    I had my PS2 slimline now for just alittle over 1 year and it plays superbly. Then last month it slows to load EA sports 2006 rugby and EA sports 2004 football will play until it stops. I realized that the soccer CD was scratched and so I blamed the CD.

    However, one time I put the CD on and it was slow to load and then it stalled. I reset the console and it won't load up but just remain at the browser.

    I can fix it with your assistance. At the moment I needed your assistance.

    Please help me.

My ps2 has/had the same problem, it wouldn't read DVD movies at all and ps1 games were always hit or miss. The only two solutions i can suggest are cleaning the lens or replacing the little cotton pad that holds the disk in place near the laser. This seemed to fix it for me, it works about 85% of the time now. Hope one of these helps

PS2 Slim Disc Wont Spin


Sounds like the laser has gone out. The unit will not try to spin unless the laser can see the disc. A new laser can be picked up on ebay for less than $10

It spins and clicks but doesnt read


It's good that it still spins as that rules out motor problems. I read lots of advice about cleaning the lens etc which rarely soves the problem. Look I've been repairing these Playstations for years a clicking noise tells us that the unit cannot focus correctly to read the disc. These laser units are not that reliable. It is unlikely to be broken but the PS2 will need to be opened and the DVD potentiometer will need adjusting about one eigth of a turn clockwise which increases the frequency of the laser thus ensure discs are readable once more. You should find plenty of tutorials on the web for this. Professionally an oscilloscope would be used to adjust the laser to a specified frequency accurately. I've adjusted these for years and get it right 99% of the time.
Slimline Ps2 while space saving and aesthetically pleasing had PSU heat problems with the early releases which caused all kinds of instabiliy issues. Hope yours is a newer one.

Sounds like a motor issue, not a laser issue.

Please.. help me... my ps2 slimine is comepletely ruined..


Since you "smashed" which made things much worse (been there, done that). It was probrably fixable but now that it scratches I can only assume that the lens (laser) is scratched and damaged "beyond repair". The only suggestion I have, if you really want to fix it is to replace the lens and probrably the disc tray too. Fot the trouble it's worth too fix and the fact that there is no guarantee that it will even work after you fix it, your best bet is too buy a new one or at least a refurbished one.
