It's very possible that

It's very possible that dropping the unit damaged it, or knocked the laser assembly totally out of alignment. If it's the latter, you may be able to fix it yourself. There's plenty of discussion threads with advice on how to proceed. Do a few searches and I'm sure you'll find what you're looking for.

The latter... meaning the

The latter... meaning the last thing I said... 

 

English Lesson (Just in case you're still confused):

I say "it was this or that."

"This" becomes the former, while "that" becomes the latter.

Example: 

It's very possible that dropping the unit damaged it, or knocked the laser assembly totally out of alignment.

"Dropping the unit damaged it" becomes the former. "Knocked the laster assembly totally out of alignment" becomes the latter.

By saying "If it's the latter, you may be able to fix it yourself." I'm saying that if the laser was knocked out of alignment, you may be abile to fix it yourself.

As far as your PS2 goes, some searches would reveal quite a few discussions on this topic. Here's the ones I found the most helpful.
