The BluRay drive went dead and I replaced it twice with new ones, and there is still no power getting to it. I changed the ribbons (cables?) twice. The PS3 starts up and I can play downloaded games. Only the BluRay drive doesn't get power.

It's a PS3 Slim.

    @DrFish I think the PS3 qualifies as game-specific hardware. – TZHX Mar 15 '15 at 16:04

    @DrFish SuperUser specifically forbid gaming specific hardware, including consoles. – Studoku Mar 15 '15 at 23:26
  • Well, good to know then. I retracted my close vote and edited the question to be more readable. – DrFish Mar 16 '15 at 9:37
