That is the default setting when you reset the PS2, It's programed into the system. Since PS2 came out in May 2000 it automatically sets the time to the beginning of that year which is 1/1/2000
If you want to change it you

1. If there is a game disc in the console, remove it and then power the unit on/off.

2. When the opening screen appears, choose the bottom option of the two. One will be time and date

6. Return to the Time and Date Setup and verify or set your time zone.

7. Press CIRCLE to exit the configuration menu.

8. Insert the game disc and navigate to the Browser menu to select the game or browse the memory card.

Hi How do I increase the length of time taking a video.

The time limit is set because the image sensor in the camera heats up. You need to give it some time to cool between shots. The record time is set so permanent damage will not happen to the image sensor. Sorry. That time cannot be changed.

Whats involved with changing lid switch, how do I remove the top of cabinet ?

This depends on the model. On some of the machines there are two screws located on the rear of the counsel. On the other half of the models you have to pry off the end caps on the left and right side of the counsel to locate the screws.
Once the two screws are removed, slide the counsel forward and hinge back to access under side of the counsel.
Next there are two gold clips located on both sides of the cabnet under the counsel. Pry them off with a large screw driver. Disconect the wireing plug (3) wires from the cabnet.
Tilt the cabnet forward and remove.
There are two screws holding the lid switch in place. Keep these screws for installing the new switch. Go under the cabnet and remove harnes from clips located under top.(make sure that the new switch had the same plug and the old one. If not cut the old plug off the old switch and install on the new switch)
Take your screw driver and pop the wireing plug from the top of the cabnet.
Reinstall your new switch and install everything in reverse of taking apart.

Unbalanced load stopped machine will not restart why?

On some of the maytag washers when an unbalanced load stops the maching it blows an internal fuse located behind the front panel on some stacking washer and dryer machines and under the counsel on some of the top load machines. ON the top load machines it is recomended that you change the lid switch with the fuse that comes with it.
There are two screws located on each side of the counsel. Remove the two screws and tilt the counsel up and locate the lid switch, fuse assembly. You can check the fuse at this point.

What is the button on the right side of the shifter counsel for?

That could be a shift lock release button. Your car wont shift out of park unless you step on the brake, that button is an override in case you need to get the car out of park and the shift lock solenoid isnt working.
