Hello there Guys n Gals, MY SITUATION: I have a Messiah Chipped Silver PS2 with a "SCPH-50004" Model Number all the testing I did is with a Original Game Disk (GTA:VC & MGS3 Mainly). (been using ps2 for about 2 years now with no problems on backed up or original games) The problem i have is when i turned on my PS2 with a game inside the game didn’t load up and made the Disk spinning Noise for about 5 minutes before giving me a greyed Screen with "Disc read error." on it. The night before this happened the PS2 was working perfectly with No Problems, no lag, no freezing or anything. I have opened up my PS2 (Pictures included) and have cleaned the laser lens but it made no difference to anything. I read on a website that there should be a little White Gear just near my laser lens but my PS2 doesn’t have that. Inside of my PS2. http://i168.photobucket.com/albums/u163/Faint282/picture3.jpg http://i168.photobucket.com/albums/u163/Faint282/picture2.jpg PS2 with White gear (Taken from another Guide i was looking at) http://tweak3d.net/articles/ps2repair/6.jpg MY QUESTION: How can I resolve this problem please? or Can some one direct me to guide perhaps designed for my PS2 model Please?
