    I have never had ANY problems with my PS2, - so you might want to get it replaced instead of repaired. The repairs are never as good as a brand new PS2. :)

    I would repair it. Whenever i have an electronic that i broke somehow (or it came broken) i just write a lettrer to the company that made it saying mine came like this. They fix it and send me a new one.

    I'm not exactly sure, but I'm moving it to the PS2 forums now...

    No problems on my PS2 at all, it is still in superb condition and it's not degrading :D
     
  8. the laser went out on mine.... i had to buy a new PS2... repairing the old one was only 50$ cheaper

    No Problems with mine, but I do believe some Wal Marts and Toys R us will just exchange them. A few of my friends have done it.

    Mine has run faultlessly - I had it standing vertically for a couple of weeks, and the drive sounded different (in a bad way) so it went back to horizontal. The only thing I do in the way of maintenance is ensure the vents on the bottom of the front are clear of dust.

    Mine had issues playing DVD's at first. It would go from light to dark every few seconds. Changed connections so the cable comes in thru the PS2 instead of the VCR. And the problem is gone. It also is not fond of my copy of GT2. It keeps locking up. But only on GT2.

    Mine clicks when I load it up too.

    My playstation 2 fried a couple of my games and won't read them now. No clue as to why.

    Anyone have that happen to them?

    That would be GT2, the joyful bug-ridden mess that game is (that took up my life for about 6 months...).

    I thought DVD wasn't supposed to play through VCRs because of the digital encoding...
