Help! My PS3 Drive is not taking in disc!
#1
My system is Kem 450 from 2504B. Won't take in disc. Changed all flat cables with working ones but still no go. What can I do to fix it?
Thanks.

Can you boot the ps3 from standby mode by trying to insert a disc?
Check (measure) these marked fuses.

Yes.
The ps3 works fine with another drive...
I also tested the not working drive with another ps3, same result. It won't take in bd. Maybe gears, motor? but I don't know how to fix it.

Is the blue led blinking if you try to insert a disc?
There's little to no info on these models.
Are there no circuitboards anymore on these models?

No blue light. the only circuit board is for the in/eject motor i guess.
I will try to put in bd without the drive top cover so I can see if there is any movements.

Well, I think even if the motor would be dead, the blue led should blink and you should be able to start the ps3 if you insert a disc.
Maybe one of the switches is bad?

I tested the three switches with mm and they have continuity if you press them...

I don't know if it's possible but you should also measure 3.3v somewhere on that board, if it's not there, none of the switches will work.

Edit:
Probaby at the solder point left to the printed text on the board

I am so sorry I was using a flat cable for 3k drive motor circuit board which different from the flat cable for 2k. Do you know where I can buy the flat cable for the motor/switch circuit board? All I see that they are selling is flat cable for the lens circuit board.

or maybe you have already an existing diagram for wiring the switch board to the ps3 motherboard?

I thought drives between the 3000 and 2500 were exchangable.
You don't have the cable in upside down? [Image: wink.png]
Or maybe cut a different cable so it fits 

Hardwiring dousnt seem to be so ideal, solder points are very tiny.
