    hey guys, i had a few probs recently with my ps2 when playing backups would skip, i saw info on these forums and various websites that adjusting the white cog near your laser and cleaning the laser can help. i did both of these but now my ps2 wont read anything. if may be useful to note that i did take the ps2 apart using the instructions from that cybermag site, and once id completed those instructions realised i didnt need to take it apart that much at all, and put it back together. is it possible i may have damaged something or is it to do with the white cog adjustment? any help would be much appreciated. thanks!

    also i forgot to mention when i swich the console on the red light on the laser does flash, so i think the laser is ok, and the disc spins for a second, but stops. i dont get a disc read error screen or anything, it just sits at the screen where you can select browser. any ideas/help appreciated!

    thanks for your comment billz. unfortunately i forgot to mark the original point of the white cog, all though i did sit for ages and try every possible possition. it did make the ps2 try and read the disc in some possitions but it just trys to read it for a while and then gives me a disc read error in browser.
