PS2 trouble shooting....?

Does anyone have a good link to a trouble shooting site for the PS2? My system is not booting a game on the first try and it also hangs during menu changes in GT4.....Probably other games too. When it freezes, it will sometimes unfreeze after several minutes or it will just be done. Doesn't happen during game play though which is kind of wierd.....

Any help would be great. I really don't feel like buying another new system just to play the one game on occasion.

Thanks,

Try putting the machine on its side, the lens may need some assistance. When I say side, I mean so its standing like a tower, the with cdrom tray at the top, like it would stand if you had the stand.

Done that already. do these things over heat? I think I might crack the case and see how much dust build up there is and maybe see if there is a way to clean the laser lens. At this point the system is kind of fugged anyway so if it goes Kaput oh well.

thanks for the help.

I highly doubt it will overheat, its only 300mhz cpu. The lens do crap out after a while, but usually result in whats called a dre( disc read error ). You can replace the lens which are about $20 - $40.

6 or 8 screws on the bottom, then be real careful when pulling the case off, the top part has a cable that comes unplugged easy and is a bitch to get back on.

I fixed mine real good. I got so sick of it fucking with me, I did a football endzone spike on it. I then put it in my green filing cabinet outside.

Got close to that myself!! I took it apart, cleaned the dust out and cleaned the laser lense. Works Much better during game play but still takes two or three times to boot the game.

I guess I will start saving for a new slimline model.
