Having problems realigning laser
Hi guys, new to PS2's, I've got 3 Xbox's and just got a PS2 today with 90 games from someone, I traded 2 xbox games for it. The guy told me that it didn't work before we traded and said the laser needed realigning.
I've followed some tutorials on the internet but can't seem to get it working.
A few of the games work, they seem to be the ones burnt on CD-R's, I'm not too sure though since they are all silver. The DVD's don't seem to work, I already know the PS2's have a problem reading blue discs from other forums I've been reading so obviously they don't work and there's a few of them.
I've got a music CD to play, but it skips alot and can freeze during the track which then makes a very annoying repeating noise.
The same happens when I finally got a DVD working, it kept skipping and freezing every few seconds. I haven't found a place to turn the cog that will get all discs working at the same time, the burnt games on CD-R's seem to work very easily though.
I've been trying to get it working for more then 3 hours, so it's really frustating me. The place I have the cog turned right now is right at the very end (If I turn it any further, the laser drops down again)
Has anyone else had problems realigning the laser? I'm sure the rest of the DVD drive works fine, as I was able to play a few games with no problem. If it's the actual laser that is the problem, would that be expensive to replace and would it be easy to install?
Thanks it advance.
