Overheated, or really broken?

That was summer, but it wasnt that hot...we're playing with my ps2, but then of a sudden turned off...we quickly checked it, then it smelled like burning plastics, or sumthing. it turned on again, but this time, cant read the just left a round scratch on my cd near the center..seems like it was scratched while running, and it hapend on other cd's too...

my ps2 starts, but doesnt recognize my games now than it usually does...

now we repaired it to a tchnician...

i just wana ask if i could stil fix that one on my own, rather than spending money for its repairs...

Re: overheated, or really broken?

Sounds like the laser is touching the cd, some times the disk on the motor will slide down causing this and ps2 had problems with the motor ic buring out.

I think your ps2 may be overheating. Try checking to see if it heats up real hot.

My slim playstation 2 is not working need answer quick

Haha i understand your distress :) if your slim ps2 is not turning on, first check and make sure that all your wires and stuff are all plugged in to EVERYTHING. also, make sure your outlet works too. corroded electrical outlets wont work. Also, make sure your PS2 cooler is not blocked in any sort of way. if you need any more issues, just ask :) ~~RJ~~

PS2 Slim will not play

hi Calex988,
Unlike the PS2 original, PS2 slim doesnt have a fan.
Playing it for 2 days, it most likely overheated and burnt something inside. I would return the console and get a replacement, if you have warrently.

PS2 Picture Problem

Hi MG86,

Most PS2 games are dark and auto brightness controls will casue your LCD tv to brighten up automatically in response the dark video coming from PS2 games. I suggest you get into the menu settings of your TV and find a setting that will shut off the auto picture controls.

This is because the initial read zone on the PS2 is now needed to get the PS1 game past the boot stage. I've seen this done and it's simliar to a hot-swap disc. The only solution is really a new PS2, but good luck in continuing this little "cheat" on the error: it should work indefinitely
