About 6 months ago my bluray drive died, so my dad who works for an in surance copany sent it to some people to get it fixed for free. Well, they changed the power supply and the disc drive, but when I got it back the other day (yes, they took that long), there was a white plastic stick thing blocking the disc entry. I couldn't be bothered to send it off again so looked around for some info and saw it had an easy fix, so I took it apart and manually reset the drive. The plastic thing went down and all appeared to be fine. I put it all back together and...it won't read anything. It's like the ps3 doesn't even recognise the drive. The discs go in and out alright, so it's got power, but it doesn't spin or anything. I unbuilt it again and notice that the laser isn't lighting up. The laser base moves around on it's track no problem.. What the hell is wrong with it? The laser was coming on whilst the plkastic thingy was up, so why wouldn't it work now? Could static have shot off my fingers? I'm really really clueless as to how to fix this.
Anyone with a bit of experience at solving this problem maybe could help me out please. Thanks.
