Playstation 2 needed!

5
Found 8th Jul 2007
Well, this morning with the help of my little boy, our playstation 2 has packed up. The tray doesnt go in properly when eject pushed, then lots of grinding noise!!! Even with a disc in and 'pushed' back in, nothing happens. SO, i need a new one!!

Any of you have one for sale?
Or, anyone know of one for sale anywhere - doesnt have to be slimline. Was looking around the £50 mark console only?

Cheers for any help.

Oh, and would this be worth anyhting to anyone or is it fit for the bin??

best bet is ebay.

because of ps3 + xbox360 you are likely to pick one up cheap, most probably be included with games.

Before binning it - open it up and see if the dvd drive is jammed on something, and give it a good clean. You'll be able to sell a faulty ps2 on ebay for bout £20

There are numerous guides on the net about disc read errors - but they tell you how to open them up. Here's one: arstechnica.com/art…ars

Stop when you ahve opened it up

Always better to tinker with it than chuck it :thumbsup:
