I'd really like to just do a repair cheaply and quickly but what guarantee do I have that it won't happen again? Are newer PS3s less prone to this? So what options do I have?
1. Send it to sony, they'll repair it for $156.
2. Buy the part I need and repair it on my own for $90. I'd need a Kes-400A laser deck (laser alone works too and is cheaper)
3. #2 only I sell it after and buy a new, slim PS3.
4. Just buy a new Slim PS3
5. Other (Suggestions please!)
If anyone has experience with this (error 80010514 amongst others) or has any other tips on how to fix my PS3 cheaply I'm all ears.
So today I followed m_d_amore's posted video and cleaned the PS3 lens but I'm still running into the same issues. Blu-ray discs dont even appear on the XMB sometimes, I guess now it's time to get a new laser. DVDs still work fine.
