BTW, both lasers will move however they do not try to read the disc, and a spinning disc logo never shows up....
If the "spinning disc logo" does not appear, that is a very BAD sign.
Normally it means the drive is not the original drive with your PS3 system.
The drive board is married with the motherboard, and if the board is wrong, the "spinning disc logo" will NOT appear.
Even if the laser is totally dead, then the "spinning disc logo" will STILL appear and spin when you insert a disc.
If you are sure the drive board is the same original board which came with this ps3, then the only other causes can be a burned BA driver chip, or the long flat ribbion link cable between the board and ps3 is bad.
