Can Anyone Help?
  • Hi All,

    I bought a PS2 about 5years ago and recently it's been playing up; crashes, when I'm listening to music it jumps seconds...I thought it was the discs but they are clean without scratches. Anyone know what's wrong, and what to do?

  • try giving the lens a bit of a cleaning- it's probably a bit of dirt making it harder to read the discs.
  • What do you mean by 'clean the lens'?
  • If you are using one of the slim models flip the top up and give the lens a gentle rub using a q-tip and a very slight bit of alcohol. This should get rid of whatever dirt may be on the lens and let the system read the discs.

    The older "fat boy" models are a bit more complicated to do it this way as you have to take the top completely off and risk disconnecting some cables if you aren't careful. In this case get a DVD lens cleaning kit, available at most department stores and electronics shops.
