    Arrgh think my ps2 is dead

    Blame my flatmate he decided to use my ps1 power supply as he couldnt see the ps2 one(which was plugged into it duh)

    Since then it keeps randomly powering down and wont read PS2 cd's right, and I have a weird problem with GTA3 it makes the offical pad rumble non stop on the loading screen and then it crashes.

    I take the memory card out and it takes 20 minutes or so just to load the opening scene.

    This is a 8 month old slimline model which has only had about 15-20 hours use(half of which is flatmates)

    make him pay for a new one.
    Sounds broken to me.

    If it's only 8 months old then it doesn't matter...........it's still under warranty so take it back. :thumbsup:

    Is it still under warranty. Might be worth a try.


    Edit: looks like Syzable was quicker than me.

    How did he plug the Playstation 1 power supply in if the PS2 one was already connected?

    unless it is different to the older ps2, the power supply is a standard 2 pin power plug, the same as any video player or protable taper / cd thing has?

    if that is the case ( rather than a power pack like the xbox360) it wont be that.

    try putting the ps2 on its side and see if that works.

    ps2 are famous ( or infamous) for lasers wearing out quickly.

    i had a ps2, the laser needed readjusting and that was it, i was very lucky, especially as i played hundreds upon hundreds of games on it.

    you may find that the disk got scratched, the laser got some fluff on it, the laser got knocked if the ps2 was dropped or fell , the disk is scratched, there is a long hair in the cd tray or 1001 other things. the one thing i very much doubt and that is that it is the power cable.

    phone Sony, have your serial number ready, plus the date you bought it and the proof of purchase and they will swap it over for you.

    The older PS2s had DRE's this one is different, and the discs are brand new, well unused with no scratches and shiny etc.

    It is working just a bit slow at loading

    Cue his flatmate with his side of the story...

    Dont think he'd dare show his face on here... not with the amount of things that ryougas said about him ;-)

    Ye think it has definatly been deleted, can a mod confirm? or should we do a lie detector test...

    Awaiting Jdeals post where he provides the link.........

    'fraid not. I never saw it. Although I could have a good stab at trying to re-enact it. I'll be the flatmate, who wants to be ryouga and who wants to be 'random HUKD member'?

    I will leave this one for the professionals.

    Well I am very offensive this time of night, so I better be the random HUKD member to keep myself in check ;-)

    How the hell will that work then!?

    No ryouga, just a flatmate and a 'random HUKD member'.

    Ok you twisted my leg I'll be ryouga

    pmsl -could be funny!

    I think we better leave this one for another day as I'd most likely be banned if I start that now :giggle:

    random person 1: OMG kill him!

    I know none of you dont like me on here as everyone hates me and my life is a dark abyss but i hope you dont hate me for saying all my life problems out on a random forum because i know all your lifes are perfect.

    Random person 2:

    No dear, our lives arent perfect, just much better than yours.

    Hope that makes you feel better pet!

    It is all my flat mates fault he is making my life a living hell, im just too scared to say it infront of him incase he puts a curse on me. So yeh im laying ALL blame for ALL my life problems on my lazy flat mate.

    random person 1:

    random person 3:
