You will need a Magnifying glass, Flashlight, Toothpick, and Paper towels.

What you need to do is access your laser, and make sure the laser optics are clean. Using the magnifying glass and flashlight, inspect the lens for dust, smudges and lint. Using a Toothpick with a small piece of paper towel swab the lens to clean it. If you need a Cleaning solution, use Windex. If this does not solve the problem, Get a new KHS-400C laser from Ebay. When the new laser arrives, you will need to remove solder blobs from the ribbon circuit strip on the bottom of the laser. These are two small solder blobs near the Ribbon cable connector. I do this with soldering iron, Vise ( to hold the laser), and Solder wick.

Ps2 slim scph-75001 starts to read the games but then stops!


your lense is more than likely defragmented jacob and you should never take any system apart okay so what you wanna do is if your warrenty is still in effect dont tell sony you took it apart just send it in for a refurbisment if it isnt you need to look around online for a ps2 slim lense okay

Wrong multi-tap


I allowed my 11 year old to do it and now it works!

1 Answer

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.

My ps2 reads all other games except guitar hero world tour.


To all you guys having this problem with PS2 - I bought World Tour for my brother and put it in this morning. It worked the 1st time we put it on, but we restarted the game because both guitars weren't connected, and it would NOT work after that (we have an old fat PS2 by the way). After reading online, I found out this disc is a Dual Layered DVD, and can cause problems reading it

Here's what I did to fix it - I took out all 8 screws on the bottom of the PS2, popped the case off, and then took out the 2 tiny screws for the DVD drive. After taking that case off, you can see the laser lens. All I did was clean it with an alcohol-soaked Q-tip, then buffed it clean, and after turning the game back on - it works fine! We're so pumped over here, and to anyone else having the problem, I bet this will fix it! Good luck!
