ok first off i've been having way to many problems with the ps2. My first ps2 was a v3 and it was about 2 years old. I got a duo v2 SE modchip installed in it and it played backups fine until a week later it didn't read any games and when you turn it on, the ps2 would ask what language to put and it resets all of the configuration. so i sent it back to person who installed the modchip and he gave me a new v4 ps2 with the same modchip installed. I used memorex dvd-rs for my backups and i thought they were good media cause they played perfectly, but then a month later it stopped reading dvd games, I guess memorex was bad media. I tried fixing the problem myself my cleaning the lens, adjusting it etc, but it didn't do anything and I ended up pinching the wires for the fan and now that doesn't work. so, now i use a large fan to cool my ps2, and I decided I would play cd based games until the laser was dead and needed to be replaced. Well just yesterday the discs weren't spinning anymore and the ps2 wouldn't show anything on the tv when i turned it on. Is this because of my laser being dead? Is it fixible by replacing a new laser or should i just get a new ps2?
