    Hi

    For some reason my Swap Magic 3.6 (DVD) has stopped working it starts to spin and then the laser keeps clicking when it trys to speed the disk up.

    The cd version will work and so will my orginal PS2 games.

    Could this be that my laser is on the way out ??

    Can anyone help. I have seen guides on the internet for changing the voltage etc.. but these are only for the bulky Ps2.

    thanks for any help !!!

    Have you tried using other DVD games? Or other DVD type media in general, like a DVD movie? Does the same thing happen if you put those one in?

    The same thing occured to me, your laser is dying (most likely). My 'other' slimline PS2 can now only read CD-Based games, but I use it just to stream media now.

    What you can do is get a laser replacement. I don't think it'll cost much...

    A laser replacement is dirt cheap and on youtube there are videos on how to install it. I didn't think it was that easy to do but it is.
