Question about Sony PlayStation 2 (PS2) Console
It's a recurrent problem. I play for while on my PS2 (like 20 hours on a week) and then my PS2 stop runnig games or DVD. It goes directly to the console browser. It happens three times. Each time I end up not playing for 2-3 months. That pause doesnt solution the problem. But when it began to read the game disc again, I simply don't why? Once was after moving to a new appartment. An other time was after trying to open it (to clean it) The model I have is the one with no tray but a lid on the top.
Hi Morquea, I believe you have the PS2 Slim model. This model has a laser with plastic housing and when it tries to read a disc for along time like hours, the lens housing begins to melt. You may be experiencing this and the process of melting is slow, so no way of knowing what wil happen since the laser adjusts itself to focus in on the media. One day or one disc might work, and another wont. I normally see Blue colored PS2 discs work and silver colored disc not work. This is a tell tale signof melting. Sony did not buiuld the slim as tough as the previous fat Versions. This helps them save money on Shipping and raw metarial costs. When the Laser automatically adjusts focus all day, it gets extremely hot and melts. You need a new laser. I can solve your problem there by replacing the laser for you for $32 plus shipping. contact me through www.playstatiopnclinic.com.
