Here's what happened. Everytime I was to play my ps2, the laser arm would start clicking as it would not stay in the threads. So I lubricated the threads as well as the rods the laser guides on. So finally the clicking went away. I was happy. So I start playing my game again, no clicking. I notice however something strange. The disc seemed to be running a little more slowly. Then it froze on me. What the hell is wrong with my ps2 now. It seems one problem after the next, and I am not spending $45 to send my ps2 to sony. Somebody help me!!
