slimline ps2 problem
  • HI, I AM EXPERIENCING A PROBLEM WITH MY SLIMLINE PS2 CONSOLE. WE HAVE HAD IT FOR A COUPLE YEARS NOW AND SOMETIMES LATELY IT WON'T LOAD A WORLD SOCCER 2005 GAME WHICH IT HAS NEVER HAD A PROBLEM DOING BEFORE. IT SOUNDS AS IF THE GAME ISN'T LOADING AND AFTER A COUPLE ATTEMPTS IT WILL EVENTUALLY PLAY . IT DOESN'T DO IT ALL THE TIME BUT IT IS HAPPENING MORE FREQUENTLY. OH AND WE HAVE ALSO TRIED TO CLEAN THE DISC AND IT DOESN'T MAKE MUCH DIFFERENCE. DO YOU KNOW IF WE CAN DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT OR DO WE NEED TO GO AND PURCHASE A NEW CONSOLE SOON?! THANK YOU, MICHELLE.:cool:
  • Well, Michelle, you could also try cleaning the lens with a cotton swab and just the teensiest bit of alcohol (or use a DVD lens cleaning kit). Unfortunately it does sound like your system may be dying a slow death so you may want to consider having to pick up a new system (maybe a good time to upgrade to the PS3?).
