Question about Sony PlayStation 2 Slimline Console

1 Answer

The ps2 green light will go green when switched on etc. but if u were playing on your ps2, then stopped then started again and it didnt work then this might solve your problem.

Even hear a fast high pitched sound especially when your ps2 is on a loading screen. thats the laser moving backs and forward. for me i knew that there was no disc read error or overheating etcetc. the disc did not spin so i thought it was because the laser was not reading at the correct section. my methos is to turn off the ps2. then move the laser back to the back end of the ps2. DO NOT touch the surface of the laser. wait a few seconds then try your ps2 now. worked for me and a couple of other mates who had the same problem

My door will not stay shut to play a game what is ps2 door was not opening so we thought we fixed it but now it wont stay shut . all lights are on just wont stay shut to even read/play any games...

the tray doesnt stay in. does your ps2 sit on its side where the tray is sideways, or is it straight up? i think you should try rotating it to a point where it should stay shut.

Ps2 slimline.... disc doesnt spin, laser not flashing or moving... no data on browser

My ps2 has/had the same problem, it wouldn't read DVD movies at all and ps1 games were always hit or miss. The only two solutions i can suggest are cleaning the lens or replacing the little cotton pad that holds the disk in place near the laser. This seemed to fix it for me, it works about 85% of the time now. Hope one of these helps

Controller problems

Have you gone back and tried that game again? And were you using one (or both) of the two sticks to move in that game, or were you using the directional pad.

The dual shock controllers on the PS2 have a small, easily overlooked button between the two sticks. It has a red light directly above it. If you push that button, the light will switch on and off. When the light is on, you can use the sticks in pressure sensitive mode. For example, if you push the stick a little, your character may walk, but if you push it further in a direction he will run instead. It's used differently in different games. But certain games won't operate unless that feature is either on or off (again, it varies by game).

My guess is that the button was accidentally pressed while you were playing, and suddenly the controller didn't work. But when you switched games, most games will turn the light on when they start up, if they need it, so the problem corrected itself.

DVD-videos won't play, games do

If your PS2 is chipped for playing PS2 fake games then try the following steps: 1)Insert the DVD movie in your PS2 and hold the power button of PS2 until it light goes red. 2)Now again hold the power button until the light turns in green. and after that your DVD movie should work. ________________________________________________ If above solution does not works replace the lens with a new one.

Changing of ps2 consol light from green to red

try to hold the red button & see if it works. if not then turn the ps2 off & try again. if it doesnt work then look for a nearby ps2 repair shop. dont go reparing over 90 pounds when you can get a new one. hope for the best, eh. GOOD LUCK!!!!
