Question about Sony PlayStation 2 (PS2) Console
Hi I had this thing apart about a week ago and it seemed to do well to do it but now it refuses to do anything I want it to do. PSone games are a no go same with audio cds no go. I found if I cleaned under the lens I clean the fixed lens too. and now I don't see my lens moving up and down the track like it should anymore. Please help me figure out what I did wrong? I also have a slim PS2 scph 70011 cleaned its laser but seemed no good. Thanks
If your lens is not moving up and down the track at all even in bootup then sounds like your motor is fried. What i'm referring to is this:
You can find similar parts like this .::HERE::.
To verify this, open your dvdrom tray. Power off the PS2 via the swtich on the back of the PS2 (thus leaving the dvdrom tray open) Tare down your PS2 and remove the four screws on the top of your DVD-ROM unit (if this is a fat model, if it's a slimline model you'll have to remove that whole platic piece covering the unit itself) You may have to do some research on this next part (via google) but remove your DVD-ROM tray so you can see the guts of the DVD-ROM. Then power on your PS2. And ask yourself the following questions as you observe.
1.) Does the lens move at all even right after bootup?
2.) Is the siver bar part of the motor(pictured above) turning at all to make it move?
If it doesn't turn at all then there is your problem. If it does turn, and the lens doesn't move at all then the ribbon cable that connects the lens to the board maybe damaged or the lens itself is damaged.
Hope that helps
