hi, i have a v7 model. my ps2 works fine, but i have found that something was wrong. when you turn on your ps2 without games, you go to the BROWSER and SYSTEM CONFIGURATION menu. i was in my girlfriend house and i notice a blue circle moving around the screen. but when i got home and turn on my v7 ps2 model and went to the BROWSER and SYSTEM CONFIGURATION menu my blue circle was not moving. it was static. it was like a big dot over the "S" of SYSTEM CONFIGURATION. i hope you know what i'm talking about.
