Question about Sony PlayStation 2 Slimline Console

Problem Accessing Server

I just replaced my older PS2 slimline with a new PS2 slimline. As you know there is no external power supply adapter on the new unit, just a power cord with a different connection at the back of the unit. I plug all my memory cards and wireless gaming adapter into this new unit. When my PS2 slimline boots up it informs me that 1) the UPDATE was performed on a different console and that it cannot be accessed from this unit. 2) When I try to access the SOCOM Combined Assault Online server & after getting to the Sony's DNS authorization portion a message appears: "cannot access server - check your network configuration - error msg 6xxx". The gaming adapter is working because I can access the internet with my laptop and I can get to the Sony DNS portion. So what is the problem related to #1 & #2? Your attention to this aggravating matter is much appreciated.

Ps2 slimline wont stay on red light goes on then off


The problem is most commonly the ac power cord. I have a PS2 slimline and I had a power cord that fit into the slot and was completly similar to the original cord ,but you may need to order a new cord to solve your red light situation.

My ps2 won't turn on


Hi,
    First check your adapter(mostly it start problem during long use) that is it ok, if yes the check the flexible strip of power supply. But as precautive measure dont try to fix it by yourself if you are not familer from electronics. Please contact any expert nearby.

Ps2 scph 77001 won't play backups on swap magic 3.6


This is a problem that has too many IF's in it lol. Let's take it from the top shall we?

When you said that you owned other PS2's were they the thick ones or the slim ones. Swap magic works best in the "thick older" models. In these new slimline ones it's got issues. That model number you posted belongs to a slimline model.

So since you're using a slimline model, I have to ask, Have you blocked the 2 sensors that you need to block in order to use swap magic. The slimline models are not like the older thick models. You need to block two sensors under the flip top so when you open the flip top the PS2 still thinks there is no swapping going on. If you have not blocked these sensors head over to youtube.com and start watchin vids with seach "how to block slim PS2 sensors" or "how to block slimline PS2 sensors" out of the three sensors you only really need to block two. If you have not done this at all, that is reason why it's not working. On older PS2 models you used a slidecard or some form of a flip top to swap out your disks. Nothing has changed on these slimline models. The PS2 still needs to be tricked out so it doesn't think you're swapping disks in and outa the system.

Hope that helps,

Slimline ps2


This is the most common problem with any ps2 the only thing you can try is cleaning the laser lense its best to use an actual lense cleaner in the form of a disk.
As it only reads compact disks this does mean your laser is on the way out but try cleaning lense and try again but you might find the problem remains.
The problem with you ps2 the slim one is that you cant adjust the laser the older bigger ps2 had a dial on the back of the laser tray that you could turn and adjust the height of the laser doing this got a couple more months usage out of the ps but the slimer one doesnt have this dial as they used newer lasers that couldnt be adjusted in anyway.
If cleaning doesnt make the ps2 any better then you need to replace the laser but the problem you have with this is if you buy a new laser its easy enough to fit yourself but buying a new laser means its going to need calibrating this isnt something you can do yourself unless you have an osciloscope to use on the board at test points these cost about $1000 to buy and if you get someone else to fit and calibrate they will charge more than the price of a new ps2 so its not financially worth doing.
The cheapest option is buying a second hand slimline ps2 that dont work but the laser is fine then you could transfer the laser without calibrating it but you need to be carefull and make sure the lasers are the same else it wont work at all.
Then the problem you will find is you do the repair then say 2 months down the line you get another problem this costing more money again.
What i would do but its upto you is just buy new ps2 knowing its working and is going to last a while the new ones now have better lasers and seem to last for ages ive had mine for years now and had no problem.
But i have got a slimline ps2 that dont work with same problem but what ill do is keep checking auction sites untill i can pick up cheap ps2 that dont work and replace any parts i need you can usually by damaged ps2 for about £10 including delivery but i repair them and sell them to make a bit of money but as you only want maybe one then theirs a risk involved not knowing if its going to work after the repair i suggest buy new one.
Sorry ive gone on a bit but thought it best if i give you all the info ok

Disk read error on slim ps2 scph 75003


hello pauldonp...if this is an early version of the slimline they had a problem with over voltage which inturn took out the laser.your only option may be to replace the laser . sony did bring out a mod for this..i preferr the real old version of the ps2 as they had all separate boards and if one went faulty you didnot have to replace the lot ,also the lasers were a lot cheaper than the later models .in the slim lines the lasers are not all that expensive .they do take a bit of setting up as you have to know the ohms setting on the laser for each model..hope this helps

PS2 Slim wont turn on


You might try a friends ps2 power supply of the same type to make shure it isnt the ps2 that is broken. If the friends power supply works, get a working one from ebay or something.
