Hi! I would like to ask for your opinions. I have an old PS2 and it can't read any ps2 dics anymore, I already cleaned the lens but is still won't read. Is the problem its lens or its motor? how much(in the philippines please) would it cost for me to replace its lens or motor? Thanks

That seems to be a common problem for the PS2 and XBox (possibly other consoles). I have yet to see an economical solution. Sorry.
That would indicate that a trace has been cut to the laser. You may be in luck, as this is a simple problem to fix. Simply insert a small wire to the appropriate power supply (I couldn't say which would be appropriate, you'll have to do some research... though I'd suspect 5V - don't take my word on this, do some research!).

Raising the voltage would have no effect if 0 volts is getting to the laser. I would recommend not changing it for now - it is probably fine where it is currently set.
