How to Replace the PS3 BluRay Laser

About this fix

One fault that sometimes show its face is the PS3 failing to read disks correctly. Sometimes, cleaning the drive with a standard BluRay cleaner disk will resolve the problems, so we would encourage you to try this first.

If, however, the cleaning doesn't work and you don't want to send it to Sony outside the warranty period and pay through the roof then you can replace the laser in the BluRay drive.

This process isn't easy, and you need to be extremely careful when carrying out this process.
