Can you also fix the "please insert disc in ps1 or ps2 format" error with
ishouldplayzelda: this fix doesn't actually address the specific problem. take the top off
your ps2 and there should be a tiny switch on top of the on/off/reset
button's board that can be pressed down. look toward the back of the middle
of the console and there is another small switch that controls disc
reading. turn it on and press these two switches down and the disc will
spin. my fix was to put some very small pieces of tape on the switch in the
back to allow the lid arm to actually press it down.
DetergentSwitch: This worked perfectly!! I was a bit hesitant about opening a console, but
it now works flawlessly. A tip for those opening it for the first time: the
screws are hidden by the little square pieces, take those off and you'll
find the screws, all except two squares. I cleaned it with a Q-tip and
sprayed some glass cleaner on it and it did the trick. Also, the screws
were kind of a pain to put back in so just be mindful of that. This was a
very simple fix and much better than putting all of my college books on top
just so it could read the freaking disc!
Andrew B: What do I clean it with?
Luity Alfhadogs: I didn't have much faith on this video but i wanted to give it the chance
at least, so i did it and i need to say that, at the moment, the
playstation is working perfectly. Of course i can't ask very much because
it's like 7 years old already but, as i'm saying, at the moment is working,
maybe in two weeks time it'll be freaked again...Let's hope that's not
happening. Cheers lad! :) take care
