Question about Sony PlayStation 2 (PS2) Console
Hello im having some problems with my old style ps2 (not slim). When I put in a silver backed game the game takes a minute or two, to start spinning and then it reads the game. But if I put in a blue back game it will not spin no matter how long I wait, at most I get a quarter turn.
i have taken it Completely apart, I put in an entirely different disk drive that I know works in my good ps2. I then recalibrated the laser. I took everything apart right down to the motherboard cleaned everything, put in new fan new switch (not that, that would help) checked all connections of the ribbons and I still get the exact same problem. works for silver backed games after couple minutes no other games.
Therefore I know the laser or motor are not the problem. I was thinking maybe fuse but which one and where?
What could the problem be and how do I check it or fix it?
Thank You Very Much
If it reads the silver ones it should read the other i would have said change the laser but as you have done this i could be that it has over heated and their is no way of curring this have you tried playing the blue ones on another ps2 if this is not the problem then their is nothing you can do other than sell yours for spares or buy a broken one you can get them off ebay cheap as you no your laser works usually the one people sell that dont work is the laser so you could put the laser into the one you buy then you should have no probs sorry this isnt nothing else you can do

First of all the new laser lens will not allow your Slim to read NTSC UC games if you have a PAL european Console.
There is no reason the New laser should have not read the disc unless it Came to you damaged. It sounds like you know how to replace a laser.
