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.

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.

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.
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.
