I've installed a flip top on my V7 PS2 and everything works fine. My PS2 reads games fine and backups work with swap magic. The only thing is the loud noise from the white spinner on the lid. Putting some weight down on it stops the noise, but that probably isn't good for it. I've read from other posts that making the screws loose on the bottom of the PS2 usually fixes it. Has this worked for anyone? How far did you have to loosen the screw before the noise went away (or reduced significantly)? Also, does this noise signify damage (to the laser, cd tray, etc.), or is it just a harmless nuisance?
