PS3 Slim Repair

    Hi all, I need some help with my PS3 Slim as it has stopped ejecting disks.

    I took the whole thing apart, including the Blu Ray Drive, and put it back together. The drive will read the discs that I put in, but the only way to get the disc back out is to take the console apart again. When I push the eject button, the software thinks the disc is ejected even though it's not. This means I have to either turn the console off and back on again to get the same disk going, or take the console apart to get the disc out to change it.

    When I took the drive apart a small bit of white plastic fell out. I have no idea where this came from, but I have a feeling it is the cause of the problem.

    I think I have to replace the drive but I'm not sure what drive to buy, or where to buy it. I have the 160gb CECH 3003-A model. If anyone can help me or point me in the right direction I would be very grateful.

    Thanks in advance. :o
