    I was playing and after a while it shut off and then the reset button started blinking, I turned it off and then started again and after 10 min. it started blinking again. I cleaned the lens and it was working fine then the next day I played a different game and the same thing happened. Has anyone had the problem before and what can I do?
    Thanks

    Sounds like your heatsink fan is shot. PS2 will shut off automatically if it over heats to prevent permanent damage. Turn it on and listen for a fan running. Hope that helps.

    I agree. The ps2 only does that when it is overheating. Check your fan like he said and make sure it is plugged in or that the wire is not cut.
