Putting Ps2 Back Together And Having Problems, Disc doesn't really spin
Putting Ps2 Back Together And Having Problems, Disc doesn't really spin –
Hey I have a ps2 fat. schp3001 if I'm right it's a v.4 Anyway I took it apart last year because of the dvd eye problems. I replaced the eye with a new one. The eye is giving me problems though because the little clippy thing that holds the ribbon from mother board directly to the laser. So I used some tape on the side that is smooth. It has no wire points that's on the other side. So basically it would hold it in place without interfearing with the connection pins. Anyway I just put the whole ps2 back together and it can boot up and load the ps2 dashboard. The disc tray works to open and close. WHen I boot up the ps2 the laser moves if I slid it out of it's normal position near the part that spins the disc. The eye also moves just as if it was looking for a disc(Not as much as normally only moves if you slide the eye out of it's normal postition.)(Eye doesn't move if a disc in drive) and even does the read light if it tries to read something. Anyway I pop a disc in there and the disc does one revolution and then stops. The ps2 doesn't even recongise it when you go to media. Where it would say like checking or something. I have checked all the wire connections the red yellow white also the 2 ribbins to the dvd drive. All are connect but I'm just puzzeled on this.
The systems were in a box one fully disemabled and othe just top off. They were in the box for a good year I took apart then got busy with stuff and never got around to it. Until now with some free time.
** I had 2 ps2's schp3001 both of them. One maybe v4 and other v5. I"m not sure though.
Anyway what is the reason I took it apart was that one ps2 had the disc drive broken from the magic slide trick. But the card wasn't used a friend used a screwdriver and went to hard and broke the little white tab off. My ps2 eye was messing up and his was fine so I was goin to switch out the eyes. The ribbin output are both similiar not exact like one has a white bay and other has a brown bay. I checked all the wires and what not I don't see any damage to them. Does anyone have any ideas what's wrong and maybe ways to fix it? I will post a pick if the lasers and the expansion port to show you. Thanks a lot -Nick
