Thanks man. In the mean while I'll keep nibblin' these hot cheetos and try cleaning the laser to see if that helps.

* Sigh * Well I cant find a guide for your particular system setup. I can only find anything on the ''Big cog''. This is odd. Someone must a system like this ?

Yeah, I couldn't find any info either. I've turned the 2 white cogs the same direction the same amount of times. Will probably try that again in a minute. I don't get why it plays PS1 games (black) but won't play anything else. Either way I'll probably buy this ps2 and use it as a ps1 till I can get an actual PS2 then I'll sell this one at a pawn shop or something.

Well Playstation disks are of a CD format. Most PS2 games are of a DVD format. The Laser has to adjust itself to read different media. It may be that its fine reading PS1 media but not PS2 and so on.

once the cogs get like this I can't turn them any more:




there is a little indention on the cogs, a marking if you will. when the markings get to this position from going clockwise it stops turning.

I guess my only option is to sell this at a pawn shop (where it was purchased from) and buy a REAL ps2.

I called this pawn shop near my house and told them the situation and he thought that I had the older version PS2's, the ones you can FIX. well, they won't buy the older versions that can be fixed. they'll only buy my version which YOU CAN ****ING FIX.

anyways, I think I'm going to buy one of their slim ps2's for $79.

any objections?
