    I have a version 4 PS2 and I opened it so that I can put in a new reset/eject ribbon. I tried my PS2 then and it wont boot any games and it gets stuck at the browser screen. I can move up or down or anything. What could be the problem? Thanks for the help.

    does it say "disk read error" when you put in a game?

    ok i got it to get past the browser screen. And it says " Disk Read Error". So now im going to open the PS2 and clean the white laser gear. Hopefully that will help because it is making lound grinding noises.
