Question about Sony PlayStation 2 Slimline Console

1 Answer

Playstation 1 won't spin.

I have this Sony Playstation 1 the old model. Last night, I played with it and everything was so cool. Until, I turned it off to have a break and moments later (15mins.to be exact) it won't spin any disc that I placed in.

It only appears the Sony logo (Intro part after you pushed the Power switch). And nothing more.

Please somebody help me with this... Is there anything that I can do with my beloved Playstation..My child badly wants it back.

Thanks for future answers....

Trow it away because the only place you can get replacement parts is in pawn shops but it is so hard to get them

My old model ps3 stops playing any cd,DVD or games.... But everything else works just fine. Any solution? Updating 3.50 will help? Thanks


An update will most likely not help. It sounds like there is something wrong with your disc drive, and an update won't help that. Sounds like a hardware issue, my man.

My ps3 just went off while playing last night now the red light just keeps flashing and my game is stuck inside how do i fix it


Hello,

You can try the steps below. Its from PlayStation Forum:

1. Turn off Playstation®3.
2. Hold the power button down; the system will turn on and turn off once again.
3. Once the System has been shutdown, re-press you finger until you hear 2 consecutive beeps
4. When you hear the 2 beeps take finger off power button.
5. You will be prompted to plug in your controller via USB and then hit the PS button
6. The Recovery menu will pop up.

The current Recovery Menu supports:
• Restart System: Restarts the PLAYSTATION®3 System.
• Restore Default Settings: Reset all system settings back to default.
• Restore File System: Checks for corrupt/missing system files.
• Rebuild Database: Rebuilds the OS for the PLAYSTATION®3.
• Restore PS3 System: Fresh restore; Deletes everything and starts from Scratch.
• System Update: Update the PLAYSTATION®3 System

If the above steps still does not solve the problem, then I think will have to update your Ps3.

Update your PS3 (in the settings menu the 1st option).

Go on the internet browser on the PS3 then go on the menu press triangle then on one of them there are delete cookies and the delete the others as
well as cookies.

You could also try this as well: put the PS3 on then press the eject button (with no disc in) then hold it and switch the PS3 off at the back with your finger on the eject button still holding it, then put it back on and the fan test should be working this may cool it down. It might be over heating.

But if your problem is not still solved, then maybe you should call sony for further assistance.

I wish you good luck.

Most of the times, you're going to find that this is due to over heating. If you've been playing for a while, shut down your Playstation, and let it sit for about 1 hour. It's best if the room is cooled off as well.If the room is hot, you may want to put a fan blowing toward it, or turn up your Air Conditioning.Check the back of your unit, and make sure that all of the cables are plugged in. What you're going to want to do is take out each one, and blow the inside of the ports with compressed air.

To play it safe, take out the Playstation's hard drive, and place it back in.Once the 1 hour is up, and the Playstation hasn't been running, turn it back on, and see if everything is working. If it is, you're good to go! If it isn't, you may want to consult with Sony.

When the ps2 is on and the disc is in, so this:
1. Turn the ps2 horizontly
2. When you hear the ticks of the laser trying to read, tap it against your knee until you hear it spin

I'm not sure if this will work with the fat ps2s because I have a silver SCPH-79001 model. Hope I helped

My ps3 is not working


It's a Sony defect with the blu-ray lasers. They only last 1-3 years with average use. If your PS3 is less than a year old and you still have the original receipt Sony will repair the problem for free. Otherwise they're going to charge you $150 for the repair. You can reach them at: 1-800-345-SONY

Unless you have a technical background in electronics there's nothing I would suggest doing. A firmware update and or CD /DVD cleaner disk will do nothing for your problem. I've fixed more than 100 PS3's with this exact problem so I know exactly what I'm talking about.
