    PS3 Fix Service?

    Any good PS3 Repairers on this forum?
    or does anyone know any good ones in Sheffield.

    My console has stopped reading games, it is a 40gb. Everything else works, just doesnt read the game. (Might just sell it on eBay)

    If you have any advice, please post below or PM

    Thank you.

    i forgot whats its called your laser has stopped working therefore no disc will work because you need to repair it at a local shop or you can try it yourself but i wouldnt , should cost 50-100 to repair but nothing major to worry about just make sure the ps3 is in a cool place and dont try to play any games just repair it say the laser readers broken

    Do you know if it plays DVD's?

    I have a drive from a 40GB, but there are two different types.
    If you send it to me, I can have a look for you.

    I would charge you for the drive and postage, which would be £25 for the drive and whatever a courier charges for delivery, which would be under £10.

    What do you mean by the 'Drive'.
    Doesnt it need a Laser replacement?
    It would be fantastic if you could help. It plays no games, cds, dvds.

    Depending how good you are at repairing stuff it can be done yourself - a friend did his own repair (he did do a guide as well but the website got hacked) - It took him an hour or so and £60 ish for the new laser.

    There are guides on youtube to give you an idea search PS3 laser replacement

    I tried that^
    No luck..... I rang Sony they want 130 pound, and thier person would come to collect it and replace it with a refurbished PS3 which is the same model (40GB). That's too much for in my opinion, i could get a used better ps3

    If i were you i would ebay it (sell it) and find a cheap decent used ps3 ..

    my local has one at this price, PLAYSTATION 3, Excellent condition slim line 120gb playstation 3, complete with controller and two games; Little Big Planet and Assassin's Creed 2.Comes boxed and in 'as new' working order. , £150.00. so you should be able to find a bargain.

    I'm looking for a PS3 40gb with warranty seal intact, that connects to the internet and does everything bar play discs. Ideally it would have old firmware but this seems to be a bit unrealistic as most people have updated to play online

    They go for between £49 and £65 on ebay, plus postage of £10-14

    I could pay £50 delivered via collect plus? (postage of £4.50) I have a wanted thead here:
