What causes the PS3 Slim laser fault?

The laser diode in all consoles, not just the PS3 Slim, naturally deteriorates to the point that they no longer read discs. The strength and focus of the laser reduces over time. It is normaly the Blu-ray laser diode that fails first as it is normally the most used. You may find DVD and audio discs still work as these use a different (red) laser which is on the same assembly.

Sometimes physical damage can happen to the PS3 Slim laser lens. If the console is moved or knocked while a disc is spinning inside, it can cause it to make contact with the laser lens and damage it. You may also notice a circular scratch on the disc when this happens. 

There has also been times where updates have caused issues with lasers too.

** We always recommend trying a few discs prior to booking this repair in to rule out a damaged disc. If you're having problems with one disc it may be that which is at fault **

How do we repair the PS3 laser?

The first thing we do before any repair is test the console to confirm the fault. We then proceed to open the PS3 slim and remove the internal PSU. We then have access to the disc drive. 

We inspect the mechanism of the disc drive to rule that out as a fault. If all is ok with the drive mechanism we swap the whole laser assembly for a new one. 

We reassemble the PS3 Slim at the repair desk and give it an initial test. If all is ok the PS3 Slim is passed down to the main testing bench where all consoles are stress tested and all functions checked.

Hazel Flanagan's enquiry was :

HelloWe have a PS3 which is suddenly not recognisingloading any discs DVDs or games. The little white circle in the top right spins for about 5 seconds then nothing happens. A month or so ago a Skylanders game froze and we had to force shutdown which took longer than normal and its since then the problem has started but not sure if its the cause or even related. We have tried restoring file system rebuilding database and restoring the whole system so were under the impression its a hardware issue.Based on this information are you able to give us an accurate quote to get it working again please We live in Feniscowles Blackburn and can come to you but if you offer courier collectiondelivery can you tell us how much this would be extra please as it would be easier.And would you be able to accurately say how long this repair will take please We are hoping to resolve asapat least before Xmas if possible.Lastly what happens if once you get the system you find that the problem is worse than you expectedquotedIf you need more information before quoting us please just email back I work from home so reply quickly. Bit wary of people trying to rip us off so we are looking for someone we can trust to be honest.Thanks for your time.Kind regardsHazel
