Question about Sony PlayStation 2 Slimline Console

Ongoing Playstation2 Slimline issue

I've read your help before, so I'd like to ask:

When the browser started coming up, not the game, I checked out this site and got a new laser. That worked for a few good months and I was quite happy with myself. But with two small boys, it makes sense that the second laser would soon fry as they probably left it on with no disc, etc. So we got another laser. Now, installed, there remains no spin-age! I know about the disc break/2 little buttons to hold down, and still nothin. Can you tell me if our days of Saturday morning gaming are over?

Hi...
The laser wont go on unless the disc is IN and the cover is closed.
There is a disc brake post coming down from the LID . If it's broken , the disc wont spin/read.
The post is on the back right of the LID it (normally) goes thru a cutout that moves the brake out of the way.
Other troubles are debris on the worm gear that drives the laser assembly back n forth.
If the post is broken drill out the old one and put some kind of plastic or wooden stick about 1/4 inch long in it's place

Rock band won't play on my playstation2 slimline


We had the same problem, we even went and bought a whole new Rock Band. My husband turned our PS2 slimline on the side and it started working. I don't know why or how, I just know it worked for us. Give it a try and I hope it works for you also.

Ps2 slimline disc reading error


HI Heytev,

 

Three things. 

  1. The laser could be melted from extended attempts at reading an unreadable disc. If so, You need a new laser.
  2. The Disc is not spinning which could be a motherboard failure. If so, you need a new motherboard
  3. Dust has infiltrated the laser and contaminated the Mirrors or Pickup. If so, you need a new laser.

Ok now that you see the reasons, it is more likely you need a new laser. go to Ebay and buy you one. They are fairly simple to change. Call or email me when you get a New laser.  My information is at www.playstationclinic.com  Hope this helps you.
