    I modded my V7 ps2 a while ago. It was working intermittently until last week it stopped loading dvd-r backups all together. I checked all connections to the best of my abilities and decided it was best to de-mod my ps2.

    One of the reasons I wanted to de-mod, was because the condition got worse by not even spinning the dvd drive on boot up. I removed all connections and cleaned up solder points.

    The dvd drive still wont respond. I have noticed that the ribbon cable that connects to the on/off/eject buttons has a break in one of the wires that makes the button only work if it is in the right position.

    Does anyone have any experience with this one? I'm at a loss.

    Thanks,
    JT

    Thanks Cryptix, I just bought one on ebay for $8. I hope it will do the trick.
