Help - PS2

Hi.I have a problem with my Playstation 2 so i wanted to ask for help.

I was playing DMC3 today.When i stoped playing i went to check the internet on my PC.After an hour i start up my PS2 and it cant read my games(any of them).When i click browser it says DISC COULD NOT BE READ.What the hell is the problem!!!My Playstation has always been in perfectly good condition,i always was careful when using it(REALLY careful,as if it was a bomb,I was always so afraid that it could break,so i did everything really gently),but after an hour it just stops working.God,im so desparate,my Playstation 2 is the only thing that is truly mine,only i use it and noone else dares to touch it without my permision.

Im already trying to make it work for like 10 hours!!!Please help!

Oh,great,now i have to take it apart.No,i wont risk.I better take it to a specialist to get it fixed up(luckily my mom has friends at work who fix various things including PS2’s).Thanks man for warning me.

EDIT:BTW,have you tried this?Did it work?

Holy cow dude calm down, taking apart your playstation 2 is relativley easy and safe. It isn’t made of gel and the slightest scratch could ruin it. It’s probably a dirty lens that is easily cleaned with a light brush of a rubbing alchohol dabbed Q-Tip. The insides of the ps2 are metal and tough plastic, trust me, it isn’t going to break.

P.S. I didn’t look at the link so I may be repeating whatever was on there.

kicking it helps… seriously it does… seriously… just superglue the front back on when it falls off

i opened mine and sprayed it out and it worked again and if you take rubbing alcohol and a q-tip you can clean the laser

and if you turn that can-o-air upside down and spray it on your friend\brother\sister\anybody\dog\cat it makes ice or something like that spray out of it and its really cold

…i suck at grammer <-- spelled wrong i think

I already cleaned the lens but it still doesnt work.

I think this could be the problem - when i dont play my Playstation 2 I hold it in a dusty place(i should have placed it somewhere else),so i think my PS2 is full of dust.Could this be the problem?

Same with those things the people that have astma(see,i cant spell right either)use to breath.Turn it around and spray.My friend did that on me.He sprayed it on my finger.It felt like my finger died,i couldnt feel my finger,and when i could it hurt like hell.Hhahahaha.

You are not the only one.

Well if the lense isn’t dirty, it can be out of place. Theres a small dial in there that adjusts this. I suggest doing a google for it. I have done this. There’s not a whole lot of risk.

Well,i took my PS2 to the specialist.If he aint gonna fix this thing,i will.

The ps2 is a great system, too bad it’s a peice of shit.

If you take it apart be very careful of the cord conecting the buttons to the system. I accedently droped the top of mine when I took it apart and it either ripped the cord or unpluged it from the inside. a problem easily fixed, but I’d rather buy a new one… which I never did. My ps2 still remains broken in the corner sobs

Why dont you fix it?Dont you want to play it again?

Damn.I miss my RE4 and DMC3 :frowning: .

I miss final fantasy :frowning:

Damn it!That guy still hasnt fixed my PS2,he hasnt even touched it yet.Maybe i should get it back and do it myself :-? .

My PS2 had the same problems yours does!!

I took it to a specialist, no fix, tried it myself, no fix!!!

It just started clicking one day, and then wouldn;t work after that.

After that, I just quit trying to fix it and bought a Gamecube and Xbox!!

The PS2 is pure crap when it comes to hardware, but great on games.

My suggestion is to adjust the dial for the lens and try to get it back on the track.

Other than that, I don;t know what to tell you!

cleaning the dust works for a lot of people. You should do it every few months just to keep it clean. I’ve seen it fix probs with several ps2’s.
