PS2 Fezzing most of the time, What's WRONG?!
  • Often, my PS2 will freeze for no reason. It doesn't happen all the time, but often enough to be a nusance, and often before the game loads. It usually freezes on the PS2 graphics which loads before the menu. But sometimes it freezes on black before it loads, and sometimes when I get the game loaded and move the analog stick. The musis still plays for a few seconds or so, longer usually when it freees during a game. I have tried removing the cords. Resetting the power and letting all of the energy to run out of the ps2. My PS2 is very old, I got it in January for my birthday when they first came out. It has lated me a long time and I understand they don't last forever. But if there is a specific reason this is happening, I would really like to know.

    IF there is any information I forgot, please let me know.

    Edit: Yes I realise I mispelt freezing.
  • No worries on the mis-spelling, I'm quite versed in typonese. :P

    I'm afraid there is not much that can be done, your PS2 is dying of old age. For one of the original units to go close to 10 years is actually very good. All I can suggest is to pick up a slim unit to replace the system you have now.
