Did laser adjustment, now disk wont spin
Have a earlier model fat ps2. Had disk read errors most of the time when you tried to load a game. So I first take it apart and clean the lens, it didn't have much effect on it. So I lowered the resistance on the DVD POT from 1070 ohms to 970 ohms, I heard 950 was the optimum level, so I got it close. While I had it apart I also put a magnet on the white plastic piece that goes over the top of the disk, to make it hold the disk more secure. Then removed the magnet after I was done tweaking the laser.
I put it all back together, and first off the tray wouldn't eject right so I aligned everything again to get it in the right tracks. Now after the tray is working properly, it wont spin the disk up. It may give it a small burst but that's it, and then it doesn't act like there's a disk in there.
So my question is, Is there anything else that could be out of alignment from pulling the lens out, that would make the disk motor not spin up? Or did I go too high with the adjustment and fry the thing? I'm going to try and raise the ohms a little more to see if that changes anything.
Just looking for a little advice as to what else I could do to make it spin the disk up again. :(
