PS2 - Problem

Hi there, not sure if you got my question before, but my PS2 Wide model - freezes after playing WRC 4 - after about 10mins - the "game" picture will either simply freeze or freeze with a green flicker.

Any advice on this one - Thanks Rob

Re: PS2 - Problem

This problem occurs when there is some problem with the laser lens, It needs a cleaning or the laser has worn out. Try GENTLY swabbing the lens with rubbing alcohol and then blowing dry with canned air. If you are inclined to open the system and it is out of warrenty you can do so. Hope this be of some help/idea. Pls post back should you need additional information.

My PS2 won't run my games.

HI, you will need to preform a lens cleansing by using a cleaning disc. try to recover lens function be cleaning the lens with a good len cleaning disc. if the lens cleaner dose not fix this issue, this will confirm optical lens assembly failure and, you will need to replace the lens assembly in this case.

Just to make sure that this isn't a control fault, unplug the PS2 for 5 minutes. if the unit still freezes up or , the unit will not play the disc, replace the optical lens assembly.

Have you tried other discs? Try copying the disc into a DVD-R and see if this works...I've tried this solution personally on my modded PS2 Slim and it worked fine...hoped this works for you too...

PS2 Makes Sounds and Keeps Pausing Games

Hi Ebridges2,


The Game your playing is probably a Blue colored media.  That is ones that spin so fast.  You console has become dusty and loaded with lint probably.  You can open the case and clean up the insides. Also while your in there, remove the ocver and polish up the lasers lens.  This will probably get you back in business. If you do nto have success, contact me at Repairtech@   I run The Playstation Clinic at  If you have a Slim Model it will cost more than the big model to repair.  The slim model is $41 full refurbish including return shipping inside the USA.  The big Fat PS2 Versions are $36 including return shipping.
