The PS3 laser is an integral part of the Playstation 3 games console, the console was released in Japan on the 11th November 2006 and has now sold millions of units worldwide, these first consoles were released with a KES 400A PS3 Laser.
The console included a new technology, the PS3 Blu Ray Laser. This new Blu Ray laser technology allows for features that surpass the current DVD technology, the main reason for this is because Blu Ray disks can hold much more data than conventional DVD’s and this is because of the shorter wave length of the Blu Ray laser compared with Red type lasers.
Try using a PS3 Laser lens cleaning disc before you
dismantle your console and take your laser out.
