PS2 turns itself off randomly
So I've installed green dot with neofix iii on my slim ps2 (v12, SCPH-0008 i guess). At first there was a problem with booting games - I've got black screen after sony logo. Solved by upgrading firmware.
But now I wonder about two things:
1) Is ps2 laser so sensitive to the quality of discs? I have two disks of FFX and I periodically switch them because my ps2 often can't read some parts of disks (luckily, different parts). Besides it can't read CD-RW and DVD-RW at all (well, at least the ones i tried to read) :(
2) (THE problem) Sometimes console just power itself off in a middle of something. And when I say power off - I don't mean standby, it shuts down tight so it won't respond to reset button. And diode also don't glow. And the only way to power it on again is to unplug it from AC adaptor and plug again. Is this neofix's doing? When i installed and tested it, it sent console to standby mode after 3 seconds. Just as manual says.
