PS2 took a dump.... –
I have a modded (matrix infinity) slimline 7500 series. I was having lots of problems reading my backups, and later my original discs. When I cracked the case, I checked to see how the laser was behaving. It was working, but it looked as though It was having problems reading. Like the last time I ran into problems, I proceeded to swap out the ribbon cable (for a cheap starting point). After swapping the cable out, I found the ps2 laser, spin motor, as well as worm gear motor to b e unresponsive. I then tried to swap back the original cable and found the same result. I even swapped out the laser with an extra I bought a few years before. Still no dice.... The only action I get is the worm-gear feels like it is under tension, and will sporadically spin.
Any ideas on what might be wrong at this point?
Thanks in advance!
