One day I was happily playing my PS2, tony hawks underground (a backup). Next morning, woke up, switched it on, waited for it to load - nothing. I tried the original straight afterwards - nothing. Lots of disks later - nothing. I've since left it because I couldn't be assed to figure it out - until now (the force is strong in GTA San Andreas).
My problem is, no matter what disk I put in my PS2, it will not even ATTEMPT to read the disk, it will just sit there.
I'm on the verge of ordering a new laser, but before I do I just wondered if there is anything other than a faulty laser that could be the problem, simply because it just suddenly stopped trying to read disks completely, rather than trying and failing (giving a dirty disk error or whatever). Could it be the power to the laser that has been cut off, preventing it from attempting to read the disk? Or some other disk checking mechanism? Thanks
