If you take the ps2 apart there is a unit which can come out that the controlers and memeory cards hook up to. Well this comes out once seperated from the ribbon and is replacable. I found this out by calling Sony and ordering the part. Call Sony helpline and be persistant. It is expensive and would have been cheaper to have it done proffessionaly, or get a used one...late

Couldn't find or open KIDS.QTR

I think this may be happening if you are running programs that use older versions of quicktime simultaneously with programs that need newer versions. I unistalled the older version (quicktime 32 bit) and the QT 7 and reinstalled the newwest version and it seemed to work. Also if you if nothing else works you can associate the kids.qtr file to open with kidsperation you can open the program too. It will give you an error that kidspiration can't open this type pf file but the program itself will open.

Hi, This is happen because : 1. You may bought a non original controller. 2. You may always engage the vibration function. Sony dual stick controller ( analog stick) has fine cables inside controller. The imitation ones even smaller. While you use the vibration function for long time, it make some cables apart.
Suggestion :- Use only original dual stick controller ( analog stick). Don't engage vibration function for long time - I believe you can reconnect the wires inside controller ( so just fix it yourself) and play..

Guitar Hero World Tour PS2

If you have old ps2(fat one) or some of the older slim models they are unable to read the new dual layer discs like GHWT. You can send your ps2 back to sony to reformat it to be able to read these new discs for about $50. There is currently a class action lawsuit against sony and activision for not being upfront about this problem.

Ps2 wont read discs and asks for format disc

I can guess that the games you are trying to play have a Blue underneath and not silver. This was a big problem with my sons disks too using the older version of the ps2. We managed to mess about with some of the settings and changed the rgb setting to the other option (can't remember what that was now...sorry) and got some of them to work, but not for long. When the new games come out now they expect you to have the slimline ps2 and unfortunalty won't work on the older model. So to fix this problem I just bought a new one.

Ok, I was having the same problem. You need to take your playstation apart and clean the laser with some alcohol. Only use alcohol as it dries faster and clear. Might as well clean the rest of the inside as well. you will be surprised at the dust it collects. After I done this my works fine.

Vibration malfuction

The controller will still function as normal,
But inside there is a BENT / CROOKED / weighted, spinning mechanism in one of the protruding grips... that often straightens or gets stuck.

The only way to fix it is to take it apart - EASY!
Putting it back together is - NOT!

firstly, spray the pins with a contact cleaner.

No AUX button on TV and lost orignal remote

Try hooking up PS2 as instructed and turn on. Then check all channels to find which one is receiving the signal. I had to do the same thing with an older RCA.
