Question about Sony PlayStation 2 (PS2) Console

Black screen, tray won't work

Last night while playing a game, the sound went out on the game and we lost all controls. After turning it off and then trying to restart, the screen stays black, won't boot up and the tray motor will not engage. I've been inside our PS2 to clean it and have also replaced the laser eye but that was sometime early last year. What would cause it to stop all of a sudden? Is it something I can fix or do we need to purchase a new one?

    Have cleaned it out and still it won't boot up. The fan runs and light foes from red to green, but there is no blue light for the tray. I'll check the motherboard again.

You may be able to repair this. Open it up and clean out all the dust and lint. Be sure nothing is on the motherboard causing a short circuit. Tr it out and see if it recoveres after your clean up all the dust and lint from the motherboard.

I was playing my playstation last night but now when i put a game in it will sound as if its reading it but wont let me play it

When you turn your ps3 on and are at the home screen, hold the power button in front of the disc tray and it will bring up a menu on the TV. Choose to reformat the HDD, this will take several hours and make erase saved game data, therefore you may want to create a backup of your data through the settings menu.

This should fix the problem. If not you should contact the technical support.

Screen Goes Black When Game Is Inserted

Your laser could be bad, that is my idea for the situation. Your laser probably loads to a certain point and then just stops for some reason. You can try adjusting the potentiometers up 10 percent if your technologically advanced or try and replace the whole laser/drive.
