how bad is static for the ps2?
System shuld be fine if its pluged in all the time but ontop of your tv will make alot of heat for you slim.
so as long as the powers plugged in, static will just go through w/o frying anything?
when i put in or take out a disk, i put my finger on the middle round spin thingy (no clue what it's called), and i feel a shock. this has happened many times already. is that bad?
my tv's actually not hot at all on the top. like while it's running, i put my hand on it, and it doesn't feel warm at all. i put my ps2 on a box on the floor, run for a few hours, and it's about the same temp as running on top of the tv

yea, spindle. that's it
it gets shocked sometimes when i'm switching disks. is that bad?
yes that is bad.. that is still a form of a electrical surge. yeah its not has bad has a thunder storm, but to have constant unstable electricy come off your ps2 is not good. does this happen if you use a different t.v? if not try a surge potectoer or even get it off the tv.
shoes on carpet? are you building the static charge when you walk on you carpet?
no, it doesn't go bzz by itself. when i put my finger on the metal dot on the spindle, i shock it. it's cuz of my carpet. i have really long carpet. sigh
