    Alright as some of you might know I have a PS2 that is messed up. I have looked for places on the console where I can take it apart and can not find any. I would like to clean from the inside and maybe adjust the lenses correctly. Problem is I can not find out how/where to take it apart from. Any help would be appreciated.

    I have not done this myself but i read some where that the screws are under the little black rubber square pads under the PS2. Just have to pull them off.

    well i would't suggest doing it your self. Take it to your local electronics store.

    I'd send it to Sony. That way if something happens you won't have to worry about problems getting it fixed. If you do it yourself and screw it up they won't take it back.

    I would send it to Sony if it wouldnt cost the price they are charging. $130! For that much I can save up $70 and go buy a new one. :rolleyes:
