Hi. Can I pick you collective brains on an recurring problem please. I installed a magic3.6 in my V3PAL PS2 (or rather, I threw out the clip as it my machine turned out to be the GAP version and I could'nt use). I ended up doing a 3.1 install from the diagram. Anyhow, all works just fine as it should (with the exception of my V3 drive not loving DVDR's, but then that topics been covered here). Onto the problem. This has happened three times now since I Modded, and it happened again yestarday. I was happly playing for 3-4hours, popped the tray, put in a new disc, hit reset ... Damn! the PS2 resets, but the tray stays out. Hit reset multiple times, same thing. Now as I said this is not the first time. Last time I took the whole thing apart, re-checked all my solder points for bridges and continuety with a multi-meter. Everything is fine. I thought the culprit was one, or both of the ribbon cables no being in properly and have re-seated them numerous times. Last time, after closing all up, it went back to working fine. Now, its still on the blink. However, I found this. When the tray is out and non responsive, if I just push it in manually a little (i'm talking about 1cm) then hit reset it works fine ?? I seems like the tray is coming out too far or summin? Or like the PS2 dont know exactly where the tray is ?? So, anyone seen this before? O know which, if any, of the solder points might be resposible for this odd behavour? Thanks in advance for any advice .. It's just not right having to push my tray 1cm!
