I think that the disc drive is broken and needs to be replaced and the internal parts might of had got damaged as well too when your PS 2 console fell. It would be more easier to buy a new PS 2 console than to fix the one that you have. Lukie Games and DK Oldies and East Starland Games sells PS 2 consoles.

Try taking a look at the disc's too see whether they have either scratches on the disc's or are dirty then. If they have scratches on them then the console is not able to read the game disc's at all. If there are no scratches at all and are dirty the disc's will need to be cleaned then use a clean damp soft cloth to clean the disc's and don't use a circular motion while clean the disc's off and then dry the disc's off with a second soft cloth and don't dry in a circular motion at all either. Or the disc drive and the reading laser might need to be replaced then.

I think that it is the av cable hook up that is causing this problem then for the TV screen to be flickering then on you. Try a new av cable hook up for your PS 1 console or a new RF switch hook up then with which one you use to hook up your PS 1 console to your TV then. The av cable and the RF switch cable would be causing this problem because of a loose connection then for the display for playing video games to show up on the TV screen.

Losing your Handycam software is the best thing that could have happened to you all. It stinks. Firewire eliminates the need for the crummy camcorder software. Basically, you need to install, or have installed, a Firewire card in your PC, then buy a Firewire cable. Then WinDV software will work perfectly to import video. USB connections, and the USB cable, are ideal for downloading digital still images from cameras. Running footage requires a very large bandwidth, which basically is the throughput from camera to computer. Think of a funnel with a small opening. The small opening is USB. Make the opening 4 times as large and nothing backs up in the funnel. The large opening is Firewire. Anyways, by using a Firewire connection, you can bypass the camcorder software and use "real" video editing software.
As for the video editing software
You can use Sonys movie studio
Windows Movie Maker - The best video editing tool for Windows that's free and chances are you already have it installed on your computer as part of XP SP2. Microsoft Movie Maker has all the basic video editing tools plus a good collection of transitions and video effects.

There's an in-built movie titler that lets add you styles to text titles including ticker taps, zoom and even the scroll effect. And if you are feeling lazy, just hit the AutoMovie command to have the entire video produced for you with intervention.

Not unless your willing to do it yourself.
Tweezers to pick at it or a precision screwdriver set to dissemble the unit and remove the card and reassemble.
Good Luck

Without knowing more, sounds like you need to check the PS3's WiFi settings to make sure the unit is really connected through your home internet service's router to the internet. Make sure the WiFi protocol on the PS3 and the WiFi password validate correctly in the Settings, and that they match that you have set on the WiFi setup of the ISP's router. With a mismatch here to the WiFi settings, nothing on the PS3 will connect to the internet. If it all checks out but the unit doesn't connect to WiFi, if other devices in your house do and you have matched the settings, could be an indication of a problem with the PS3 hardware, scope of which to help you resolve is beyond this forum.

Short answer...yes, would you like to invest what would likely be days learning the process? There may be a mod ship out there somewhere, but unless you are willing to modify the PS3 in someway that would likely void any warranties, then you're going to have to find a DVD for your region. A mod without a chip would involve installing linux in addition to the OS that the playstation comes with. I'm sure the process has gotten easier since I last checked, but I found it too painstaking.

These blinks [flashes] are fault indication (Error Codes). From the number of blinks occur at one time switch ON, you can get an idea about the faulty circuit section inside it. This will make repair easy. These are called blinking codes. Make sure about the exact number of blinking of the standby/power LED, by switching On & OFF the set, for at least two times. Count it carefully. If you wish to get some details, check the site linked here. It has details about blinking codes, and fault locating procedure, to many popular brand TVs and other devices.
