Hello, my Sharp Cd-sw200 no longer recognizes the cds that are in there and none of the 5 cd drawers will open. Everything else works fine. Unit is approx 3 years old and very gently used until 4 months...

Changers are the worse of the reliable units and Sharp is not among the best brands to get. The unit will need service by a Technician.
If none of the 5 drawers will not open how is it possible that the units works fine?

I want to play duplicate dvds on my ps2 but i am not able to do what should i do can i do it at home

  1. If you have backed up a game for ps2, you're going to need a mod chip or swap magic for your ps2 so it can read the disc, so first things first, BUY A MODIFICATION TOOL!!!
  2. 2You should try using Swap Magic, because it's the easiest, and you won't need to modify your PlayStation too much.
  3. 3But if you use SWAP MAGIC, you will also need a special mod chip, SLIDE TOOL, or a FLIP TOP COVER, you can learn more about those on the swapmagic website
  4. 4Read directions on the installation of mod chip, and swap magic before you do anything (you don't want to mess up, or else your ps2 won't work properly).
  5. 5Install your modchip/flip top cover/slide tool. (This is important, because it allows the disc to be removed and "swapped" without the PlayStation knowing).
  6. 6Follow directions that came with your swap magic discs, and you're basically ready to go!
  7. 7HOW TO USE SWAP MAGIC,Note you must have Swap magic 3.6 to boot on slimline ps2 and you need to do a none solder modding(no soldering)

Purchase a flip top (recommended). Let's assume you have the flip top and a copied ps2 game
  1. 1Now Insert the swap magic disc into the ps2,
  2. 2Press power on button until screens comes up.
    • With option that says load cd open the top cover of the flip top.
    • And take out the cd when it stops spinning.
  3. 3Now insert your Copied game and click Load CD.
  4. 4its that easy

All my controller buttons dont want to work but the controll looks fine all the buttons click ok its like new but it wont work

Well, there might be several things wrong with your controller. Now, that being said the most likely thing wrong with it is the connectivity. Feel free to just stop reading if any of these steps fix your problem
1. Check that the cord is properly plugged in to the correct port.
2. Take the cord out of your PS2 and check all the connectors (they look like brass strips on the inside of the plug). Are they bent? dirty? do some appear to be missing?
3. If yes, try cleaning with a can of compressed air, then plug back in.
4. Reboot your PS2 then re-plug it in.
5. If none of these things work, or if the light in the center isn't on, then your best bet is to take the controller back to the place of purchase and ask for a refund.

Worked But Doesnt Work The Next Day

Yes I see your problem!
1)Did You Drop the ps2 at all?
2)Maybe Your using the wrong disk...(like old ps1 or copied ps2 games)
3)Maybe it just stopped working...if You got it recently go get it exchanged or fixed(check the warranty)...
4)if it doesnt turn on then its most likely broken or messed up...
5)if the game doesnt work it may be scratched or need to be cleaned
6)clean the ps2!get a computer/game console sprayer...
7)they also have cd cleaning devices that get rid of the scratches (not too big or long though)

Ps2 dual shock2 controller buttons not working

Removed accumulated dust sticking on the board were the buttons touches.use cotton balls with alcohol or use clean damp cloth.If nothing's happen check the cord I'm sure it is twisted badly, open your ps2 use this controller and try to twist back the twisted cord if it stopped sometimes when your twisting it then you have to replaced the cord(make sure that your using the original ps2 controller not imitation)pls. rate

Adjusting the lens height using the gear

first do what i did. get a dvd movie,a ps one game,a cd based ps2 game (timesplitters,rune,dynasty warriors 2,half life)a dvd based ps2 game, and a scratched ps2 game. first adjust the azimuth(the torx screw to the left of the laser} make sure you use a cue tip and 91% alcohol on the lens and under the lens(you have to remove the black cover off the laser). I just got a broken ps2 for 5 bucks and that made it work perfectly.make the azimuth adjustments in 1/8 turns. try all games and especially the dvd movie carefully pull the white plastic wheel out of the top cover for the dvd drive. and pop that on the disk while its in the drive. turn it on and note what happens. if a disk is in the drive before it's powered on you should never see the browser it should just boot.If not you have problems. once all disks are booting good get a problem disk (I used a scratched tony hawk 3) and if the audio skips or freezes adjust the white cog wheel counterclockwise in 5 click intervals until it works perfect. if you are lucky it will work like new if not you might have a laser voltage problem and to fix that you need a variable scope ososcillator ( i know i missplelled it) under the laser is 2 pots to adjust the voltage for the cd laser and the dvd laser. the left is the cd one if its facing you. you can find the proper waveform pattern online in various places.i would just buy a Used ps2 because there preety chaep and definetly cheaper than the stuff needed to adjust the voltage correctly.IF YOU TRY TO ADJUST THE LASER YOU MAY BURN IT OUT.I did on my first one but since my friend was using it as a window stop and i got it for free i donn't care.So hopefully it works out for you guys. if i were you just buy a SEGA DREAMCAST it has none of these problems and is cheap as hell..............................................
