Will it work without a blu-ray drive?

A friend has a console which was broken due to bad soldering on the chips and was stored somewhere.

Then a bright fellow decided he needed the motors on the bluray drive and has thrown everything else on the trash.

Now I think I've made the console bask to working shape, but since I have no drive, I can't figure out if it needs the drive to really work.

It currently powers up and down as it should, but I get no video at all.

If you could test on yours, just disconnect the flat cable and the white power cable. Let me know if you get image.

You should get an image. Try a different video cable, also attaching a controller to it. What ever you do don't let it update like that.

As much as I apreciate all answers so far, no one has done what I humble asked for.

So, until someone tries it, I won't validate any answer.

Luis Correia, I do not think that this is a humble request. Nobody is going to tear their console apart and disconnect a cable, to answer your question. The goal on here is to assist others, not to get validated answers, so you are not harming anyone by not validating. I do wish you the best of luck.

I have a ps3 that my dickhead brother had decided to throw onto the tile floor everything but the blue ray drive works I have removed the blue ray drive and can still use everything but the discs

I know it's been like 5 year but I tried it now, it will turn on and all but if have multiman or webman (to play your backups) it will just freeze and show you a black screen. Anything else seems to work

Luis,

I don't have a console to test with myself, but I searched around the net and the consensus is that the PS3 will work without the BDR installed. You do however need to have the driver board installed.

Yes, I am now aware that the console must be 'married' with its blu-ray drive.

But I still want to know if it produces any image without it connected.

As simple as that!

Wish I could help, but mine doesn't even power up or down. Have you tried connecting the RCA cables and booting in Safe Mode? That would tell you if the video is coming through your video cable or not.

Have two ps3's..one up on the repair agenda, so thought why not. It works without a blue ray drive, video 'n all.

But if you want to fix the problem of not having a blue ray drive, visit ebay for some cheap replacements.

Might add also, if you press and hold the power on button untill you hear a second beep it should search for alternative videosource, might be why you're not getting any video at all.

Thank you David.

With your feedback, I can now continue to search for the root cause of the problem, as the bluray drive not existing is not a problem.

Hi I too have this problem. In my case wanted to make a small cluster and shockingly this one is linux capable. Fortunately the original owner broke it just before the new fw came out so may try it with just pcb connected to see what it does.
