Question about using a slide tool
Question about using a slide tool –
I planned on installing Free McBoot today and made a slide tool out of an old ID card. I took the front of the CD tray off and attempted to find the pin with my card but could feel no such thing. I looked in there as best I could and the only white thing I could see was on the far right. From what I've read, that's not what I'm looking for.
Do some Fat PS2s simply not have that pin?

It's not worth damaging your PS2, just have one of us installers, install FMCB for you.. All your out is a few bucks in shipping..

Well it's an old PS2, so if I screw it up it's no big deal. A friend used the slide tool on his once before with no problems. I know that that doesn't guarantee the safety of mine but like I said, it's expendable.
LOL, it's cool.. Do you know what Version of PS2 it is? The xxxxxx number on the back..
Well that's the same model I have, from if I can recall right, you are able to do a slide trick..
But I have idea if you would like.. I could sell you a pre-modded MC, if you like... PM me if your interested..
I guarantee, the MC, I sell is cheaper, than anywhere on the internet, and I will NOT charge for the FMCB..
Nah... What's the point in paying for something that's free? And I know that this model can be modded, so that would just be a waste of money.
I know FMCB is free, I have done the install for hundreds of people worldwide, and have never charged them for the install.
I have sold around 50 MC. Ranging in all sizes.
And how would it be a waste of money, I'd sell you an Original Sony 8MB MC, or even a 16MB Max MC, with FMCB. All I charge is the price of the MC...
First off, if I sounded rude earlier, I apologize, I didn't mean to be. Secondly, I feel that it would be a waste of money because I just purchased a couple of memory cards from someone, and I know that I can do this myself.
Thirdly, I'd appreciate some ideas being thrown my way at a new problem. Earlier I saw something white on the right side of the tray. I thought that might have been the pin but it wasn't in the spot that I had heard it was so I didn't think that was it (note: I hadn't even begun messing with the slide tool at this point, all I had done was plug my PS2 up).
I put in a game, tried to close the tray, and it stuck. So I disassembled the PS2 and found that that white thing I saw WAS the pin I was looking for. I have no idea how it got over to where it was. I slid it back in the correct play, put the tray back on, reassembled the system and.... now it doesn't even get power. I have no idea why this would be. The only things I touched were the disc tray and the pin, so I don't believe it is even possible for me to have screwed something up that would affect the power.
Does anyone have any ideas why a PS2 would suddenly stop getting power?
OK, you had the tray jam on you,?
How long did you let it run and did you try and pull it back open?
If the tray motor was jammed, for more than a few seconds it could have blown a fuse inside the PS2.
Might want to check the internal fuses..
