It's warranty time with that particular unit. Those blu-ray drives are specially made for the PS3, so Sony is really the only one that can fix it. They might have an authorized repair shop in your area, and that would work, but you can't just take it into any old repair shop. It sounds like they'll probably have to replace the entire drive as the motor burned out.
If there's some place nearby you can take it to, and they have a couple of spare drives to swap in, it shouldn't take very long at all. If you have to ship it off to some warranty service shop, it could be weeks to months before you see the thing again.
Our sons Playstation 3 CD rom stopped working and was wondering if anyone had any ideas with this problem or experienced the problem and fixed it.
The system works online fine and everything else seems fine but when you place a CD into the CD rom it just goes in and does nothing.
Would I have to send it back to Sony or could I just take it to a electronics repair shop to repair?
Thanks for any assistance,
