cd not spinnin!?
ok, i posted a couple of days ago about how i pulled my case off and now the ps2 is not working. Well someone suggested i check all the connections..and i did........i pulled em all off and then put it back together (it was really hard to get one of em back in) but anyway, what i noticed is that the cd isnt spinning when its turned on.........it just loads up...like, picks the cd up, but then doesnt spin......what did i do? any suggestions!?
Did you open the DVD/CD drive, I did and broke it. The underside of the tray was forced out by accident and I ended up breaking a tab. So now it won't open and close, it was still on when I was adjusting the laser azimuth which was damnful careless of me.
Still just taking it apart and unscrewing things shouldn't hurt, I'd carefull check if everythings in place if I were you.
Did you take everything apart?
some of the cables to the disk tray require a clip to be snaped down (to do this you must completly take apart the machine)
Is the laser making a scratching noise?
if it is it might be that the laser is attached but not the sled
You say it still loads, does that mean you see the ps2 logo?
If all you did was take it apart then all you should have to do is put it back together! Right?
Easier said then done to PROPERLY put it back together you must take it ALL apart.
When its all apart you can test before you put it back together
Things that can be disconnected (and the machine boots properly) are the fan (but not for long), and the controller port.
The machine will be on its back for this test
