Oh man, I am a dufus!
Ok, so what happened, I first did not connect the laser ribbon cable correctly, then I thought it was correct so I then adjusted the dvd Pot without a multimeter. So then It did not work at all, see before then, I would go into dvd mode if I held square, now it does not.
So then I took it apart after reading some tutorials about laser adjustment, and my DVD pot was adjusted to 420ohms! So I set it back to 720 and ti still didnt work.
So I am sure the laser is fried. But would a fried laser still read cd's.
Yeah so I am real dumb. I am kicking myself now. I have to buy a new laser arg.
Ok, so I took a laser from my friends Ps2, a SCPH 30001 R, and put it in my ps2, Now it reads both Original DVD games and Original CD games. But not CD backups? Should I adjust my cd laser pot?
All games can be loaded at the brewser and say Ps2 disc.
Also, I have burned games on Memorex and Hp cd's, My games on Memorex cd's with a metalic top dont load up at all, But my games on Memorex CD-r's with a white top load to the Playstation 2 Logo then go to the red screen saying insert a ps2 disc.
And one of my games on a White toped memorex loads up completely.
So I am almost sure this is a problem with POT power, I am just checking here so I don't break anything again.
what you should do is try different media. not every ps2 likes the same media.
