What Do You Think Guys?
« on: July 01, 2002, 12:42:26 PM »
Ok, my PS2 is just about dead.
   It worked perfectly for about 8 months after launch. Then out of no ware is stopped playing DVD movies. I wasn\'t worried much since I really do not watch movies.
   But then cam the PSone games it did not play, I got worried so I bought a CD cleaner because I thought there was a lot of dust in there. Soon the CD format of PS2 games took longer and longer to load.
   Then you guessed it they didn\'t play at all. DVD games are the only ones that play now and not even all of them worked, FFX won\'t play anymore! The cleaner CD doesn\'t even work!

   So I had an idea, ok, I know this is going to sound crazy but I put my PS2 in the freazer. Since there might be alot of dust on the lens I cannot get out I thought I\'ll put it in there to get is all wet in there and get the dust out. I know it sounds crazy but do you guys think it will work?

P.S I don\'t have any money so I can\'t buy a knew one. :confused:

LoL I hope your joking. Take it out of the freezer now. It will **** it up. You could\'ve just sent it to sony to have them fix it. Also in order to have your CD lense cleaner work you have to have it vertical (Up and down) not horizontal (left and right). Well that is how it worked for me.

I would send it back to sony BUT I ripped off the warrenty sticker about a year ago and it says you can\'t take it back without the sticker. I took the PS2 out and it is totally soaked I\'ll wait an hour or two for it to dry-off. ;)

Oh. Well make sure ur PS2 is completely dried or else this may happen:

GAMES: Mom! I fixed it...
*Plug in PS2 to outlit*
Suddenly balls of fire spit out of the ps2, and Games hair stands on end, his house catches on fire, and we all die....

ROFLMAO :laughing:  that\'s the most f*cked idea I heard in years ! Like you said the inside of your PS2 will get wet as if
it were in the rain forest, the effect -> if it defrosts the water
will drag all that dust over the circuit boards and dirty water
will seep into every nook \'n cranny of your PS2. I think you\'ve
come up with the most perfect idea for ruining someone
else\'s PS2 without them knowing it from looking at the outside.
(after it dried up again, of course). As for the warranty...lol
:rolleyes:

C\'mon man, use some common sense. Electrical equipment and moisture do not mix. :)

No need to put him down guys.. People can try what they want.

Even tho it is still funny.:D

I\'ve noticed that the CD Lens cleaners only seem to clean to a certain point.. But my suggestion is TRY to take it apart and clean the lens by hand.. But I\'ve never tried it, so it could make things worse.

BTW - I got a question for somebody out there... Is there even a way to reach the lens!? I remember I tried it a long time ago.. But something was stopping me.. Can\'t remember.
.... take the skin and peel and back...

now doesn\'t it make you feel better?

Yes, you can quiet easily
no ribbons or anything to remove, nothing to disconnect at all.
Only thing is it voids your warenty, which is only 90 days away :)

People who smoke or have dusty homes are generally more effected, and a manual lens clean fixes the majority of Disc Read Errors.

I already voided my warenty. Cause I wanted to see the inside of my baby so bad.. I wanted to see what it looked like... lol

But anyways.. What do you think I should use whenever I wanna clean my lens by hand?

take your lens cleaner cd, and spray the brush part with alcohol.  Put it in the ps2 (it will not play, because the alcohol on the lens distorts what it sees, but it will spin enough times to get the dust off) after you get the error message take the cd out, and let it dry, then put it back in for on cycle.  after the cycle is done, all should be well.

this worked for me

Worst case.. You can always buy the lens head part of the ps2 and replace it, it only takes like 10 mins to swap it with a new one... try searching the net for ps2 lens ... you should come across some
