Alright I have 2 PS3's the 80 GB models. Both have the same problem and I replaced the laser mech in both PS3's.... however still neither will work.
Both of these PS3's have been reformatted, so it leads me to think they need some sort of update.
Anyway, if someone could help me out it would be much appreciated. Haven't done much work on the PS3's so don't know too much about them.
