ps2 slim sudden disc read problem, please help
Hi there guys, handy forum youve got going here, this is my first post so i hope you can help me.
I recently purchased a slim ps2 with the matrix infinity chip installed, it has apparently had the laser fix implemented as well (im not quite sure what this fix intails and would be interested if someone could explain) anyhow, all was well the unit was working fine.
Then i was loading a backed up version of god of war which required a dual layer disc to get all the info on, it was a good quality media and i have played the backup previously with no problems, As it was loading the playstation crashed and the screen went black, i couldnt turn the unit off even after the disc was removed so i was forced to pull the power out of the back.
When i turned the unit back on it could no longer read any discs, ive tried dvd, backups, origionals, music cd's but no luck, you can hear the laser spinning up and a clicking sound as if its trying to find the start of the disc but cant.
You can still access the ps2 dashboard fine and when you try to browse the media it trys to see it and then come up with the message cant read media. or no data
I cant imagine its a dirty laser or a problem with gears as it was working fine untill the crash.
Maybe ive blown the laser? maybe its worse has anyone got any advise for me before i rip out the laser unit and replace it.:cry: :cry:
I would be eternally gratfull for any advise
