here is my problem.
gamecubesuxs installed ghost 2 v1 (very nicely done; thank you ); however, i let my cousin clean the lens with gasoline & killed the laser (hd-7)completely.
fortunately, my friend gave me a ebgame refurbished unit with a good laser. when i installed the whole laser assembly to the gamecubsuxs modded v5 unit, it did not read any disk.
i adjusted the height with the white cog, but did not help, and when i insert the disk, it is making tic-tic & tac-tac sounds; i think the laser is hitting the spindle motor.
because i cannot load the lens changer, now, i am stuck...of course, i can send it back to gamecubesuxs for the repair which is probably the right thing to do, but it takes 4 business days via fedex ground (not to mention all the hassles of packing & sending/receiving), so i am looking for quick solution over this weekends (i hope i won't destroy the ps2 completely)
