My boys PS2 recently quit

It wasn't spinning the disks or moving the laser

I cleaned it
and that didn't do any good

I read some Internet boards that it was probably the laser
so I bought one from Hong Knog for 30 bucks

but that didn't work either

any of you guys had any luck with this?

Apparently they have two lasers and they can get out of allignment do to use/heat. Mine plays PS2 games fine but refuses to play PS1 games.

I got the slim PS2 and csn't find anything that says how to align it
there is some info out there on adjusting pots on the back of the board, but mine are in spec

that might help yours though

I have a slim new one as well and the ****ers don't have an internal fan. You play the game over 3 hours and it's super hot. Fixing the problem won't cure the cause.

I'm throwing in the towel and waiting for a PS3 price drop...

Thirty bucks for a laser? I guess I've never looked, but I doubt PS2s are more than $50 on eBay these days...

ebay $80 and up

and you never know what shape it's really in or how long it will last

refurbs are $80 still
thought if a $30 laser would fix it.... well

I looked the other day and they were going at $50 with a bunch of games included.
