Tray won't open. Damaged component?
When I finally fitted M2 succesfully I got a tray problem. The tray won't open When I press the eject button it flashes for few seconds but tray won't come out. It tries to read the CD however.
I installed an M2 chip and tested working fine including the tray. Then I had to open the case to check something. I attached all the data cables etc and tested one last time. When I first hit the eject button. It spitted out the tray like 10x faster. I knew that something was wrong.
I am pretty sure what went wrong. I checked the cd data cable (smaller ribbon cable - on the top). The last time I attached it on the board I must have bended one of the wires onto other two and shortcut it. Bummer. I corrected it but still no go.
That explains cd tray opened like crazy the first time and stopped working afterwards. I must have burned or did some damage to a component.
I tried the cd drive on another ps2 and cd drive is good. Must be a component on the board. I checked all the fuses that I could find on the board (v1) and they are all good.
What should I do? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks
