PS4 still not working after replacing optical drive
Last week my ps4 started showing a message "unrecognized disc". After inserting a disc, the disc slides in, makes a little laser scratching noise, but it doesn't load.
On the top right corner of the tv I notice an image of a disc spinning. The disc tries to eject itself but doesn't and continues a 2nd time until the unrecognized disc message appears in a black box with a question mark in it.
I replaced the optical drive with a used one I purchased from eBay, but it sounded worse and didn't fix the problem. Maybe it was defective item, I'm planning on returning it for a refund.
My question is what should I do? Try buying another optical drive or send in the ps4 for service since my warranty is expired (The cost is $150). Also could it be something else other than the optical drive?
