View Full Version : Slimline PS2 - is it the laser?

04-01-2007, 10:28 PM

i chipped my first slimline ps2 just before christmas,
it worked sweet until yesterday,
now...i get nothing to play...

the laser seems to be fine ie, it bops & you can see the red laser light...
but the spindle fails to move at all....the game just stays still,

i've chipped tons of other older style ps2's & am good with an iron,
so..all the usual checks have been made,

is the laser dead??
one last thing....i used a duo3 chip ..

any help would be great

i had same thing hapened on 3 ps2 and it took me well long time to find its not laser or motor they have an very small cpu fuse on board which goes check on board with meter you will find it it wil be near where the motor ribbon goes.
