Question about Sony PlayStation 2 (PS2) Console

2 Answers

Recording button can't be pushed down any longer

Recorder fell from kitchen table on tiles - everything ( radio/tapes ) still worked after that fall - all was fine, except the button for recording ( the button with the red dot ) it resists to get pressed down.

It moves like 1 millimeter or so down along with the tape play button when I attempt to press the recording button down

I also can see the millimeter down movement behind the open tape lit, the whole metal mechanism goes down 1 millimeter along with the attempt pressing the recording button down -

So I can't record, can't get the recording button down into the
" click in - stay - record position "
So no recording is possible any longer.

Oh, I see, you're talking about a cassette player, You are in the wrong section if that's what you're talking about. If thats the case, then the impact of the fall must have jammed it . and you may have to go in and correct it by freeing it up

1. PlayStation 2 systems do not handle tapes, but CDs and DVDs. No wonder you have broken it if you inserted a tape in it.
2. There is no radio in a PlayStation 2 system.
3. On a PlayStation 2 system, the button with a red dot on it is the power button, and it turns green when the power is on.
4. You cannot record, especially not on tapes, with a PlayStation 2 system.
5. You usually don't play a PlayStation 2 in the kitchen, but in the living room since it's meant to be plugged in your TV.

Here's the diagnostic : you do not own a PlayStation 2 system.
You have been ripped off by whoever sold you this piece of **** under the name of "PlayStation 2 system".

I cannot record a TV show on my DVD-VCR375, niether to a VCR tape or DVD disc. Nothing but static results. The recording mode of my machine works OK in dubbing from tape to disc.

You have to be sure you are running your video source THROUGH your VCR. Just because it's on the TV doesn't mean your VCR can see it. How are you hooked up? Cable? Satellite? If you are on basic cable you have a tough problem. This VCR does not have a tuner built into it. You will have to use a television or other device that has a tuner and a "MONITOR OUT" or "VIDEO OUT" plug in the back of it. This is usually a composite, or yellow-colored cable. You will run this cable into the yellow plug in the back of the VCR that says "IN." You also need "AUDIO OUT" jacks from your television or other device. These are usually red and white cables. Plug these cables into the red and white "IN" plugs on your VCR by the yellow one. If you are using something like satellite where you have a box, you will want to plug in your satellite receiver to your VCR using the same colored cables. If you have to plug in the cables that once went to your television, you need to turn your television to the input you normally use to watch your VCR. You may need to change inputs on the VCR. You should then see your satellite or cable box on the television set. It is now running THROUGH your VCR. Hopefully, at this point, you are hooked up correctly. If you are using the "MONITOR OUT" method, you just have to have faith that it's working. If you're using the other method you can actually see it on the screen. Now tune to whatever you're trying to record and press the record button. Be advised, however, that many DVD/VCR recorders have protection detection built into them (particularly on the DVD side) and your recording may stop part-way through and tell you that "this content is protected." If you have other questions post back. Best of luck.

Our wii controllers are not syncing, when we finally get one of them to work the other does not, also it seems to be the numchuck cancelling out the conection, sorry I am only 23 and I rely need an answer

the first thing to try is
power down the wii and unplug it wait for 60 seconds power the wii up, then push the flap on the front down, it is just below the DVD slot press and hold the red button (may be a different colour depending on version) for at least 15 seconds - this will delete the sync records from the wii
no on each remote you want to connect - take the battery cover off and press the red button -this will cause the remote to try a full sync as if the box was new.
Please let me know if this works, if not we can try some further steps.

DVD stopped recording vhs tapes after I used head cleaner on the VHS. Says taped are protected, even tho they are tapes I copied once already (I decided to try that before looking for help with you).

Usually there is a slot or hole with tabs covering them in the front of the VCR tape as it is sitting in the VCR ready to go.If the tabs are broken off,that is the only time you should get a protected notice.Is this anything you did?If not,you have recorded VCR tapes to the DVD recorder before?Is that correct?Just reply to this post and I will get an auto email saying you replied.Greg

Just hooked an atari 2600 jr. up to a lcd television, everything works fine except for the select and reset buttons.

Had the same problem with an atari 2600 jr I just purchased. The reset and select buttons are imprinted on a plastic film and it has probably deteriorated.. I repaired the traces in mine with aluminum tape, but It would not be dificult for someone with a soldering iron to replace them with real buttons purchased from radio shack. (It's only 3 wires)
