Re: ps2 slim laoding error
Your Slim has a short circuit somewhere. I run a repair shop for Playstations and what I do is clean the Ciruit board and fan out real good to get rid of Dust and lint. Sometime the dust gets wet someway, and begins to conduct the power. This will cause the Slim to go green for a second and then back red.
Remove the screw covers on the bottom of the slim
Remove the screws, I think I remember 7 screws. At least 6.
Remove any disc
Pop the cover up from the back. Sometimes the Right side will not want to pop loose, but it is ok to force it.
Disassemble the console guts carefully. Do not stand on carpet when working on the motherboard. Stand on wood, Ceramic, or Linoleum.
Clean every speck of dust and lint out of the conole.
REassemble and test.
I hope this works for you. Post another comment to this page and I will repsond. You might want to send it off for repair at www.playstationclinic.com

I was experiencing the same problem on my ps2 slim scph-90004. When I put a game in my ps2 it loads but after some time it just freezes at the same spot.I went to many shops but they dont recognize my problem.Then i open my ps2 slim (Warning:Opening of ps2 my void your warranty) and saw the lens which was not adjusted. SO,if you are experiencing the same problem then use the above method(For slim only).Look at the rod near the lens which has two small clips on it. Open the screws on the clips and take out your ps2 lens.Clean it with a cotton.Set the lens in some different position and load your games .
I had the same problem with my PS2 (big version) It would not load games consistently, and it would freeze ALL THE TIME. I turned it on its side (propped it up with books, lol) and it performed better (50% better) but it would still freeze. I tried cleaning the lens to no avail. Clean the lens with a lens cleaner, blow out any dust. No idea what else to do other than realigning the laser or sending it in under warranty. Since neither of those options would cost less than buying a whole new console, I would recommend finding a slim (small version) PS2 or if you already have the "slim" Just buy another one.
your lense is more than likely defragmented jacob and you should never take any system apart okay so what you wanna do is if your warrenty is still in effect dont tell sony you took it apart just send it in for a refurbisment if it isnt you need to look around online for a ps2 slim lense okay
ps2 can play dvds but xbox needs a store bought xbox dvd remote to play dvds the ps2 slim and the ps2 normal have a lot in common so thwere is not much difference, but the slim has a fliptop lid and the fat ps2 has a open and shut slide drive.If I were you I would get the slim because it is the only one you can get brand new nowadays. The xbox may have halo 1 and 2 but sometimes there are freezes on certain xboxes.
Hi i need more info when you put the game in and close draw does it load the game or does it just goto browser like their is no game in if this is the case then the only thing you can try is buying a lense cleaner and run this through your ps2 if this dont solve your problem then the chances are you will need the laser replacing you can get these off well known auction site but the problem is you will need the info on how to calibrate the new laser. Let me know what actually happens then i can assist you further
You will ne4ed to clean up the PS2. open it up and clean the laser lens with alcohol on a cotton swab. If it is the Slim Ps2 model you should not use Alcohol. Use A glass Cleaner like windex on the slim. Sometimes the magnet gets week and you need to add some magnetism to help improve the spindle grip on the Game disc. Cut up a refridgerator magnet and place it in the white cap thatt clamps the Game disc in the cd player.
To fix this problem, you will need to open your PS2 and re-adjust its lens. To open your PS2, first turn it upside down. Remove the 4 rubber feet and 6 square tabs (circled in the picture) by sliding a flat screwdriver (or something similar) underneath them.
