Did showtime's PS2 work after he shut it off?

Try getting a DVD lense cleaner and running it in the PS2. If that doesn't work, your PS2 has gone out on you. Best plan? Go buy a new one at Best Buy and get the 2 year PRP. It'll cover it if this happens again. I can answer more specific questions if you want, just let me know......

inFins how come you don't join the FML???? By the way...Show Time cleaned the inside and it is working well now. You really do not need to buy a new one, If it indeed broke. If it broke call the Ps2 company...then say you bought this ps2 less than a year ago but you do not have the receipt and it broke. If you are kind, courteous (sp?) and patient they will offer to send you a new one once you send your old one....it'll take about 2 weeks for delivery BUT it will save you alot of money.

They only do that sometimes. I wouldn't count on it happening inFINSible. Its worth a try though.......

I should try to get them to replace it before I do what showtime did???

PT, I don't have Madden......and I've only played it once.....I was pretty good on offense but totally screwed up whichever guy I was playing on defense....:(

Try to clean it first. If that doesn't work, then call Sony and see what they can do. If they don't help, your last option is to buy a new one......

ive went through 2 PS2's already cuz of that, truth is theyre defected, your PS2 is not reading the DVD's, luckly for me i bought a 4 yr warranty through electronics boutique....It usually happens when you tip over your PS2 upside down so be careful, at least thats what the guy at EB told me.
