Default ps2 not wanting to boot

sponsored links

A friend of mine gave me a v5 ps2 which had been modded with a magic3 modchip which had been working with no problems everything was booting and playing
he gave me the ps2 to look at he said he didnt work i powerd it up and no lights came on the ps2 so i had a look inside and i noticed the eject cable was out of the mother board and i also noticed some screws wernt in correctly (i know everything was ok before he had it i was there when it was modded) (to be honnest this is what i think my friend did he wanted to see what the modchip looks like so he opended it up to see and yanked on the top which caused the eject cable to come out) anyway i put the cable back in powerd it up the power light comes on and switches on u can hear the fan but it wont eject nor will it boot up to sony screen i checked all the connections and they are ok i even removed the modchip and its still not booting nor ejecting
anyone know what the problem could be? could he of shorted it with the reset cable coming out? maybe a fuse?

any help would be gratefull

even if the eject fuse was blown you would get the BROWSER SCREEN. Do you get a blue light? also check the ribbon to see if it is damaged or if the Laser ribbon was plugged in.

First check if the Ribbon cable is still good..
check for Blown fuse on the board ..
BA Chip might be dead
