Laser problems on V5 PS2
Laser problems on V5 PS2 –
I have a SCPH 30003R PAL PS2 chipped with Messiah v1.0.
I got this PS2 in January 2002 after my V3 PAL Launch PS2 messed up.
Basically over a year later my V5 PS2 is having problems.
The drive makes a LOUD clicking SOUND. This started around 5 days ago and is getting worse.
Sometimes the drive spazzes, especially with CD-Rs, it sounds like its chewing the CD-R. The clicking also happens with DVD-R/DVD+R/DVD+RW but its not as bad.
I know its not the CD/DVD media since they have always worked fine.
How can I fix this problem?
Also my DVD Tray make a noise like its scraping the sides of the case around the DVD tray when ejecting it without a CD/DVD. The sound has been around for a few months.
I've tried to adjust the case ie taking it off and checking if the DVD Tray is making contact with the case or not but I still get the sound.
Any suggestions on how I can fix that also?
Your laser unit is going to heaven this cliking sound is the ps2 retrying the identification of media inserted, try clean and recalibrate the laser unit, if you donÂ´t get any better results, its time to put a new laser unit....
I think there is some charlies tutorial to recalibrate the laser over here... try search "laser calibration"
