Slimline PS2 stops and makes funny noise during some Singstar songs


When I use various Singstar discs during some songs it cuts out and goes back to the main menu and makes a funny noise. I thought it may be the discs so I had them replaced but it kept doing it but this time on different songs which makes me think it the console.

Re: Slimline PS2 stops and makes funny noise during some...

Hello Hewitt,

Your Laser is most likely the cause of this problem. The lens and its frame work could be melting. This happens to all Slimline PS2's. To find out if this is your problem, you must take to console case apart to get a straight on view of the laser. Use magnifying glass to see the lens up close. It helps to also have a flashlight to shine on the lens while looking at it. You can tell if it is dirty or meltng very easy this way. Clean the lens if it is dirty. Use Glass Cleaner and q-tip. If the lens is not dirty or melting, clean the worm gear that moves the disc back and forth.

My ps2 is making a grinding noise and is not reading any discs, the discs hardly spin but when they do it grinds loudly. Im willing to take apart the ps2 to fix this, please help.

Hi mattr486!

Sadly it sounds like your disk lense has been damaged beyond repair. The only way to fix your PS2 is by getting tech support or ordering the replacement parts and repairing it yourself (not recommended).

Sorry if i can't be of further assistance.

My PS2 slim wont spin a disc it takes you to the game settings but nothing else

Well has it been dropped? If so more then likely the guide rail fall out of place and can easily be poped back in place. A good way to see if its your laser or guide rail is to fined the hole that when the lids closed this pin goes in the hole so the ps2 knows the lids closed and stick a piece of paper in that hole with lid opened. Now it should act like the lids closed. See if the laser produces a red beam or strange noises. Maybe even the little black piece at the back that stops the disc from spinning isnt working right. But dont get worried as theres a pin on the lid that makes the black piece pull back from the disc when lids closed so it might be stopping disc from spinng while its open. Several diffrent solutions need to know how you know its not spinning. If your just putting your head to it and cant hear it spinning then you will need to trouble shoot.

Fake cds

In order to play copied games, you will first have to mod your PS2. To avoid piracy, much of the necessary info on the original disc will be omitted during the copy phase. When you "mod" or put in a new chip, The PS2 can now bi-pass this info and continue to the game. Regardless of the type of PS2 you have, you must put in a mod chip to read back-ups.

Ps2 slimline problem

The laser housing is probably loose. Pretty annoying. It would probably take sending it in for repairs.

Game not working

okay, maybe the game is not compatible with the ps2, for eg if ur in europe they make the ps2's PAL compatible, if you're in USA they make em NTSC. other probs might be that clicking noise, doesnt sound too promising!! i dunno but dont get angry and smash the ps2 on the top, that wont help at all!! (like i did ^^)
