PS2 will not read any cds but will read all DVDs
PS2 will not read any cds but will read all DVDs –
I just installed a modbo 4 into my scph-75001 gh-040-52 ps2 and it will no longer read any cds. I can't get it to read PSX original, audio cds or PS2 cds. It reads all dvds fine originals, backups, and movies. The cds did work before installing the chip. I hope someone can help me. The cds still don't work after disabling the chip too.
Replace the laser. It happened to me too.
Clean your laser, this happened to me too. The simple reason for why this happens is it takes a different frequency to read cds then it does to dvds. Here's how to do it:
Open the case up after ejecting the dvd drive. Leave the dvd drive open, or else you wont be able to reach the laser lens. Take a q-tip and dab it in rubbing alcohol. Gently rub it along the lens. Put it back together but dont screw everything in yet. Run a cd and make sure it works. If it doesnt work, try to clean it lightly again. If it still doesn't work, your laser went bad to read cds. Dont try to clean it more then twice in a row.
