Question about Sony PlayStation 2 (PS2) Console

1 Answer

My PS2 will play the games for a little then they will freeze.

Okay i have a PS2 SCPH-75001--it is a thin PS2. Like earlier in October it would play the game sjust fine until like a week or two ago it wouldn't play the games fully. I would put the game in, it would load up, go pass the Playstation 2 logo popping up, then it would get to the loading screen and then it would freeze. I've tried Grand Theft Auto San Anderas, Spider-Man, Midnight Club Three Dub Edition Remix, the newest racing game, Tekken 5, and Tekken Tag Tornament. I even had tried two DVD cleaners that can work in the PS2 but they won't show up on the screen. I bought a remote for the PS2 to see if i could navigate through the DVD cleaning process but it wouldn't work. Anybody with a clear answer please help me out with this becuase the PS2 isn't even mines, im borrowing it.

You need to have a wired connection. Plug one end of a ethernet (cat5/cat6) into one of your router's ports. Plug the other into the back of the PS2. You will have to sign up for a free Playstation Network account.

Which multitap do I buy?


There were two versions of the multi-tap made; one for the original fat PS2 and a smaller version made for the slim. The two versions are incompatible with the other PS2. If you have the original multi-tap connected to the slim, it should throw out the 'controller disconnected' message when you boot up. The slim version of the multi-tap should have a sticker on the bottom saying 'only works with models SCPH-70000, SCPH-75001, SCPH-75002'.

Other than the sports games, I don't recall any titles that allow more than two players anyway.

Hi Ron, To the best of my Troubleshooting knowledge on the Slim, this sounds like a Temperature problem. Do not lay the Slim on the carpet when playing and try not to keep it in sunlight. It will last you much longer to shut it off when not using it. Let it cool off and try it again. If dust is the culprit, you will need to disassemble the Slim and clean it out, mainly the fan. The Slims fan is very succeptable to dust accumulation. www.playstationclinic.com
