My attempt to do MC exploit (and ruin a PS2 in the process)
The console is still salvageable. I say find another ribbon cable and try again. Or get an install from one of the volunteers and use HDD.

I have a V7 with semi dead laser for sale if you like.. PM me..
Hey TehJawknee - yeah I know that it salvageable (have sent a PM to Spud hoping he can help me out). If I can get FMCB on the MC then I will mess around with stuff via a USB memory stick. The ribbon that was kinked/broken was the tiny one on the underside of the laser asembly (has a small chip on it) so not sure that could be replaced or fixed.
Suppose worst case is I could try for another laser asembly but for the cost just better off getting another 2nd hand unit. Depends how much I want to pursue it (was only something to mess around with).
Semi dead djflex? What's semi dead? edit - OK so maybe thats just your sig - sorry I thought it was an offer of help
Thanks but you are a long way from me (I'm in Oz).
LOL, it's ok... I can send to OZ as well...
Wow i just had the same problem yesterday, i also tried forcing it in out of rage since i couldnt hear the click when i was moving my slide card to the left. My ps2 wouldnt put its drive out anymore so the game was stuck with the dvd drive in there. I shook my ps2 a little (much). And i pressed eject button and it came out, got an e-mail from a friend, telling me i should get fmcb installed by one of the members here :P. Thank god i didnt break my lens :-(, i hope it will turn out good for you in the end (Y)
