i'm a ps2 noob as i'm always been an xbox man but hopefully thats goin to change and i'll have time for both in my life
anyway i've allways fancied giving ps2 chipping a go but didn't want to start on a brand new ps2 and lose all my money so i thought i'd give a second hand one a go, and lucky me i got one off a family friend for nothing!! great....well no not really as its faulty
so i'm hoping that i may be able to fix it and then give moding it a go.
when i got it i was told it was a disc read error and that someone had tried to adjust the laser but no luck.
i opened it up and noticed a cuple of the ribbon cables weren't even connected and thought bargain it might just be that and i could have a working ps2 here....nope
i built it back up and tried it without the top case on with a ps2 original, it might be a disc read error aswel but i notice if you turn the ps2 on or reset it the centre white bezel that the disc runs on just slightly moves as if it wants to turn then nothing?
so the disc isn't even spinning up for the laser to read it in the first place?
is there any checks or anything i can do to remedy this?
please bear with me as like i say i'm a ps2 nob
its a v5 ps2
thanks for your time
