The crank up PS2 (motor problem)
I'm installing a Magic V in a PS2 v9.. I did the romeo mod (unsuccessful at first, but now working just fine). Now I get a problem where the drive motor will not spin unless I immediately get it up to speed using my finger as soon as the drive closes. It will spin on it's own momentarily while trying to read data, slow down, speed up, and then stop. Never reaching full speed. If I don't jump start the motor, nothing happens. I've checked the pins on the ribbon cable, and they're all good. Could this have been a result from the previously faulty romeo mod? The laser appears to be working fine. does the LA also control that motor, or is that the BA?
