Re: Cleaning while running
Although practical, the risk of static discharge is present when doing this unless coming from 1.) store-purchased compressed air can made for this purpose or 2) if using home compressor, must install static de-ionizer nozzle...these are used in industry where, for example, blowing off CDROM's is necessary and often.

Could be. Dirty dusty could cause heat build up. Replace fuse and clean fuse contacts with spray electrical cleaner. If fuse blows again, figure out what runs off that circuit and test further for bad connections at bulbs, spade connectors, etc.
Try running it on a hard flat surface and see if it runs better. The shutting down could be due to the machine overheating due to poor airflow. Try cleaning the air vents around the case, make sure they are not dusty.
I would try a cd cleaner cd - they normally have tiny brushes on the CD itself, which when used brushes against the laser lens.
I have opened one up before, they do get dusty - so if you really want to give it a good clean I would open it (remove the 6 screws putting them somewhere safe) and use a can of compressed air to blow out any dust.
There is a fair amount of grease inside which may collect dust if blown about.
If your laptop is more than a year old, it's probably gotten quite dusty.
That should usually happen if you play a game or watch a movie or a youtube video.
Open the big cover on the bottom for the memory slots - well it covers everything: processor(s), memory clots etc.
4 screws, the cover also held by snapping little plastic tabs, do not be afraid to open but be rather carefull, do not just yank it open, you will see the fan facingback of the laptop in the corner, it suppose to blow through the heat sink.
Remove the fan, 3 screws, the screws are very little, be careful, you will see the inner side of the sink more likely coverd with dirt or dust etc.
Carefully remove using tweezers and blow using canned compress air dust remover.
due to dusty environment it happens the lens gets dusty
open the dvd tray u can see that shiny eye like thing try cleaning th lens gently in round movement with a tissue paper or very soft cloth used to clean lcd screens see if it works , other wise ur DVD drive lens got weak from use now adays service centers are getting tons of them everyday for replacements
Is your computer more than a couple years old? If so, then the internal components, like the fans and heatsink may be dusty. When those parts get really thick dusty, the fans are not as efficient, and have to run harder to keep the computer cool.
If you're comfortable opening your case, you can take a look and see if there's a lot of dust. You may want to have an experienced friend or technician do the cleanup, as you may need to take off a part or two to do the really deep cleaning.
I think blowing air cleaned the TV but Remote Sensor at front of TV got more dusty and now unable to receive Infrared signal of remote. That's my theory and can be confirmed by cleaning of Remote Sensor in TV.
I'm going to assume that you've had the PS2 for a long while. If it isn't under any kind of warrenty, you could try opening it up, and just clean it out a bit. Sometimes the eye can get dusty over time and have a difficult time working.
You could also purchase a cleaning kit from electronic stores, or even wal-mart. All you do is apply a cleaning agent onto a cd that comes with it, and you put it in.
Don't fret too much about this issue, it's quite common in older consoles that read cd's/dvd's.
