Plz help out an idiot in saving PS2



Ok, i tried loading up a Gameshark and it just brought me to the browser screen. so i thought mayb the laser is dirty so i crack open the ps2 and wipe the eye with a q-tip and rubbing alchohol. it still didn’t work so i tried adjusting the laser height. this is where the idiot part ocme sin cuz i didn’t mark the original position of the white cog wheel. i’ve alreadi tried turning the cog wheel one click at a time and tryign to load a gmae up up each time, but i find no position works. so i need sum1 to direct me towards wat i could do to fix my problem. thank you in advance to whom will be willing to tell me what to do.
