Question about Sony PlayStation 2 Slimline Console
well erm.. my sony slimline ps2 (black) is about 2 and a half years old.. and its going through some problems.. one day about half a year ago it wouldnt spin any disc (cd, dvd or ps1/ps2 game) and everytime i pressed the reset button it just made a jolting sound.. so i took it to my computer wizz neighbour and he cleaned the laser.. (that im guessing reads the discs) and i took it home - it worked and it read all discs, then about 2 months after the same issue appeared, so i took it to him and got the laser cleaned.. and so on.. and now every couple of weeks the laser needs cleaning.. now i have cleaned the laser and it wont read discs no matter what now.. ..
what do i do?.. how can i fix this?..
also... about a week ago ( when it decided to read a disc ) i was playing a game.. and i died and got a tad stressed so i smashed the top of the ps2 slimline ( the disc flap thingy part.. :|..) and it pushed the spindle down.. so when i reads discs and spins them it stratches on the surface of the inside of the ps2.. however, if i put the slimline ps2 upside down.. it doesnt scratch. so i have been doing that for the past week.. and now its decided NOT to play ANY discs ..
so please.. tell me how i can fix this....
Since you "smashed" which made things much worse (been there, done that). It was probrably fixable but now that it scratches I can only assume that the lens (laser) is scratched and damaged "beyond repair". The only suggestion I have, if you really want to fix it is to replace the lens and probrably the disc tray too. Fot the trouble it's worth too fix and the fact that there is no guarantee that it will even work after you fix it, your best bet is too buy a new one or at least a refurbished one.
