    I have not changed out a BluRay drive in a long time. (2 years)
    Please help me out if I am missing something.

    http://www.ebay.com/itm/Complete-Bl...101?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item4d03b9a605

    That is what I plan on buying
    The back of the PS3 I am repairing says MODEL NO : CECHK01
    and is the 80GB model.
    Eject works. Disc goes in fine. Nothing spins and nothing is detected.

    My client agreed to replace the entire drive instead of just the laser- now I need to make sure I am buying the right drive.

    Seems the good one yep.
    Be sure to carefully lift the logicboard out of the old BD drive.

    Ugh... (''.")
    I might have to look into this. I do not remember doing this on other PS3s...
    It is an original btw.

    Make sure the system in question is on a CFW or something, as you need to remarry the BD drive to the PS3. Alternatively, you could recycle the logic board from your old BD drive :P
