Question about Sony PlayStation 2 (PS2) Console

Open Question

My son spilled his juice on the PS2 last night. It was already switched off at the mains. I have taken the back off & cleaned it out but it still won't read discs. It just comes up with the system configuration screen - what do you suggest.

SOURCE: Our PS2 was dropped and now won't read disc

It looks as if your PS2 has died. I'm sorry to say, but since the firmware boots and it's just the disc error message, it lokos like a hardware error that is likely irreparable. This is the best "solution" i can give! please dont blame me! Just trying to help... but you can find great used ones for cheap now. Good Luck!

SOURCE: ps2 slimline disc reading error

HI Heytev,

 

Three things. 

  1. The laser could be melted from extended attempts at reading an unreadable disc. If so, You need a new laser.
  2. The Disc is not spinning which could be a motherboard failure. If so, you need a new motherboard
  3. Dust has infiltrated the laser and contaminated the Mirrors or Pickup. If so, you need a new laser.

Ok now that you see the reasons, it is more likely you need a new laser. go to Ebay and buy you one. They are fairly simple to change. Call or email me when you get a New laser.  My information is at www.playstationclinic.com  Hope this helps you.

SOURCE: ps2 not reading disc.

First you need to define what it IS and IS NOT reading. You'll need to run some tests.

Test 1: use a regular music CD (NON BURNED) (RETAIL) disk and put that into your ps2 and see if it starts playing it.

Test 2: insert a regular DVD (NON BURNED) (RETAIL) disk and try to play that.

If neither will play then it is one of two things. Your laser lens is out of alignment, or your laser lens is damaged.

If one plays but not the other, it is the potentiometer pots on the back of the PS2 lens that need adjusting. You can read more about that on one of my other posts ::.HERE.::

SOURCE: PS2 was dropped, now disc won't spin and can't be read.

I just looked at a friend's PS2. Same story, tripped over cord, unit fell to floor. Unit powers up and sys. config. screen comes on but the drive didn't seem to be spinning up. Opened the case and found that the shaft of the drive motor for the laser tray had popped out of it's centering retainer ( little black bushing/holder). With the top off the unit, looking at the unit from the front, on the right side in the rear corner you'll see the motor. The worm shaft (bronze colored rod) runs towards the front of the unit. Where it ends it should sit centered in a black plastic holder, if it's off to the side a little pressure will pop it back in. Put the cover back on, and power it up, you should hear the drive spinning up. If it does you should be set. Hope this helps.

My son spilled gatoraid onrange juice on my iphone 4s


If you have already tried using the iphone it might be too late to help. But I would try putting it into a bag of rice for a few days. Sounds dumb but it dries the iphone out. If it does not work after that its RIP Iphone 4S. Goodluck!

I spilled orange juice on my pc keyboard unscrewed the screws in the back took it apart really sticky what should i clean it with


It is impossible to clean it, especially when the computer was powered up when you spilled orange juice on the keyboard, it most likely shorted out some components in the keyboard.
I suggest you buy a new keyboard.

Hi Bunny.
Now, about your oven.
If you spilled some juice into the oven on Thanksgiving. It will be dried up by now. However the lower burner in your oven should have a shield over it so that juice doesn't get onto the burner.
If the oven is now working properly in bake mode, then the same burner will work in self-cleaning as well. Whenever you turn on a gas appliance you will smell an an oder for just a moment.
Here is the reason. Gas is odorless naturally. The gas company intentionally puts what is called an "ODORANT" into the gas so that anyone can smell a leak. Sometimes, they put too much oderant in and they get quite a few phone calls about leaks. Of course, when there is a real leak, they can also find out about it and take care of before there is any danger.
Your caution in not listening to your son's advice is wise. "Just do it" applies to Nike shoes, and sports. When it comes to safety with regard to natural gas, electricity, or any fuel (like gasoline) "Just do it" can be just fatal. Remind your son of that.
I hope I've helped you. If you have any more questions of me, you are very welcome to contact me through this site.
Best Regards,
Mark

Hi,
Did you or anyone else spilled anything on them? Do you have a pet that may stepped on your keyboard?
What you can do is to take out on of the problematic keys. Disconnect from power and use a small ruler to pop the key out. See if anything is under there. Maybe hair or food. Do not shake your laptop as this can lead to other problems. Get a dry cloth and clean the key base and underneath the key. Reinsert the key and try it again. If this works do the same for the other keys.

Keyboard suddenly got weird


A keyboard is nothing more than a collection of small switches under the keys. A liquid will short out between the contacts of the switches and is the same as hitting the key. There are still fluids inside they keyboard circuitry. By using it like this it can short out the keyboard and ruin it. It needs to be taken out and cleaned and dried throughly before it is ruined. (might already be ruined). You can usually find replacement keyboards on places like ebay.com

Hi,

Taken it back to your repairing shop, ask for brushing of the motherboard with CTC, and also proper cleaning of Cam and Sound points. Hope so this will work.

Like no disc will work on my ps2 only some


This happend to my son last night. He could not get any games to work. You ned to get a can of air the stuff you would use for the key boards for you computer to clean. Open the tray of the ps2 and spray air in there. There is dirt on the laser that reads the disk. If that does not work you need to open it to repair it. I have a link if you need to do that if this does not work. The caned air fixed my sons though it is 7 years old.

Good Luck
