One for the pro's
has anyone run into this??
Turned on PS2 with Magic 3.1 (been working for a month)
The cd didnt boot .. so .. pressed eject and tray came out slow and jerky.. Turned power off .. waited a few seconds .. turned power on.
Tray goes in and out normal .. but not reading disks !!
Open PS2 and diagnose problem .. after checking everywhere for shorts and anything else possible .. I open the cdrom drive, turned it on and it did the normal short spin and blink on the laser.
BUT .. when I look closer at the short burst on the laser .. the laser is not focusing !! .. I then look really close at the laser and I press down on it with my screwdriver and it is stuck !
Somehow the laser got hot enuf to melt into the dust cover and get stuck !!
I removed the dust cover .. laser works perfect!! .. trim off the melted plastic and reassemble .. everything back to normal !!!!
WOW .. anybody ever here of this? .. or a possible cause ??
