Rear sensor soldering –
Long story short, I put super glue in the rear sensor and the PS2 wouldn't start. I read up some stuff online and attempted to solder the contacts after removing the sensor completely. I put a bead of solder that covered all four contacts, but that didn't work and disk wasn't spinning. I removed the bead and with it came off the old solder from the contacts. So now I just don't know what to do. And it all looks messed up now. Here's a pic of what it looks like now (I know, I could have tried to do a cleaner job...)
Any help is appreciated!
It's destroyed beyond repair now.
That's what I was dreading... So technically I could just toss out the console? There isn't any way to induce disk spinning without the rear sensor, is there?
