I just started having a problem with my slim PS2. every time I put a game in it comes out with a deep scratch that goes around the disk, it is the same diameter scratch on each disc. This has already ruined 3 games and i am starting to get frustrated. Any suggestions?

have you tried contacting sony support, they are very nice people and like to know what problems you encounter.

I've had this happen to me. Come to find out that the round piece that the the disc sits on was "out of whack" (it was lopsided), which was causing the discs to scratch on the inner parts of the CD tray. Best option was to replace the entire unit. I could've sent it out to be repaired, but with the shipping costs, it was almost as much to buy a new PS2. If this is the case for you, keep all your wires/cables, as they may come in handy later on :thumbsup:

I believe that ussr1943 is referring to this post HERE.

So your PS2 was out of warrantee and they still fixed it. Awesome! I'm going to call them up and see what they have to say (once I find the number).
