Default Another Laser Question

sponsored links

All of a sudden the other day my Messiah 2 modded PS2 started going from booting games directly flawlessly to going to the browser screen, then going to the memory card or disc selection. From there, the games, dvdrs, ususally ritek or princo which both have always worked, would sometimes work. Is this the laser going out? Is there anyway to clean it other than taking it apart and cleaning the laser with a cutip with some alcohol on the end?

Yep.. Defo a laser issue..

Seen LOADS of these now. Basically clean the laser lense with a Q-Tip and some alcohol.. If this makes no difference then the laser is on its way out..

I got mine for about $40 shipped - look around real hard - I did, there is a large spectrum of prices out there.

take a look at this [url=***********]thread and as felix17 said, do some shopping, you'll be surprised at some of the price ranges.
