PS2 V500010 Replacement Case
PS2 V500010 Replacement Case –
Alright here goes,
I was moving my entertainment center which consists of a dresser with a TV on it when the TV fell and landed on my brothers PS2 and cracked the case. The system still works great, infact better than the day he got it because i think i knocked the laser back in place. I took the broken case from his PS2 and replaced it with mine as I am still waiting for the laser assembly for it. I took some ductape and tapped it from the inside and you can barely tell there is a crack it in, but it is eating away at me. I have searched all over the internet and all I can find it top load cases and I dont want one of them. If anyone knows a website where I can order a new case and has a walkthrough one how to replace it (The top part was easy, I just dont know If i can do the rest) that would be great.
The biggest kick in the arse is I am so careful with my systems. Well i guess crap happens.
Ok my brothers system worked great most of the night and I was playing RE4 on it for about 3 hours and shut it off. I went back about an hour ago and tried to play it and the disk try popped out and then I when I tried to put it back in, it gets about halfway and stops and the system goes into standby. I turned the system back on and slowly forced the drive closed and now when I turn it on, it goes to but up for about 10 seconds then back into stand by. Not when i took the system apart I didnt tuch anything under the top section of the case. Also any shifts in the laser housing i corrected with my uncle who worked with radar units in the military and we used all the electronic tools to reset the laser housing, still no go. I can get the disk top pop if I lay the system in the horizontal possition and lean in up on a 45 degree angle. Any ideas?

Reason: New Info
Yet another update
I got a chance this morning to take the system apart and take a look at the inards. On the controller and memery card port hub there is a small metal sheild with about 8 prongs on it. When ever I would touch this sheild the MOBO would short and the system would turn itself off. Obviosly this is some king of safty feature so you dont fry the fuses on the MOBO. I took the shield off and now my system boots fine and my controller and memory cards work now as even before this mishap the system would not read my controller or memory card sometimes. The only problem that I can see is the system takes a long time to save data to the card. Also by removing this sheild the disk try pops out all the way with no problems. I guess now I am going to have to get the controller ports replaced. Does anyone have a picture walkthrough for this?
