I fixed my ps2 alot of times. your problem is either in socket where u plug the power cord into your ps2. or you have a bad connection. what ever you do. dont take it apart while its plugged in. after you got it all apart. just the cover. then you can plug it in to see whats going on. there might even be a jam in the gears. or your ps2 will always shut off if it gets to hot. the fan might not be working. try it out first. if you find the problem. go to ebay.com and search for a part or sometimes you can find a whole ps2 that has broken parts in it that they cant fix or have the money to fix. if u buy a whole ps2. you can take what you need for parts. thats what i do. works everytime.

it's dirty. that's all there is too it. your whole system is dirty if you haven't cleaned it. try cleaning it with spray-air or whatever you have in your stores. and if you've kept cleaning it try cleaning the laser.

The gamr big ol bass 2 does not work on my ps2


If you're getting a Disc Read Error, you may need to clean the disc. Inspect it for scratches. Is it the only PSX game that won't work? If all your PSX games won't read, you should clean the lens of your PS2, although the read errors are a sign of lens damage.

Disc wont spin


There are 4 reasons a disc won't spin on the Slim PSP. The most common is a failed laser.

1. Failed laser -- the disc will not spin up to speed, or not spin at all, due to a bad laser. If you close the PS2 with no disc inside, the ps2 will never spin the disc. If you chose the PS2 with a disc inside but a bad laser, it still thinks no disc is inside and will not spin.

2. Lid closed sensors. There are two of them. One on the motherboard and one on the reset switch. These sensors let the PS2 know that the lid is closed. If one or both of these break, the disc will never spin because the PS2 will think the lid is still open.

3. Damaged case. If the case of the PS2 is damaged, the two parts of the lid that are supposed to press the lid-closed sensors will never press them.

Hi, my laptop kept breezing so i took it to a computer repair person, i was told that i need a new motherboard, i been having a hard time finding it for a reasonable price. My laptop model #W650A serie M...


Hi lettrujillo,

I'm not sure what you think a reasonable price is, but keep in mind your won't be able to get one new from Gateway. However, it seems that they run from $150.00 up to $200.00 by googling it. I found one on eBay HERE, that seems reasonable. You can alway send it to a repair person to review it, but the cost would be about the same. Last option would be to contact Gateway and ask for a upgrade discount to a new laptop.

Good Luck,

And don't forget to leave a rating,


Thanks Mark

Rockband freezing ps2


the disk may be damaged , If it has the smallest scratch or smudge on the disk the ps2 will not play it. is it the slim or older ps2 ? if it continues to freeze I would return it as damaged. There should really no reason for it freezing unless it has a damaged disk or your PS2 needs cleaned or repaired. Hope this helps and I hope you get it up and going.

Ps2 damage


It looks like you damaged your PS2 firmware, if this is the case you will need to have it reflashed at a sony repair centre.
Check if connectors to video and cold solder joint to video output are ok, test capacitors and resistors for continuity, using a multimeter, see if you find some cap that has blown, that will be luck.
If you do not find anything, it means that you have damaged some of the ICs, probably by touching the board with bare hands and causing electrostatic discharge on IC contacts.
This can be fixed only at a Sone repair centre.
Ask to retailer or call the number listed on the PS user manual, if you are lucky you can purchase an extended guaranty for $80 and have it fixed for free for the next two years, or if the PS is less than one year old you can use your current factory guaranty.
Call Sony and ask.

the problem I had is my ps2 slimline wouldn't play ps2 games. so I went on line and followed instruction took it all apart cleaned everything nothing. put it back together, for some reason I openned the ps2 where the disk goes there you can see the eye, I took a small flat heat screw driver the ones you use to fix eye glasses, and put it under the eye assembly and so gentle pushed it up. now it works perfect. not to hard you don't want to break it, I didn't even see it move. Hope this helps

Playstation 2 doesnt work


You are posted in the Big PS2 section, so I hope you got a Big PS2, not a slim. If you do have a slim, I think your motherboard is shot. If you do have the big PS2, you need to open th case up and Disassemble it to find out whats wrong.  Your probably have a SCPH-50001 and when you dropped it some of the plastic inside broke. 

You need to remove the 8 screws on the bottom, which are hidden by square screw covers. You can pop the screw covers up with a knife blade.  Remove the Warranty label on the cases seam next to where the power cable hooks in. Lift the case from the back slightly and pull it forward just enough to clear the CD drawer. Then roll the over cover counter clockwise being carfeul not pull reset/eject button cable loose. In this motion lay the case cover to the right side upside down. 

Now remove the little screws holding the cd Drive cover on.  Yo may ned to use a screwdriver to put in the rectangle holes and pry outward to release the catch at the back of the CD drive cover.  See if you see any damage and write back a comment here . Hope this helps.

 

I can fix it for a reasonable price for you if you're in the USA.  www.playstationclinic.com

MY PS2 WONT LODE


You haven't provided a lot of detail about this problem but one thing that comes to mind is if you have the PS2 laying flat, turn it up on its side. For some reason some discs won't run if the unit is laying horizontal. If this doesn't solve your problem, please provide more information.
