    i dont think that is the problem becouse it will play the games its just that some stuff wont work/load

  • jperlis1995 Apr 20, 2009

    by some stuff i mean some chracters

  • jperlis1995 Apr 20, 2009

    also i forgot to mention that the reset button wont reset only turn it off or on

  • jperlis1995 Apr 20, 2009

    so there is no way to fix it. so its gone it bit the dust

  • jperlis1995 Apr 20, 2009

    there are also some really big/DEEP scratches on the game that were not there before should i maybe just buy a new game and playstation

  • jperlis1995 Apr 20, 2009

    excuse me sir i have taken further investigation and noticed that on the game that sometimes comes up as not inside the system is very scratched up and mortal kombat has some Deep scratches maybe if i bought a new mk cd it could work. I am really hoping that i am exagerating this though the reset button problem is there plz tell me if this might be a option


    also yes i think i have had this ps2 for 3 years and i bought it used


  • jperlis1995 Apr 20, 2009

    thank you i can live with no reset i am just a hardcore mk fan you have helped me well thank you for your patience

    Hi,

    When you say, some stuff ,



    what do you mean please ?

  • Richard Finney
    Richard Finney Apr 20, 2009

    Hi,



    There are no updates for the device, to fix any glitches,

    By the sound of what your saying, disc reading problems,

    and will not fix by cleaning,

    You will need to replace the laser,

    Regards

    Hi,



    How old is the PS2 please ?

    Age is a factor on devices.

    They only have a certain lifecycle.

    If 2/3 years old and gets plenty of use, this is wear and tear.

    Hi,

    You could replace the laser yes, $150/$200



    But wear and tear on the button, will be hard to replace.



    you may have to live with the button issue, if you fix the laser.

    Cost up the price of a laser fitting in, then you will know

    cost of repair versus new system.

    Hi,



    Yes fixing this would be false economy, it would only give it abit more life, and you want 5 years of gaming,



    It is what's called a money pit, you could throw money at it all day, but this will go, that will go, and $300 dollars later, you will have wished you had bought new.

    As a Pc technician, In my professional opinion,

    I would buy a new one and not waste the money on it.



    Sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but I have to tell you the truth, good or bad.



    All the best to you

    Regards

    Richard.

    Hi,

    You have done well I think, second hand, 3yrs old then,

    Yes buying a new disc would be ok, this is not too much expense.



    Let me list the costs for you.

    New laser $150/$200

    new case because you cannot replace the button, $100/$150

    Plus labour from a pro to do it for you. $100/$150 (( this cheap ))

    And in 6 months possibly something else goes $$$$$$$$

    Do the math my friend, it's a money pit.



    But the game, buying a new game, yes this is woth it, because if you do get another PS2/3, the game is useful to you then.



    Regards.

    Richard.

    Hi,

    I am here to help you get fixed.



    But good advice too, if it is not fixable,



    Try the disc in a different system,

    if it works great, first time, and no problems.

    You have just confirmed that the laser is faultering.



    All the best to you

    Regards

    Ric.
