A silver slim ps2 is unable to play certain games


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 :)

Play station network is not working.


There is a bug in the Playstation system right now. If you notice your date stamp may say a weird date such as 2000 or 1999. Trophies will not load and the network will not connect not allowing you to play DLC or trophy enabled games. A statement from Sony suggests not to turn on your ps3 at this time-
"We believe we have identified that this problem is being caused by a bug in the clock functionality incorporated in the system."

"
We hope to resolve this problem within the next 24 hours. In the meantime, if you have a model other than the new slim PS3, we advise that you do not use your PS3 system, as doing so may result in errors in some functionality, such as recording obtained trophies, and not being able to restore certain data."

PS2 slim will not read games, just started doing it yesterday


The problem, generally is the laser motor, that is old or worn.
Unless you know of an electrical engineer, who won't charge the earth for the repair, It's now just ornamental.
Another major problem with these particular 'slim line' consoles, is that they heat up too much.
There isn't a sufficient air flow to cool the processor.
Good luck with that.

Disc error issues with PlayStation 2 slim


Hi eetsbeets,

 

 It is not a problem leaving your Slim turned on, it is mainly leaving a disc that is unreadable in the Slim for long times that melts the laser.  So it is best if you find that your getting disc read error not to allow the laser to try reading it for hours needlessly.

 

I think I got an email or phone call from  you about repairing this slim for you.  I have ordered a power switch, and have lasers on hand. The cost for Repair and return shipping if I change the laser, and the reset/power button card, will be $39..  Contact me at Repairtech@playstationclinic.com

 

If you can do it yourself, you can get the power/reset button and LAser replacements on Ebay. I suggest not to resolder the swtich on as a new one is not that expensive.
