Question about Sony PlayStation 2 Slimline Console

Slimline PS2 not loading

My slimline PS2 isnt loading most of my games, i bought a game recently which wasnt scratched but took ages to load, and when i bought a new copy of the game i had the same problem, eventually, that problem has got worse, and now its not loading any of my games apart from two which i was playing before any of these problems started to occur.

I've done a bit of research and found out that it might be the lens, but i dont have a clue where, HOW, and what to do if it is the lens (whatver that is).

The lens is what reads the games, you better find a gaming repair shop, they will have your situation sorted in minutes, cleaning the ps2 isnt childs play, i know a few people un-experienced and now their computers dont work anymore and had to buy new ones, dont be the next one, i hope this info was of any help

I have a PS2 slim which works fine except for one game - Drakan: Order of the Flame. I just bought it from ebay. The first time I put it in it didn't load so I took it out and wiped it with a cloth. When I...


Do you know anyone else with a PS2 that you could try it on? You need to know if it is the game or PS2.

It could have been that the disc has faded due to storage or being left on a windowsill and this can be hard to notice.

Screech noise from ps2 slim


Sounds like the laser may have gone bad on your system, try this - use compressed air to clean out the system, where the laser is, and other openings on the device. Then clean your game disc with a CD/Game Disc cleaner (bought at any gaming stores), try this. If this doesnt fix the problems then i would contact SONY and have them replace your system or atleast maybe they could try to fix it. Good Luck!

During games the console freezes in different parts. it happens in different games and i have to wait for it to load the landscape before i can play again


Sounds like either a scratched disk or an overheat. Put your PS2 in a well aired out area where it can breath. Check to make sure your disks aren't severely scratched either

Slimline PS2 has started to only read some games, not others


Hello. Base on you're problem description, and from my own experience, I believe the problem is with your lens. I recommend that you take a closer look in to it. Take it to your local game store and have it cleaned.

PS2 slim line, cant load saved games


it's either your ps2 or your memorycard.. my suggestion is to buy another memory card, and if the problem reveals unsolved by doing that, you shold call the manufacturer about the problem, because then it is the console itself which is the problem..

PS2 Slimline


If it is still under warranty, I suggest you have sony repair or replace it. That is the easiest fix.

PS2 Slim wont turn on


You might try a friends ps2 power supply of the same type to make shure it isnt the ps2 that is broken. If the friends power supply works, get a working one from ebay or something.

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.
