have a broken ps2 woundring if it is repareable
have a broken ps2 woundring if it is repareable –
I just got hold of a broken ps2 which isn't opened (the sticker is still perfectly there). Therefore i was hoping it is repareable...
Well i haven't opened it yet. The problem with the ps2 is that the dvdrom doesnt come out. I have to turn the ps2 in that way so the dvdrom is pointing downwards, only then the dvdrom comes out. Also, when i insert a dvd, alot of loud noices are to be heard (when the ps2 tries to spin the inserted media) but nothing starts/boots (no ps2 game no ps1 game no dvd works). I think the ps2 was probably lost on the ground, but i have no idea what's wrong with it.
I hope u guys can give me some clues or the best would be if u could tell me if it is repareable.
Thx for reading
Why bother repairing, if the sticker is there, and wasn't removed. Go to Sony, and ask them to look at it. (oops, it's not stolen, right ?) I don't think you can repair it without opening the case and removing the sticker (this way your warranty is over). If you decide open it, we can give you more details what to look at.
hehe it's not stolen. But i dont know if it still has warrenty, it is after all v3 (pal). But if Sony will fix it wont i need the receipt? Tell me more about this Sony-fixing-for-free thingy... btw i live in Norway if that helps you.
Sony has a very insteresting "warranty method" all over the world. The easiest thing used to be in North America, it's quite easy to get your things reapaired by Sony (sometimes even for free, you could read many stories about this in this forum aswell). In Europe Sony has a strange habbit, playing with customers. I don't really think V3 is under warranty (it is 1 year if I'm correct in Norway) anymore, but they can look at it. I am sure you can repaier it for less (than Sony), if you have the knowledge and required parts for the machine, but without these two, it might take long and might cost a lot in the end. So it's your decission, if you know some pro near to you, (or you take the risk) do it yourself, otherwise go to Sony. (at least they will say a price that the repair may cost, it's not a must to take that anyway)
pS: in many European countries Sony does nothing with consoles that the warranty sticker was removed from. Not even for a big sum, that's their policy, (userfriendly, right ?) and so customers can't do anything.
