Playstation 2 problems


The PS2 Works fine right correct?? If it does and you want to fix the Laser do the following :

Step 1 Turn off the PS2 if on.

Step 2 make the PS2 lie down on its back where the PS2 logo is not seen.

Step 3 Take off the Rubber Squares which are located from all 4 corners and take out the screws using a screw driver.

Step 4 Take off the lid of the PS2 after the screws are taken out.

Step 5 near the light of the PS2 were it shows the Green and blue light is a box where the PS2 disc runs.

Step 6 screw the top of the box and you should see a disc if not taken out and underneath the disc is the lens use alcohol and gently wipe the lens with a Q-Tip after doing so put the lid out of box back on and open the disc drive and put a game in it should work or just get a new PS2 Slim.

My Slim Ps2 crashed!!


hi is your ps2 the one where the lid lifts up to put the disk in if so their can sometimes be a problem with switch on the lid when you press the button to load the game push down on the lid and hold it down and if this is the problem then the game will load.
My ps2 has this problem and i have to put books or bottle of somekind on the lid to keep the lid pressed down far enough so that the switch works and loads the game.

Also you could try cleaning the laser lense you can buy a lense cleaning disk and that will clean it for you and if thats the problem as moving it might have caused the dust to move inside a bit affecting the laser have a go at these ideas then get back to me ok

My PS2 will not play PS2 games, but it will play PS1 games


Hi
If it will play DVD's this is a good sign. You will only need to clean the lens of the laser. Also clean the hub that the Disc rides on.
I hope your in the right posting area, this is for the Phat PS2 consoles with the drawer that comes out to put the CD in. Procedure is different for Slim PS2.
  1. Disconnect power and turn the case upside down.
  2. Remove the screw covers to expose the case screws. These are little square pieces or square rubber pads. You can use a thin knife blade to pry the hard plastic squares up.
  3. Remove all the screws.
  4. REmove the Warranty sticker to the right edge of the power socket.
  5. Turn the PS2 over to set it right side up.
  6. lift the top cover from the back and pull it forward slightly to clear the CD tray. Be careful of a possibly Ribbon cable attached to the lid going to the REset/Eject buttons. Roll the cover over to the right leaving the ribbon intact.
  7. Remove the Cd tray lid.
  8. Polish the Laser lens, and remove any lint or hair from the Cd area. Use Alcohol and cotton swabs to clean the laser lens. By the way, Alcohol will damage a PS2 Slim lens. All lens are not created equally.
  9. Hook up the power and A/v Cables.
  10. REmove the little white disc from the Cd tray lid.
  11. Place a Disc on the spindle, and cap the disc with the little white piece that you removed from the CD tray cover.
  12. Boot up the PS2 and test it, Continue cleaning until you get it to work.
  13. Put it back together, and your in business.
If you have trouble you can send your PS2 to the Playstation Clinic for Repair. Contact [email protected]
