Question about Sony PlayStation 2 (PS2) Console
For your information, my warranty has expired. I need a troubleshooting guide to help me with the following problems: 1) Whenever I turn on my ps2-slim, the red LED turns green for a sec and then turns back to red. This happens often. 2) When everything turns on, the DVD does not spin and the console hangs and the reset button doesnt work. This also happens often. 3) When the game turns on the screen is somehow trimmed from the bottom and right side and nothing seems to fix it. It stays like this all the time.
Hi NateQ, Sorry about no one paying attention to your problem for so long. I just got started about a month ago. I have been repairing video Game consoles for over a decade though. Your problem is that your slim has a melted down laser and lens assembly. The unit is dirty. You will need a new disc drive and a thorough cleaning to get it back in service. The problem about the power light is due to excessive dust buildup shorting out the components on the motherboard. The video output is also comprimised by dust and dirt. The disc spinning is possibly comprimised by hair wrapped around the disc drive spindle. If you want, I can thoroughly detail clean your PS2 slim and replace the disc drive for $38 plus shipping both ways. Contact Repairtech@playstationclinic.com
