MY PS2 is a piece of ****

11 replies 1 views Edited Aug 6, 2004
I am so sick of my PS2 i bought it when it for came out for 300 bucks. it worked for a year 1/2, then i kept sayin disc read error, disk read error. so i call sony and he says some of the first PS2's sent out from Japan were defective. so i send it in and get it fixed. I get it back it works i was so happy!So i play for another year and it breaks. same problem w/ the disk read error. some of my games would come up where it said PLAYSTATION 2 then the vwump sound then it would freezes and i would have to smack the top of the PS2 for like 5 mins to work. thats only for some of my games. I dont get y i keeps breaking and im getting mad, i havnt bought a game in 6 months because of it. I love Playstation and all but its really getting me annoyed...

My PS2 is really ticking me off too. The last couple of weeks it has been having constant Disc Read Errors for games that used to work. Some of the games it'll say that they're not even PlayStation discs.
GameCube is starting to look good.

Well hey they cant do much try calling them up again and see if they will re-repair it if not, then go to game stop sell it for like $100 then buy a new one which is like $199 canadian so just add another $100 into the deal and you got a new PS2. Or you could always try repairing it your self by opening it but you might just make it worse.

Yup thats true for example many people on these baords have had to by multiple mics cause they dont last forever or lets say they were made cheaply and already came with a death sentence when the consumer plugged it into his/her PS2 , so its the same for the first few PS2's.

As long as the problem is related to DRE's Sony will continue to fix it for free. It doesnt matter if you send it in 5 times, it'll be a free repair 5 times over. You pay shipping to them, they pay shipping back to you.

Yes , they take the Ps-2's which don't work , i don't know how much they'll give you for it in U.S $$ , my friend got $105 (Canadian) when he traded his DRE infected Ps-2 in ...  and he got a $105 of in store credit ..

,

If you trade your Ps-2 in , you will get x amount , however it will be in-store credit , if you want cash for it they will give you 20% less the value (amount offered) ..

,

If you trade your broken Ps-2 in they will refurbish it into a new one .. in other words they'll replace the defective part and put it up for sale as a Refurbished Ps-2 ..

,

Yes , if they offer you a $100 (U.S) yeah guess you have to pay $50 more + Tax , and you'll have a new PS-2  ! yay !
