Ps2 is damaged


i fixed my ps2 alot of times. your problem is either in socket where u plug the power cord into your ps2. or you have a bad connection. what ever you do. dont take it apart while its plugged in. after you got it all apart. just the cover. then you can plug it in to see whats going on. there might even be a jam in the gears. or your ps2 will always shut off if it gets to hot. the fan might not be working. try it out first. if you find the problem. go to ebay.com and search for a part or sometimes you can find a whole ps2 that has broken parts in it that they cant fix or have the money to fix. if u buy a whole ps2. you can take what you need for parts. thats what i do. works everytime.

PS3 wont play disc's


If you have problem with loading your disk or some kind of media a most common error is Disk Read Error,or in a short way DRE.
Ps3 Laser is a very precise mechanism and optic and also a well none proble for the all machine right now on the Market.
Sony had the same problem before with PS2 and tried to fix the same issue all ready but without any luck at all.Actually i do believe is Part of the Market Strategy making the laser not to strong so people can buy new laser and keep the techical support alive.Most common error on Ps3 is DRE and some other like power supply Failure or Hd defective.
What is sad actually the fact the laser is Collapsing onthe spot.
On the ps2 you have some time to realize the laser is bad since the machine start not reading well or freezing during the game.On ps3 the laser stop working and that`s it.
I suggest to replace laser or try to clean first because sometimes if you are lucky the laser start working again

PS2 "Slimline" Can not read disk?


the problem I had is my ps2 slimline wouldn't play ps2 games. so I went on line and followed instruction took it all apart cleaned everything nothing. put it back together, for some reason I openned the ps2 where the disk goes there you can see the eye, I took a small flat heat screw driver the ones you use to fix eye glasses, and put it under the eye assembly and so gentle pushed it up. now it works perfect. not to hard you don't want to break it, I didn't even see it move. Hope this helps

PS2 50001/N DRE Two cogs


Hi Leostg,

 

Turn them both all the way to the lowest setting.  You then have to watch the position of the little hole on the cogs. They have to move in opposite directions.  Move them 4 clicks each in the raise drive direction. Test the Discs.  CD, PS1, DVD, PS2 silver, and PS2 Blue.  Keep raising the cogs equally 4 clicks, and testing until you get all the discs reading. You should be sure that everything is working on your Laser and dsic reading before you do this though.  Use a Magnifying glass and Flashlight to look at your Laser lens real close to see if you have any film or smudges.

Please do not vote until this is repaired, you only have one vote so please dont cheat me out of a solved vote. I have given you a good tip.
