PlayStation 2 ProblemIt sounds like the DVD laser is a bit knackered. Might just be slightly out of place. It should be very simple to fix either buying a new laser and fitting it or taking it to a local electronics store (not currys dixons etc) and they should do it for ?10 - ?20.


Hax Says:you could be right but there are other possibilities such as:
  • the disc could be zoned differently

P.S. 10 to 20 is WRONG. you need a licensed Sony PS2person to deal with it which means 100 to 200 is more accurate
