Question about Sony PlayStation 2 (PS2) Console

Open Question

PS2 - FFX 'Freezes' outside Temple of Yevon-Djose.


Replaying this game after what seems like centuries, using a relatively unused PS2, and FFX always 'freezes' at the same spot. This isn't a disc issue; I have a new disc and the same problem happens as with my old one.

Basically, I get a full animation cycle of Yuna praying in front of the temple, with background music and the screen shaking due to the rumbling, then it glitches, and jumps back to the start of the animation cycle.

Any help at all would be appreciated. Would getting another PS2 Slim be the best bet? (they aren't expensive these days, and this one is borrowed from my brother, so I'd rather not do anything untoward to it).

Thanks, Richard

    Update: tried this on another PS2 Slim, same model, and it worked fine. I'm just going to give the non-working one back to my brother, inform him of the glitch and to keep an eye out if the same thing happens in any other games and leave it at that.

    Sorry to bother you all.

Read Error (With FFX game)

Hi Raven, Its sounds like you have a PS2 Slim with a melted Laser. What you will find is that the Slim will only read CD's, CDR's, PS1 Games, Blue back PS2 games and DVD's. I can repair this for $35 plus shipping to and from The Playstation Clinic in Fountain Inn, SC. The webpage is If you do not have a Slim, you either have dirty disc, or Lens. You may have left some fibers from the Q-tip across or around the lens.
