PS2 shutoffs during gameplay

During gameplay or even during playing a dvd my ps2 will shutdown and the red light will start blinking. at first i thought it was maybe just the game i was playing but then it started to do so for all the disc's i insert into it. i would like to know why it is doing this and how i can fix it, if i can.

    thats what i thought at first, but i can hear the fan. it does feel warm when it shuts off, but no warmer than it did before this problem started to happen.
    if it is over heating, what do i do to fix it?

    you can buy new fan and do it yourself, or get someone to do it for you for a lot of money...best bet is to go on ebay and buy a used broken one for parts... just make sure the fan works.

    yeas but not if its the motor. i dont wanna tell you to open it because youll void any kind or repair work you might need later, you can just go buy an extra fan with the stand, they actually sell em.. lemme look somethings up and ill write again

My ps2 slim wont play need for speed games anymore


your eye is going bad. Get a cleaner to clean the eye. Its a disk with a small brush to clean debris from the eye. But you can try to use an air can to see if it helps. Also, it maybe you have a deep scratch on the game...which you are not noticing it. Maintain your ps2 clean from dust. And make sure it has plenty of ventilation and they area is clean from debris, dust or anything else that can get into it. Good luck. Rate plz

My PS2 can play games,but at some time the console would turn off/shutdown automatically with the red light blinking/turning on and off


this is probably an overheat problem. you could remove the heat sync and apply thermal gel to the processor, also check that the case fan runs.

Games Are Freezing


this has happened to me...
i was first getting red ring of death
then i fixed it and never got RROD again
but it started freezing during gameplay, then at dashboard and then at the beginning until it couldnt start at all...
this can be cause by overheating GPU and CPU causing them to bend and lose connection...just like RROD, or it can possibly be that component that reads and plays games, is screwed up...

Disc Tray


The rubber band inside your PS2 might be broken, the rubber band supports the disc tray and it ejects and inserts the tray.

Sometimes if play too much long, some of the PS2 parts will be damaged by excessive heat, so my advice is that your minimum gameplay time must be 3-4 hours only.

Please den't even try forcing the tray to open, it will be more damaged.

Try resting your PS2 for about 1-2 days, after that try to open the tray, if the problem still persist bring to a PS2 fixer near you.

360 Freezes during gameplay


try to keep the box in a spot where it and the power brick can stay cool.... same thing happened to my first box eventually it got the rings of death like so many other xboxs out there... so if keeping it well aired dont work you need to ring micro soft and have it sent off for repairs before it suffers a system failure

PS2 will not play DVD


Make sure the disk is compatible and not damaged.Try playing another disk and see what happens if you still do not get anything you may want to consider a xbox or 360 with remote control for dvds. Also check to see if ps2 has a remote for playing dvd disc. never worry!!
