Question about Sony PlayStation 2 Slimline Console

1 Answer

Please.. help me... my ps2 slimine is comepletely ruined..

Hello :),

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....

Re: please.. help me... my ps2 slimine is comepletely...

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.

Black screen, no audio no video

Wow.... Never heard this one before....... I would try using your ps2 with different audio-video cables (maybe just from a friends ps2) If the other cables work than all you have to do is go to your nearest playstation supplier and get new audio-video cables for your ps2. (Walmart Usually sells them)

Hope this helped!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

It seems you may need a new laser, as it isn't reading the disc.

Ps2 fan

Is your machine a old one or a slimline version??
Slimline version have a micro fan and can be replace it.The old one is even better because are cheap and you have a lot choice.Just make sure you get the right one.I believe is a ball bearing fan so if the balls inside get dirty or sticky ..or just defective from nature....nothing more you can do then get a new part.the noise is cming from micro vibration in rotation and all that 2000-3000 rpm in a minute make a lot noise

Disk read error on slim ps2 scph 75003

hello pauldonp...if this is an early version of the slimline they had a problem with over voltage which inturn took out the laser.your only option may be to replace the laser . sony did bring out a mod for this..i preferr the real old version of the ps2 as they had all separate boards and if one went faulty you didnot have to replace the lot ,also the lasers were a lot cheaper than the later models .in the slim lines the lasers are not all that expensive .they do take a bit of setting up as you have to know the ohms setting on the laser for each model..hope this helps
