so basicly what this reader does is tell you if theres power coming from the motherboard or to the logic board if there isnt then its a deeper problem? clever little tool
also is the power cable, not the ribbon i think thats the data cable? is the power cable the same as the 360 drives one, the old 360 i mean, can i use my 360 power cable and plug in to ps3 to test if its the cable? and does it matter wich way the cable goes around, the power cable i mean, the one you labeled 1 2
ive just ordered a ribbon cable just to be sure as there only a few quid anyway
model number cechc
You can't use the cable from your xbox. They are not the same.
But you should check the ribbons and cables first.
It may be the sensor that detects the disc going in. I think on that model there is a little sensor. See the little green square thing in the pic below:
