    PS3 CECH 3001B Slim - Lightning Strike - DVD Issue

    We don't work on these every day. Might see 1-3 a year, and typically an easy fix at that. Mostly we repair laptops and tablets. So that brings me here. Maybe someone here can help.

    Customer brought in a CECH-3001B. Lightning killed the power supply. It blew IC230 wide open. Ordered a good used power supply. Unit now powers up and completely boots ok. Problem is, the DVD drive is pretty much non existent. Just dead. I understand the controller for the drive is part of the mainboard in this slim model. It had a disc in it, pushing eject it would beep once and do nothing. As if the drive has no power at all.

    So I took the disc out manually. Tried to insert while it's running, it doesn't even attempt to pull the disc in. No movement of the head at all, at any time. Or the spindle.

    I gotta assume the problem lies on the mainboard. Question is, does anyone have a pinout or maybe some good points to check on the board?? Need to see if the drive is even getting power. No telling with the lightning strike it took.

    This happened to me a few months ago caused all kindas problems ruined my PS3 Fat with CFW it had no video signal, Wii U still can't do HDMI only component and only 480p for some reason, Xbox 360 same thing although I can get 1080p with components, and Xbox One completely died had to buy another one. PS4 was fine somehow.

    Oh and my HDTV died.

    I got everything back other than like I said the Wii U being 480p etc... but I'm not that picky I can live with it, but I wish someone could fix my HDMI on my rgh 360 so I could use the component slot for my PS2.

    Checked over a few things this morning under the scope. Found F7201 is blown. Going to start with that replacement and have another go.

    So ... continually blows F7201 fuse. And in my limited ps3 wisdom, decided to apply some current using my bench supply, and chase down the problem. BD7979EFV blew open around pins 40-42. So I assume that's where the short was, inside that IC.

    Going to order a replacement and give it a go. My question ... I've heard of having to "marry" dvd drives to a playstation. Read very little about it. Know not much about it. Will replacing this particular IC cause me any problem with the unit identifying the drive?? Or is that part of another IC?

    Many thanks ....

    I think that IC controls the motor. So don't think you will need a remarry. The bigger square IC is the one with the marry info I believe.

    In the worst case scenario, would it be possible too remarry it on the 3000 serie?

    Not unless you work for Sony. Anyone else can only remarry the bd drive if on CFW or OFW 3.55 or lower. Which 3k models are not capable of.

    You would need to extract the info from the IC and put it on the new one. With the correct flasher.

    Ok ... update.

    Replaced BD7979EFV. Also replaced F7201. Check for short to ground, all good there.

    Drive now accepts discs and ejects ok. So I am part of the way there. Insert the disc, it spins clockwise for 1 second and then goes into a counter clockwise spin and stays spinning. And that's all it does. No auto launch, which is turned on in settings. And no disc available in the menu to load manually.

    Any ideas from here?

    Any idea what BD9685 is for? Did some googling, but didn't find much.
