I may not be the laser asembly or anything you described because absolutely nothing happened when you put a disc in. I may be a little switch at the very front of the drive right at the bottom right (near the power button) that may be damged or not being pressed by an piece of plastic on the same place on the lid. That switch recognises if the lid is closed or not so it know when to stop or start a disc. Try closing the lid harder or pushing more on that switch. hope that helps!
Dave, Holding the motor spindle / laser assembly in a position where the white ribben plug in receptacle is facing in an upward position, look down to the lower left hand corner of the print board just under the plug in. You will see a small blob of solder bridging two contact points. Remove this solder bridge. I have found two new Denon assemblys with this problem.........*****
The optics assembly is shipped with a short across the laser to prevent static damage during shipping or installation. Make sure that you have opened up this short or the unit will appear like the optics are bad. The CD won't spin up unless a disc is detected which requires the laser to work.
It sounds like the laser assembly has become faulty, the clicking you hear may be the sled mechanism trying to move and put the laser into place so that it can read the game, or could be the spindle motor trying to spin the disc for the laser to read it. My recommendation is to replace the whole laser assembly, which includes the sled mechanism as well as the spindle motor and laser. Good Luck.
Laser spindle motor. Make sure to get one with the same length shaft - will cost $3 or $4 max and a bit of soldering after removing the drive unit.Or if you can't find one, a new complete laser assembly will have a new spindle motor already fitted - price depends on model of laser.
I experienced the same dreaded H03 error code recently. The fix was simple:
Open the DVD lid. In the center is the black plastic spindle. To the right of the spindle is the laser reader which slides from side to side.
When my player was in error mode, the laser reader was stuck in the far right position on the track. To fix the problem, gently, but firmly push the laser reader to the right until it clicks in to proper position. For mine, I pushed it to the right about an eighth of an inch before it clicked.
Insert a disc, and turn the player on. This should fix the problem, at least it did with mine.
did you try putting the laser reader in your origional lazers place? you might have forgotten a connection, but other than that, im not shure why that would happen unless you broke the connector, or the connector somehow comes undone after you close the ps2 back up. also, have you tried it when you have a cd in it with the safety mechanisms overrided? it should rest in the full out position when you turn it off while a cd is playing in the last track. and just to clarify, is the spindle the linear actuator that moves the lazer head or the thing that turns the cd?
