Laser Problems –
Alright, this is what happened, my old laser was in cahoots (not booting DVD's) so I decided to purchase a new one. So I pulled apart the ol' ps2 and replaced the laser. Now, with the new one, it boots DVDs but it seems to take a long time to recognise anything. If there is a CD or DVD in there and I boot the ps2 from standby, it will first go into the menu, then after awhile (35-40 secs) it will boot normally. WTF is going on here. I'm pretty sure the laser was pulled out of a brand new V7 or something. (Bought from woore) Anyway, any help would be... ummm... helpful.
