alrite, after much deciding, i finally got a magic V chip for my v10 ps2. works great and everything. my prob is with the cd tray. this prob started before i got the chip, so i know thats not the prob. and i didnt want to open up my ps2 before cuz of the warrenty sticker to check the tray. but since i got a chip installed now (by someone else), i figured i might as well try to fix this. my prob is when i go to load in a disk, i press the eject button, put in the disk, and press the power button to reset it. like 50% of the time, the disk tray will go in properly and the other 50% it will act as if it was jammed, like kinda stutter, then just stay open. sometimes it will even stutter for like 3 secs, then go back in really fast.
im kinda opposed to opening my ps2 cuz well, im not entirely comfortable opening up my ps2, but if i have to i will. i've done it before. but is this problem more likely a hardware issue than an electrical? i just want to know before i go diving in blind. sometimes it will go in properly, and other times it will not, as if its sticky or something. everything else works fine. games boot perfectly. just this minor tray prob. if i presss the eject button, put the disk in, and press the eject button again and boot that way, the tray goes in smoothly. if i press the eject button, put in disk, and press the reset button, sometimes it jams and soemtimes it doesnt. any advice? oh yeah, the tray opens perfectly and smoothly. its when its closing thats teh prob
