Ps2 drive failure in slim models

I don't know what it is but i have been all over the net and no one has any idea what the real culprit is. i get ps2 slims in my shop all the time that have dead drives, ie no response from the laser or the spindle when the lid is shut. i know the switches are good and the lasers work, as well as the spindles, have you had any luck fixing this problem? it usually happens after the ps2 has been dropped. let me know, it's really bugging me. thanks.

My PS2 has been played so long, let those PS2's run for a minute, usually it takes a minute or two kicking on for those, I have one that takes a while to kick on. If that doesn't work then you just can't do anything, sounds like something is just messed up, when I have a spare PS2 i'll drop it and see what happens for you.

I thought playstations are all formated to play any made of equal or lesser p.s. value such as p.s.3. should play p.s.2. games


I believe you're asking about backwards compatibility. While I agree a PS3 should be able to play PS2 games, it's sadly not always the case. While they all can play PS1 games, not every PS3 can play PS2 games. PS2 compatibility depends on the model.

Backwards compatibility with PS2 games has slowly been phased out. The original PS3's had hardware emulation (quite literally there is a PS2 inside of your PS3). The later revisions had software emulation only (PS3 processor pretends to be the PS2 processor), and then none at all. No slim PS3 has backwards compatibility.

Hardware emulation:
20 GB PS3 Fat/Original - Model CECHB01
60 GB PS3 Fat/Original - Model CECHA01

Software emulation:
80 GB PS3 Fat/Original - Model CECHE01

In my personal experience, there's no real difference between software and hardware emulation in terms of actual game play. Software emulation has a few hang-ups on some older games, but overall it works pretty well. And it's infinitely better than not having any ability to play PS2 games at all.

Hope that helps!

I want to start net on my ps2 how can i connect it through bluthoot modem


You can't use bluetooth to connect the PS2 to the internet. If you have the old PS2 model you need the ethernet adapter that sits on the back. The PS3 Slim has built-in ethernet.

Also, you can't access the net (surfing etc). You can only use the internet for online games (SOCOM etc).

PS2 OR PS2 SLIM


ps2 can play dvds but xbox needs a store bought xbox dvd remote to play dvds
the ps2 slim and the ps2 normal have a lot in common so thwere is not much difference, but the slim has a fliptop lid and the fat ps2 has a open and shut slide drive.If I were you I would get the slim because it is the only one you can get brand new nowadays. The xbox may have halo 1 and 2 but sometimes there are freezes on certain xboxes.

PS2 Slim Line Problem


The problem is with the disc drive itself. Most common problem is the give in the spindle starts to go and gets to be to much and you get floating of the disc while in play. If the system is still in waranty I would sudgest contacting the MFG and getting it fixed or replaced. If not in waranty then your only other choice is to find another system for cheap and rape it for parts and replace the drive.

PS2 (fatty Model) Does not power on


No! absolutely do NOT open the PS2. You will make a huge mistake especially since you dont know what to look for. Besided, if someone here tells you it is one thing, how do they know for sure? Just go with the Warranty.
