My ps3 doesn't read any discs(games, blueray, or dvd). It is out of warranty. Is there a way to repair it myself?
thanks

Open it up, Find out which lens/laser assembly you have and buy one on ebay. You can do this yourself just google for a guide.

It's likely the diode for blu-ray playback is dead. You might be able to just get a diode but for ease/cost http://shop.ebay.com/i.html?_nkw=ps3+laser&_sacat=0&_odkw=ps3+diode&_osacat=0&bkBtn=&_trksid=p3286.m270.l1313 plenty there just find out what model your ps3 is and switch it over.

Most of the vendors seem to be in China and charge $40+ for the laser and $40+ for shipping. Even then it still takes them forever to ship the damn thing. Is there any vendor (ebay or non-ebay) and anyone can recommend??
