Re: PS2

Dear rafe, You will probably need a new laser or possibly need to clean it. I dont know how old your playstation is but all lasers wear out and its time for it to be replaced with a new one. Look, if this solution does not help you and you feel uncomfortable opening your ps2 console drop it down to fixyourgadget and we will fix it for you. Please Note: When opening your sony ps2 you void the warranty. Hope this helps, Dhillon Dude

Im clueless

This sounds like a problem with the DVD player drive and laser. The Drive chip on the slim can overpower the lasers focus and cause heat to build up around the lasers lens. This does absolutely melt the laser lens and its mount. I suggest you replace the entire DVD drive.

If you are not comfortable doing this, click on "Repair Directory" at the bottom of this screen. On the next page, Click on "Video Game Consoles". Select a good Repair shop.

Game not working

okay, maybe the game is not compatible with the ps2, for eg if ur in europe they make the ps2's PAL compatible, if you're in USA they make em NTSC. other probs might be that clicking noise, doesnt sound too promising!! i dunno but dont get angry and smash the ps2 on the top, that wont help at all!! (like i did ^^)

Screen is black

Hi 123helpme,

It sounds like your PS2 is not booting up. If you get opening screen with no disc in the PS2 your motherboard is botting up ok. If your not getting the screen with the circling dots when you start up the PS2 your motherboard has a problem. If your PS2 does boot up and the screen goes balck after the disc is running, then your Disc is corrupted, and you will have to get a new Game disc. Please post some more details as to what exactly is happening to your PS2. We will get you a solution. You may need to send your PS2 to the Playstation Clinic for repair. Go click on "repair directory" at the bottom of this screen. Click on Video Game console repair services.
