PS2 shutoffs during gameplay

During gameplay or even during playing a dvd my ps2 will shutdown and the red light will start blinking. at first i thought it was maybe just the game i was playing but then it started to do so for all the disc's i insert into it. i would like to know why it is doing this and how i can fix it, if i can.

    thats what i thought at first, but i can hear the fan. it does feel warm when it shuts off, but no warmer than it did before this problem started to happen.
    if it is over heating, what do i do to fix it?

    you can buy new fan and do it yourself, or get someone to do it for you for a lot of bet is to go on ebay and buy a used broken one for parts... just make sure the fan works.

    yeas but not if its the motor. i dont wanna tell you to open it because youll void any kind or repair work you might need later, you can just go buy an extra fan with the stand, they actually sell em.. lemme look somethings up and ill write again

Disc Tray

The rubber band inside your PS2 might be broken, the rubber band supports the disc tray and it ejects and inserts the tray.

Sometimes if play too much long, some of the PS2 parts will be damaged by excessive heat, so my advice is that your minimum gameplay time must be 3-4 hours only.

Please den't even try forcing the tray to open, it will be more damaged.

Try resting your PS2 for about 1-2 days, after that try to open the tray, if the problem still persist bring to a PS2 fixer near you.

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.

PS2 will not play DVD

Make sure the disk is compatible and not damaged.Try playing another disk and see what happens if you still do not get anything you may want to consider a xbox or 360 with remote control for dvds. Also check to see if ps2 has a remote for playing dvd disc. never worry!!
