Question about Sony PSone Console

1 Answer

Strangest Thing Ok, so my friend gave me another ps1 since mine was broken. But whenever cinematics came up during my RPGs, the ps1 would make a strange sound as if it was rewinding or something and the screen would stay on the same picture but it wouldn't continue. It would just freeze there! Now I don't know if I should buy a whole new package(with the ps1 included) or just buy new copies of my rare, and now classic, games. I don't wanna waste all my money on something I don't need! Please give advice, hm?

Maybe the game is not getting a good grip on the CD. Try to put a piece of tape over the button and then put the disc in

My slimline ps2 will not play ps2 games anymore, i went and played a ps1 game (which still work) and no it wont play DVDs or ps2 games

Mine did the same thing. The laser for the PS2 games, and DVD's died. I guarentee that it plays CD's and PS1 games perfectly. if so, the laser needs replaced. and what you have to do is order one on Ebay or something, and have some one put it in. I put a new laser in mine, and well, I am watching a DVD on it right now.

Sorry to inform you that this is not realistically possible. You would not only need to swap out the lens, but also the laser. These days you can pick up a store brand dvd player for about $20 brand new. I imagine if you looked hard enough and sourced a dvd unit that would fit the in the ps1 case and worked on the supplied voltage of the console it COULD work. But, you would be spending $100+ on parts and having a nightmare of a time retro fitting a dvd laser unit that was not made for that system.

Moral of the story... Just buy a cheap DVD player and keep the PS1 around for memory. Or maybe sell the the PS1 for $20 and buy a DVD player :)
Good Luck!

2 PS1 games in almost perfect condition arn't working on PS2

Try wiping the disks in a circular motion with a cotton t-shirt, tissue or cleaning cloth, then try again. If it still doesn't work, try a PS2 game. If it works, try another PS1 game. If the other PS1 game doesn't work, the PS1 part of your PS2 system may be broken. Your PS2 has, inside of it, a miniaturized PS1. If that mini-PS1 breaks, you can't play PS1 games. If the PS2 game doesn't work, you probably need a lens repair. If the other PS1 game works, then your games are defective and you should get new ones.

Unpairing bluetooth headset without mobile???

You may be having compatibility issue instead of what you suspect may be wrong with both your phone and the Bluetooth headset your friend gave you.

Well, there is no such thing as a Bluetooth headset being permanently locked in to a phone.

As long as there is an open 'visible' Bluetooth connection option and there are devices in range ready to pair, the process to pair starts.

Whenever there are incompatibility issues, pairing two devices using Bluetooth becomes a hassle.

High gas Consumption

Most definitly that leak is leaning out the motor so the oxy sensor thinks therse not enough fuel and tells the injectors to put more fuel in.All parts of the air box must be leak free.The air filter should be clean and the lid securely fastened.A compression test would tell you the health of the cylinders and wether theyre working efficiently.The lower the compression ratio the less effectivly the fuel is burnt.If you have around 140-150 your engine is in a reasonable condition.

Phillips go gear SA5125 mp3 player

Make sure you are using the original USB cable that came supplied with the GoGear, and then try the volume + method again. If the volume + method doesn't work, then there is a problem with the USB port recognziing the device being plugged in - or, the player was physically damaged.
