I've tried the steps mentioned above to no avail. The problem persist. Anything else i can do besides purchasing another console? Sentimental value.Thank you.

What I'm gonna try and do is take a laser from a PC DVD burner tray and see if I reads things. It's a long shot but you can't break what's already broken ehh. I'll let you know what happens. And if it works I will write the proper tutorial for it:)
