so with the drive out the system thinks a disc is in (this has no effect on the de-hash stage though)
so i am wondering if one of the micro switches is being pressed inside the drive somewhere. if it is this would point to the drive needing to be reset.
did you try the drive reset?
unplug power cable press and hold eject plug power cable in
the ps3 should turn on then the drive should start moving (you should here the motors turning.
did you open your drive to access the ffc (ribon cable) better? you may have moved something inside the drive by mistake.
also try unplugging the white wires coming from the power supply to mainboard at both sides. then plug it back in ( i doubt this will do anything but it will atleast rule it out as a fault)
Regardless of the drive being in or uplugged. I have not seen a Blue LED
The top switch above the circle is pressed in
If all three switches are pressed in, the console turns on. I tried the drive reset. CPU Fan just goes max speed and turns off after couple seconds. I do not hear the motor or the Blu-ray drive working at all.
I've reseated the ribbon cables so many times now. I even got a replacement from playerpk420 for one of them and same results.
For this particular model, the logic board is built in the motherboard right? Shouldn't the remarry or software upgrade/downgrades work without the drive being plugged in?

at least this is how the fat's drive operates.
,just curious, if you turn on the ps3 dous the blue led blink for a while?
I have not seen a BLUE LED once ever since I got the console back.
Just gone done measuring with the multimeter. Got 09.5 Ohms. Nothing from DC/V. Motor/switch possibly broken?
