    I feel a little piece of me died.

    It just stopped reading discs, so I cracked her open (she's beautiful inside and out) and tried to clean her up. Now if that worked and I don't (didn't) break anything, it should be good to go.

    If not, I'm not sure where I stand. I didn't exactly expect this.

    It's the laser TJ. You need to take out the eye and find out what the part # is on it. You can order a new one and replace it yourself. I did that before trading in my old console for a slim.

    That sounds like a pain in the ass. Might as well buy a new one.

    If i buy a new one and just replace the new hard drive with my old one, will it just work as if it were this PS3?

    FTR, it's not saying disc read error. The game just doesn't pop up and it semi ejects and pulls it back in.

    You cannot swap hard drives between PS3s, they are encrypted to the system. Since the old one still boots up and everything you can use the data transfer utility to transfer everything from the old system to a new one.
