    i foolishly lost a screw whilst trying to replace my laser and fell into around teh expansion bay area. it was the section right next to it, opened it up with a magnetic screwdriver..repaired it all back to way it was and now when i try to turn on ps2 wont turn on.

    first time i tried turn it on after it went red briefly and faded...im quite worried i may need new one..any ideas?

    The only thing i can think of is the magnetic screwdriver could have affected something. Are you getting any powere at all or is it just the laser isn't working?

    im not getting any power at all, the magnetic screwdriver was solely on the screw tho, not sure if static has affected it in some form

    Its the only thing i can think of. Is it an old ps2 as the power supply could have worn out.

    also check the fuse on the powersupply board.
    if you know how to use a multimeter, turn on the machine and see if you have voltage from the power supply.

    or check the voltage on the regulators should be 5 volts.
