    I have been having a problem with my slim ps2. I can load my memory cards and configue my ps2 fine but when i put a cd in the drive it will reset the ps2. I tried this a few times then left it off over night hen tried again. But still it didnt work.

    I have read a lot about laser burning out and everything, i took to repairers and he said the laser has gone but he cannot find a new one...Im in Latvia.....Is there any recommeded websites i can buy the laser from in UK my friend lives there.

    Or is there another solution than buying a new laser?

    Thanks

    Could be a fake or faulty chip. There are a lot of matrix fakes out there. The PS2 would not reset if it had a burnt out laser ,so my guess is it is the modchip that is giving you the problems.

    Does it turn completely off or does it go into stand-by mode? Perhaps there is something wrong with the switch so that it thinks that you are trying to power down when you're only trying to close it.

    just got ps2 back from repair today...He couldn't fix it but also said he is not sure if it is laser mayby the chip?

    Its a matrix chip, when i turn on ps2 without cd it loads to browser screen if then put cd bang 1 second and off to standby mode.

    If i load with a cd it turns on and same time as matrix name on screen it turns off to stand-by.

    Is there any combinations i can use to reset bios on chip or something i can try?

    Thanks

    Then you might have a problem cause you cant put the bios if you tried ot it will switch off, it sorta sounds like sumtin to do with your chip or power

    your chip might not be functioning properly

    the power is greater than needed because of something faulty in your ps2 when it trys to read a disc too much power and it switches off

    this isnt like anyhting ive heard before did it do this straight away afta you got it chipped?
