He's right, it is a line, but it's not a big problem. If you keep playing with that wire, eventually that yellow part in your PS will come loose. It took me about 10 min. to fix mine with the same problem, and all I needed was a small philips screwdriver and a soldering iron. I bought my soldering iron for about $16 at Lowe's and it comes with batteries and soldering. First, you need to open your PS: you flip it over, pop those little square plastic covers out (only 6 of them). I used my finger nail to pop them out; now, you'll notice that there's a total of 8 of those square-type things, don't worry about the ones in front corners (right underneath Controller Port 1 and Remote Controller Receiver). Once you do all these you'll find 6 screws, so use your screwdriver to get'em out. Flip your PS over again. Now you'll be able to pop the top cover out, just be careful, it's a little tricky but you'll make it. With the cover out of the way, you can see now the inside of your PS. Try to locate a screw between the two Controller Ports, it'll need to come out. Once you get that screw out of your way, remove the bottom cover carefully; make sure you remove that board thing where the Reset/Power button lays from the cover as well. Now you have a naked PS haha. Flip your PS over locate where the power cable is plugged in (it's like a yellow square-thing). Looking at it from the bottom, try to put some presure on it with your finger and try to move just a little bit and you'll notice that one of the solderings holding the yellow thing together to the green board is cracked loose (if not both). So now it's time to get that soldering iron to work. If I recall, it'll take about 30 to 45 sec. for soldering iron to get to it's working temperature. Once it's ready to work put presure again with your finger to that yellow part and try to solder bond that cracked soldering back together. I did it by heating the soldering touching the green board so it'd hold the yellow part in place. I'm sure you'll do good, just be pacient. Use your finger again to try moving it. Once it doesn't move anymore IT'S DONE. Just get those covers back together, first the bottom one, then the screw between the Controller Ports, and last the top cover with the 6 screws and covers. Hopefully this will work for you as it worked for me.

SOURCE: Slimline PS2 only plays PS1 Games and not PS2

Clean the LAsers Lens with Q-tip lightly dampened with Glass cleaner, then dry the lens. Try it see if that gets it going again.

If not your lasers lens and supporting frame is probably melting down. You will need a new laser.
Click on "repair directory" at the bottom of this screen. Then click on "Video Game consoles" Pick a good repair shop.

The cable isprobably faulty or damaged. Try replacing it with another one. The socket on the back marked network is a ethernet port which allows players to connect to the PSN or Playstation Network allowing you to game other people around the world with supported games

Weve got a toshiba tv model 289s4A & want to plug our ps2 into it, cant find how go get the av channel on the tv. We have connected the av cables but when you change channels on the tv, theres no...


If you have the remote, look for the source button. It should allow you to toggle the settings.

Otherwise they are usually after channel 2 as in Hdmi, Av1, AV2 etc..

Good luck

Ps2 scph 77001 won't play backups on swap magic 3.6


This is a problem that has too many IF's in it lol. Let's take it from the top shall we?

When you said that you owned other PS2's were they the thick ones or the slim ones. Swap magic works best in the "thick older" models. In these new slimline ones it's got issues. That model number you posted belongs to a slimline model.

So since you're using a slimline model, I have to ask, Have you blocked the 2 sensors that you need to block in order to use swap magic. The slimline models are not like the older thick models. You need to block two sensors under the flip top so when you open the flip top the PS2 still thinks there is no swapping going on. If you have not blocked these sensors head over to youtube.com and start watchin vids with seach "how to block slim PS2 sensors" or "how to block slimline PS2 sensors" out of the three sensors you only really need to block two. If you have not done this at all, that is reason why it's not working. On older PS2 models you used a slidecard or some form of a flip top to swap out your disks. Nothing has changed on these slimline models. The PS2 still needs to be tricked out so it doesn't think you're swapping disks in and outa the system.

Hope that helps,

I can't seem to get my ps2 silver multi tap to work


first of all make sure that the multitap is compatible because some multi tap for the thick console doesn't work on the slimline type

you can always check your console's manual for the compatible model of multitap for your console

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

It sounds like you might of messed up the av multi out plug try jiggling it and sometimes it could be the tv or vcr you plug it into, if you still have a warranty on it call sony. if not theres probaly some game places that you could call in your area to see if they can fix it. Sorry thats all i can think of..
