[quote=Dotard;3496353]Um there still might be hope. If its anything like the ps1 (I own all of the ps consoles), you should be able to boost the laser's power. There should be some guides about it. I had this happen to me on a ps1, tweaked the laser and it was reading data fine again.
two solutions on this web page. Don't trust them 100%, but it will give you an idea of what you can/will have to do.

The unit is far from dead. I just mentioned in another thread that you can try and adjust the cog wheels that either brings the laser closer or farther away from the disk in order to read it. Try one click on one wheel at a time. Mark the original position of the wheel first and adjust from there.
