drive swap help
my v6 messiah chipped ps2 stopped reading games (gradually) so i opened it up and found the problem was not the laser but the little plastic laser guide arm which had worn out.
i thought i quick fix would be to replace the entire drive with one from a v7 machine, but v7 drive didn't work in v6 where it should have especially since v6 drive worked in v7 machine.
when i say didn't work i mean it does nothing after the laser moves forward in the beginnig, no disc spin nothing, i checked the ribbons and they look ok.
i put the v6 drive back into the v6 machine and same prob, no disc spin just the settings screen that u get on a new machine.
so i knackered it more than it already was, if i can get it to accept either drive then i can avoid having to install chip in the v7,
any ideas on the problem?
