Default Is my PS2 buggered?

sponsored links

 
I was in the middle of a game when it suddenly crashed. I went to reset it but nothing happened, and now all I get is a black screen everytime it powers up and aside from the that, the CD drive isn't opening either? It's chipped with the Messiah chip but I didn't install it myself so I can't open up the PS2 without voiding the installers warrenty. Thansk for the help guys!

Yeah mate, contact the installer if they provided a warranty. Sounds like a fuse has blown somewhere, possibly the power supply. If thats all it is then its an easy fix.

I got it back today from the installer and apparentely the chip inside which controls the power to the cd drive is f**ked and unreplaceable which means the whole thing is f**cked. Is this really true?
