My friend and I are sitting here in the apartment WITH CONTRA: SHATTERED SOLDIER and it WON'T FUCKING WORK BECAUSE THIS @#$*&^@( PS2 WON'T LOAD THE GODDAMN DISK. GOD FUCKING DAMMIT.

We're off to GayStop now to get a new Shattered Soldier in case and to bring the PS2 there and FUCKING BREAK IT OVER THEIR HEADS.

That sucks man. Of course, we are talking about the most fragile mainstream piece of shit console ever built. Too bad it has so many good games.

I guess I'm just lucky as I've never had a problem with my PS2 or my original PS...

SUCCESS!!!! IT WORKS!

Everyone, pay attention:

This game is literally every best moment from Super Contra, Contra III: The Alien War, and Contra: Hard Corp put into a single game. Own it ASAP. Difficulty is perfect, even on easy I got my ass kicked this first time and haven't gotten through the four level one missions just yet.

This game is art, get it immediately, play it, love it.

The music has gone the techno route...ALMOST, whenever I'm about to dismiss a single track as bad some classic riff kicks in and I'm loving it again. :D

On a side note, everything sony and CD drive related breaks. I must be the stupidest fucking consumer, cause I just keep buying their shit.

When my PS games games on my PS2 won't work I go to main menu hit triangle for version click triangle on Playstayion Driver, and change disk speed to fast, and texture maping to smooth.

My first PS2 lasted about 3 months then had read errors , I was lucky enough to get it replaced without cost.

My first PS lasted about a year then it quit reading and the sad thing is it didnt get used all that much.

Sony = poor hardware no matter what it is.

I have horrible luck with hardware... more often than not, I have to take the first one of any hardware I buy (stereo, console, etc.) back to the store.

The PSX and PS2, however, I bought on the first wave of releases, and both have served me well throughout many, many hours of use on each. :)

I F#%$K SONY as well, F%^K upside down. I purchase a new TV, it is one of the Latest model KV-29AR-M66, it does not work with the Neo Geo, you get rolling picture whether in AV or S-Video! It won't even work with Saturn or other brand equipments but only with Sony products!

The service man come today, they don't know the problem and will be back tomorrow. F$%K them!

If it is really the case they made their TV work with Sony's only, I shit and spit on them! I don't pay $1399 for a piece of crap.

To those people who say their ps2's havent broken yet...you're lucky.

neither has mine, and its a launch unit.
neither has the one at my store, and its been dropped 14 times, all by me. the CD tray BARELY functions, but the thing reads discs like candy. and its a first run unit also.


but working at the same game store, trust me, i get to see just how many of these units DO go bad. it really does seem to be a roll-of-the-dice situation.

I guess Toshiba Tvs are going to be Nintendo ready.

My PS2 is also a launch unit and I haven't had a single prob yet. Maybe Sony have been forced to use cheaper parts since they cut the price? Just a guess...

I've returned my Piece of Shit 2 5 times. Every time it's cause the motherfucker stopped reading DVD based games. My PS games always seem to work, no matter what. I treat the motherfucker like solid fucking gold and it fucks me in the ass. FUCK SONY. Too bad they have so many good games on the system.

I bought it launch 2 yrs ago. My fucking extended warranty is just about up, so if it happens again I may go PS2 less for a while, until they drop to $150 or $100. Don't know if I can go that long without playing Dynasty Warriors 3 though... :(

It's a good thing DKEX is banned, or this would have been moved to the War Room already.

beleive it or not its not the ps2 this time, I thought it was, but its Contra it has major booting issues, but if you try to read the disc 2 or 3 times it will work, I have had to return SS once my self, and the guy at EB said that i was the tenth guy today to do it

Sony monitors are truly the worst, I have one of their Trinitron series hooked up via DC VGA and I get to look at two faint horizontal lines (which are now vertical because of tate position) running through the display.

Lousy "feature"...

I hope this thread does not degenerate into a PS2 bashing thread.I had my JPN PS2 since freakin March 2000 and it still works fine.I wonder how you guys handle your PS2s...
Sometimes the DRE problem could be eliminated if you open up the PS2 manually and clean the lens, if you guys know how to do it that is.Sometimes a DVD cleaner works wonders as well.The PS2 does not have that opening lid like the DC, so you can't really clean the lens directly.You could say the PS2 has a PC like opening tray.

Devil-


The problem with the PS2 has little to do with the way people handle it, and more to do with the way Sony decides to make their machines.

Almost every sony CD drive made after the PS2 has used a horrible method of Analog control over the laser inside. This control is through a PRIMITIVE screw.

Screws get loose. Always. No matter what, its nature. If yours does, you get disc read errors.


If your screw doesnt get loose, you're ok. It's a matter of how tightly this screw was set in place on the manufacturing line. And while its also a matter of how much you throw your PS2 around...its a much lesser extent.

If you want to fix your disc read errors [and its not just dust, which it sometimes is, like DevilGans suggested] Open your ps2, adjust the two screws that control the laser [one for CD, and one for DVD] and Viola...good as new PS2.

Now, opening it up and getting past the delicate and HIDDEN ribbons is a bit harder.

yep its true, nothing to do with dust or how well you protect it, early version ps2 will have DREs
