Problem with disc reading on PS2 Slim.

2 Replies 2,055 Views Created 30-12-2008

My PS2 Slim refuses to read any game discs. When I try to start a game I always end up at the Browser/System Config screen. Regular CD's and DVD's work without any problems, and all my games are original so there shouldn't really be a problem. I played games yesterday and everything worked fine, and now it's not working. I have tried several different games, from Res. Evil to Guitar Hero, pulled out the AC adapter, tried with and without memory card and so on.

Does anyone know what the problem might be?

Re: Problem with disc reading on PS2 Slim.

Having the exact same problem on my PS2 Slim. Bought just over a year ago, used maybe 15-20 times (bundled with BUZZ!)

The unit has bin either in original package or in a cupboard, and it seems like the optical unit just died. The discs aren't even spining up!

 

And warranty is out by 3 weeks! (only 1 year warranty, c'mon Sony, I knew you're making alot of crap, but 1 year! don't you have more confidence in your products!?!?!?)

Re: Problem with disc reading on PS2 Slim.

Some Slim models of PS2 has crappy lasers.

The SCPH-70004 units dies very often.

 

Sony has always had 2years warranty on their products except for the Ps units.
