    Hi All,

    I have a 35002 PS2, I have always had problems reading DVD's, I put a new laser unit in about 1 week ago.

    I have been watching The Matrix and it started skipping about Chapter 19, and It wont even play Chapter 20-21-22, after that i gave up.

    The DVD works fine in the computer. I have cleaned the disc, but there are a few minor scratches on it

    I was wondering if i need to adjust the screw that holds the laser onto the rail?

    I adjusted the white knob and it plays matrix again :)

    anyways i think i have it worked out, the bit where it was stuffing up was layerchange.

    ie at the end of chapter 18 it swaps the the second layer and from then on playback went to shit..

    now after making the deck higher (anticlock wise turn of white knob) the PS2 can read the disk :) woohoo

    cheers for the info
