Hi,the unit needs to have the laser reader lens cleaned but DON'T use regular rubbing alcohol. Get pure stuff....the rubbing type leaves a glare on glass and plastic lenses. Also ,the chrome rails that the laser moves along need to be cleaned and lubed with liquid silicone. This method clears read problems most of the time. That will do.
take the Ps2 gaming console to nearest Sony service center the problem is with lens it sometimes run quiet well but sometimes got hang you can do one little thing & try it take any of the Ps2 games which are getting freeze while playing take Colgate toothpaste the regular one take a little bit of it & apply on the game disc rub it on the disc & then clean & wipe out with a clean smooth cloth & clean properly after cleaning the disc will look good neat in condition but please make sure no particle is left after cleaning & now play the disc on Ps2 & see if it still get freeze then their is a problem with console better check it at nearest Sony service center for trouble free working
Sounds like you need to get your money back ..the resurfaceing can also do more bad than good But a little trick lightly rub a crayon over the disk ,,old pantyhose works great rub it off from center out then try your disk ,,have saved many good games that way
I don't want to put you down or nothing but, buying the slim ps2 wasn't a great idea. If you bought the original ps2 it would've been better. The thing about the thin ps2 is the hd is small, the laser tends to become weaker faster. Go get the ps2 checked out someplace.
Hi Emily, this is the ABSOLUTE fix to that problem.
Put 1 piece of tape (2 pieces total) on each side of the hole thats in the center. The 2 pieces of tape should be parallel to each other and as close to the hole without touching it.
Use regular clear "invisible" tape. If it does not work with just 1 piece, add another piece of tape directly on top of the other pieces to make it thicker. OR just use the sticky part of a post-it which is a little thicker than regular tape.
I tried this the 1st time, & have not had any further problems for 6 years!
