how to do it ,seems easyish,alot cheaper than most repairers, quoted anywhere between £80-190,
i paid £42 from ebay for the whole blu ray rather than just the reading eye.all the info on you tube.

Actually replacing the laser is not very difficult either. Cost is usually about $50 US and takes about an hour when you don't know what you're doing. I can do it in 15 minutes now.

Its a bit out of topic but any how, i just got my playstation 3 around a month ago, and i realized around 2 - 3 days ago that my blue-ray is making noises when loading some games such as motostorm pacific and pure and it takes "hella" long to load the game, but once its loaded and im in the race it goes smoothly.

and some games such as street fighter 4 and metal gear solid loads fine (although i have installed the game into the hdd which could be why it loads the game flawlessly)

just wondering if this is a symptom of a bad blue-ray drive? or could it just be a dusty laser? if so is there anything you guys/girls would suggest me to purchase such as disk cleaners and so and where from.

and hey! good luck with the repair jayt07! update us on how you went k!

crikey, has it been 5 months already!
well i changed the blu-ray, simple enuff job, did not work!!!
seems like the motherboard was the problem as it stopped working altogether.
sony were'nt interested even tho they knew it was in warranty but i was not the original owner with no receipt! tossers. i just went out and bought another, if it wasn,t for cod4 online i wouldn't have bothered.
