Hello there fellas of the PSX-Scene community!
I would like some support on a technical issue that occured while i was trying to make my old fat PS2 3001 read Cd's again.
I opened it, cleaned every possible dust, clean the Laser with rubber alcohool, also the Spinner (i that what they call it? Sorry for my English ... i'm from Greece you see).
Apparently something was done.
My "Ico" would run in approximately 2 minutes after it was insterted into the System but still i was not satisifed.
At least it wasn't a Laser issue.
The problem was that the "Spinner" would not spin at all after i had inserted the DVD-Rom or make a little spin and then stop only to start the game 2 minutes later.
Anyway about that, i have discovered that adjusting the screws to the "Iron Levers" that the Laser confides on them should make the spinner actually Spin.
But that's not the problem
After a Test, while the Disc Tray was open, it suddenly got stuck, and the Blue Indicator (below the Green-Red Power Button) ceased to function!
I had to close the console from the back, remove the Disc Tray by removing the screws that support it and move it back again only to found that the problem still remained.
Nothing on my TV, the Blue Indicator doesn't work therefore i can't use the Disc Tray
To be honest i adjusted kinda the White Roller thingy above the Expansion Bay's removable plate but i don't think that's what caused the problem.
I also removed a couple of times before and after the Laser support but i put it back together proppebly with the tape correctly inserted to it.
If someone's so good at those things, or someone has at least an idea it would be trully great to Post here
My brother has the PS2slim (wich is awesome), i have an XBOX360 but untill i get my hands on a PS3 80 GB i HAVE to make this old fella running again!
Thank you in advance guys!
