I was playing GTA: Vice City the other night and i was just cruising around on the motorbike and then all the textures went missing and the loading screen came up and i could hear the laser moving but with some horrible sounds (well horrible if you love your PS2 as much as I do :P). And it's not the clicking sound of it not picking up.
Upon inspection I found that the laser motor keeps on moving the laser forward (towards the middle area of the disc) and although it has reached the end of the track, it keeps on pushing it, thus the terrible noises.
I have thoroughly inspected the unit and i do not believe the problem lies within any of the cables (though i could be wrong). Maybe one of the fuses blew?
Please Advise! my college semester has just ended and my baby isn't working!!! ARRRGHHH!! the frustration! .
