Question about Sony PlayStation 2 (PS2) Console

Games run very slow after lightening incident

Lightening recently hit our backyard and caused several small electrical issues in our home. One of them seems to be with my son's Playstation 2. At first we thought it was totally dead but it turns out that it is just really slow. It takes a while for a game to load and the play is also very slow. It seems odd that lightening would cause this so it may just be a coincidence. Either way, does anyone know what causes Playstation 2 to slow down? I'm hoping it's a piece that we can just replace.Thanks ahead of time for any help!

Lightning can cause weird problems, All you need is "Static Discharge" every capacitor in your PS2. It's not recommended for you to do it by yourself. So a technician help is needed. Good Luck

Looking for a model E552VLE 55" vizio LCD HD Replacement screen . My son hit ours with a remote and broke it. Looks like lightening streak. Can u help?


Contact the authorized service centre for Vizio. A screen replacement will cost around 2/3rd of the total cost of a new TV; [price of the screen + Service charges]. Think more about it before do this repair work. http://electronicshelponline.blogspot.com/

Lightening hit and blew my main circuit. Lost 3 TV's, a refrigerator, some small appliances, and the fireplace. It won't run at all. It seems a few of the internal parts got burnt. Is it worth...


No, not really. Parts are hard to come by. Include it in your insurance claim with all the other appliances that were damaged and get a new one.

Thanks fr choosing FixYa.

My 17-year old son asserts that his '99 Sunbird (112K miles) broke down several days ago causing him to pull off the road - no additional details - after which he restarted the car and drove home. Next...


If the timing belt (chain ) broke or jumped the car would not have restarted after your son shut the engine off. (The motor would have stopped on it's own.) Timing belts are an issue with most modern cars and if the motor is what is referred to as an interference engine there will be valve damage. The other possibility is that some components from the butterfly valves in intake manifold were sucked into the cylinder head causing damage to the cylinders , pistons and valves. No matter what the cause its going to cost a lot to repair.

No sound going to tv from console


If the audio function is not working properly on your PS3, there are several steps you can take to properly fix these problems quickly at home without sending it out to Sony and paying over $100 for repairs. Here are some simple troubleshooting steps to help you identify what may be causing your PS3 audio problems and fix them.

1) If you have no sound at all, you should check and make sure that the mute button has not been pressed on the television remote. This may sound like an obvious thing to check, but you would be surprised how often this is the cause of no sound issues with the PS3.

2) Next, make sure all your audio cables are properly connected between the TV and the PS3. A simple loose cable can cause sound issues as well.

3) Check the audio settings for your Playstation 3 and make sure they are properly set and also set correctly for the type of television you are using (HDTV versus standard).

4) Check and make sure the disc you are using is not copy protected or otherwise unsuitable for use in your PS3. Try another disc if you are unsure.

5) Make sure that you are using the correct cables to connect your TV to your Playstation 3. If you have recently changed the cables you are using, this can often be the source of the problem.

If none of these five steps work, you may still be able to fix your PS3 at home with the help of a good PS3 home repair guide
