Re: Play Station 2 Slim Model

Its called a spindle and you might have to replace the whole spindle motor assembly. Search online for one, there are loads of sites selling PS2 part (make sure you get the right model number or your new part might not work).

Alternately, if there are any computer/electronics fairs in your area you could try there. I needed a spindle motor for a scrap machine I was refurbing a few months ago and bought one from a computer fair for £2.

Here is a video tutorial on how to take your PS2 apart to replace the bit.

Is there a reset button on the back of a sony play station 2 or power button???

If you are talking about the PS2 "FAT" or "SLIM"? The fat has a switch in the back that cuts all power, but the slim stays in standby mode unless you unplug the system.

My PS2 Slim says "please

Form your post I can clearly know that you don't have any problem with your Play Station.

The problem might be with the Digimon world 4 Disc. You should buy a new digimon world 4 DVD orginal or pirated it up to ur choice. if not you can download the game iso file from this link and write it to a DVD with the help of software like DVD decrypter. Dvd decrypter can b downloaded from the following link

it might not play cause the bigger system is alil bit older tech so the laser might not be able to read it but thats not normally the case probably the laser is dirty on the bigger system some duster might help to blow dust off the laser but you might have to take it apart to clean it

I cannot play my dvd game on my ps2 , but my friends can play my dvd game on his ps2

Fat and Slim PS2's generally have different playability with disks. a slim, for example, does not want to play old blue-backed disks, though it will easily read PSX black backs. I'll need more information on the disk and the PS2 to give a complete answer.

Please insert ps2 format disc?

Try inserting the disc in your computer. If it reads its fine. Then look if the Slus...... is compatible.maybe thats why it doesn't play. your ps2 must have an old bios system even if slim.

ps2 can play dvds but xbox needs a store bought xbox dvd remote to play dvds
the ps2 slim and the ps2 normal have a lot in common so thwere is not much difference, but the slim has a fliptop lid and the fat ps2 has a open and shut slide drive.If I were you I would get the slim because it is the only one you can get brand new nowadays. The xbox may have halo 1 and 2 but sometimes there are freezes on certain xboxes.
