What is the best way to clean a Playstation 2 console?

I believe it needs cleaning because some of the games will begin running but lock up. Is this a console issue or game discs issue?

If you are having problems with a play station 2, the first thing you need to do is buy a staples cleaning disk. once you have the disk all you have to do is put the CD in and play track 2. this will make your ps2 eye adjust so that the brushes on the disk will wipe it clean of dirt and other stuff.

Playstation 3 screen freezes while playting games how do you clean lasers/lens? Does Sony sell a dvd for cleaning the lasers/lens? And will this resolve my problem


It rarely actually helps to clean the laser for the PS3. It needs a new laser because the old one is "burnt out". It's a really common problem with them.

I buy mine at http://parts.consolerepairguy.com they run about $75 each.

I run a repair business and that place has best prices aside from Hong Kong which I don't trust.

Disney princess playstation 2 - game will not load at all


swkw7676,

Sounds like you need to purchase a DVD cleaner and use it.

Once you have cleaned the drive try running a game. If that game runs, your DVD player is working properly.

Try using Disney Princess again. If it still does not work, the issue lies with the disk itself.

To be on the safe side you should clean the disk.

To clean a disk properly you need:

1.) Rubbing alcohol (NEVER use Windex or similar cleaners)
2.) 100% pure cotton cloth.

I hope this helps.

My ps2 slimline wont read disks


Check if there is anything lodged inside where you close the front. or run a disk cleaning sequence with the Maxell or Radioshack(<---- works the best) disk cleaner. Run it three times. Plus you don't have to watch or listen when it is playing, just in the beginning.

It is highly possible that your Laser Lens has melted. You can try to clean the lens. Do Not use alcohol. It is best to use a toothepick lightly to swipe the dust from the lens. If your Lens is Melted, you will need a new laser. Post a picture of your Laser in here and I can tell you which part number you need.

Hello , TBagg
You are experiencing what I believe is the dreaded Disc Read Error. This can be solved by opening the unit and thoroughly cleaning the inside from hair, Dust, lent. Clean the laser with a q-tip lightly soaked with Rubbing alcohol. Close it up and try it. Chance are you fixed it. if your problem is more severe, please check out www.playstationclinic.com
