Re: ps2

In case you did not see the recommended video, take a screwdriver and remove the six screws on the bottom. Now gently lift the side opposite of the reset button (the side where the vertical stand fits) and run your fingernail or a screwdriver around the case. There are some tabs that still hold the two halves together after removing the screws so when this is done, those snap and release the halves. Now turn the unit right way up and lift the top half off. Pay attention to the reset cable that connects the reset button to the mainboard. Gently pop this from the grove it is attached to and you are done. To remove the bottom half from the mainboard, unscrew the screw that sits in front of the controller ports. Now lift the opposite side of the mainboard (the area with the AC jack) and it should come out, leaving the two plastic cases free.
Hope this helps and mind the reset cable!

My ps2 won't turn on

    First check your adapter(mostly it start problem during long use) that is it ok, if yes the check the flexible strip of power supply. But as precautive measure dont try to fix it by yourself if you are not familer from electronics. Please contact any expert nearby.

Thanks for using FIXYA!

hey there if you go here

you will be able to find the manuals for the ps2 on the 7000 series please refer to page 12 of the manual.

if its a fat model on the left hand part of the screen when you click the link you will see "playstation 3000-5000"

and you can select that and find the manuals that way.

For the ps2 fat version the model number is on the back of the unit and the ps2 slimeline version is on the bottom of the unit.

make sure your tv is set to the right channel or input device setting mode.

Can't play my game again

you need to clean the lens or ajust the power going to it, to clean it all oyu have it do is get one of those "laser cleaners" from any tech store. if that doesnt work then it's time to viod a waranty(if its still under waranty get an exchange!) depending on what type of ps2 you have(original/slimeline and the the firmware) you will have 2 screws to ajust the laser's power. Clockwise is more, counter-clockwise is less. the screws should be located under you drive(this could blow your laser so if you feel uncomfortable, take the top of the drive off and ajust a white cog wheel that controls the laser's angle. make a mark of its original location and turn it clockwise untill you can read the disks again. if you turn it too far it will fall back down)
