Hi, I have a couple of broken slim PS2 that I bought over the years and never fixed.
Now, most of these have DVD drive related problems and when I mix and DVD drives around, I have working lenses, I now now how many DVD lens I have to purchase.
However, I stay in South Africa and we use PAL and I have one JAP NTSC version and all difference with it's DVD drive is the position of one cable.
When I tried to replace the NTSC DVD lens (TDP-182W) with a working PAL version (SPU3170), it does not run. It doesn't even seem that it reads the DVD drive.
Now, what I would like to find out, before I purchase a NTSC lens, is there something else I could try that can be faulty?
