    I'm not sure you can replace the bluray drive on the PS3. I think you can only replace the hard drive. You would probably have to send it in to get repaired.

    If there is any potential for this you would probably see it on the PS3 boards on the PlayStation site.

    Re: PS3 bluray drive replacement

    you can replace the drives, looks like a pretty easy process actually. just need a drive. i'll most likely try taking it apart first and clean the lens and if that doesn't work i'll just send it in.

    and not to Sony.
