Yesterday my ps2 was working great. I have a mod chip and HD advanced with a 200gb Maxtor hard drive. This morning when I put a PS2 DVD game in (original not backed up) I got the blue BROWSE and SYSTEM CONFIGURATION page. I selected the X in an attempt to read the DVD and got NO DATA. READING DISK is displayed and continues to blink. I pressed the top button on my PS2 in an attempt to reset it. I unplugged it and tried it again. I tried a backup DVD and the HD Advanced disk. I still get that NO DATA screen that I believe is called the "Red screen of death". My guess is the laser is bad but I don't want to spend the time or the money to fix it until I can find out for sure. What do you guys think is wrong? Is there a way to determine what is wrong? Thanks for any Input.
