can ps2 function w/o dvd player?
just like the title say's......
not sure what version I have but the dvd tray and drive is not functioning,
its either got no power or its broken, laser seems to be intact, doesn't looked
burned out. I get power and the tv screen has a slight flicker when power is turned on, seems like it wants to start but then it stays black and has no sound.
the reset/eject button works partway, the reset (red/green) button only
lights up the blue eject doesn't. I read somewhere that the cable can be
easily damaged or the switch itself is bad.
my question is... can the system function w/o the dvd being powered on?
should I be able to see the ps2 logo splash screen even though the dvd isn't
working? I'm trying to isolate the problem before I start throwing parts at it.
If I only need new reset cable and switch, that would be great if its the motherboard or fuses then I'm going to have to learn how to check fuses.
need some input. thanks.
