Re: ps2 battery function

Yes you can, its just a power supply to save your configurations setting such as time, when the console is off. but you may to setup the setting if you have a change of default setting. ^_^

Playstation 2 doesn't want to read a disc or game

Sounds very probable that your laser has died!
From what i've experienced try to clean your laser often with a cd lens cleaner and don't lay your ps2 on the carpet, the dust/fur from the carpet will get into your ps2,then after a couple of months, it will start to leak into your ps2 cdrom drives, and then laser ,so clean your laser often.

I would like to know if the game syphon filter is still available to play online with ps2

Yes & No, Its still available to lay but someone else would want to be playing it also, But the truth of the matter is, Probably not, Sony has a clause that says with 90 days notice they will and can terminate a games online service, Since they now have the Sony network older ps2 games wont always work anymore.

Long Loads and Lagging

A couple things come to mind. If the lens is dirty, then there will certainly be issues with load times, or load failure. Check your game discs for scratches and scuffs. If a disc has a scratch or too many scuffs on it, it will make it difficult for the laser to read.
Clean your discs, and clean your ps2 lens with a basic ps2 laser cleaning kit. You should be able to find them anywhere.
I don't recommend cleaning the lens without a kit if you are not familiar with the internals of a PS2 or cleaning electronic components. If after cleaning your disc and lens it still gives you issues, there is an angle adjustment gear in the ps2, but we'll cross that bridge only if the cleaning doesn't work.

you were taking apart the ps2 since this is the fat ps2 im supposed to think first since your in the ps2 clean out the dust in it for future problems dust is why people keep throwing out fat ps2s and buying small ones they think its broke but its rather a dust problem clean it out the pute all the bolts in the right place if you dont have certain bolts in the ps2 doesnt start so have all the bolts in if its a ps2 slim try to unbolt all of the top and slide the lift thing in there scould be a little place in the top to just pop it in or bolt it in.... that could be a problem with the ribbon slide it back into the slot hopefully it still works the ribbon is really impotant its like a conector of the top and bottom part of the ps2 if all else fails get a repairman there are youssally reapair people at your local game place bestbuy, eb, gamestop ect.

My memory card slot 1 doesn't work can I change the unit so that games will save to slot 2 instead or how do I swap the slots in the unit


When you choose to save when you are in any game, on the save screen you can choose to save to slot 2 provided there is a memory card inserted in slot 2.

Hi Kakashi654, Open the case and Disassemble the PS2 as far as you can. Clean all the dust from the console. Exam the lens and clean it thoroughly. Removing the dust can improve the reset problem. Check with is you need further assistance.
