Tweaking a PS2 Laser
« on: January 29, 2009, 08:53:09 AM »
Hey all, my PS2 reads discs only about 2% of the time. I put in a game, nogo. Before I would reboot a few times or turn the ps2 so that it would be standing vertical and the game would read. Now it hardly ever reads no matter what I do. I figured the laser is going. I bought the PS2 used from a friend who has having the same problem but on a smaller scale. I cracked open the PS2 and cleaned the laser and the little rubber thing that grips the CD and the PS2 would boot everytime, even his most scratched game that refused to boot at all before I cleaned the ps2. Is it possible to just change the little resistor screw or something so taht I could strengthen the PS2 laser for some successful reads?
