    :wtc: I think she passed. She's hardly reading BD's and lately when games DO work, they freeze up and different intervals

    Anyway, anybody experience this issue and had success:

    repairing it themselves?
    call sony? (uggggh 150 bones)
    sell it and rebuy? :)hsugh:)
    smash it?

    any help would be appreciated
    :wavey:

    i got lucky and bought a BD drive off CL for 35 bucks. its easy to replace it yourself if you want to go that route

    does it need to be a certain model?

    ive read in other forums there is one for an enitre assembly, and one for just the laser portion

    I dont know what the failure is, honestly, I'd prolly be better off buying the entire BD assemby, case and all :dunno:

    there were like 3 different internal builds of the PC through out the larger system. so it would depend on your system... 20gb, 40gb, 60gb, 80gb, and 80gb bc.

    dunno which is which though.

    Just buy a slim. Don't send it to Sony. I did, and they fixed the YLOD, but 6 months later the bluray drive died.

    Chances are you'll get another unit with something else dying.

    ...I was selling a gym on kijiji a month ago and got the same type of response. Dude was a lawyer from Toronto, in the US for something or other so he couldn't pick it up. I had to ship it to his son going to school in Africa... But he'd pay me back for the cost of shipping it to Africa...

    If an e-mail has the word africa anywhere in it, it's a scam.
