My ps2 shutdown while i'm playing, i can't open it anymore. why?

It might be overheating. The most common problem is the fan. Try spraying pressured air to clean it, or bring it to a shop to change the fan.

Black screen, no disc spin or eject, fan spins

That same thing happened to me. I disassembled the ps2 to find out the problem, I found out. If your console does not turn on or no lights check the silver ribbin connected to the reset button. See If it is in all the way the top and the bottom of the ribbin or check to see if there are any tares in it if there is replace it . You can get good parts off of Ebay.

PS2 Cooling Fan not spinning

well could just be shot fans are not suppose to last forever the best thing to do would be replace the fan, make sure that the fan is not plugged up with anything and it has free movement when spinning if it struggles any then its seized up which would have to be replaced measure the fan and take a look on ebay for a replacement fan of that size but if you search for ps2 fan replacement then chances are that it will cost alot more.

if you need help finding a replacement let me know im more then willing to help out.

good luck

Ps2 not spinning and light turning green then back to red


Your PS2 is probably experiencing a short circuit on the motherboard or the Emotion Engine is burned up. Sometimes the fan goes dead and the PS2 overheats and shuts down showing the red light. You can open the PS2 and clean up the motherboard and maybe it will recover.

My ps2 doesn't read the game. what should i do?

It likely needs a cleaning. A PROFESSIONAL cleaning, not a lens disc.... There isa a slim chance ther laser is dead, but it's more likely just the cleaning. Rates vary, but my shop charges about $56 for PS2 cleanings (we actually clean inside the optical assembly and mechanisms and reallign eveything back to spec).

PS2 turns on fine when disk tray is open but the reset button turns red from green and stops working

Here's a pretty good guess what happened... All of the Windex products are mostly water. You probably got some of the Windex onto the board of the PS2. Now this isn't a problem until it is energized. Once you turned it on, the windex which is mostly water probably shorted out your board instantly. There are a few things you can try though. Open up your console and try to dry the area with a hair dryer. After it appears dry, check to see it there is any corrosion anywhere you see metal. If there is, clean those areas with a q-tip and isoproply alcohol. Then you will want to let the parts air dry. Repeatedly hitting it with the hair dryer can shrink wires inside the system and can cause them not to function. See if that fixes the problem. If not, you may need to prepare your PS2 for a proper burial. And next time you need to clean the fan, use some sort of vacuum to suck the junk out from the back. Hope this helps. Good luck.
