rare problem when inserting discs

hello folks, I have a problem, in my console when I insert a game only the laser turns on but the motor that makes the disc move does not rotate, what I did is to put the ribbon cable that goes under the motor to the other side and when putting a disc now if it rotates, but it changes speed so it never reads the game. I saw the ribbon cable and you see a separation in the contacts, as if it had broken, the problem is only the 9-pin ribbon cable and the rest is fine ?? sorry for my bad English, is that I do not speak English, thanks in advance!

EDIT: Here are some vídeo footage about my problem

Try to get a new ribbon cable and replace the cable. u can probably find one online somewhere, shouldn’t be too expensive

I'll do it as soon as I can, plus I forgot to say that the lidsensor ribbon cable was also broken so, to do the test I pulled the cable from the power button and inserted it into the lidsensor, thanks for answering since I started with the intrigue that the logic board had been damaged but I corroborated that theory since I have some demos on the HDD and if they work, I also thought that the disk engine was damaged, which would be strange since I rarely played on the ps3, and when I was going to start playing more often since I got the saints row 3 and that problem occurred, if the problem is solved, I'll give you the points !, if not, I will notice anything in case someone will have this problem


Hi dude, look at this, its my problem
