After playing a game for a while, say five minutes, the screen goes black and remains black except for a flashing small white square top left of screen. I have seen this square during running when the screen is changing and the console seems to be loading something. The console will reset OK, but the game is lost.
Older PS2 model SCPH-50003 (UK)
Any help appreciated.

You'll have to change the video cable of PS2..........(their is just one data cable of video and audio both that has three connectors for TVs socket )the problem is with your cable only.........it might had been damaged but still some how play sound and video to some extent.Their is some thing else i want to tell you......i had faced this problem myself.............and i did just what i told you after that it was OK...........!!!
hmm, annoyingly this is quite a common problem on the early releases of the slimline Ps2 models. The power supply units get to hot and can cause this problem. I'd recommend getting an updated PSU unit which will be available online
your console might be over heated . if you continusly try to play it, stop leave it alone for around 10 minutes. get a soda watch some tv and make sure that consule is completly disconnect from the wall.
My ps2 actually did this for a long time. Either it "Died" as they say, or something is wrong with the internal part of the ps2. If you open it properly, there is a white gear you'll find. This keeps the cd, and a few other things on track. Turn this gear to the left 3-5 ticks. Close the ps2 and it should be fixed. If you have anymore problems post it please.
