alrighty, I've been trying to fix an inherited PS2.When I got it I couldn't get off the browser screen and read here and there that it'd probably be a dirty laser. I followed all instructions from http://www.tweak3d.net/joomla/tutorials/hardware-repair/playstation-2-repair_6 and found that afterwards it would not even turn on anymore. I read troubleshooting about it in the comments section, and most people said that it would be due to a loose cable ribbon so I opened things up again, according to their instruction and found the ribbon was in as tightly as possibleeven did some jiggling and there was still no effect; nevertheless I'm not convinced it's totally broken. Are there any other repairs or errors I can check on that you all can think of? thanks so much.
