I am completely new here so please excuse me if the topic is redudent. I just bought my pstwo brand new, along with GTA SA 2 weeks ago. Yesterday while I was in the middle of playing SA I suddenly got an on-screen message saying "please close your disk cover it is opened" (or something to that effect). I didn't drop the console it was sitting there rock still so I was like wtf. I then reset the pstwo and then it completely does not read anything at all. I proceeded to troubleshoot it and try to put in other games, some DVDs, then some CDs, none worked. When I turn the thing on it will stay at the 7 spinning growing balls screen (which says "browser/system configuraation"). So I went further and looked at the way the inside of the fliptop and tried to stick something down the buttons (those ones that tells the console the door is closed). No luck. I am thinking it must be a laser problem now. Should I return it? (it was from a local EB) I would like to hear if folks are having similar problems and if there is any possible work around. This really fusking sucks. I haven't owned the old PS2 before so this is really turning me off, SONY you hear me.
