    I need to buy a KES-400A laser, eBay has them for ~$55. Any other place to buy them or is eBay the way to go?

    This laser lights up violet when the disc is placed in, and disc does not spin at all. Does not any type of disc, it stopped working when it updated to 3.10. Tried cleaning it and the option 3 in the recovery menu thing. Is it the laser? any other things to try?

    Edit: DX has them for 47.34. But I $8 more on eBay from USA... mind as well get it quicker.
    Edit 2: bought one off eBay.
