Cannot read PS1 Games??!!
Hello and thank you to everyone who is reading this in attempt to help me!
I have a unmodded v9 ps2. A few months ago, I received the disk read error on my ps2 and just decided to try and fix it last week. I did all the normal things, cleaned laser, adjusted voltage, adjusted laser height, and none of that helped. As I was sadly putting the ps2 back together I noticed something about the ribbon cable that connects the laser to the system board. The very end of it, that connects into the laser assemly, the gold contacts were scratched, ans scratched bad! I ordered the part, and it arrived 2 days ago. I carefully took apart the ps2 and replaced this cable. When I put it back together, I tested GT4, and it read the disk with no problem. I tried putting in a PS1 game, and it gives me a disk read error. I tried the same ps1 game in a buddies ps2 and it worked. I tried 4 to 5 more ps1 games that I had, and none worked. All my PS1 games have the black bottom on the disk. Anyway, can someone please help!?? I need to read ps1 games to use the HD MC trick! Please Help, any advice is much appreciated!!
