    Console turns on but the DVD drive will not spin or accept discs
    Bad cable connection

    If your DVD drive doesn't turn on when the console is started, it could be a connection issue. The DVD drive is connected to the motherboard by a 12-pin power connector and a ZIF data cable. Remove the DVD drive and check both of the connections to the drive. If they are fine, you may also have to access the mother board to check the connections from the cables to the board.
    Bad DVD drive board

    If all of the connections to the DVD drive are secure, then it is possible that the board on the DVD drive has a short in it or a blown surface-mount fuse. Remove the dvd drive and replace it with a new one to see if that works. If it does, you can either replace the entire drive, or try to find a replacement board. Replacing the board will be less expensive, but will require soldering.
    Bad motherboard

    If the cables and the drive are not the problem that cause the DVD drive not to turn on, then it may be a bad motherboard. It is difficult to test this without obtaining a new motherboard or testing your DVD drive on a known working console. If the drive still works on another board, then you will have to replace the motherboard
    This is what I found
