Question about Sony PlayStation 2 (PS2) Console

1 Answer

Playstation 2 doesnt work

I accidentally just pressed the refresh button, so i dont want to explain everything about my problem all over again. in a nutshell, my ps2 dropped.  the sound from the game that i was playing immediately stopped, and the disc came out. further examination showed that the motor was going (i could hear it)  but it wasn't turning the disc-spinner.  please tell me what to do, and possibly if i will have to take it to the repairshop or whatever.  PLEASE HELP! <:'(

You are posted in the Big PS2 section, so I hope you got a Big PS2, not a slim. If you do have a slim, I think your motherboard is shot. If you do have the big PS2, you need to open th case up and Disassemble it to find out whats wrong.  Your probably have a SCPH-50001 and when you dropped it some of the plastic inside broke. 

You need to remove the 8 screws on the bottom, which are hidden by square screw covers. You can pop the screw covers up with a knife blade.  Remove the Warranty label on the cases seam next to where the power cable hooks in. Lift the case from the back slightly and pull it forward just enough to clear the CD drawer. Then roll the over cover counter clockwise being carfeul not pull reset/eject button cable loose. In this motion lay the case cover to the right side upside down. 

Now remove the little screws holding the cd Drive cover on.  Yo may ned to use a screwdriver to put in the rectangle holes and pry outward to release the catch at the back of the CD drive cover.  See if you see any damage and write back a comment here . Hope this helps.

 

I can fix it for a reasonable price for you if you're in the USA.  www.playstationclinic.com

Can't load any game, coming up with 8001002b error code, changed the laser today, been playing it for 1 hour after the laser replaced but could not read the disk afterwards.


Step one:- Have you're system on standby (off) and press and hold the power button until it turns off and on, do not take you're finger off until it has turned off again.


Step Two:- Now press and hold the power button again and when you hear two beeps let go of the button. You will be taken to a screen with about 5 different options.


Step Three:- Select option two which does a system restore, dont worry you're data will not be lost. After it has completed, go back to the XMB and try a game. If it does not work still repeat the above process and try option 3. Then option four if it still doesnt work and then 5. Option 5 WILL erase you're hard drive.


After all this if it still doesn't work, ring sony, explain you have done these process's and they will take a few details off you to deliver a new system next day to you.


WARNING!!!!!!


Back up all you're save data and anything you wish not to loose.

My playstation 3 turns on but the av multi out doesnt work so i cant see or hear anything.


Try resetting the display by doing the following:

Step 1. Turn the PS3 off into standby (red light on)

Step 2 Press and hold the power button. It will beep when you first press it then beep again 5 seconds later. Release the power button when you hear this second beep.

Step 3 Wait for your PS3 to start

Hope this helps

How to reset an ps3 controller ? ive done da resset button thing but it dont work


Hello,

You can also try the steps below. Its from PlayStation Forum:

1. Turn off Playstation®3.
2. Hold the power button down; the system will turn on and turn off once again.
3. Once the System has been shutdown, re-press you finger until you hear 2 consecutive beeps
4. When you hear the 2 beeps take finger off power button.
5. You will be prompted to plug in your controller via USB and then hit the PS button
6. The Recovery menu will pop up.

The current Recovery Menu supports:
• Restart System: Restarts the PLAYSTATION®3 System.
• Restore Default Settings: Reset all system settings back to default.
• Restore File System: Checks for corrupt/missing system files.
• Rebuild Database: Rebuilds the OS for the PLAYSTATION®3.
• Restore PS3 System: Fresh restore; Deletes everything and starts from Scratch.
• System Update: Update the PLAYSTATION®3 System

Good luck.

• System Update: Update the PLAYSTATION®3 System

If the above steps still does not solve the problem, then I think will have to update your Ps3.

Update your PS3 (in the settings menu the 1st option).

Go on the internet browser on the PS3 then go on the menu press triangle then on one of them there are delete cookies and the delete the others as
well as cookies.

You could also try this as well: put the PS3 on then press the eject button (with no disc in) then hold it and switch the PS3 off at the back with your finger on the eject button still holding it, then put it back on and the fan test should be working this may cool it down. It might be over heating.

But if your problem is not still solved, then maybe you should call sony for further assistance.

I wish you good luck
