CECH-2001a No power to laser

Postby m4a2t0t » Thu Jul 12, 2018 8:05 pm

Having an issue with this PS3. The laser does not have any power. I have tried 3 lasers, 2 decks and replacing the drive board. The drive board was tested prior to the swap and it was powering the laser. Does the 8 pin chip I swapped contain anything that could cause the laser to not have power?

So, I guess it's going to be one of those weeks. Had a PS4 that would not spin the disk at all, the laser would move up a few MM, did that about 3 times and then reset back towards the disc motor, do it again and again. Took it apart, tried different lasers, decks etc. Put old deck back in, when the laser was moving I pushed it all the way back (away from the disc motor) and volia it magically starts working and no more issues.

Went back to the PS3 and took it apart and when I tested it, it started powering the laser. Went to test a disk and it spun for about 3 secs, stopped, tray readjusted and then stopped. Tried 2 other lasers, same thing. Tried a Bluray and it worked. Then I remember I had issues with that COD test disk in the past. Works fine now

Thanks
