    Default Strange PS2 DVD problem

    Right, I rebuilt my V6 PS2 (don't ask why) and made sure all wires and ribbons were inserted correctly. The problem I have is that it doesn't read any type of DVD (game or video, pressed and DVD-r) but it will boot CD's fine. Does anyone have any ideas?

    It isn't chipped at the mo if that helps as well...

    Cheers people, Looks like I will be rebuilding it again tonight.

    For the record all the pieces are original and from a V6 PAL PS2.
