Okay, are you using the original PS2? If you are then it more then likely is the age of the console. The original PS2 console actually can't play some of the games that were made after the PS2 slim was released. If your using the slim than the only thing i can advise is to try using a laser lens cleaner disc and see if that helps :)
Sorry, I didn't quite understand the question, so are you actually using the wireless PS2 controller on the PS3?? Or it is for the PS2?? When i had a PS2, I brought a 'Logitech' controller for it and it worked well for about 6months, then after that the analogues started playing up and going funny. Same thing with the 'MadCats' PS2 contorller. Now I have a PS3, and I just brought a new SONY PS3 Dual shock controller and works perfect. The logitech one is half the price, but i trust Sony more than other brands coz it is more reliable. I dunno if this helps, but if you're willing to spend abit more it's actually worth it. You can check on eBay for an original PS2/3 controller which would cheaper than buying one in the stores. Cheers~
your lense is more than likely defragmented jacob and you should never take any system apart okay so what you wanna do is if your warrenty is still in effect dont tell sony you took it apart just send it in for a refurbisment if it isnt you need to look around online for a ps2 slim lense okay
Something has to be different between FFXII and another PS2 game. This could be color of the media side, or it could be CD or DVD format. Most likely it is CD format and your CD laser diode is failing. Try a Music CD to see if it will work. If it is a PS2 slim, I suggest a new laser.
ps2 can play dvds but xbox needs a store bought xbox dvd remote to play dvds the ps2 slim and the ps2 normal have a lot in common so thwere is not much difference, but the slim has a fliptop lid and the fat ps2 has a open and shut slide drive.If I were you I would get the slim because it is the only one you can get brand new nowadays. The xbox may have halo 1 and 2 but sometimes there are freezes on certain xboxes.
This is the most common problem with any ps2 the only thing you can try is cleaning the laser lense its best to use an actual lense cleaner in the form of a disk. As it only reads compact disks this does mean your laser is on the way out but try cleaning lense and try again but you might find the problem remains. The problem with you ps2 the slim one is that you cant adjust the laser the older bigger ps2 had a dial on the back of the laser tray that you could turn and adjust the height of the laser doing this got a couple more months usage out of the ps but the slimer one doesnt have this dial as they used newer lasers that couldnt be adjusted in anyway. If cleaning doesnt make the ps2 any better then you need to replace the laser but the problem you have with this is if you buy a new laser its easy enough to fit yourself but buying a new laser means its going to need calibrating this isnt something you can do yourself unless you have an osciloscope to use on the board at test points these cost about $1000 to buy and if you get someone else to fit and calibrate they will charge more than the price of a new ps2 so its not financially worth doing. The cheapest option is buying a second hand slimline ps2 that dont work but the laser is fine then you could transfer the laser without calibrating it but you need to be carefull and make sure the lasers are the same else it wont work at all. Then the problem you will find is you do the repair then say 2 months down the line you get another problem this costing more money again. What i would do but its upto you is just buy new ps2 knowing its working and is going to last a while the new ones now have better lasers and seem to last for ages ive had mine for years now and had no problem. But i have got a slimline ps2 that dont work with same problem but what ill do is keep checking auction sites untill i can pick up cheap ps2 that dont work and replace any parts i need you can usually by damaged ps2 for about £10 including delivery but i repair them and sell them to make a bit of money but as you only want maybe one then theirs a risk involved not knowing if its going to work after the repair i suggest buy new one. Sorry ive gone on a bit but thought it best if i give you all the info ok
You should make sure your cables work on a different PS2. You could have a bad connection somewhere in the cable. If you can you should see if you can get sound out of the optical audio port on the PS2.
