Basically my ps2 died a lil while back. Not totally dead. but possibly more dead then its worth to get it fixed. Originally i thought the laser might have died, but maybe its more the motor that spins the disc. im not sure. so i have a question maybe someone can help me with. firstly, it died while reading my hdl disc, and it was spinning for maybe 5 minutes before it died. i took the disc out, and it would appear that the laser had concentrated on the one spot (thats why i think its not the laser, and more the spinner thingo ) when i put a disc in, i dont hear anything such as the laser even trying to move, or the disc start to spin. Q: does it look like its not the laser ? Q: is it possible to get fixed if it isnt ? Q: am i better off buying another ps2 instead ? cheerios.
