Hi all, I have a version 4 Sony PS2 and its being really weird. First some of the buttons were doing strange things, so naturally I thought it was the controller, so I threw it out. Next controller worked, but then started doing the same thing, and it got under my skin so I smashed it. By this stage I have gotten another controller out, but it does THE SAME thing, so im screamin that I chucked 2 controllers out when it must have been the PS2. So its DIY time. I got the vacuum onto it, to suck all the dust out. Then when I plug it in it makes electrical crackling. So i unplugged it fairly rapidish. Got the hair dryer out, it smelt like burnt plastic then went away. It worked again, for about 3 days. NOW all it will do is:
Will play any game but only on SSX Tricky will you be able to actually do anything with the controller
SSX Tricky = Not a glitch
Anything Else = No response, like its not even plugged in.

R31 S3 GXE - The Daily - Gotta love box!
dont crack it open (void seal inside) other wise you cant send it off to sony for repair if thats what you wana do.. u'll pay an arm and a leg for it but yeh...
our ps2 has decided not to work... first off it wouldnt play dvds we figured eh we can live with that... then it decided that it couldnt read the ps2 disc (meh ok ill get the psx games out) had the psx games out work for months... now all of a sudden it doesnt even read that.. but as far as im concerned just throw it out on a main high way and let it get run over... then go buy and xbox or another ps2 $180buxish

sounds like the input controller packed up - I say throw it into the sea and acquire an XBOX of either variety. An early one at least is easily modified and can function as a media box too, worth the coin.
If I gave my MX6 as much attention as I gave my Fiero, I'd be around here far more often!
it is becuase the PS3 is coming out. Sony designed all the ps2's to die within a certain time just as ps3 comes out so u buy it or are left with no gaming goodness. Same as ps1-ps2. Didnt anybody elses ps1 mysteriosly stop working.....
Besides the ps3 will flop big time i think cost way to much everyone seems to be interested in the wii i think it will win overall cause u can get a wii for a great price and still get a xbox360 for below a ps3
