I've searched the forums with about 9 different key words that i could think about for this subject matter but to no avail. So if there is already a thread with this info please don't flame me, since i was unable to find it. I recently installed a Flip Top on my PS2 (V1 Model, first release) For the first day and a half it worked great, played my copied games with no problems, sure the disc took a while to read but i'm assuming that's a laser issue. Now the Reset/Eject buttons won't work, they either both turn on and the eject does nothing. I press eject and it just blinks and no response. Other times i hit the reset button and the eject light doesn't even come on. And other times i hit reset and they both turn on, but the PS2 just has a black screen "thinking" about loading up. I'm confused as to why this is happeneing, i made sure that the cables for the buttons were not pinched, and i cleaned the laser with alcohol and a wipe just to make sure it would be clean. Since this is a V1 PS2 model i'm assuming it's time for a new one, but if there is a chance i can save $100 could i just buy a new laser and cable for the reset/eject buttons? Would that fix my problem, or is my dilemma more complicated than just that?
