> Hey all, I just bought a broken PS2 off of ym friend for $50. THe problem with it is that it plays CD games, but not DVD games. Therefore I believe its a problem with the laser drive. Can anyone point me in the direction of a good guide to fixing and recalibrating broken PS2's? I hear this type of problem is usually fairly simple.

not really. the DVD laser diode is shot, no chance to repair that. if you have a neo modchip in it, make sure it has a capacitor installed, or it will kill the dvd laser on a replacement within weeks too.
you'll have to replace the entire laser unit. replacements can be bought at lik-sang, for example.
