    I keep coming across comments suggesting that if your PS2 Slim was made b4 Sep04 it may well have laser burnout probs. How can one tell when their PS2 Slim was made. Tks in advance.

    Check the date code on the bottom...Im an Installer and Ive had problems with date codes older than 4D..I have a 4D as my own and no probs with the magic chip 5KX with no laser diode fix...and Ive done many others with the date code 4D but I had 2 4C's burn out...just my experience ....take it for what its worth..I know I will not touch any thing older than 4D ..Peace. By the way the date code is above the white bar code on the bottom..slightly to the right of the middle...its a small square with the code in it.

    What do you mean by date codes that are "older?" What would the letter/number combination for an "older" date code be?

    4D means: for is the year 2004 and D is because the split the year in 4 parts (A, B, C and D) and three months for each. So D means was made between october, november and december of 2004.
    Those which was made before it had lot of problems with their lasers.
