No longer spinning discs?

#1ZenoxioPosted 6/23/2013 3:26:59 PM
I have the original fat PS3 and it seems it no longer spins any types of discs. This came out of nowhere; but I don't know how to determine if it's a lens issue or spinning mechanism issue.

Does anyone have any good links to some guides on repairing this? Thanks!

My Googling has resulted in little; most being Youtube videos with no details on the model/etc.

Happened to my 80 GB phat last year. Just bought a slim instead of fixing it.

Sorry but you may have to send it in for repairs or just replace it for a slim.... Whatever you do though, I recommend paying 20 bucks for PlayStation Plus (if you don't already have it), and backing up all of your save files with it. When you send stuff in for repairs at Sony, you lose it all!
