Alright, so I desoldered my chip from the ps2 that had the no blue light thing. No blown BA(v4ps2), it worked perfect.. So i resolder it extra careful, checked everything i possibly could with a multimeter(resistance) and everyhting checked out.. Finally, I would be able to take my ps2 on the road without fear of scratching my originals..
But, when i hooked it up and started it, Blue light came on, but the laser never engaged, i dont tihnk ... It just makes a high pitches spinning noise, like it's spinning the disk at mach3... no tray eject, no video.. Any ideas?
EDIT: I am a retard. I never tested it on a tv after desoldering the first time, just assumed that since everything sounded fine it was back to normal... Now it sounds normal, but no video/audio(read my next post)

Maybe a short on CD/DVD controller lines or the bios. If you keep running it with the drive spinning that fast you will blow the BA/LA chip
Yeah, I desoldered again and cleaned a little and now i have a different problem... No more spinning noise, and the tray does eject now, but still no video/sound and i am pretty sure the laser is not engaging, as i hear no spinnning noise whatsoever now... sorry to be such a nusiance, but any ideas?
Ok, so i desoldered again, and it works like a charm(with tray opening trouble, but it was dropped over 2 years ago and has lived with a busted front and gimpy tray for sometime, and this was no worse than before)
Soldered everyhting back, and nothing happens... I'm going to disconnect the power and check, and if still no go, desolder all the wires from the chip, and then if it works it should rule out all chances of shorts, right?
Sometimes you can short something and the system will still turn on but it won't boot the games. There are lots of possibility for mistakes when you have such a wide room for errors.
